Tribecards from Outer Space: Three for Thursday

This will probably come back to bite me in the butt, however, I am going to try and keep up with the 2-for-Tuesday, 3-for-Thursday thing I've started. I think it adds some fun to the breaks. It is also an attempt to appease you before I drop some not-so-good news: Friday's break and Draft will be late. Unlike the last time said this, Friday really will be late because of my son's baseball game.  His team (Prescott Curley Wolves) has made the Regionals, so I will be cheering him and his teammates on Friday night. I will get things posted, but it could be very late (possibly even very early Saturday morning, depending on when we get back). Wish him luck!

In the meantime, let's rip some wax!

The first pack tonight is 2012 Allen & Ginter. 6 cards per pack.

Ben Revere - Twins - FREE AGENT
Alex Rios - White Sox - akgonzolyn (Wahoo!!)
Nyjer Morgan - Brewers - FREE AGENT
Sputnik I Historical Turning Points
Brandon Belt Mini - IrishTribeFan (Wahoo!!)
Billy Ray Butler What's in a Name - Royals - Josh Denhartog (Wahoo!!)
Solve the Mystery card.

Why include the Mystery card? Well, the contest expires 7/31/2013. Has anyone won this yet? Does anyone care?

The second pack tonight is 2006 Fleer Tradition. 10 cards per pack.

Michael Barrett - Cubs - FREE AGENT
Garret Anderson - Angels - FREE AGENT
Joel Zumaya - Tigers - BP_Weber (Wahoo!!)
Tim Hudson - Braves - James Haynes (Wahoo!!)
C.C. Sabathia - Indians (Wahoo!) - BrownPG (Wahoo!!)
Prince Fielder - Brewers - Tim_Gretchen (Wahoo!!)
Erik Bedard - Orioles - FREE AGENT
Alex Rodriguez - Yankees - Matthew Wilson (Wahoo!!)
Pedro Martinez - Mets - ajpca (Wahoo!!)
Brian Anderson - White Sox - FREE AGENT

Nice! We scored more hits than misses. And, each lucky manager walked away with just one card. That's a fair distribution, I'd say.

The third pack of the evening comes from 1989 Topps - 15 cards per pack. See, kids, these were the good days when you actually got more cards for your money.

Henry Cotto - Mariners - FREE AGENT
Denny Martinez - Expos - FREE AGENT
Rickey Henderson - Yankees - Patrick Smith (Wahoo!!)
Hubie Brooks - Expos - FREE AGENT
Kevin McReynolds - Mets - FREE AGENT
Rick Schu - Orioles - FREE AGENT
Scott Fletcher - Rangers - FREE AGENT
Padres Leaders - Roberto Alomar - akgonzolyn (Wahoo!!)
Dave Bergman - Tigers - BP_Weber (Wahoo!!)
Marvin Freeman - Phillies - FREE AGENT
Mario Diaz - Mariners - FREE AGENT
Donn Pall - White Sox - FREE AGENT
Gary Carter - Mets - Paul.Hadsall (Wahoo!!)
Mike Bielecki - Cubs - Bo Rosny (Wahoo!!)
Tony Oliva Turn Back the Clock - Twins - Wicked4Life (Wahoo!!)

Well, we certainly ended that pack strongly, didn't we!? Congrats to the managers who scored some great players for their collections. Any time you can pull a Carter AND Henderson from an 80's pack, that's a good day in my book.


  1. I think the same guys cracked the code again, they get like this crazy auto set from topps for doing it. Yep confirmed same guys

    1. Thanks for the research! Nice work. So, it makes you wonder if Topps will drop it soon since no one else seems to want to do it or can do it faster than those three. Interesting read.
