that, that also has a possible reference to an obscure John Entwhistle song is all right with me. Not to mention it looks like a possible inspiration for this.
While these were by far the awesomest cards int eh packages, there was other cool stuff in there as well. These came from Trader Crack:
MLB Showdown Chipper Jones promo
This is a promo giveaway for the MLB Showdown game. I was able to pick up a promo from the Wizards of the coast store at the Mall of America back when these first came out, but unfortunately for the Braves fan drooling over the Andruw and Chipper promos, I got Corey Koskie instead. Nine years later, I finally have a Chipper!
Three Topps205 minis
This knocks me down to 16 needed for the mini set. I wonder which mini set I'll complete first, this one or my 1-350 mixed 2006-2009 Allen & Ginter mini set...
A strange Canadian Diet Pepsi Tom Glavine card I've never seen before in my life
I've seen a WHOLE lot of Tom Glavine cards in my day, but I ain't never seen this one.
Here's some stuff from Mark:
Ace Pilot Grover
I don't know what set this is from but it needs to go in my "Kick-butt epic weird oddball non-sports card binder" stat. Actually, I need to create that binder just for this card. A is for awesome.
Dinosaurs Attack! cards for the set
Why, oh why can't we have another insanely gross and violent set like this one nowadays?? Actually, now that I come to think of it, I think we DID.
2009 Smokies Schedule
Ryno on a minor league schedule! How cool is that? Ryne Sandberg was the manager of the Tennesse Smokies last year and did a pretty dang good job of it. Ryne might be managing up in the bigs before too long. If there are any Sandberg supercollectors out there, it looks like he's in the Smokies' 2009 team set.
Thanks for the stuff guys, I've got you two on my "to send" list once I am able to send out cards again. Keep the want lists updated!
And the final results on which sticker is coolest...
Chomping a skater is cooler than actually skating.
