Tribecards from Outer Space: Friday Night Pack-n-Draft

The pickin's are getting slim in the ol' box of packs. That's okay, I found a 50-pack deal for $10 so I've plenty of random wax to come. I decided tonight I would open two packs: one older pack and one newer pack.

First, let's look at 1991 Fleer Ultra. 14 cards and 1 sticker per pack.

Robby Thompson - Giants - Adam Smith (Wahoo!!)
Chuck Knoblauch Ultra Prospects - Twins - Matthew Wilson (Wahoo!!)
Leo Gomez - Orioles - Backstop Cards (Wahoo!!)
Tony Gwynn - Padres - Backstop Cards (Wahoo!!)
Randy Johnson - Mariners - GoBlue2112 (Wahoo!!)
Will Clark - Giants - Play at the Plate (Wahoo!!)
Darryl Strawberry - Dodgers - Community Gum (Wahoo!!)
Steve Decker - Giants - Dominicfdny (Wahoo!!)
Bryan Harvey - Angels - Free Agent
Terry Pendleton - Braves - Captain Canuck (Wahoo!!)
Jimmy Key - Blue Jays - Akgonzolyn (Wahoo!!)
Andy Hawkins - Yankees - Free Agent
Bryn Smith - Cardinals - gcrl (Wahoo!!)
Chuck Crim - Brewers - Free Agent

Back-to-Back wax for Backstop Cards! Matthew scored a Knobluach prospect card, too. Nice! Heck, there are several good player pulls in this pack. Nice way to end the week!  The draft info is after the pics!

This week's draft features players that we have not uncovered yet! That's right, I dug into my person stash and added players that haven't come up in packs so far. I'm not going to tell you which players nor am I going to tell you on which cards they appear. You have to check the list! The cards will be put into winning managers' stacks for discovery once the cards are delivered to your door after the regular season!

Some of this week's notables:
  • There are nearly 60 free agents this week.
  • There are more than 1700 individual players listed in the system now.
  • We have a bunch of 2013 Allen & Ginter's player cards!
  • Ian Kennedy Mini 2013 A&G
  • Nick Punto - He sticks out to me for some reason. I don't follow the Twins. I dunno.
  • Ben Broussard - Indians, man!
  • Jake Westbrook - Seems weird that he is a free agent.
  • J.J. Putz - The last name alone.
  • Al Pedrique - Because it features Tony Gwynn as part of the play!
  • Scott Coolbaugh - See Putz above.
  • Ramon Martinez - How is this guy a free agent on here? Wow.
  • Matt LaPorta - Another Indians player in the mix!

The draft is alive and kicking right here:

  1. Can't remember what card I saw that made me think "I should pick Leo Gomez", totally forgot that I drafted him at some point. Very cool looking Gwynn. Of my 300+ Gwynn's, that's one I don't have.

    Oh, and thanks for the recap of the notable cards in the draft, I'm always forgetting which ones I saw that I wanted to pick up.
