Julio Franco and Casey Blake were born on this day. Both are former Tribers. There is a chance that either of them could be pulled from any given pack of cards in our break. So far as I have been able to determine (that is, I did a quick search), we have not encountered either fellow during our season-long pack break.
Anyone want to hedge bets? I'm betting we won't find any here either. And, for the record, I have not even reached into the box yet... Drum roll please... Wait, why are we rolling drums, anyway?

Well, no Blake and certainly no Franco, but man what a group of cards and players here! Love the Turkey Red insert and the retro Munson card is nice, too. The selection of players worked out pretty well, I'd say.
