A Quick Repack Box Before Dinner

Alright, in addition to the box of 2013 Topps, I also grabbed a repack box containing 20 packs.  It had a Bowman Platinum pack on the front, so I figured it was a win.  Let's see if I can get through all this before my wife calls me to go eat Vietnamese......

A little appetizer of 5-year old gum, anyone?

The box contained 2 packs of 2008 Stadium Club.  These two sequences of cards were repeated in each.  Guess which 2 cards made it into the "keep" pile?

A baddass Chipper, a Coco, and lots of other cards that almost certainly go to other bloggers (or their wives).  That Nick Franklin is just a cool looking card, and that Adam Moore is an autograph.  Great box for Mariners so far.....

More cards for bloggers, and a mascot for yours truly....

A Verlander non-rookie, a sweet view of the Mariners logo, and CC Sabathia's belly button round out this group, so to speak.

That Arod/Jeter got me excited.  And a great Mattingly.  I'm still not on board for the non-baseball related cards, but at least it's kind of cool, and I'm sure someone will want it.  Edgar, tuck in your shirt, bro!
That Carlos Lee is one sweet card.  I was taken aback.

All those Mariners and no Griffeys?

 Ahhhhhhhhh.  That was good.  And I've just been summoned.  Pho time!


  1. Mmm, pho!

    Great pack! Loving the Chipper, CoCo Crisp, Lincecum's and Saunders.

    Nice, fun break!

  2. Not too shabby a repack. And it's "Sears Tower", not Willis. We don't dig that Willis name here. But I do dig that Pauly card right next to it (hint hint).

  3. I haven't repacked in a while. Maybe I should start again. I'd love to pull a Seaver short print and some Stadium Club. Mostly I just get a bunch of 2007 UD first edition. Nice pulls!
