Tribecards from Outer Space: Repack Revenge

The Free Agent Draft will be later this evening. In the meantime...

Continuing from yesterday's post, I am opening the packs of cards found in a 10-pack repack I picked up at Target on Saturday. I have noticed that many of these packs have the Target $1.59 UPC sticker on them. I have a feeling the local distro guy opened the boxes, searched the packs, then replaced the packs with target bargain bin jobbies.  Please not that I have no proof nor am I accusing. I'm just making an observation.

How about we open a pack of 2011 Topps Lineage Value Pack. 14 cards per pack.

Aramis Ramirez - Cubs - Pedersej (Wahoo!!)
Brett Anderson - Athletics - Wicked4Life (Wahoo!!)
Frank Thomas Diamond Anniversary Chrome - White Sox - Brauer (Wahoo!!)
Mariano Rivera Stand-up - Yankees - Brownpg (Wahoo!!)
Chipper Jones - Braves - James.A.Haynes (Wahoo!!)
Ty Cobb - Tigers - Bp_weber (Wahoo!!)
Paul O'Neill - Yankees - Brownpg (Wahoo!!)
Evan Longoria - Rays - Tim_Gretchen (Wahoo!!)
Mike Schmidt - Phillies - Dawgbones (Wahoo!!)
Logan Morrison - Marlins - Wicked4Life (Wahoo!!)
Tony Perez - Reds - FREE AGENT
Kevin Youkilis - Red Sox - Ajpca (Wahoo!!)
Albert Belle - Indians (Wahoo!) - davidinark (Wahoo!!)
Shin-Soo Choo - Indians (Wahoo!) - FREE AGENT

Well, look what we have here! Only two of the cards came up as free agents! And, two of the cards in the pack are Tribers! Repack or not, I call that a very nice pack of cards! A mix of today's hit and yesterday's favorites.

How about another one? 2008 UD Spectrum. 4 cards per pack.

Cole Hamels - Phillies - Dawgbones (Wahoo!!)
Brian Roberts - Orioles - James.A.Haynes (Wahoo!!)
Ian Snell - Pirates - FREE AGENT
Russell Martin - Dodgers - gcrl (Wahoo!!)

Sweet! Another pack with a majority hit ratio! Congrats, managers!

But, wait! There's more:

2007 Upper Deck Series One. 8 cards per pack.

Jimmy Rollins - Phillies - Dawgbones (Wahoo!!)
Anibal Sanchez - Marlins - FREE AGENT
Tony Gwynn Jr - Brewers - FREE AGENT(?)*
Cla Meredith - Padres - FREE AGENT
Khalil Greene - Padres - FREE AGENT
David Ross - Reds - James.A.Haynes (Wahoo!!)
Akinori Otsuka - Rangers - FREE AGENT
Andy Pettitte - Yankees (shown in Astros uni) - Samuel Pair (Wahoo!!)

Way to go, folks!! Congrats to those that snagged more cards for the collections. A special congrats goes to James and Dawgbones for pulling a card for EACH of the packs today! Nice!

*There was a discussion some time ago about Sr's and Jr's (Ripken, Gwynn, etc). I do not remember what was decided about Gwynn Jr (if anything).


  1. Unusual to pull two Tribers and not to post pictures of either! I'm surprised that Choo is a free agent... not for long!

    1. Well, I was only posting 9 pics and I opted to post the first 9 pulls. :-) In retrospect, I should have at least posted the two Tribers! Haha!

  2. Haha, well, I decided to add the other Lineage cards after all. :-)

  3. Alright, first card pulled of one of my guys.

    Thank goodness for the weekly card draft.
