Tribecards from Colorado Springs: Ticket to Ride

Hey everyone! I have closed the 9th Free Agent draft, but I will not run the draft until I get back home from vacation.  We spent the day today riding the Cog to the summit of Pike's Peak and then toured the Garden of the Gods.

In the meantime, I bought a bunch of packs to keep us going through this week and beyond!

Here is a pack of 2010 Topps Ticket to Stardom. 8 cards per pack.

Jorge Cantu - Marlins - Free Agent
Cameron Maybin - Marlins - Free Agent
Josh Willingham - Nationals - Free Agent
Lance Berkman rippled edge - Astros - Samuel Pair (Wahoo!!)
Edinson Volquez - Reds - Free Agent
Ryan Freel - Royals - Free Agent
Justin Verlander - Tigers - Don Sherman (Wahoo!!)
Nick Markakis - Orioles - Free Agent

Congrats to the TWO managers who scored players out of this pack. I don't anything about these, so is the Berkman and insert/parallel or are some players just blessed with the "deckle edge."

  1. The Berkman is a parallel. The idea is that they are supposed to be like a perforated ticket, except they don't really resemble that at all. Instead, it's just kind of annoying. These one-off sets that never panned out are kind of interesting from a historical perspective, though.
