182 Packs of Baseball - 118 - Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin...

I was fortunate enough to be involved with a live, interactive virtual field trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame earlier today (Tuesday).  The group of folks participating examined the economics of baseball from a Middle School level.  It was great fun!  It is definitely one of the perks of being employed where I am.  A discussion after the program came up regarding baseball cards, values, etc. Of course, the 'junk wax' era of the 90's came up.

Well, today is no junk wax day.  I pulled a pack of 2007 Upper Deck Future Stars Baseball out of the box.  There are a whopping four cards in the pack, according to the label. Let's see what we have:

Johan Santana - Twins
Aaron Harang - Reds
Justin Verlander - Tigers
Alfonso Soriano - Cubs

The cards are very 2000's with their pseudo-techy look and weird font choice.  Definitely "future" stars in here, though!
