Tribecards from Outer Space: Cards from the Hot Corner!

BP_Weber ( surprised me today! Sitting on our deck (thankfully it hadn't started raining) was a box and in that box was the box you see above! It is LOADED with cards and packs! Pat writes, "I would like to contribute to pack a day!" And, boy howdy did he! There are all kinds of unopened packs to be busted and the loose cards are going to be fun handing out to managers, too. This was a very cool surprise, especially since I am away form the house for a couple days for training this week and I will be away for all of next week. So, I plan to do some "Tribecards from the Road" busts to finish out the regular season. Perfect timing!

Sidenote: I did not get the cards from yesterday scanned before I left, so you'll just have to enjoy those when you see them in your respective packages. And, there is a nice stack of cool Indians cards (I will post about in a separate later post) that I was told are just for me! Wahoo!! 

Since we've got some packs to bust, I say we start right now!

2013 Topps Archives Promotion Week 2. I have no idea how many cards per pack.

Carlos Carrasco - Indians (Wahoo!) - Davidinark (Wahoo!!) - AWESOME way to start off!! 
Vinnie Pestano - Indians (Wahoo!) - Free Agent (Back-to-Back Tribers!)
Tommy Hanson - Angels - Dan Houck (Wahoo!!)
Seth Smith - A's - Workman (Wahoo!!)
Trevor Plouffe Blue Sparkly card - Twins - Free Agent (WOW! What a great-looking card!)

How about a pack of 1988 Mini Super Glossy Baseball Leaders! 7 cards per pack.

Mike Dunne - Pirates - Dawgbones (Wahoo!!)
Rickey Henderson - Yankees - Patrick Smith (Wahoo!!)
Howard Johnson - Mets - Paul Hadsall (Wahoo!!)
"Spring Fever" entry card. I already played that game with Topps. No sense of humor there.
Dwight Evans - Red Sox - Ajpca (Wahoo!!)
Willie Wilson - Royals - Free Agent - That's a couple for him this week!
Kirby Puckett - Twins - BConrad (Wahoo!!)
Gary Redus - White Sox - BP_Weber (Wahoo!!) - Sweet!! Always great when the giver is also a receiver!

How about a great big THANK YOU to BP_Weber for sharing cards and packs with the rest of the managers!!  Thank you so much for your gift. I am so thankful and deeply appreciate all the donations to the season break! What a fun way to keep our favorite hobby, er one of our favorite hobbies, alive and kicking!!

PS - I have no idea how HotCornerCards missed being in the Clubhouse. It has been added! My apologies!!

  1. Pretty sweet gift from BP_Weber. I love the generosity of the blogosphere, yourself included!

    I'm not sure if you were planning on going another round with the "Tribecards from Outer Space" next season, because I'm sure it's a major undertaking, but have you considered a buy-in? Each manager could send you a handful of packs to participate. Just think of the variety that you'd possibly receive!
