A Major Award! It's Italian! "Fra-Jeelee!"

My Major Award came today (Friday)! When I went to the mailbox, waiting inside was my 2008 Bowman Hobby Box from! To help share in the celebration, I opted to take a few pics and have my recently-turned-six year-old daughter help with the box break! I'm posting a few pics of her opening packs and then some of the cards from the box break as well (nothing that will bore you to tears, I hope). However, I will list out what each pack held, just for good measure.... (scans will not necessarily match the pack listings):
