#PackADailyCircus - 103 -105 - Pinch Hit Upper Deck Packs

All right. Rippin' packs. No fuss no frills. Solid. Just like Upper Deck. Here's 2007 SP Authentic.

Trevor Hoffman - Padres - Free Agent
Brandon Phillips Authentic Speed - Reds - Nachos Grandes (Wahoo!!)
Joe Nathan - Twins - Arpsmith (Wahoo!!)
Roy Halladay - Blue Jays - RJBreezes (Wahoo!!)
Chris Carpenter - Cardinals - Wilsons (Wahoo!!)

One card away from a perfect pack and Trevor Hoffman is the guy who's not claimed yet?? I need to have --David double check the manager list because I'm doubting myself now. Nachos walks away with the insert card! Also notice that while the base card design has some similarities with the Fleer Patchworks cards from yesterday, I'm not making fun of Upper Deck. That's because I'm biased Upper Deck is cool, man.

SP Authentic was on the high-end of UD products in 2007. Let's open one from the low-end. 2007 Future Stars.

Carlos Delgado - Mets - New Jersey Hadsalls (Wahoo!!)
Dontrelle Willis - Marlins - Northampton Therapists (Wahoo!!)
Jon Garland - White Sox - Free Agent
Emil Brown - Royals - Free Agent
Chris Duncan - Cardinals - Maddings (Wahoo!!)

I'll be perfectly honest and admit I don't like this set. The green and bronze design doesn't look right, it's impossible to pull future stars in a product called Future Stars and the FS logo looks like a bootleg Tron light cycle game. We did get 5 cards in a 4 card pack though, so that's nice.

One last pack from 2007: One of my most favoritest sets ever! 2007 Goudey!!!

Jim Thome - White Sox - Arkansas Tribecards (Wahoo!!)
JD Drew - Red Sox - Maddings (Wahoo!!)
Jusin Verlander - Tigers - Saitama Sushi (Wahoo!!)
David Eckstien - Cardinals - Free Agent
Carlos Zambrano - Cubs - Thorzul (Wahoo!!)
Grady Sizemore - Indians (Wahoo!) - Jacksonville Jobu (Wahoo!!)
Ray Durham - Giants - Free Agent
Michael Cuddyer - Twins - Free Agent

Wahoo!!! Tribecards finally got a card! And it's a White Sox player! I'm happy though because I got to rip a pack of weirdo mini sized cards with art deco backgrounds ganked from the 1934-36 Diamond Stars set! No perfect packs, but that just means more players for the draft.

Tomorrow: Pack a Day Circus goes a little weird.

  1. WAHOO!! Got a Thome! Okay, I am almost certain that Cuddyer belongs to someone via draft. I checked the OOTP posted online and it shows that PatP has him on his team. I wish I would have checked that before meeting Brian today. I have search through everything I have online and come up empty (usually meaning that the player was randomly assigned by the game). I don't recall Hoffman coming up, though. I will double check free agents against my Excel sheets when I get back home after vacation.
