#PackADailyCircus - 124-132 - Busting Wide Open

Hello there, folks! I have LOTS of packs still left to open during the season, thanks to the generosity of readers who sent stuff for us to open!  Let's break open a bunch of packs. I don't even know how many it will be. I'll just start ripping and see where we stop. I will post this page after each pack, so it will keep updating as I rip packs. Why not, right? All scans will appear once all packs have been ripped.

In the meantime, lots of other folks were able to get cards as well. But, man did we add a bunch of cards to the free agent pile - though, some of those are actually in the current draft).

Is that the longest streak of single hits we've had!? We went 14 hits before the Sushi managed to pulled a second player. That is awesome! And, once that was done, we went on a tear of hits, with several folks getting doubles!
