The first card is....
78 Leonardo Da Vinci
Can't ask for a better card than this to start off the 2010 set. I wonder if Leo has anything to do with the Ginter code?
80 Will Venable
I really need to figure out something else to say about this guy other than Max's kid. A little help, Pads fans?
44 Chris Coughlan
Swiped Hanson's rookie of the year award last year. WE SHALL HAVE OUR REVENGE.
210 Chris Johnson RC
No clue who this guy is. His stats say he's played Four Hundred Six games so either those are minor league totals or he's an awfully old rookie.
174 Eric Byrnes
He's with the Mariners? He's still in the League?
303 Trevor Cahill SP
I'm assuming cards 301-350 are short prints once again, just as they have been since 2007.
Mark Teixeira mini
My first mini is.... Mark Teixeira. How disappointing. He's on my list of favorite players just underneath JD Drew.
Oh goody a no-number variation. At least it can't go in my A&G minis Frankenset now.
TDH27 Ken Griffey Jr This Day in History
Me likey this insert set. Baseball and history tidbits all in one! I am going to have to show great restraint not to cut out the mini card on the first doubles I get of these things. If I had the cash to blow I'd buy a set just for that purpose.
Ginter Code Ad
I have to say this year's code is going to be much harder than last year's. The clues were pretty hard to miss last year. After tearing through my box, I don't recall any oddities to help out in solving this year's cypher.
Pretty successful pack, that! Short print, no number mini and a nifty card of my favorite Renaissance Man. I'm going to be working long hours the next few days, but I'll wash down some No-doze with a Red Bull and try to get something from my box break up by tomorrow.
