Tribecards from Outer Space: Draft and Packs

Sorry for yesterday, folks. Just too pooped to post anything of significance. Today, we've got the 7th Free Agent Draft and a few packs to make up for it!

Here is the list of managers randomized:
Here is the list with choices before the draft took place:

And here are the final results of the draft:

Congrats to the managers that did a better job than I did in picking your drafts! I thought I had a solid shot at several. So much for that! Haha!

Current Player/Manager list:

Now, let's rip some wax:

2013 Gypsy Queen. 6 cards per pack.

Jurickson Profar - Rangers - IrishTribeFan (Wahoo!!)
Jim Johnson - Orioles - Free Agent
Yadier Molina Mini - Cardinals - E_Rose (Wahoo!!)
Ryan Braun Sliding Stars - Brewers - Thorzul (Wahoo!!)
Gio Gonzalez - Nationals - Wicked4Life (Wahoo!!)
Adrian Gonzalez - Dodgers - Dominicfdny (Wahoo!!)

Very cool cards, folks! Nice grabs for each manager!

Next up, 2007 UD Future Stars Baseball. 4 cards per pack.

Howie Kendrick - Angels - gcrl (Wahoo!!)
Josh Beckett - Red Sox - Free Agent
Ryan Howard - Phillies - Snglddy (Wahoo!!)
Gary Sheffield - Tigers - ScottCrawfordOnCards (Wahoo!!)

Seriously?? Beckett is an unclaimed player? That seems odd. I will go back and double-check to make sure we don't have another "Santana Incident" on our hands. Otherwise, I can him going for high-claim next go-round.

And, finally, let's do some 1989 Topps. 15 cards per pack.

Eric Davis Reds Leaders - Reds - pedersej (Wahoo!!)
Checklist 133-264
Kent Hrbek - Twins - Free Agent
Frank DiPino - Cubs - Free Agent
Craig Worthington - Orioles - Free Agent
Floyd Youmans - Expos - Free Agent
Candy Sierra - Reds - Free Agent
Mike MacFarlane - Royals - Free Agent

Uhhh... So, our pack had EIGHT cards in it?? I call rip off. I was duped, man. I'd rather have folks take the the stars and put in commons than to just take out half the cards and leave me with nothing. If memory serves, this was part of a CardsOne deal. I'll email them and let them know I got gypped. In the event I am asked to return the pack in order to get a replacement, I will keep everyone posted.

Wow, congrats to Pedersej for pulling the only player out of the pack with a manager! Checklists will be randomly inserted at the end of the season, in case I forgot to mention that before.


  1. no details on the double header??? How did the little 2nd baseman/center fielder/ shortstop do?

    just please, please tell me that she's not a DH...

    1. Hahaha! Oh, she went 0-for-2 (walked at one at-bat) and scored a run in the first game. Second game, I believe she went 1-for-2. Her team won both games. She plays third base. :-) No DH for my little girl. Oh, she did have a put-out in the second game at third base, too.

    2. sweet! a 3rd sacker! I love it.

      Maybe one day she can take over for Chipper.
