1998 Topps Stadium Club Hobby Edition (Evens)

Today I bring to you a pack of 1998 Topps Stadium Club. About a year ago I broke a pack of the odds. This time, we do the evens.

Shall we?

Staring things off are three of the premier pitchers of the 90's. Okay, one sub-.500 pitcher and two of the premier pitchers of the 90's.

Lankford is the only player to have 200 home runs and 200 sb's as a Cardinal. We all know Sosa's credentials.

Here are two of the more common inserts. Andy Benes had a pretty solid career, racking up exactly 2000 K's. Nunez plays in Worcester, MA for the Can-Am league now.

Here is an upside down checklist and Brian McRae who never quite lived up to his father Hal's legacy.

The royal court inserts fall at about 1:36 packs so apparently I got lucky. This is a nice hit. Cool 90's insert.

I'm happy with how this pack turned out. Are you?

Pretty nice pack. If you ever want to trade that Ripken, let me know.

Aren't 200 home runs and 200 dingers the same thing? (Lankford)

I meant 200 stolen bases, good catch

Nice Ripken!
