Halloween Special

For Halloween night, I found the scariest pack imaginable to open. The pack that sane men fear. The pack that causes collectors to wail in dismay and horror. The pack that has lured many a soul to its lair before GOBBLING up their money and KILLING their hopes and dreams. You know what I'm talking about... That most evil and nefarious of packs....


Find the Wagner my ass! YOU'LL FIND NOTHING BUT SORROW!!! So let's open it already!

1992 Upper Deck Pete Harnisch #635

Pete suffers from clinical depression that started when he quit chewing tobacco. See? I told you - this will all end in tears.

1992 Upper Deck Wally Backman #350

Phillies cards make Tampa Rays fans cry. Woe! Woe and despair!

1984 Topps Bill Almon #241 1984 Topps Bill Almon #241

AAAAAAH! Bill Almon has a doppelgänger! He's a Pod Person! Ruuuuuun!

1985 Topps Gary Carter #230

A world where Gary Carter is in the Hall of Fame and Dale Murphy isn't even allowed to enter the city limits of Cooperstown is a world that scares me. This must be the 1 per pack "Star" card. Meh. Even if he is an Expo and not a Met.

1986 Donruss Paul Molitor #124

Wait! A happy ending!An '86 Mollie card! JOOOOOY! Everything turned out all right in the end. And you were so worried.


A 1991 mini three card pack like what I opened up for Halloween last year! Hooray!

Willie Stargell Puzzle .52 .53 .54

Dick Perez' signature.

176 Brook Jacoby

The trade of Brook, Brett Butler and Rick Behenna for Len Barker was a bloodbath for the Braves.

41 Phil Plantier

For everyone who bought up piles of his rookie cards, this card is a nightmare.

91 Dickie Thon!

There is nothing but joy and candy and happiness and rainbows with Dickie Thon! SAY IT WITH ME! DICKIE THON!

Happy Halloween!

I actually replied "Dickie Thon" to the kids that failed to great me with a "trick or treat."

The bad kiddies got packs of '88 Donruss. The highlight of the box is Dale Murphy and his beautiful facsimile autograph on top. That and the Roberto Alomar rookie card.
