If you found this lying on the ground, maybe in a rainy ditch, would you pick it up? Even if it was a little wet around the edges, maybe slightly scuffed with dirt and a touch of gasoline? Would you scoff at it, saying things like, "it's not even REAL Fleer"?
What if this was in a 75% off markdown bin at the local big box store, piled in with a bunch of leftover Halloween candy. You only have enough change to rescue the Omnipresent Mr. Griffey or a bag of slightly squished Reese's Peanut Butter Cups? What do you choose?
Actually, there's no real story behind this pack at all. I already posted a pack of this last month (oops), but this one is different. The cards are different! Different cards!
295 - Kris Benson
246 - Aaron Harang
209 - Josh Willingham (What if you woke up one morning and you were traded to the Washington Nationals? Okay, fine, I'll turn off the What-If Machine.)
117 - Jay Payton
119 - Mike Mussina Mini Die-Cut (Not bad. I didn't get one of these in my other pack. It looks like they tried to make the die cut look like they just cut off the border of a regular card, but it's slightly smaller than that.)
332 - Josh Fields (RC) (When do we get to see this guy? It seems like people have been talking about him for years now. Was he hurt last year?)
359 - Ryan Feierabend (RC) (This is the guy that the Mariners call up at the end of the year when all of the other pitchers are too injured and/or incompetent.)
RS-JP - Jonathan Papelbon Rookie Sensations (As states previously, I like these gaudy looking cards. But not Papelbon...)
RS-CJ - Conor Jackson (Nice. Two in a row. I probably got some poor kid's Rookie Sensation while he ended up with an extra Brad Ausmus base card.)
400 - Ryan Zimmerman Nationals Checklist (According to Wikipedia, his walk up music is "Superstar" by Lupe Fiasco.)
