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

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.
