Wahoo! This week's almost over! In case you missed it, fearless leader met one of the managers today, so go check it out! If you didn't miss it, go click on it again and boost the blog numbers. Today is WEIRDO day on Pack A Daily Circus. Because after a week or ripping and working I'm feeling a bit squirrelly. We've got three oddball packs from 1995-2002 that didn't fit in with the other posts. It's the Island of Misfit Packs! First up, some SUPER HIGH END PREMIUM PRODUCT - 1995 Select Certified!
Mike Mussina - Orioles - Ventura County Royals (Wahoo!!)
Orlando Miller Rookie - Astros - Free Agent
Darren Daulton - Phillies - Eastern Virginia Mutts (Wahoo!!)
Barry Larkin - Reds - Nachos Grandes (Wahoo!!)
Jon Nunnally Rookie - Royals - Free Agent
Kirk Gibson - Tigers - Pedersejs (Wahoo!!)
Mike Piazza Checklist - Dodgers - Illinois Jafronius (Wahoo!!)
Blogger is celebrating Weirdo day by rotating the wrapper even though it's right side up on my hard drive. The wrapper is actually really nice, it's a little cardboard box with a slidey part that protects a clear plastic wrapper holding 6 foily-shiny premium cards + 1 checklist. Managers nabbed some pretty good cards out of this one although the rookies are still up for grabs!
Next up a really weird one... 2001 Royal Rookies
Mark Roberts Futures - White Sox - Free Agent
Bert Snow Boys of Summer - A's - Free Agent
Todd Helton Amazing - Rockies - Kentucky Quarrys (Wahoo!!)
Alex Rodriguez Wall Street - Mariners - Bo Rosnys (Wahoo!!)
Travis Dawkins Blue Chips Promo - Reds
Woohoo! The two best players got snagged by managers! I know almost nothing about this set other than:
1) Every card looks completely different
2) Most cards are minor leaguers no one's heard of
3) These ugly silver packs were all over repack boxes about 10 years ago
4) You could pull an AUTOGRAPH (lolnope)
5) You can very easily find these autographs in junk boxes now
6) They put promo cards in wax packs??
Yeah this set is weird.
That pack may have been too weird. Let's have a perfectly normal pack full of well-designed good looking cards. That happen to be En Espanol.
Manny Ramirez Poster - Red Sox - Jacksonville Jobu (Wahoo!!)
Jason Kendall - Pirates - Free Agent
Charles Johnson - Marlins - Free Agent
Barry Zito - A's - Illinois Jafronius (Wahoo!!)
Nomar Garciaparra - Red Sox - Thoughts and Sox (Wahoo!!)
Rodrigo Rosario Novato - Astros - Free Agent
Manny Ramirez Nacion de Origen - Red Sox - Jacksonville Jobu (Wahoo!!)
Man-Ram Caliente Paquete! Jobu comes through with a poster and an insert! This really is a great looking set and if you ever find a set or some packs I highly recommend picking it up. There's three cards here you can pick up if you choose.
One more day for me! Since tomorrow's a holiday and I am working AND going to a ballgame I'm not exectly sure when the Grand Finale will be posted but I'll post it eventually!
