Tribecards from Outer Space: No three ways about it

Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by to check out tonight's pack break. I believe I'll have some packs on my doorstep before Friday evening, so I am going to take a leap of faith and bust open a 3-for-Thursday. It just dawned on me that I could pop open my "Pinnacle Inside" can and grab the 10-card pack from it if push comes to shove...

First up, 2006 Topps Series 2. 12 cards per pack.

Jose Cruz Jr - Dodgers - Free Agent
Sam Perlozzo - Orioles - Free Agent
Miguel Cabrera - Marlins - Jafronius (Wahoo!!)
Mickey Rivers Team Topps Autograph - Yankees - Free Agent
Andy Sisco - Royals - Free Agent
Buddy Bell - Royals - Captain Canuck (Wahoo!!)
Craig Counsell - DBacks - Free Agent
Roy Oswalt - Astros - Dawgbones (Wahoo!!)
Doug Mirabelli - Padres - Free Agent
Scott Eyre - Cubs - Free Agent
Sidney Ponson - Cardinals - Matthew Wilson (Wahoo!!)
Sluggers Promo Card
Checklist 2 of 3
Pirates Team Card

Can we start by saying, "WOW!" I mean, "Wowie wow wow!" We finally pulled some mojo from these 2006 Topps packs! Mickey Rivers autograph. Sweet!  I searched to make sure he was a free agent, and everything I have shows that he is unclaimed. That is a HUGE win for the free agent stack. This pack did not play nicely with the managers. We have a lot of free agents to go into this week's draft.

The next pack we have tonight is 1989 Topps. 15 cards and some nasty gum per pack.

Matt Williams - Giants - Workman (Wahoo!!)
Andy Van Slyke - Pirates - Cardanathema (Wahoo!!)
Bob Welch - A's - Captain Canuck (Wahoo!!)
Storm Davis - A's - Free Agent
Bruce Fields - Mariners - Free Agent
Rich Gedman - Red Sox - Free Agent
Steve Buechele - Rangers - Play at the Plate (Wahoo!!)
Bill Pecota - Royals - Free Agent
Company Store T-Shirt Promo
Rick Aguilera - Mets - Dawgbones (Wahoo!!)
Chris Brown - Padres - Free Agent
Gil Hodges Turn Back the Clock - Mets - Free Agent
Brad Havens - Indians (Wahoo!) - Free Agent
Kevin Gross - Phillies - Free Agent
Rangers Leaders - Steve Buechele - Play at the Plate (Wahoo!!)
Louie Meadows - Astros - Free agent

Well, congrats to PatP for grabbing two cards from this pack! Wait. That is two nights in a row where PatP hit two cards with the same player from one pack. Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K!  Like the previous pack tonight, this one yielded more free agents than drafted players. Very interesting.

The last pack for tonight is a 1990 UD with an undisclosed number of cards per pack.

Mike Marshall - Dodgers - Free Agent
Doyle Alexander - Tigers - Akgonzolyn (Wahoo!!)
Fernando Valenzuela - Dodgers - Night Owl (Wahoo!!)
Oil Can Byrd - Red Sox - Free Agent
Guillermo Hernandez - Tigers - BP_Weber (Wahoo!!)

Hey, finally a pack with more hits than free agents tonight! Congrats to each of the managers for their takeaways this evening. It'll be a tough contest for the "Rookie Threats" card. Who will get it? We'll find out at the end of the regular season.


  1. If there is even one manager who does not select Rivers first, I will fall over.

  2. I will trade my two Buecheles for one Mickey. Ha! That's a sweet sig.

  3. he's -1 for Gint-a-Cufs for being a Yankmee!!

  4. My dad wanted to name me after Mickey Rivers but my mom wouldn't allow it.
