2014 Adventures in Repacks: Part 10 - Bring on the baseball - Part 2

50 cards and a bonus! Lets continue with this repack!

1987 Nestle Dream Team Robert Gibson - Despite the damage, this is my favourite card in the repack. And there is a bonus that this is an oddball as well.
2010 Topps Carlos Monasterios
2010 Topps Logan Ondrusek
1988 Donruss Mike Devereaux
1993 Donruss Stan Royer
1982 Donruss Lary Sorensen - I knew I remembered Lary's name from somewhere. Then I recalled this:
Sorensen's sixth offense resulted in a multi-year prison sentence. On February 2, 2008, he was found by police unconscious in his car in a ditch off 23 Mile Road in Chesterfield, Michigan. He had a .48 BAC and alcohol poisoning. One expert said that half of the population would die with a BAC that high. 
Wow.  That is amazing. I'm stunned he didn't just float home.
1990 Upper Deck Brian DuBois
1992 Donruss Terry Leach - A definite contender for my favourite photo of the 50. But the competition would get much stronger as it went on.
1993 Donruss Steve Cooke
1989 Topps Traded Jerry Browne
1987 Topps Kevin Romine
1988 Topps Garth Iorg - A Blue Jay!
1987 Donruss Rick Leach - Another one!
1987 Topps Mookie Wilson
1987 Donruss Dave Sax - I had no idea that Steve Sax had an older brother that also played ball until I pulled this card.
1991 Score Todd Ritchie
2011 Topps Traded Bill Hall
2011 Topps Brett Cecil - And the Blue Jays keep on coming.
1987 Donruss Moose Haas - Baseball seriously needs more people named Moose.
1993 Leaf Juan Guzman - About halfway through the 50, and my 4th Blue Jay. What a spectacular repack!
1991 Classic Joe Vitiello
1988 Donruss Donnie Moore
1992 Donruss Joe Klink
1997 Topps Paul Sorrento
1988 Topps Ken Dixon
1997 Finest Joe Carter - And here's #6. And there's a bonus that it is a higher end card for the time, and it's of a PC guy.
2001 Bowman Tim Raines Jr. - Getting stuff from this set was unexpected. It reminded me of going to a Jays/Orioles game in 2004ish, and they announced Tim Raines was pinch hitting. They announced him without adding the Jr at the end of his name, and I was unable to keep myself from blurting out "Whoa! He's still playing! Baltimore must be desperate!"
1999 Bowman Cesar King
2001 Bowman Jason Belcher
2010 Topps AL Batting Average League
1982 Topps Mickey Rivers
1994 Ultra Matt Nokes
1990 Fleer Dennis Martinez
1992 Topps Ed Sprague - 7 Blue Jays among 50 cards. I swear I didn't pack this repack myself.
2002 Upper Deck Kaz Ishii
2002 Upper Deck Wiki Gonzalez - I sense a play at the plate! This card offers a very interesting view of one as well.
2011 Topps Seth Smith - And here's the aftermath of one. This could also have been an argument card had the umpire's ruling been different.
1986 Donruss The Rookies Eric King
1986 Topps Rich Gedman
1986 Topps Rick Manning

1986 Topps Harold Reynolds - An OK rookie card to pull. At least for addition to my misc. binder.
2012 Topps John Danks
1992 Ultra Dave Righetti
1988 Fleer Paul Kilgus
2008 Upper Deck FE Jimmy Rollins
1989 Topps Glossy All-Star Ryne Sandberg
1989 Topps Glossy All-Star Cal Ripken
1989 Topps Glossy All-Star Terry Steinbach
1988 Topps Glossy All-Star Jose Canseco
1988 Topps Glossy All-Star Will Clark
1989 Topps Glossy All-Star Rick Reuschel
1989 Topps Glossy All-Star Julio Franco

and the bonus item:
2008 Topps Heritage T205 Mini - Ichiro

Nice, but it really doesn't seem that special alongside some of the base cards from the 50.

Oh well, back to the card show not-quite dime box tomorrow.


  1. That's definitely a nice Joe Carter--I'm glad you were able to add a few Jays.

  2. I always see that Seth Smith card as weird. Why the hell have a card where you can't even see the player's face?!?!

  3. I cant go anywhere near Target without picking up at least one of these repacks.
