Sweet Redemption

So in order to redeem myself, I went out and got a blaster of 2007 Topps Updates and Highlights Baseball cards. I will break 2 packs.

Ok, here we go....

Pack Numbero Uno:

#196 Brian Wolfe RC (Yawn)
#202 Danny Putnam RC

(Danny has "troubled youth" written all over him)

#29 Carlos Silva
#166 Felix Pie RC

(I'm working under the suspicion that this is really Alphy Soriano)

#237 Justin Verlander
#283 Classic Combo Carl Crawford/Victor Martinez

(Hi-Fiving as if they're celebrating something very very special)

Wow, that pack was so thrilling I just gotta open another one...I just gotta!!

Pack Numero Dos:

#98 Greg Dobbs
#80 Reggie Sanders
#44 Scott Spiezio

Generation Now #140 Ian Kinsler celebrates 16 Two-Baggers!!! YESSS!!!!

#247 An extremely confused looking Hideki Okajima
#291 Home Run Derby Magglio Ordonez

(Oh that hair...that hair..I loves that hair)

And, I think we have some sweet mojo here....


Bonus pack tres (I can't stop now....I must continue)

#84 Kyle Farnsworth

(Yes, its the cool cat from Happy Days...the Farns!)

#209 Troy Tulowitzki "performs" an unassisted triple play.

(Performs??? Don't ask me, I do not know)

#208 Mark Buehrle No-Hitter
Mickey Mantle Insert Card

(I believe this is from the "Mickey Wastes His God-Given Talent" series)

#220 Vlad Guerrero's All-Star Card
#290 Ryan Howard Home Run Derby

(lid is on backwards and Howard is looking goooood)

Well, I think its safe to say that opening 3 stellar packs like these really reaffirmed my faith in the hobby and re-ignited my love of collecting baseball cards. And you have the NERVE to ask why I love hockey cards so much???

See you soon with some sweet retro hockey breaks....

Now that's the ticket... I'm happy that I'm not the only one who noticed that Danny Putnam looks a little like a juvenile delinquent in that picture.
