And on we go with my seemingly endless string of 50 cent packs. These sets are, by and large, all pretty much new to me because I lost interest in collecting after I graduated from high school in 1993. Let's see if I can opt in to the "4 Tier Chase Program" advertised on the wrapper.
390 - Dave Gallagher (According to the back of the card, Gallagher platooned with Ryan Klesko in left field in 1994. I wonder if he'll tell that to his grandchildren.)
401 - Cliff Floyd (Any guesses as to what Floyd just did in this photo?)
359 - Lenny Harris (Pinch-hit specialist and occasional reserve.)
385 - Chris Sabo (Wow, this isn't the Chris Sabo I know... knew. Who knew that Chris Sabo had a life after the Reds?)
336 - Kevin Mitchell Gold Rush (This is a one-per-pack parallel card. The foil is gold-ish and the background is faded and slightly chrome-ified. Mitchell hit 30 HRs in only 310 ABs in 1994.)
563 - Mo Vaughn Hitters Inc. (Wow, this is creepy.)
586 - Nate Minchey (This is what the Rookie cards look like. Minchey appeared in 15 games over 4 major league seasons.)
572 - Moises Alou (Still creepy.)
475 - Dave Magadan
508 - Scott Sanders (The backs of the cards are pretty nice looking by Score standards. Much better than the '96 cards, anyway.)
549 - Mike Huff
470 - Luis Sojo
No Cardinals in the pack, so any of these cards are up for grabs as usual.
