#PackADailyCircus - Cards from ShaneDiaz and it's time for a couple packs

Good evening, folks! I did not get to bust a pack last night because we were off to watch my daughter cheer for the JV football squad: 2 hours away from home!

Before I bust open packs tonight, I received a PWE from Shane Diaz. They come as a "thank you" because I had sent him a JJ Walker sticker from a pack of "Good Times" cards I had opened over at "A Pack to be Named Later."  He sent some very cool Tribers!

I'm not sure I've seen the Leaf Second Edition cards before. The Victory looks way better in person! Getting a "Member's Choice" is always a plus, and when it features someone like Baerga, well, that is pure cardboard magic right there! Speaking of Baeggy, how about that Puckett "Profiles" card! I am quite certain I have not seen that before. Thanks for ALL the cards, Shane! Very cool!

Let's rip some wax. I have two packs of 2010 Topps Series 2:

Dan Runzler - Giants - Free Agent - [Sorry to say I have never heard of him.]

Mike McCoy - Blue Jays - Free Agent - [Wow. Let's see if we go hitless...]

Andy Marte - Indians (Wahoo!) - Free Agent - [Snagged a Triber! Always great in my book.]

Joel Pineiro - Angels - Maddings (Wahoo!!) - [Whew! Nice job grabbing the card and for breaking our hitless streak!]

Joe Morgan 1980 Topps Cards Mom Threw Out - Reds - NachosGrandes (Wahoo!!) - [I owned the real version of that card once upon a time. Not sure if I still have it or not. I need to check my "Non-Tribers" collection.]

Tom Seaver Vintage Legends - Mets - MySportsObsessions (Wahoo!!) - [Sweet! I don't what kind of card it is: Seaver is always a fun pull for me.]

Stephen Drew Topps Attax - Diamondbacks - NachosGrandes (Wahoo!! x2) - [Two hits! Great job!]

New York Mets Team Card - Mets - Free Agent - [The logo is spoken for, but not the team card. Should be a fun draft next time.]

(BTW, I checked my Non-Tribers, and sure enough, I have the original 1980 Joe Morgan. Nice!)

Here is our second pack:

Brandon Wood - Angels - Free Agent - [Starting off with another free agent. Hmm...]

Taylor Teagarden - Rangers - BackstopCards (Wahoo!!) - [He has one of the coolest last name - just because it is so unique.]

Andy LaRoche - Pirates - Free Agent - [The Canucks have Adam, but Andy is up for grabs.]

Brad Bergesen - Orioles - Free Agent - [For once, I am not surprised.]

J P Howell - Rays - Free Agent - [There have a lot of players that have just used their first two initials.]

Chad Billingsley Turkey Red - Dodgers - CaptainKirk42s (Wahoo!!) - [Very nice snag on this one! I like the TR inserts.]

Josh Johnson Topps Attax - Marlins - Dawgbones (Wahoo!!) - [Way to go, Dawgbones! did anyone ever play Attax?]

Austin Jackson - Tigers - PatWs (Wahoo!!) - [Am I the only one who thinks "Steve Austin" when I see this name? Probably.]

Congrats, each of you that added a card or two to your piles!


  1. I don't think of Steve Austin when I see the name Austin Jackson. I think of the "so bad it's good" Carl Weathers 80s movie Action Jackson. If you have never seen it, find a copy, you'll thank me later.

  2. It is awesome. I seem as think as you (If you have never seen it, find a copy, you'll thank me later)
