#PackADailyCircus - Rectal Cranium Disease

Good evening, folks. Well, it turns out I screwed up the draft. As i was putting names in order, I swapped CaptainCanucks and CaptainKirk42s. Lucky for me, Captain Canuck is a forgiving sort of fellow.

Now that we're all friends again, let's rip a couple packs of 2010 Series 2:

Mike Fontenot - Cubs - Jafronius (Wahoo!!) - [Nice play at second shot here!]

Clay Buchholz - Red Sox - BC's (Wahoo!!) - [I don't think we've seen much for the BC's this season. At least, not that pops into my head. Glad you got one here!]

Ryan Howard - Phillies - Dawgbones (Wahoo!!) - [The way the bat and the line between dirt and grass align, it looks like the card was cut and pasted along that angle. Weird effect.]

Jay Bruce - Reds - NachosGrandes (Wahoo!!) - [Um, what is going on in this card? At this angle, with the chalk lines where they are, it appears he is sliding back into first after overrunning the base. Okay, I checked out Great American and he is sliding home. The batter's box is basically directly in front of him and the plate is on the right side of the chalk line at his feet. You basically have to turn the card to get the angle. Yeah, I put too much thought into this one.]

Lou Gehrig Vintage Legends - Yankees - GoBlues (Wahoo!!) - [That is one VERY yellow card. In fact, soccer referees are probably using that one in-game.]

Chase Utley History of the World Series - Phillies - Dawgbones (Wahoo!! x2) - [This actually looks like something Upper Deck would have released.]

Eddie Mathews Turkey Red - Braves - Dayfs (Wahoo!!) - I'm assuming there is significance to his holding 7 bats.]

Matt Kemp Topps Attax - Dodgers - Night Owls (Wahoo!!) - [Huh. I just realized Topps Attax and ToppsTown were connected. Well, that only took 4 years.]

Jordan Zimmerman - Nationals - CaptainKirk42s (Wahoo!!) - [When I was very young, I crush on our babysitter. Her last name was Zimmerman. I have no idea what her first name was. No, wait, that was my 2nd grade teacher's name. I dunno, man, I must have sniffed too many ditto copies as a kid.]

Here is our 2nd pack:

Blake DeWitt - Dodgers - DiamondKings (Wahoo!!) - [Wow, congrats, DKs! I know we haven't see your name come up often. The perks (or pitfalls), I suppose, of being highly selective.]

Dan Uggla - Marlins - Quarrys (Wahoo!!) - [There's a lot of aqua blue on that card.]

Chase Headley - Padres - BackstopCards (Wahoo!!) - [Is it hard for players to play for many years in one place (7.5 seasons or so with the Padres) and then get moved to another team (Yankees)?]

Roy Oswalt - Astros - Workmans (Wahoo!!) - [Judging by his face, that's a pretty hard pitch.]

Harmon Killebrew/Justin Morneau Legendary Lineage - Twins - EG9460s (Wahoo!!)/gcrls (Wahoo!!) - [Cool card, though as in the earlier pack, this looks like a UD rip-off.]

Andrew McCutchen Lenticular - Pirates - BCs (Wahoo!!) - [What a GREAT card! Man, this is cool. McCutchen has been instrumental in getting the Bucs out of their 21-year slump last year and then getting them as far as they've come this season.]

Lance Berkman Topps Attax - Astros - RJBreezes (Wahoo!!) - [Do you see Berkman in the HOF some day? I absolutely do.]

Yadier Molina - Cardinals - Erins (Wahoo!!) - [Way to pull a Yadie! I like the photo on here - chasing after a pop-up!]


  1. I'd be perfectly ok with it if you wanted to take a mulligan on this week's draft...
