21 11 2008

Disclaimer: Base cards may be depicted as Gold or Black bordered parallels. I just needed the image.

Pack 11

UH259 Aaron Boone
UH236 Chris Snelling


Snelling appears to be power walking to first base

UH86 David Aardsma


Hey, that’s the same fence from the Casey card.  They must have a pen where they hold traded Red Sox until they are ready to be released into the AL East.

Oh, and guess who is first in an alphabetical list of major leaguers?  That guy right there.  I checked.

UH202 Josh Hamilton Home Run Derby
UH118 Justin Morneau and David Ortiz Classic Combos
UH89 Joakim Soria All Star
UH59 Cliff Lee All Star


My fantasy team wants to know:  Where did the 2008 Cliff Lee come from, and will he please come back for 2009?

Someone in Toppstown loves you

Pack 12 takes the early lead in most boring pack ever, with the exception of John Rheinecker, who appears about to kill a bear with a baseball. Too bad I couldn’t find an image, though.
