Hey, everyone! I hope you are enjoying your Saturday! My daughter had a belated birthday sleepover with six of her friends, so I spent most of the night in my home office. From the sounds of things, they had a great time.
This morning, I updated the Managers/Players list - FINALLY! We had a lot of players not in the OOTP system, so I had to create them (especially team cards, mascots, etc). I can't imagine what Allen & Ginter is going to do to our game! Haha!
Here is the updated list:
I need to go through the "Trading Block" page and see what updates should be made there.
I had planned to send out the first half of the season's cards by now, but that hasn't happened. And, yes, I still have cards from LAST season's break to send out as well. I may have to take a day off from work to get those done.
Oh, i will be sending out this week's draft later tonight as well - WOW, another HUGE pile!
Well, since the list is updated and it is Saturday, I say we bust a Fat Pack!
This is a piece of copy paper with "1985 Fleer Fat Pack" written on it. It was sent to us from one of our managers, and I apologize for not remembering who sent it! UGH!

For the record, these were revealed in the order they appeared in the "Fat Pack." They were organized by team, which I though was a cool way to do that! Can you believe we had Gwynn and Jackson in there!? That is freaking awesome!! This was a great trip back in time for me. Thanks again to the manager that sent it to us to open. Congratulations to all the managers who got hits, especially those pulling multiple hits from here. The free agents *WILL* appear in this week's draft! Get you copy/paste fingers ready, folks.
