Tribecards from Outer Space: Two-for-What-Happened-to-Monday?

Hey folks! While I was installing software on a new computer for one of the staff members at work, a light bulb dinged over my head and I thought, "Did I forget to open a pack yesterday?" A check check confirmed it. I guess in my frantic frenzy to fulfill the Free Agent draft, I forgot.  Well, let's rectify that with a few packs of good ol' fashioned cardboard.
