The Angels In Order said...

It takes a Yankee to ruin a perfectly good Angels card.
Bastage.

Greg Zakwin said...

Kersh!

AdamE said...

I barely made it under the gun on that last comment...

Is Uggla's face deformed or does he just have a Lenny Dykstra sized chew in there?

After this you should do a bench warmer box break. That is something I could get... behind...

Dave H said...

My pack kicked so much ass!!

Love the spot the error and old Maxy making the mix.

Jeff Wilk said...

Madison Bumgarner - if by "cool hat" you mean "sh*tty hat", then yeah... cool hat.

Play at the Plate said...

I need that McCann for my Rainbow!!

Great pack for me. Thanks B!!

FanOfReds said...

Holliday, Carpenter, and the ugly Jeffress shot? Boy, Baseball Dad's pack would've scored about -1,000,000 for me.

dawgbones said...

Yeah, I don't get the whole Moose thing eiether, But, then again, what's a big green fuzzy whatever the hell he is, got to do with Philadelphia!!

Kazi said...

I'm still hanging in

Cardhobbyist said...

Okay, these Braves cards need to slow down so I can get some in my pack lol.

bamlinden said...

McCann....baseball's equivalent to a bracket buster.

Looking forward to the final push.

LV said...

I have the Jeremy Jeffres card from the Topps base set...and he's a Brewer in it. Another photoshop from Topps!

Morgan said...

I love that Uggla. Surprise, surprise.

Does that qualify as "visible tobacco"?

Jafronius said...

Anyone having problems with Blogger erasing posts? It's like the second or third post that's been erased after showing up on the page. Of course, with my luck, this one will stick.

Jafronius...

for whatever reason, Blogger does not like you and sends most if not all of your comments into the Spam Pile.

I find them when I clean it out every week or so...

Fuji said...

A lot of the pitcher cards have nice action shots... especially the Madison.
