Greetings from Nowhere

I'm sutck in the middle of the Adirondacks with so many aunts and uncles yapping about dead bugs. I say to myself, welcome to hell.

Anyway, I just got here yesterday, and almost immediately I went into town and grabbed some cards. This guy had mix packs of all kinds of stuff. So I but and got 5 packs of crap. You could see the front and backs had a few good cards, like Jeter, Posada, Howard, Cal, Gwynn and even an All Time Fan Favorites Card.
