Wow, there are several free agents in there that I would swear are already picked up.  If you can lay claim to any of those, please let me know. I checked the database and went back through old drafts, so everything seems to check out. I just find it weird that Willie Wilson hasn't come up before. Same for Bob Walk and Dave Smith. That aside, congrats to Padrographs for finally snagging a pack-busted card after a month of drought! And, he grabbed three to boot. Congrats to all the other managers, too! These packs have been a LOT of fun to bust open!


  1. Oh darn - shut out from such a fine pack. No, those are tears - really.

    1. More to come! There are four more packs of these!
