Tribecards from Outer Space: Three-4-Thursday

Hey everyone! There is a lot of thunder, lightning and rain going on around my house. And, to top that off, we have a house full of pre-teen girls for my daughter's slumber party. That is why I am in the Man Cave writing this!

Let's get to work on our Three-For-Thursday!

First up: 2012 Topps Series 2. 8 cards per pack.

Alex Rodriguez - Yankees - Matthew Wilson (Wahoo!!)
Andrew McCutchen - Pirates - BConrad (Wahoo!!)
Ryan Sweeney - Red Sox - Free Agent
Ken Griffey Jr Cut Above Die Cut - Mariners - Patrick Smith (Wahoo!!)
Josh Beckett Mini 82 - Red Sox - CattleRustler (Wahoo!!)
Cliff Lee - Phillies - Dawgbones (Wahoo!!)
Kerry Wood - Cubs - P-Town Tom (Wahoo!!)
Jason Kubel - DBacks - Free Agent

Wow, those inserts are sweet! The die cut is especially cool. Reminds me of the good ol' Pacific days!  The mini '82 is a nice throwback. Congrats folks!

Next up: 1993 Pinnacle Series 1. 15 cards per pack.

Tim Teufel - Padres - Paul Hadsall (Wahoo!!)
John Orton - Angels - Free Agent
Pat Borders - Blue Jays - GoBlue2112 (Wahoo!!)

Mike Bordick - A's - Free Agent
Tony Gwynn Now and Then - Padres - Backstop Cards (Wahoo!!)
Dave Mlicki - Indians (Wahoo!) - Free Agent
Hal Morris - Reds - Free Agent
Shawn Jeter - White Sox - Free Agent

That Tony Gwynn card is fun! Shows him 10 years apart in age. I can't believe how man Indians were in this pack. This would have been a great Tribe-or-no-Tribe pack! Ah well.  Several free agents to add to the draft for the week. Congrats to Workman for getting a two-bagger in this pack and to everyone that scored cards in this round!

Our last pack tonight is 2012 Panini Triple Play. 7 items per pack.

Dustin Ackley - Seattle - Prowlingcat (Wahoo!!)
Brian Matusz - Baltimore - Free Agent
David Wright - Mets - Paul Hadsall (Wahoo!!)
Baseball 101 - Home Run
Sticker #5 Pitcher on mound, ball flying under leg
Andrew McCutchen 4 of 9 Puzzle - Pittsburgh - BConrad (Wahoo!!)
Ichiro 8 of 9 Puzzle - Seattle - Jafronius (Wahoo!!)

That pitcher on the mound sticker is weird bit of collectible, eh. Congrats to the managers pulling players from this pack. We've added a player to the draft and have a couple items to add to the random distribution at the end of the season.


  1. I'm starting to think my stack only grows after drafts. :(

    1. On the upside, though, you have some nice cards in your giveaway stack. Quality over quantity? Hopefully, the 2nd half of the season will net you more than you've been getting!

  2. Thats actually a 1987 mini, not 1982

    1. Bahaha, D'oh! Sorry! Brain melt there. Must have been due to the screaming 11 yr olds running amok!

  3. WooHoo! Add another Kerry Wood to the stack! By the looks of his card he seems petty excited about it, too!

    1. I believe you're right. He seems pretty stoked to part of the P-Town Tom Collection!
