Tribecards from Outer Space: Two-for-Tuesday, Literally.

Howdy, folks! Well, any of you out there affected by the nationwide shutdown of Centurylink's Internet services!? I was, at the house. Our DSL was spotty at best for a while and then completely dead. When I finally reached customer service, they said there was a known outage. As the day progressed, word got out that this was a HUGE outage. Ouch.

Well, things are hopping now, so I am going to bust out a Two-for-Tuesday!

First up: 1988 Donruss. 1 puzzle and 15 cards per pack.

Stan Musial puzzle 22, 23, 24 - Cardinals - Stealing Home (Wahoo!!)
Terry McGriff - Reds - FREE AGENT
Steve Balboni - Royals - FREE AGENT
Scott Sanderson - Cubs - FREE AGENT
Chuck Finley - Angels - Dawgbones (Wahoo!!)
Jeff Ballard - Orioles - FREE AGENT
Bob Welch - Dodgers - FREE AGENT
Mark Eichhorn - Blue Jays - FREE AGENT
Tim Teufel - Mets - FREE AGENT
Dave Stewart - Athletics - Akgonzolyn (Wahoo!!)
Claudell Washington - Yankees - dayf (Wahoo!!)
Von Hayes - Phillies - FREE AGENT
Les Straker - Twins - FREE AGENT
Dave Leiper - Padres - FREE AGENT
Luis Polonia - Athletics - Bo Rosny (Wahoo!!)
Scott Terry - Cardinals - FREE AGENT

We ended up with 1/3 of the items in the pack going out to managers. Not great, but that means a whole new slew of folks ready for the pickin's in the next free agent draft, right?

Our second pack today is 2013 Gypsy Queen. 6 cards per pack.

Frank Robinson - Reds - Andr340 (Wahoo!!)
Matt Cain No Hitters - Giants - Adam Smith (Wahoo!!)
Jayson Werth Glove Stories - Nationals - Brauer144 (Wahoo!!)
Jayson Werth Mini - Nationals - Brauer144 (Wahoo!!)
Mike Leake - Reds - FREE AGENT
Aroldis Chapman - Reds - Fan Of Reds (Wahoo!!)

Well, jumpin' Jehoshaphat  Three Reds and two Nationals in a pack of six cards!? Granted, Brauer scored a double-play (or a back-to-back, if you prefer... Or perhaps even a Two-for-Tuesday)! Certainly a lucky break. We did manage to find one free agent in the pack, but seeing as how the other cards panned out, it seems like a small consolation.


  1. I'm the King Of All Puzzles! Wahoo!

    1. Haha, sure looks that way. Was that planned (meaning you picked players you knew were puzzles)?
