Tribecards from Outer Space: Father-Daughter Bonding

Tonight, my daughter is reaching in to the big ol' box o' cards. She wants to help her old man out.  So, let's see what she pulls for you folks!

First up: 2010 Topps Update Series. 5 cards per pack.

Matt Capps - Twins - FanOfReds (Wahoo!!)
Felipe Lopez - Cardinals - Free Agent
Carl Crawford - Rays - FanOfReds (Wahoo!!)
Jose Valverde - Tigers - Bp_Weber5 (Wahoo!!)
Nick Swisher Home Run Derby - Yankees - IrishTribeFan (Wahoo!!)

Wow! Congrats to FanOfReds for getting two out of the five cards! Also congrats to the other managers.

My daughter reaches in, "from the bottom of the box" pulls Phil Rizzuto's National Pastime.

Briggs Stadium
Forbes Field
Species Promo Card
Tobin Lithographers
Police Gazette Poster
Uncut Sheet Detail

My daughter instantly recognized Forbes Field from our trip to Pittsburgh last year. At the miniature train display, Forbes Field is populated with multi-colored "people" made from painted cut-off cotton swab ends. I am very impressed by her memory of that!!

And, since this is "Three for Thursday," let's pop open a pack of 1987 Topps 3-pack cello rack pack. Emily thought it was cool that there were "like three packs" in here.  48 cards plus one "special."
