Good morning, folks! Well, it is early in the morning where I am anyway. I thought it would be fun to bring back the "3-for-Thursday" pack bust I did off-and-on last season. I have so many packs this season, we should have no problem doing that each week this season!
Let's rip some wax (and, as mentioned in the last post, these will all be 2016 Gypsy Queen):
Carlos Martinez - Cardinals - Wilson (Wahoo!!)
Justin Verlander - Tigers - Ryan G (Wahoo!!)
Mike Trout - Angels - AngelsInOrder (Wahoo!!)
Tony Perez Mini Foil SP - Reds - Nachos Grande (Wahoo!!)
Mike Minor - Braves - Jafronius (Wahoo!!)
Jose Peraza - Reds - Nachos Grande (Wahoo!! x2)
That's the first Tigers card and the first Angels card we've pulled this season! Congrats to you two! That freaking Perez mini is VERY cool! And, Nachos Grande snags a 2-fer here for the trouble. Awesome stuff!
Here is our second pack:
Francisco Lindor - Indians - Davidinark (Wahoo!!)
Tom Murphy - Rockies - InfieldFlyRule (Wahoo!!)
Yasiel Puig - Dodgers - Night Owl (Wahoo!!)
CC Sabathia Mini - Yankees - BoRosny (Wahoo!!)
Nolan Arenado Glove Stories - Rockies - InfieldFlyRule (Wahoo!! x2)
Ken Giles - Astros - Raz (Wahoo!!)
Hey! My first Indians card! Wahoo!! That Giles card shows Giles in Astros uni and says Astros on the front, but has him with the Phillies on the back. Interesting. Meanwhile, Infield Fly Rule snags a couple Rockies here! We are 2-for-2 in x2 packs. Can we make it another? Let's find out!
Pack number three:
Henry Owens - Red Sox - T&S (Wahoo!!)
Matt Kemp - Padres - Marcus (Wahoo!!)
Anibal Sanchez - Tigers - Ryan G (Wahoo!!)
Willie McCovey Mini Mint Border SP - Giants - Arpsmith (Wahoo!!)
JT Realmuto - Marlins - FREE AGENT
Brandon Drury - Diamondbacks - Alec (Wahoo!!)
Well, we did not get another 2-fer here, but we sure pulled some cool cards. I called the McCovey "mint" because I don't know what color Topps says it is and I'm too lazy to look it up. Haha! Congrats to everyone getting cards here.
Believe it or not, we still have several managers that have yet to pull any cardboard. We've not seen Cubs, Rays, Expos, or Blue Jays yet. We will, though! The season is still young.
