144 J. R. Towles RC Rookie Stars - Yes, it's the pigment-challenged Astros catcher of the future.
66 B. J. Ryan
277 Mark Teahen - So interrupts the box-opening run of initials.
256 Rich Aurilia
379 Franklin Morales - My first pink-bordered card of the set. It's adorable.
210 J. J. Putz - Back to the initials.
TN3 Orlando Cepeda and Magglio Ordonez Then & Now - The Baby Bull and Maggs make for one nifty card.
175 Jeff Weaver black number - I think it would've been funny if they'd Photoshopped out the Mariners uniform and listed his team as "Pending". But then, I'm a weirdo.
136 Nyjer Morgan RC Rookie Stars - It would be nice if his career took off in the next couple of years, since I pulled his autograph in my 2008 Topps box last month.
222 Cesar Izturis
274 Ubaldo Jimenez - Ubaldo is Dominican for "Steve". Also, that's not at all true.
402 Dustin McGowan
270 Prince Fielder - Not pictured: The giant Cecil-sized chip on his shoulder.
24 Felix Hernandez - Bleh, my first double. I already pulled F-Her from a few loose packs I picked up at my hobby store.
447 Felipe Lopez SP - One short print down, 74 to go. Oy vey.
52 Omar Vizquel black number - I didn't realize he was a career .274 hitter. That's mildly impressive.
167 Juan Pierre - Soon to be baseball's most expensive fourth outfielder.
103 Bengie Molina - More like Slow-lina. Ouch.
223 Cardinals Team Card
125 Harvey Garcia RC Rookie Stars - Go figure, a rookie on the Marlins.
416 Asdrubal Cabrera
348 Joba Chamberlain - Watch out for those bugs, Joba!
3 Eric Byrnes - I'm of the opinion that he should be seen and not heard.
16 Ichiro black number - He stole 41 straight bases last year without being caught. Wow!
235 Roy Oswalt - His career record is 112-54, which my powers of deduction tell me is very good.
156 Brandon Webb and Jake Peavy: Ace Hurlers - They look like they're hugging. Aww.
64 Francisco Rodriguez
397 Nationals Team Card
314 Mark Kotsay - Always have to appreciate someone whose name sounds like Pig Latin.
34 Magglio Ordonez and Curtis Granderson: Pitchers Beware
C20 Justin Verlander Chrome 1283/1959 - It's hard to get the full shiny effect of the Chrome cards, since I've only pulled black bordered ones.
335 Brandon Phillips black number - He's from Stone Mountain, GA, just like wrestling great Jake "the Snake" Roberts.
