OK, I got my red ink auto. Now I've got to really turn up the heat on the Bearded Wonder. This is another abreviated 2 pack edition.
#248 Colby Rasmus #142 Lashawn Merritt #96 Geronimo #29 Jonathan Papelbon #AGR-JM Joe Mauer Relic - Favorite Player 8x5 = +40 - Sweet. Joe Mauer, my afore mentioned alternate universe possible favorite player (truth be told, I probably have about 5-7 players who I would confidently declare my "if only" favorite). Good thing is he's on the list so this one is worth a cool 40. Not too shabby, Joe. Not too shabby.
#75 David Wright Mini - Favorite Player +3 - Another favorite player lister. I can't remember. I'm pretty sure that this is Dayf's favorite. Yeah, that sounds right.
#NP63 Carlos Beltran National Pride
Pack Total: +43 Box Total: 195 PBB: 152
#9 Ryan Theriot #94 Paul Maholm #83 Ludwig Van Beethoven #22 Mariano Rivera -1
#61 Burke Kenny Beard Champion +2 - I was all set to send this off too Beardy to ease his pain on another phenominal come back by yours truly. But, I just noticed on his blog that it is already en rout. So I guess I'll just keep this little masterpiece for myself.
#338 Jason Wong SP +5
#304 Yunel Escobar Mini Sp A&G Back 7+2 = +9
#NP66 Joba Chamberlain -1
Pack Total: +14 Box Total: 209pts PBB: 138
Cocnlusions: That Mauer Relic is really nice. I love the design on these relics and autos and silks and such. This really is a fabulous set.
8 packs to go and I have my work cut out for me. I have a feeling Beardy is sweating it out a little bit. All I need is for my last hit to be a Sizemore and I'll blow right past him.
Also, this could be one of those boxes like Nachos Grande got with 4 hits. You never know.
