Welcome to the Friday edition of "182 packs." Wow, did you know we only have SIX more Fridays left in the regular season!? Where did it all go? I have no idea. But, I do know at least two things: 1) I plan to post a "card count" in the near future to give everyone playing along an idea as to how many cards they should have in their selected category/team/player up to the point I calculate it; and 2) I've got more wax to bust.
Tonight's tiny bit of cardboard goodness comes from 1996 Leaf Hobby.
Moises Alou - Expos
Ramon Martinez - Dodgers
Ed Sprague - Blue Jays
Fred McGriff - Braves
Randy Johnson - Mariners
Jason Schmidt - Braves - Gold Leaf Rookie
Ricky Bottalico - Phillies
Carl Everett - Mets
Ken Caminiti - Padres
Barry Larkin - Reds/Mo Vaughn - Red Sox - Checklist
Some of the cards show the players behind the border and other cards have the players in front of it. The Alou, among others, actually show a combination. His left leg is behing the border but his right leg is in front of it. It's a very strange effect, as though he is stepping through the window in the card.
