2009 Allen & Ginter Box Break: Pack 8


In a Braves uniform!


3 Manny Parra
69 James Loney
194 Brandon Morrow
211 Kevin Millwood
128 Red Moore +2 points Negro Leaguer +1 Favorite team base card*
335 Justin Duchscherer SP +5 points
279 John Lester mini

NP45 Evan Longoria NP +4 points


No card released this year can possibly be better than this one. None. Period. Just give it up now and start preparing for 2010. I'll talk more about Red Moore tonight as he is going to be given the honor of being the card of the week/month/year/decade/eternity.

* From commish: "A player will be identified with a team based on the uniform (jersey, hat, whatever) that is shown on that card." Braves uni, baby!!!

That Red Moore card is SWEET! After seeing everyone's pack breaks, I think I am gonna join the party with a few packs manana...I would like that Longo card, so check out my breaks to see if I pull anything that ya want. Incidentally, I am giving a speech on the career of Satchel Paige tonight at the new State College, I managed to sneak a scan of his 53 Topps into the powerpoint...Us card collectors are taking over the world!!!

I do remember reading not too long ago that Red Moore was the only living member of the Atlanta Black Crackers teams from the 30s (I think they disbanded in '38). I think he is his 90's, but that would look even sweeter with an autograph, just saying...
