Random Contest - Pack 6: Anthony K.

Pack #6 - This Belongs To the 1974 Red Sox

This is one of the thicker Random Packs. Does more cards equal more points?

Manufacturer: Topps - 16 cards for 16 points

There were far more Topps than any other manufacturer in these packs. Anthony hit a mother lode here.

Year: 1994 - 6 cards for 30 points

Anthony picks the optimal choice again. The runner up was 1992 with 5 cards.

Team: Giants - 0 cards

Smart strategy here picking Giants, it just didn't work out. I would have chosen Giants, Rangers or Cardinals as they are teams in more than one sport. Rangers would have been the way to go as there's a bunch of Texas players in the pack.

Sport: Football - 0 cards

One lone hoops card in the pack means another goose egg.

Player: Rickey Henderson - 0 cards

I'm tempted to give him a bonus point simply because there was a Rickey card in one of the other packs, but it wouldn't matter anyway.

Weirdness: Country Music - 0 cards

A surprisingly specific weirdness choice. Alas, there was only a checklist and Topps Ad in the pack.

Total Points: 46

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


The Worst Card in the Pack:

There were two Triliceks in the pack so he is deemed the bum.

And finally,
The Best Card in the Pack:

David got happy with the relic cards! How exactly did Vernon Wells go from being one of the best up-and-coming players to the worst player in the history of humanity after a big contract and an off year? Baseball nerds are fickle.

Standings:

#1 Mad Guru - 121 points
#2 gcrl - 88 points
#3 Mark's Ephemera - 82 points
#4 Bo - 50 points
#5 Anthony K. - 46 points
#6 Play at the Plate - 38 points

Legend:
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'm guessing that you aren't going in order right? Cause I had a pack somewhere in the 4-6 slots, but mine hasn't been posted yet.

When I first came up with the contest, I wrote the numbers 1-10 on the packs. I am going in the order of the numbers on the packs. The rest in order:

7 - Tribe Cards
8 - Madding
9 - White Sox Cards
10 - NicoLax24

So you'll have to wait till the end, but you get the excitement of knowing exactly what you'll need to take a prize.

Oh I gotcha, I totally missed that detail. The suspense builds
