OK... some more fun times to be had! I think I'll condense this into 2 posts to meet the time limit. So... 6 packs of fun!
Mike "Glub Glub" Trout
Worlds Capitals Buenos Aires, Argentina : +2
Full-Sized Relic of Austin "I'm also not a real champion" Weinerschke : +8 (I think)
Mini A&G Back Maria Gabriela Isler : +2
Pack Total: +12
Running Total: +89
Analysis: I believe I get full points for the Weinerschke relic. Since the rules specify BASE cards and MINIS are at a -1 disadvantage, and he is not a Yankee (though he really ought to be...) I believe I get full points. Correct me if I am wrong, Commish!
Brett "I Hate Yankees" Gardner : -1
Craig Biggio : +2
Chuck Klosterman : +1
Worlds Capitals Taipei, Taiwan : +2
Mini of Judah Friederlanderlichihatethisguy
Pack Total: +4
Running Total: +93
Analysis: Ugh, that Judah guy showed up again. I hate that guy. Also, weak pack. Not going to break 200 at this rate anymore. Be lucky to break 150!
Fairs and Festivals Dia De Los Muertos : +2
Framed Mini-Relic of Jim Rice : +20
Mini Where Nature Ends - Sandro Botticelli : +3
Pack Total: +25
Running Total: +118
Analysis: Boom! Nice little pickup there. Those framed mini relics are about two per case, so yeah. Would have been nice to have gotten a FP or something out of it, but we'll take Mr. Rice!
Snoop "Snoop-A-Loop!" Lion : -1
Derek "I'm Glad You're Retiring... YANKEE" Jeter : -1
Paul Molitor : +2
Natural Wonders Moeraki Boulders : +2
BB Mini Gio Gonzalez : +4 (BB, FT)
Pack Total: +6
Running Total: +124
Analysis: Wow, that was a volatile pack. More scoring cards than non-scoring cards. Naturally there are two negative cards in there. Yay.
Alex "Roid"riguez : -1
Rodger "Roid" Clemens
Fairs and Festivals Pingxi Lantern Festival : +2
BB Mini Lou Brock : +3
Pack Total: +4
Running Total: +128
Analysis: I hate Alex Roidriguez. That is all.
John "THE MAN" Sullivan : +1
Jordan Zimmerman : +1 FT
Dwight "Doc" Gooden
Air Supremacy V-22 Osprey : +2
Mini Trevor Rosenthal
Pack Total : +4
Running Total: +132
Analysis: At least I got a plane!
So that brings us to the 2/3rds point and into the home stretch... a LOT of scoring cards this round, so I might break it up into 2 pics. I guess I have a little hope left... 6 packs? Sure, we got this...
Also... it would appear as though my crap-relic didn't make it in the picture. You'll have to believe me... because... why would I lie and say I pulled that pile of junk if I didn't? ANYONE would be better than him... anyone...
Keep it in the family.
