Tribecards from Outer Space: Two-for-Tuesday

I purposely posted the fact that only one player had not been drafted as of the last draft.  I also purposely did NOT reveal which player that was. So, let's have a quick little 'instant-win' contest. The first person to respond to this post with the correct answer will win an assortment of cards. ANYONE can win this! You do not have to be a manager!

So, be the first to answer correctly: Who was the only player still listed as a Free Agent as they appeared in the 6/15/2013 draft? (Note: Players opened after the draft started were not in that draft!)

So, what cards does the winner get?

  • 2013 Gypsy Queen Nolan Ryan No Hitters
  • 2013 Topps George Brett shiny Chasing History (.400 batting avg)
  • 1983 Fleer stickers: A's Logo, Rickey Henderson Stolen Base, Rickey Henderson regular
  • 2013 Topps Ian Kennedy mini 70's
  • 2013 Topps Blue Border Daniel Nava
  • 2013 Gypsy Queen Travis Snider Glove Stories
  • *NOTE: None of the cards above were taken from packs to be used in the season break!
Now, let's open a couple packs! 1995 Phil Rizzuto National Pastime is up first. 7 cards per pack.

Cincinnati American Association
Stadium Scene
Bobby Wallace - Free Agent
South Side Park
Chicago & All-American

Hey, we get to add a player to the mix! How cool!  Some of these are also duplicates, so a couple of you will get the same card when these are handed out at the end of the season.

The second pack tonight is 2013 Gypsy Queen. 6 cards per pack.

Trevor Bauer - Indians (Wahoo!) - IrishTribeFan (Wahoo!!)
Alex Cobb - Rays - Free Agent
Alexi Ramirez Mini - Free Agent
Catfish Hunter - A's - Wicked4Life (Wahoo!!)
George Brett - Royals - Josh Denhartog (Wahoo!!)
Michael Fiers - Brewers - Free Agent

Congrats to the three managers who pulled players form the pack! The good news for the rest of us: more free agents into the pool!

    1. I thought it was Wang as well.

      Well, if it helps anyone, it can't be an Indian, because our great host would have picked them up in the draft!

      That only leaves 29 other teams to guess players from!

    1. You got it, Chris!! JEFF NEIMANN was the only player left. Congratulations! The follow-up question: Did you find the answer glaring at you from a link on this site or did you do the actual legwork? Haha!
