I got a little carried away with the top 40 countdown, so that's why this one took a backseat for a while. However, here we are again, back on top of things.
Doug Jones (not that guy from all those Guillermo Del Toro movies) has an extravagant beard.
Deion Sanders is Deion Sanders, and even baseball cards of him are pretty freakin' cool.
But, of course, they all don't compare to the BIG ROOKIE HIT...
Luis Polonia's shot is pretty awesome, except for the 'reminding me that he exists part'
Dan Wilson...Dan Wilson...how do I turn this into a meta joke about a blogger...
Also, this is a Best Seat in the House insert of Roberto Kelly. Wow. They still thought he was big back then.
I love getting cards of Eck, especially 90's ones.
Ben Grieve's rookie card must have been a really big deal around 1998. Well, 16 years later it isn't that spectacular. He's basically the Brendan Frasier of the MLB. Big in the late 90's, what the hell's he doing now? Nothing.
Also, when Armando Benitez, who'll be lucky to get a single Hall of Fame vote, is your pack highlight, there is something wrong. At least it's his rookie card...
Speaking of great shots, Pat Borders' cards have a million of him. I'm not saying he's as good as Ricky Bones, but his shots are very cool.
And then there's Sid Fernandez. Something about Fernandez' card makes me not want to trust him. It's like he's opening up the back of the truck, and sneering, knowing exactly what's about to happen. He's like one of the villains from Taken.
Ken Hill has a nice bubblegum shot.
Mike Lieberthal's is best because in the dark ages before Carlos Ruiz and after Darren Daulton, he was the Phillies' catcher, and he was actually pretty good. And this is his rookie card (ish). So yeah.
Tomorrow (?) I will post the last third. And yes, we get to the good inserts.
