2004 Fleer Tradition

This one's been lying around for at least a month. Here we go.

Let's tear in.

Top to Bottom:
201 John Vander Wal (Some scrubby Brewer I can't remember hearing about, despite the fact that he played 117 games for them in 2003.)
286 Luis Castillo
109 Mark Ellis

194 Joe Borowski
139 Scott Rolen
473 Trio Prospects - Mike Hessman, Chris Waters, Greg Aquino

362 Ryan Franklin
335 Aaron Boone (Best picture in the pack, Boone's on his knees making a sliding catch of a foul ball. His pose is also worshipful in some sense, like he's receiving some sort of divine intervention or something.)

56 John Lackey
13 Braves Team Leaders

Grade: C
Not a bad looking set, but no good pulls to speak of. Fleer's decision to vary the color of the cards backs according to the team was a good one. My life, however, has not been changed by this pack.

Keep visiting Thorzul Will Rule. Trade Me Anything is still open, and there's a great 1981 Fleer Tournament now in progress.

Heh, I don't remember that Aaron Boone card. That's an awesome photo.

Well, I wouldn't be surprised if Bagwell was on the juice in his playing days...
