100- packs are back to Texas!

When I walked into Walgreen's last Monday I hoped I would find a 100-pack of baseball cards but I didn't expect it. Yet there they where for  the  1st time in who knows how long.At the time I hadn't seen a 100-pack of baseball cards for about a year. I got my Mom to buy 2 of the 3 because my Dad owed me a couple from baseball. I had to clean up my room some to get the 1st one though.That up there is the 1 that was on the front.Kind hard to believe that he hit .219 with 6 homeruns in 2015.
It turned out to be a bit of a Edgar Martinez hot-pack.
I got 2 more Yankees but they were duplicates unfortunately.
Another card for my 1993 Ted Williams set build! That's one thing I love about 100-packs. They're so random!
Some horizontal stuff! I semi-collect cards that show the Met's homerun apple train thing.

I really love these 1995 virtual reality cards.
I think I might collect the early 1980s Fleer sets. There so kind of hole-in-the-wall.
Gordon Beckham hit .182 in 2018.
Stadium Club! That Bryan Harvey was only my 3rd 1991 Topps Stadium Club card.1995 is a nice set.
At first I thought that Steve Cishek was Pat Neshek.
I really, really, love cards with players japanese statistics. That's a interesting factoid: " Orestes can conduct interviews in English, Spanish, or Japanese."
Those 2 2017 Topps Opening Day cards were the only keepers in the whole pack.
Who knows, maybe Yoan Moncada will strike out less than 200 times in 2019.Risky proposition.
It's kind of annoying how they have team set cards. It's kind of confusing.

And some nice early 1980s cards to wrap this up. Overall, it lived up to expectations.I had a lot of fun opening it looking through the cards.
Yesterday I was saddened to hear of Frank Robinson's passing. He was an all-time great.
Goodnight, Frank Robinson, wherever you are. 


  1. If you are wanting to trade sone of these cards, I would be interested in Jose Ramirez card that you started the post with. You can email me at tim(underscore)gretchen(underscore)marriage AT

    Thanks, Tim

  2. That Ted Williams Bagwell card features a nice action shot. I don't typically buy these types of repacks... but I just realized after seeing these cards that I just purchased something very similar at the card show. I picked up over 100 grab bags and the cards resemble the stuff you found in your repack.
