2006 Topps Series 2 Rack Pack


Hope everyone had a fun 4th of July weekend.  Let's put a quick one up tonight.  Time to clean out the scanned pictures folder a little...it's a rack pack of 2006 Topps Series 2!

This is the 6th (!?!?!?!) pack of 2006 on the site, not counting the Update series.  A couple of years ago, Madding posted a Series 2 rack pack in a different configuration.  This one has 18 cards and 3 vintage (aka junk wax) cards that were ever so much popular to include in packs back in the day.   Let's see what we got:

Top Section:
#505 – Jason Schmidt
#510 – J.D. Drew (back)
#615 – Arizona Diamondbacks
#494 – Kip Wells
#539 – Juan Rincon
#508 – Danny Haren
#530 – Carlos Guillen

Back in 2006, you could call Dan Haren Danny.  These days, we still refer to Kip Wells as, er, Kip...or does he go by Robert now since he's out of baseball?

Middle Section (covered in an extra wrapper to protect those vintage cards):
#544 – Mark Bellhorn
#501 – Emil Brown
#TP-JT – Jim Thome (Trading Places)
#MHR46 – Mickey Mantle Home Run History
No# - Sluggers Fantasy Baseball card (not pictured)
1989 Topps #724 – Jerry Don Gleaton
1989 Topps #509 – Bud Black
1989 Topps #627 – Greg Harris
Checklist 3 of 3
No# - Work Hard, Get Cards (not pictured)

It's real 1989 Topps cards!  And real late '80s mustaches!

Bottom Section:
#549 – Erik Bedard
#486 – Wily Mo Pena
#453 – Daniel Cabrera
#648 – Brothers Orlando
#512 – Eric Milton
#526 – Ryan Wagner
#450 – Derrek Lee

Anyway, that's the pack.  Hopefully we can close the book on 2006 Topps.  More later...thanks for reading!

Nice pack.
1989 Vintage in 2006? Hmm guess Topps considers the upper cut off for vintage to be 15 years? (1991 in 2006 days)

Or if someone finds some 1996 in one of those it would be 10 years.
