Random Contest - Pack 3: Bo

Pack #3 - Corrected, Extended, Rookie of the Year

Bo picked a pack with no team logos. The stickers stuck on this one were likely meant to label a box full of Rookies of the Year. Why anyone would have a box full of corrected cards I don't know.

Manufacturer: Topps - 10 cards for 10 points

Not much to say about these.

Year: 1988 - 4 cards for 20 points

1988 is a pretty choice year for worthless pack filling junk wax. If I was playing, I'd probably go with 1991. Five manufacturers, horribly overproduced, and Leaf, Stadium Club and Ultra were around to add more ballast for the year.

Team: Yankees - 2 cards for 20 points

The Razor card is kind of interesting. Apparently Chris Smith is one of Razor's exclusive prospects. He's a Yankees prospect so they'll probably trade him soon enough. Unless he's really good, then they'll dick around with him for a few years and keep him trapped behind some overpriced free agent until his career is well and truly trainwrecked. There was a second Yankee, but you'll see him later.

Sport: Football - 0 points

Despite choosing the thickest pack in the contest, there was not a single non-baseball sport card in there at all.

Player: Wade Boggs - 0 cards

No Boggs, but there was a Kevin Seitzer in there.

Weirdness: Checklists - 0 cards

No weirdness in the pack either. Bo started off so well too.

Total Points: 50

Here's the rest of the cards in the pack:

The Worst Card in the Pack:

Anyone who opened even a single solitary pack of Topps from 2006-2008 knows why this is the worst card.

And finally,
The Best Card in the Pack:

Two packs, two relics. Don't get used to this. This card shows Cabrera in a Marlins uni but is a Tiger according to the card. The swatch is a little off center too. Still, Cabrera is pretty good (even when he boozes it up before a big game) and the next best card in the pack is probably a 1992 Donruss Juan Gonzalez.


#1 Mad Guru - 121 points
#2 Mark's Ephemera - 82 points
#3 Bo - 50 points

Blue - Currently in the lead for the Grand Prize
Red - Currently in the toilet for the boobie prize
Black - good luck with the random drawing.

I never thought I'd say this but - I hope I stay in the toilet!
