|HELLACIOUS ACTION SHOT.|
|THIS HAS A ROY HOBBS VIBE TO IT.|
Actually, I purchased some new baseball picture cards for the first time in five years. This was done partly because I needed something to write about and partly because I'm on a baseball kick. Like Cold Stone Creamery Cake & Shake milkshakes. Cholesterol never tasted so good.
|FROM PERFECT TO PERFECTLY AWFUL.|
The box was interesting. First, the plastic covering was nearly as impenetrable as those plastic shell domes for electronics and such. Then when I got it opened, the cards, packaged smartly like the old cello packs, were housed on one side of a divided box but nothing but air on the other.
|THIS WOULD'VE FIT IN NICELY WITH THE '73 SET.|
Probably not. I've seen this clever packaging before. Makes it seem you're getting more ... only ... not.
|HE'LL THROW ANOTHER NO-HITTER.|
I don't know how many League Leader and Active Leader cards there are, but I got a total of eight from the box, including No. 324 featuring The Clean (Jim Thome) surrounded by The Clear (Alex Rodriguez) and The Cream (Jason Giambi).
|LET'S PLAY GUESS WHO'S THE REAL MAN.|
That about covers the highlights of the opening. I'm officially back to the future.
|BREW CREW FANS, THIS ONE'S A KEEPER.|
|I CAN'T STOP LOOKING AT THIS CARD.|
|COULD THE ROOKIE TROPHY BE ANY SMALLER?|
