I honestly have no idea where I got this pack. I am pretty sure it was in a repack box of some sort, but for some reason I hung onto it instead of sorting it into my collection. There's not much here. Opening Day cards really only work in theory (it would be nice if the cards had different photos from the base design) and also only if the design variation looks decent. I think this year's red look is okay and the white look from 2007 wasn't terrible (though, don't get me started on the mascots.) This, however, was not a good idea. Even the pack wrapper is hideous. Theres one reason I chose to post the pack, which you'll find out below.
Let's see if I pulled a "Hot Young MLB Star" like Jerome Williams:
23 - Steve Finley (The miniature outline of the player in the lower left corner is incredibly silly. This came from the regular 2004 design, of course.)
78 - Angel Berroa (A Rookie Cup guy.)
9 - Kevin Millar (I guess you'd have to like Boston to appreciate this guy.)
60 - Greg Maddux (Here's a guy we can all appreciate. This is a great photo of Maddux in a throwback Braves uniform. I'm not a Braves fan by any stretch of the imagination, but it's hard not to like this card, although I'm sure the regular set uses the same photo and looks better.)
On the back, we learn that Maddux threw a shutout in 12 consecutive seasons. Will anyone ever do that again? That's amazingly consistent work. Maddux is set to announce his retirement on Monday, in case any of you slept through the entire weekend, Friday inclusive.
12 - Jay Payton
63 - Alex Gonzalez (Yeah, there were two more cards left in this pack, but none worth talking about.)
