That Cuddyer card is pretty sweet.

Morgan said...

1. I agree with Greg.
2. There seems to be a trend with these mascots.
3. Two catchers in full gear in one pack?! Sweet.

night owl said...

Hanson saved me.

All those zeroes gave me flashbacks to Gint-a-Cuffs.

Hackenbush said...

I got Ian Stewart! Oh Boy!

Dave H said...

do you think Prince was giving Braun a good-bye hug in that pic?

Kazi said...

I must have missed some packs--we're at packs 2900, 3000, 3100 and 3200---hope I can hang in a bit longer

dawgbones said...

Damn, Morgan absolutely killed that puppy!!! I demand a re-count!!

We should get bonus points for trying to decipher some of these Captchas!!

Play at the Plate said...

Catcher cards rock! Even out of their gear they rock. The Mauer pic is great

Cardhobbyist said...

I spotted the error, there is a Red Sox player instead of a Brave.

AdamE said...

If mascot autos are even worth ten cents my kids are going to college on all the Baxter Bobcat autos they have.

bamlinden said...

McCann......AGAIN!!!!

I call bullcrap.

BTW.....eleventy-seven is my lucky number.

Jafronius said...

Thanks for retrieving my posts! Perhaps Jafronius is a bad word up there in Canadia. BTW, did you get my e-mail?

Oh, and does Card Hobbyist and Hackenbush get partial points for having a catcher in full gear on the card, evern though the card is for another player?

LV said...

I love the Freddie Freeman and Geo Soto cards! Those mascot cards are weird...the Diamondbacks mascot (in my mind) should probably be a snake, just sayin'.

Fuji said...

I thought the same thing when I saw the Mauer card.

Captain Canuck said...

no more bonus points for this post
