Last night I found myself at a Target roughly 30 minutes outside of my metropolitan area, so I decided to check out their card selection. What I found was a box full of loose packs from a few years ago at a discounted price. Perfect for the blog, I put a few into my basket. Here is one of the results.
Let's tear in.
Top to Bottom:
59 C.C. Sabathia
41 Greg Maddux
CS-28 Lou Brock Century Stars (#0229/1500)
132 Chien-Ming Wang
3 David Eckstein
Thoughts: This set is boring. It sucks. No wonder Donruss had its license snitched away less than two years later. If I was the head of a youth sports program, and the photographer who took player pictures presented me with a faux-sports card photo option (like an add-on to a traditional 8x10, 5x7, 20 wallets package) that looked like this set design, I would have punched him in the face.
The Brock card is cool, but other than that I am unimpressed.
