Ah crap, we lost George already...
Well, I've alluded to the fact I've already opened some of my packs. So without further delay, lets get to it!
Cabinet Card: Mausoleum at Halicarnassus +5
Oh snap son, this place is brimming with Zombyankees waiting to eat your brains.
Running Box Total: +5
Omar Infante SP +2
Palaces and Strongholds: Leeds Castle +3
Allen and Ginter Back Mini: Daryl Strawberry +2
Pack Total: +7
Running Box Total: +12
OK, so, we dodged any really horrible cards, but other than a mini and an insert, not so much on the positive side. Could have been a better start.
Abe Vigoda +1
Palaces and Strongholds: Summer Palace +3
David Price SP +2
Black Bordered Mini: Adrian Gonzalez +3
Pack Total: +9
Running Box Total: +21
Hey, this pack turned out pretty decent. Always good to get a bonus point from some guy named Abe Vigoda, and an insert, SP, and black bordered mini are nothing to shake a stick at.
Across the Years: Jose Bautista +2
Full Sized Relic: Scott Rolen +10
Regular Mini: Evan Longoria
Pack Total: +12
Running Box Total: +33
Ugh. Almost blanked except for our first of three hits, and it was a weak hit at that. Was hoping for a Jon Jay relic or bat, or a Cardinals, or a printing plate, or a Pee Wee Herman DNA Relic, or something. At least it wasn't part of Robinson "Eat Yo Brains" Cano's entail-stained pants or anything!
Grand Central Terminal
Across the Years: Robinson "Eat Yo Brains" Cano +1 (+2 for AtY, -1 for Yankee)
Framed Miniature Relic: Jared Weaver +10
Short Print Mini: Rickey Henderson +3
Pack Total: +14
Running Total: +47
Bleh. I'm not mentioning anymore Zombyankees by name. Then they'll pop out of these delightful wrappers and try and eat me.
That wraps up the initial unwrapping. Current box total is +47, with a projected total of (+42 from packs, divided by 4 packs, times 24 total packs, +5 from the cabinet card) +257. I can guarantee you that won't happen, that would imply I get 12 hits in the box or get crazy mad inserts and favorite players and stuff. Not. Happening.
Lets keep this in the family.
