|AT LEAST I GOT A FUTURE HALL OF FAMER.|
Until maybe now.
I've been giving MLB 2012 a chance this year, and I'm getting hooked again. I like the offensive regression and the pitching reassertion. I'm watching it on TV, listening on the radio and reading more. I'm even thinking of buying a pack of '12 cards.
I can't believe I said that.
It got me thinking. When did I last purchase a pack of the current year's cards? I actually remembered and found the cards: 2007 Topps. Here is what I got in that single pack five years ago: Tom Glavine, Mark Teixeira, Ryan Howard, Carlos Silva, Tim Hudson, Jason Schmidt, A.J. Burnett, Freddy Sanchez, and Raul Ibanez. Several future Yankees there.
That's nine cards, enough to fill a page, but I think the pack had 10. I need to check the couch cushions. Anyway, looking at these cards now I realize why I didn't bother to buy more.
The last modern-era set I completed was '95 Topps. Might I dip my toes back in the water and put together this year's? Well, let's see if I can actually muster the gumption to buy a pack.
Wonder where's the nearest Target?
