Random Contest - Pack 8: Madding

Pack #8 - Teensy little baseball glove

Madding was able to get in on the contest because he was up late watching Connections. I'm rooting for Madding.

Manufacturer: Fleer - 5 cards for 5 points

I went goofy for all of these designs when they first came out. I am a sucker.

Year: 1993 - 3 cards for 15 points

EVERYBODY went goofy for '93 Leaf. You can pick up a box for less than 10 bucks now.

Team: Indians - 2 cards for 20 points

If you were a high school club and decided to swipe a major league uniform design, why would you choose THAT one?

Sport: Hockey - 0 cards

Basketball and racing in a weird sort of way were the sports in the pack.

Player: Roberto Alomar - 0 cards

I was even looking through the team cards and the backgrounds to find one of these player picks, no dice.

Weirdness: Movies - 0 cards

There was only 1 non-sports card in the pack and I had to look that one up to figure out if it was a movie or not. It wasn't.

Total Points: 40

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

The Worst Card in the Pack:

Speed Racer?? The NEXT Generation??? What the hell have you monsters done with Chim Chim??????

And finally,
The Best Card in the Pack:

This was a tough one. The whole pack was a mire of mediocrity with a few actual stars from weak sets. Bagwell won because he's Bagwell and for the whiggitywhack '97 Circa design.
