Opening Day Pack War Contest #32-36...

The end is so near I can almost taste it. Both of this contest and this substitute 'all in one' piece of crap I'm using for my scans. It's going out the window. Literally. Soon.
But, I'll struggle on as I know you are all dying to find out the conclusion of this. Those of you who are still alive that is....
1967'ers, Fuji, Dutch Card Guy, and the Wicked One

Pack 33
1967'ers

I am most definitely disappointed that Chuck Norris is not the Texas Rangers' mascot.

The bonus points on that card would be through the roof.

Play at the Plate said...

Captain is a horse. And you Captain Canuck, should be happy there is a mascot named Captain. Also, it would be very cool if the mascot was changed to Chuck Norris.

night owl said...

Is it over? Are we done? Where am I?

Greg Zakwin said...

Bills AND a Dirtbag in the same pack? That's a sure winner.

Morgan said...

I'm both excited and nervous about this bonus round. I hope my score can hold up!

Dave H said...

It has been a pretty neat box. I like it better than Victory hockey!

dawgbones said...

I think Morgan sent you a bribe!! I don't see anything but a pack full of Braves beating that score!!

LV said...

I just don't know about the mascot cards. Every time I see one, I think, what?!?!, because I don't think that some teams should have a mascot. If you do, it should at least represent your team, a little!

Kazi said...

you can throw that scanner my way

AdamE said...

Since when is Topps Town considered an insert and not pack filler? Wait forget that,hey Captain, I have a whole stack of inserts I would like to send you...

FanOfReds said...

So my three points means I need an awesome bonus round, huh?

Captain Canuck said...
