Hello, everyone! So, it seems that this is the season of "almost." That is, the "A" in PAD has come to mean "Almost" - Packs-Almost-Daily Circus. Ah, well. The biggest thing to remember is that we're having fun (or I am anyway - haha!) and we have LOTS of packs to bust open!
Before we get to that, I am doing something different this season. Roughly once per month, I will be mailing out the cards to the managers. This will do two things: 1) Gets cards in your hands quicker, 2) Makes the process of sorting manageable. So, managers, I will be reaching out over the weekend to get updated mailing addresses!
This post will cover the 30-card Gypsy Queen pack I got for my birthday*:
Evan Gattis - Astros - RAZ (Wahoo!!)
Clayton Kershaw - Dodgers - Night Owl (Wahoo!!)
Starling Marte Walk-Off Winners - Pirates - Brian C (Wahoo!!)
Tommy Pham - Cardinals - Wilson (Wahoo!!)
Nick Castellanos - Tigers - Ryan G (Wahoo!!)
Yu Darvish - Rangers - Play at the Plate (Wahoo!!)
Justin Bour - Marlins - Bo Rosny (Wahoo!!)
Steven Matz Mini - Mets - Buckstore Cards (Wahoo!!)
Jackie Robinson Walk-off Winners - Dodgers - Night Owl (Wahoo!! x2)
Odubel Herrera - Phillies - Dawgbones (Wahoo!!)
Gregory Polanco - Pirates - Brian C (Wahoo!! x2)
Hisashi Iwakuma - Mariners - Cool Breeze (Wahoo!!)
Joc Pederson - Dodgers - Night Owl (Wahoo!! x3)
Arodys Vizcaino - Braves - Jafronius (Wahoo!!)
Stephen Piscotty Mini - Cardinals - Wilson (Wahoo!! x2)
Carlos Delgado Power Alley - Blue Jays - Hockeykazi (Wahoo!!)
Carson Smith - Red Sox - T&S (Wahoo!!)
Congratulations to Night Owl for getting THREE cards and to Wilson who pulled TWO cards! I don't know if Matz is the face of Mets, but that is a promotional marriage made in advertising right there.
*Note: Since these were birthday cards/packs, I got first dibs on any player(s) I wanted to keep for my personal collection.
