#PackADailyCircus - 039, 040 - The Comeback Edition

Hey there, folks! I had some things that needed to be taken care of yesterday, so I did not post a pack break. Today, I'm posting two packs to catch us up again!

We're going to start with 1989 Bowman "Comeback Edition" cards. Back then, this was a big deal. Topps had brought back one of the "original" baseball card brands and in the larger format. I was two years beyond high school at the time, and I can remember how excited I was. Let's get rippin!

Cory Snyder - Indians (Wahoo!) - Enamel Rods (Wahoo!!)
Pete Incaviglia - Rangers - Free Agent
Todd Stottlemyre - Blue Jays - Free Agent
Jesse Barfield - Blue Jays - Free Agent
John Kruk - Padres - Free Agent
Mickey Hatcher - Dodgers - Free Agent
Mickey Mantle Sweepstakes Entry Card - Yankees - Eastern Virginia Mutts (Wahoo!!)
Gary Redus* - Pirates - Ventura County Royals (Wahoo!!)
Frank Viola - Twins - Free Agent
Kevin Wickander - Indians (Wahoo!) - Free Agent
Cal Ripken Sr - Orioles - Free Agent
Pat Tabler - Royals - Free Agent
Jesse Orosco - Indians (Wahoo!) - Free Agent

Wow! Three Indians cards in one pack! Man, I should have been playing Tribe-or-no-Tribe. Congratulations to you managers that got a player here. We're adding more and more folks to the free agent pool, which is okay by me.

*The Redus card had 1989 gum that had been stuck to it. The back is pretty rough from where the gum had been stuck and subsequently fallen off.

The next pack is one of the 1991 Upper Deck sent to us:

Wally Joyner - Angels - Alecs All-Stars (Wahoo!!)
Dave Martinez - Expos - Free Agent
Mike Scioscia - Dodgers - Free Agent
Tim Naehring - Red Sox - Free Agent
Harold Reynolds Checklist - Mariners - Jacksonville Jobu (Wahoo!!)
Greg Blosser - Red Sox - Free Agent
Greg Blosser - Red Sox - Free Agent (Yes, back-to-back)*
Duane Ward - Blue Jays - Free Agent
Willie Randolph - A's - GCRLs (Wahoo!!)
Joe Boever - Phillies - Free Agent
Mel Rojas - Expos - Free Agent
Lee Smith - Cardinals - Free Agent
Juan Gonzalez - Rangers - Free Agent
John Wetteland - Dodgers - Free Agent
Montreal Expos Team Logo Sticker - Expos - Free Agent

*Remember, these 1991 UD packs were opened and repacked from Nachos Grande. Do not expect off-the-shelf numbers or collation. Do, however, expect cardboard fun!


  1. David, All the packs i sent your way were sealed (to the best of my knowledge) - other than the custom mini packs of course. If any of the packs were opened and resealed it occurred sometime before I gained custody of the packs!

  2. Whoa! Well *ALL* the packs are opened and presumably searched. That is too weird!
