Tribecards from Outer Space: Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all the  mothers out there reading along! Okay, I would guess that on a good day, I'd have maybe one, two tops. But, it's the thought that counts, as my own mother often says.

I will run the Free Agent Draft later this evening (well, it'll be later tonight, really).  In the mean time, I am opening a pack of 1994 Topps Baseball Series 1 and a dime bag of cards that came with a deal I got from CardsOne back when I bought a bunch of these packs during one of their specials.

1994 Topps. 12 cards per pack.

Paul Assenmacher - Yankees - Captain Canuck (Wahoo!!)
Derrick May - Cubs - FREE AGENT
Shane Mack - Twins - FREE AGENT
Jose Lind - Royals - FREE AGENT
John Dopson - Red Sox - FREE AGENT
Rickey Gutierrez Gold - Padres - FREE AGENT
Jim Abbott - Yankees - P-Town Tom (Wahoo!!)
Roberto Mejia - Rockies - FREE AGENT
Lee Smith - Yankees - FREE AGENT
Dennis Boucher - Expos - FREE AGENT
Jose Valentin Future Star - Brewers - FREE AGENT
Matt Walbeck Future Star - Cubs - FREE AGENT

Well, we went 2-for-12, which is usually how my two favorite teams play during any given run. haha! Congrats to Captain and Tom!

Wow! Now, there is a great pack break. A whole bunch of cards (okay, a little more than 25) and most of them were snagged up! We did hit a few free agents that surprised me though. Based on what we've opened up just this weekend alone, it looks to be a pretty competitive draft this coming Friday!  Happy Mother's Day!
