Ortiz of Anaheim. Is this Ramon? Heck, I don't know. Let's just say it is and be done with it.
Chan Ho Park in a Rangers uni fills another hole in the set. Did you know Park played for the Rangers? I sure didn't. I looked it up and found out he was with the Pirates last year! Chan Ho is in the league no longer, he'll be pitching in Japan in 2011.
Scott Rolen had eluded my grasp as well. This card, not the other 15 Rolen variations in the Topps206 set. You think the new Topps206 set has variations? HOO DOGGIE. This set was lousy with variations. Short printed ones too. Blecch. No wonder I'm still not close to completing it.
Aww yeah. We have just entered the "HAWT Rookies what I didn't pull out of packs and which were stupidly overpriced in 2002" zone. Corey Patterson may have had five tools, but the Cubs wrecked them worse than your neighbor Bill wrecked your socket set after borrowing it to install his new satellite dish. Who uses a ratchet wrench as a friggin hammer?? Speaking of things the Cubs ruined...
AWWWW YEAAAAAAAHHH MARK PRIOR ROOKIE CARD FOR A NICKEL.
It's still overpriced.
Last one - Austin Kearns. Austin is still bouncing around the league. Last year he signed with the Indians in the offseason, got off to a good start, was traded to the Yankees, and promptly sucked. The Yankees released him in the offseason and he signed right back with the Indians. Good job, Austin! Screw those Yankees!
I managed to take a small bite out of that set. Always bring your lists, kiddos! You never know what you'll find.
