A lot of neat pulls in the group. Of course, the Zambrano was *the* pull here. Do I wish I had left it unRIPped? Nah. But I do want to know the odds of pulling certain special rip-only players. Are the actual rip minis have lower odds than the rip cards that house them? You would think they'd have to have lower odds of popping up.
I will post a single post with all scored finds with a final tally. That post will appear after my next one: Packs 17-24...
