Opening Day Pack Buster!

It's here! It's here! Ladies and gentlemen, it is FINALLY Opening Day in the MLB!

I meant to post this earlier in the day, but you know, today is also EASTER! I mean  come on... Easter and Opening Day on the same day!? That's like Christmas!

I also spent a chunk of time (admittedly, a much bigger chunk than I had thought it would take) pulling in the information from the drafts we've had and putting them into an Access database for (what I hope to be) quick reference when busting packs.  We'll see how that goes.  Though, as I type this, I remembered that I did not grab the mascot picks. I will get those in there, no worries!

I tried to find a pack of Opening Day cards in the box, but there are none to be found. So, I reached in and grabbed a random pack.

1999 Upper Deck Encore - 6 cards per pack.

Brian Giles - Pirates - FREE AGENT
David Wells - Blue Jays - FREE AGENT
Jeff Bagwell - Astros - SamuelPair (Wahoo!!)
Kevin Young - Pirates - FREE AGENT
Rickey Henderson - Mets - Patrick (Wahoo!!)
Ben Grieve - Athletics (Pure Excitement Insert) - FREE AGENT

Well, we got two hits on Opening Day! Congrats, Samuel and Patrick!  We also added a couple really nice cards to the Free Agent list!  Remember, all the Free Agents will be up for grabs starting Friday through Sunday!  I'll let you pick the ones you want, line everyone up for a draft, then let 'er rip!  Draft results should be available late Sunday nights.  Any undrafted players go into the mix for the next week!


  1. Oh man... It's like scratching off a lottery ticket with every pack ripping.

    Life is good!

  2. Haha! Glad to be the bearer of such entertainment and expectancy!
