Tribecards from Outer Space: Three-for-Thursday

Good evening, folks! My wife and I spent a very nice evening that started with supper at my Mom's place with my Aunt and Uncle from Pittsburgh and then we went to my son's Baccalaureate program.  Afterward, I sprung for 1/2-price Sonic shakes all-around.

Now, it is time to rip open some wax!

Let's start with 1991 O-Pee-Chee Premier. 7 cards per pack.

Scott Sanderson - Yankees - Free Agent
Lance Dickson - Cubs - Free Agent
Gary Carter - Dodgers - Paul Hadsall (Wahoo!!)
Ryne Sandberg - Cubs - Pedersej (Wahoo!!)**
Pedro Guerrero - Cardinals - Netchuc (Wahoo!!)**
Alex Fernandez - White Sox - Free Agent
Dwight Evans - Orioles - Free Agent

Say what!? Dwight Evans is a free agent!? Holy cow, that is awesome!  Congrats to the managers with player pulls!

** The Sandberg and Guerrero cards were sealed together. There is a zig-zag pattern where it looks like the pack sealer missed and bonded the two card together. They have been separated, but there is obvious damage to both. Sorry folks!

The second pack tonight is 2007 Upper Deck First Edition. 10 cards per pack.

Ruddy Lugo - Rays - Free Agent
Joaquin Arias - Rangers - Free Agent
Marcus Thames - Tigers - Free Agent
Bobby Jenks - White Sox - Free Agent
Chad Cordero - Nationals - Von.Spalding (Wahoo!!)
Michael Cuddyer - Twins - Free Agent
Ken Griffey Jr - Reds - Patrick Smith (Wahoo!!)
Bill Hall - Brewers - Thorzul (Wahoo!!)
Brad Radke - Twins - Free Agent
Nomar Garciaparra Pennant Chasers - Dodgers - Ajpca (Wahoo!!)

Oh, man, that Pennant Chaser is a cool card. It has a neat modern look but with a throwback style. I know that seems contradictory, but I can't think of another way to describe it. You'll have to see for yourself.

The third pack tonight is 2006 Topps Series 2. 12 cards per pack.

Curt Schilling - Red Sox - Brauer (Wahoo!!)
Johan Santana - Twins - Pedersej (Wahoo!!)
Russ Ortiz - DBacks - Free Agent
Michael Cuddyer - Twins - Free Agent
Cliff Lee - Indians (Wahoo!) - Dawgbones (Wahoo!!)
Scott Podsednik - White Sox - Free Agent
David DeJesus - Royals - Josh Denhartog (Wahoo!!)
US Constitution Nathaniel Gorham
Ian Kinsler - Rangers - JRBeasley (Wahoo!!)
Mark Woodyard - Tigers - Free Agent
Rob Mackowiak - White Sox - Free Agent
Aramis Ramirez/Derrek Lee Cub Corners - Pedersej (Wahoo!!)

Well, that worked out for Pedersej that both featured players on the Cubs Corners card are HIS players! Nice score on the Cliff Lee for Dawgbones, and a big congrats to the other managers who added a few more cards to their respective collections!


  1. I hit on one of my free agents! Yay!
    It's damaged! Boo!

  2. I had only drawn one guy with my original picks then I got two in two days (Pedro & Nomar) but they are both in the wrong uniform!


  3. Haha, you guys sound just like Major League managers!
