Today I opened a pack of Onyx Vintage Extended Edition Baseball.
Each box comes with one pack, each pack has four cards, including two on-card autos.
I have never opened an Onyx product before and had no idea what to expect going on, I just saw it on the shelf and said "hey that's a reasonable price for a pack with two on-card autos".
The pack is sterile. Just a pack. Nothing on it. But it's one pack per box, so no surprises. If you happened to grab it randomly not knowing what it was you would probably be pleasantly surprised when you opened it.
First up is Mason Albright from the Angels system, although his uni looks a little more Colorado. 3 games under his belt in MiLB thus far.
Next up is Benny Montgomery from the Rockies system, although his uni looks a little more Cincy. He hit .340 in 14 games last season.
Here is Alexis Hernandez. He is 17. Drafted by the Cubs. He looks 17. These young prospect autos are kinda weird, although I have one of Joey Gallo so you never know.

Continuing to check off packs we haven't tagged yet, today we have 1990 Leaf Baseball Series 2.
Here we go...
Dante Bichette... what a fun slugger to watch. Got to catch him at the old-timers game a few years back. Danny Darwin may best be known for a some clubhouse scuffles but was the NL ERA leader in 1990.
Craig Lefferts, as of 2020, is the last pitcher to hit a walk off home run. Lee Guetterman was something of a utility pitcher, going where he was needed.

I won a hobby box of 2022 Topps Series 1 and these boxes come with a hobby exclusive 4 card pack. I wasn't going to buy a box but wasn't turning down a free one. The cards in this back are throw back designs to 1987. with some shiny added features they look nice and seem to be more sturdy stock from the original 87 card stock. here are the 4 cards I received I heard there are some autographs that I didn't get 1 probably really long odds to get one of those.

1993 O-Pee-Chee Premier is a small 132-card set for the Canadian market. Another example of "how have we not opened one of these yet?"
Here we go...
When you hear Travis Fryman, you think of the 90's in baseball. His career was pretty reflective of that, appearing in 5 All-Star games between 1992 and 2000. Rene Arocha pitched in just four major league seasons but finished with a winning record.
