Got eight packs at the Target on Barrett highway in Kennesaw. Give me a few minutes and I'll have the scans uploaded.
256 Reggie Abercrombie
Ok, the very first card of 2009 is pretty unambiguously awesome.
170 CC Sabathia
Send to Thorzul. Send directly to Thorzul. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200.
192 Collin Balester
Since this is a nobody it's a good time to show off the back. Pretty good design, if you ask me. Up on the top left corner there is a factoid or like this one, "6 Degrees of Mickey Mantle" with the answers hugging the top curve. Pretty neat use of that space!
66 Dustin Pedroia 2008 AL MVP
2008's version of Phil Rizzuto.
266 Todd Wellemayer
When it comes to Todd, I am Sgt. Schultz. I know nothing, I KNOW NOTHING... Purdy photo though!
220 Jay Bruce gold parallel #0772/2009
TTT7 Hanley Ramirez Topps Town
Thank GOD they made these things more than a waste of cardboard. I might actually sign up for the stupid thing now.
Topps Attax code
Man, I can't wait for this stuff. Anybody want to see me do a case break? I wouldn't actually give you any of the cards, you'd just send me the money and I'd bust the case.
271 Cliff Lee 2008 AL Cy Young
2008's version of... um nobody. I don't think anyone ever quite did what he did.
315 Hiroki Kuroda
Here's one for Night Owl up in the snow.
19 Edgar Gonzalez

247 Yuniesky Betancourt
You know, the photos look a whole lot better this year now that everyone is not ducking to avoid a bump in the ceiling. Man, I'm so glad 2008 is over and I can go back to liking Topps' base set again.
Seven more packs to go!
