We had quite a few hits in this triple-pack! We also had some very cool players and cards - from single-season debuts to Hall of Famers. This is one of the reason I love busting older wax. We can reflect on who went all the way to Cooperstown and who have we never even known. I suppose that is the sppeal of collecting these bits of cardboard in the first place, isn't it?


  1. I can't believe Ramon Martinez is a free agent.
    Hope I pick him up in next draft.

  2. I can't believe you sneaked a Lionel Richie reference into the title of this post.

    1. Nice catch! I have music running through my head at all times. And, I am a huge fan of parody. It's a scary combination. I should probably seek help (I need somebody! HELP!) See?
