182 Days of Baseball - Day 150 - Let's Get Crazy

Wow. We are nearly down to one month of baseball left in the season. Man, how did that happen!?  At this point in the season, the Indians and Pirates have essentially fallen off the map.  The A's are on a 7-game winning streak. The Nationals are leading their division AND have the highest winning percentage in league.  Yeah, a crazy season.

Let's see if we can get crazy.  Let's try a pack of 2005 Playoff Prestige "Fans of the Game."

Frank Thomas - White Sox
Jeff Bagwell - Astros
Mike Cameron - Mets - Game-Used Jersey Collection
Ryan Howard - Phillies
Sammy Sosa - Cubs
Denny Bautista - Royals

The wrapper says "5 Cards per Pack," but we got six.  Not only did we get six, we got a Game-Used! Okay, for now on, I need to say, "Let's get crazy!" If I had known that was what it takes to pull a little mojo out of our hat, I would have been doing that all along...


  1. I haven't read all of the last 149 packs. Is that the first 'hit' you've pulled?

  2. I think it is the first 'hit'.

    I'm saddened by the realization that in a month I won't be able to live vicariously through Dave and open a pack of cards each morning. Bummer.

    Dave, have you thought about doing the pack-a-day thing again next season?

  3. As far as "Game-used," I believe it is the first one. We've had other cool inserts along the way. I will be doing this next season (barring something from stopping me, of course), but I plan a different participation program. Next season, I am going to do something like a "fantasy league." I don't have all the details figured out yet, but basically, folks will pick a player to add to their "roster" each week. They will get all the cards of that player. I figure some players will go unclaimed, and those will be handed out randomly across all the participants. Like I said, I don't have all the details yet. But, I think it will be a fun twist.
