I had to make a run to Target to get some things the other day and picked up 3 packs of Goudy, 1 pack of Topps Chrome and 2 packs of TA&G. I'll be posting these packs today and tomorrow. But now, here are packs 1 and 2 of the Goudy
Pack 1 Pat Burrell Jason Schmidt Gary Matthews Josh Hamilton David Ortiz Chad Cordero Carl Crawford Noah Lowery
My favorite card in this pack is Cordero cheesin' it up looking like he knows something we don't. I give this pack a C+. I did get the great card of Cordero, as well as 2 All-Stars in Ortiz and Crawford, but the rest of the pack looks like a horrible trade someone would make in a fantasy league.
Pack 2 Randy Johnson Jeremy Bonderman Michael Cuddyer Albert Pujols (SP) Garrett Anderson Billy Wagner Phil Huges Ryan Zimmerman
This pack gets a solid B+. This might be the first time I've ever seen a card featuring Randy Johnson smiling. The star of this pack is the Pujols short print. With the generic city background and a look on his face that says "I'm not quite smiling, but I do have an expression and I know I'm awesome." The back of the card states that whenever Big Al hits a home run "it's going to be a significant one". Significant in what terms? A game winner? His 500th? The 3rd of the day he promised to little Jimmy on his sick bed? I'd like to know what's significant to Pujols.
More packs tomorrow and a box break either tomorrow or Friday.
