Tribecards from the Dollar Tree

Hey everyone! welcome to a Saturday evening edition of TCFOS. Earlier tonight, I made a trip to the Dollar Tree with my wife. She bought things for her classroom, and I scanned the pickings they had in the way of cards, stickers, etc to see what I could find to post here. I found a few things...

2011 Topps Attax. 6 cards per pack.

Carlos Gonzalez - Rockies - Community Gum (Wahoo!!)
Kevin Youkilis Foil - Red Sox - Ajpca (Wahoo!!)
Roy Halladay - Phillies - Akgonzolyn (Wahoo!!)
Brandon Phillips - Reds - Fan of Reds (Wahoo!!)
Luke Scott - Orioles - Free Agent
Adam Lind - Blue Jays - Free Agent

Wow, I am surprised that we pulled free agents! Cool.  That Youkilis card is VERY bright when held in the light. Blindingly shiny! Congrats everyone!

Next up, I grabbed two packs of 2012 Panini Triple Play. 7 items per pack. I'll do each one separately.

Billy Butler - Royals - Josh Denhartog (Wahoo!!)
Carlos Beltran - Cardinals - Paul Hadsall (Wahoo!!)
Troy Tulowitzki - Rockies - E_Rose (Wahoo!!)
Lance Berkman Focus - Cardinals - Samuel Pair (Wahoo!!)
Ryan Zimmerman sticker - Nationals - Tim-Gretchen (Wahoo!!)
Buster Posey Puzzle 3 of 9 - Giants - Community Gum (Wahoo!!)
Albert Pujols Puzzle 9 of 9 - Angels - Matthew Wilson (Wahoo!!)

Hot dog! We hit for the cycle!! And, Community Gum is 2-for-2 so far. Nice score for each of the managers in this pack!

Carlos Quentin - Padres - Backstop Cards (Wahoo!!)
Miguel Montero - DBacks - Play at the Plate (Wahoo!!)
Rickie Weeks - Brewers - Thorzul (Wahoo!!)
Al Kaline Hall of Fame - BP_Weber (Wahoo!!)
Pitcher getting zinged (I think we have seen this one)
Andrew McCutchen puzzle 7 of 9 - Pirates - BConrad (Wahoo!!)
Evan Longoria puzzle 5 of 9 - Rays - Tim_Gretchen (Wahoo!!)

We hit for the cycle here, too (er, not counting the unnamed pitcher)! Way to go folks! I hope you enjoy these Triple Play cards in your collections!!

If you are interest in seeing what other packs I picked up at the Dollar Tree, head over to A Pack To Be Named Later over the next few days. I'll be posting packs that aren't already on the site!

  1. "Pitcher getting zinged"... Yep, I saw this recently with LaTroy Hawkins. I'm sure for him this card hits a little too close to home if you know what I mean!
