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.

X3-IS Ichiro X3 - Mariners (randomed in part 3)


A couple of nice packs and I love the die cuts from this set.  Its too bad the Tigers and Mariners weren’t claimed, but they have been randomed off to the teams that received no inserts of their own in the main break.


2009 Upper Deck First Edition (two packs)
pack one
68 Nick Swisher - White Sox
17 Chipper Jones - Braves
45 Jonathan Papelbon - Red Sox

257 Billy Wagner - Mets (not First Edition regular set)
274 Chien-Ming Wang - Yankees (not First Edition regular set)
Starquest
SQ-9 David Wright - Mets


Two fairly pedestrian packs, and the first three cards being identical sucked.  But some good filler cards for teams and the two Starquests were at least good players.  It was odd that the three flagship set cards were mixed in to the back of the second pack.

160 Grady Sizemore - Indians
239 Billy Butler - Royals
30 Josh Thole - Mets

SB-98 Jermaine Dye UD Biography insert - White Sox
SB-165 Carlos Ruiz UD Biography insert - Phillies
UDGJ-GA Armando Galarraga game jersey - Tigers
213 Wes Helms - Marlins
522 Robert Ray - Blue Jays
534 Austin Kearns - Nationals
366 Michael Wuertz - Athletics
280 Blake DeWitt - Dodgers
291 Ryan Braun - Brewers
545 Ballparks Wrigley Field - Cubs



It’s a shame the hit was for an unclaimed team, but its destination is partially up to you guys (randomed in Part 3).  The Wrigley Field card has to be one of the best night cards I have ever seen and is possibly the best Cubs card in this break.  I knew I would be pulling a special Jermaine Dye card as I am apparently a magnet for his cards.  I love the Pure Heat insert, but I am a sucker for die cuts.  The Portraits is very cool as well.  It is kind of bad that I didn't pull one Oriole for Ryan out of these packs.

Slightly beat the odds with the All Star, but missed out on one gold.  No complaints here though since the only teams shut out on this set of packs were unclaimed.

There were a couple of dinged corners out of a couple of the packs, but nothing was damaged too noticeably.
