A place where Colorado Rockies baseball card collectors (all 3 of us) can waste some time reading about our favorite sport. The Rockies and their cards will be the primary focus, but I like to go off on tangents as well so anything and everything baseball related may be covered here.

Regular Autos unnumbered
FH-JA Jay Austin - Astros 2nd round 56th overall (hope his bat aim is better than his sticker aim)
FH-MM Mike Montgomery - Royals 1st round 36th overall
FH-JK Jason Knapp - Phillies 2nd round 71st overall
FH-EQ Edwin Quirarte - Giants 5th round 147th overall
FH-RP Ryan Perry - Tigers 1st round 21st overall
FH-CS Cody Satterwhite - Tigers 2nd round 67th overall
FH-ID Ike Davis - Mets 1st round 18th overall
FH-TR Tyson Ross - Athletics 2nd round 58th overall
FH-JL Josh Linblom - Dodgers 2nd round 61st overall

Green Parallel Autos /50
FH-DS Daniel Schlereth - 15/50 - Diamondbacks 1st round 26th overall (traded to Tigers)
FH-AS Aaron Shafer - 38/50 - Cubs 2nd round 65th overall

Purple Parallel Autos 1/1
FH-XA Xavier Avery - 1/1 (well d'uh) - Orioles 2nd round 50th overall

That was my very first pack pulled 1/1 ever and he isn't a bad prospect either.  Amazing that the Red Sox 27th rounder, Indians 22nd rounder, and Yankees 11th rounder got in this set but the Rockies (among other teams) 3rd rounder didn't.  But I'm used to it.  Let other teams' collectors gather their 28th round picks, I'll save my money to buy the boxes to sell them said 28th rounder hehe.  Jokes aside, I love this set and even though I have my complete set (and a Friedrich jersey on the way) I still may buy more boxes because they have a great price and great potential.

If you're not too attached to the Montgomery auto, I'd be interested in trading for it.
