Pack Break: 1990 Collegate Collection Michigan State University

I got this pack from ChemGod over at Bad Wax for the contest that he held that involved the new forums that he's got running over there. Let's see if this is bad wax or not.

#177 Mike Eddington - Mike broke Kirk Gibson's MSU HR record in 1984 by hitting 20 HRs. He played one year of minor league ball for Oakland and that was it for him

#176 Steve Garvey - Oh look! A player that I know! Garvey won the NL MVP in 1974 and was a good all around player spending all of his time in the big leagues in SoCal with the Dodgers and Padres.

#175 Brad Lamont, Jr. - When this card was made in 1990, Brad set the record for most appearances by an MSU pitcher with 29. I'm glad he played a lot in college, because he never played anywhere after that

#174 Dan Masteller - Do I see a collation trend here? Dan was chosen by Minnesota 293rd overall in the 1989 amateur draft. He made the majors in 1995 with the Twins and had 71 at bats and hit a mediocre .237. He went back to the minors in 1996 and was never heard from again.

#52 Don "Zippy" Thompson - A hockey player! Zippy scored 5 goals against Michigan on Feb. 21, 1970. I can't find any info if he played pro hockey or not.

#51 Frank E. Pellerin - An assistant coach for the Spartan baseball team from 1953-1985, Frank saw more than 1,300 games played.

#70 Cordell Ross - Led the Big Ten in batting average hitting a whopping .461. Cordell never made it past high A ball in the Tigers organization.

#69 John Chandik - Another hockey player. Was one of the top 15 scholor-atheletes at MSU in 1963. Now teaches at St. Norbert College in Wisconsin.

As interesting as these people are, this is bad wax. Thanks chemgod!
