2014 Adventures in Repacks: Part 61 - A Great Bonus

Since I had gone more than a week without busting anything repack related, time to bust another one. Up now, one of the 4 packs/50 cards/bonus repacks.

Hey! This is my second Hostess card I've pulled from one of these, although I like getting cards of a Brewers guy over a Yankees guy any day. Still, that's a nice Twinkie-stained card from 1976, and still a keeper.

And now, the 50 cards.

2010 AL BA Leaders
1988 Topps Matt Diaz
1988 Topps McGregor
1988 Topps Bobby Witt
1988 Topps Jose Uribe
1988 Topps Wade Boggs - Sure, it is 1988 Topps, and there are millions of these out there, but it is still nice to pull a big name from the *00 position of honour.
1988 Topps Doug Drabek
1996 Leaf Preferred Matt Williams - My first '96 Leaf Preferred card!
1994 Stadium Club Deion Sanders
1991 Leaf Henry Cotto - "You want to laugh at my warm up jacket? Go ahead. I dare you."
1986 Topps Rod Carew - Another *00 card in this repack. It isn't as badly centered as my cropping makes it seem.
1986 Topps Ted Power
1988 Donruss Bill Dawley
1989 Topps Mickey Hatcher
1984 Donruss George Wright - I don't see much 1984 Donruss popping up in my repacks.
1989 Topps Danny Gladden
1989 Topps Jose DeLeon
1991 Donruss George Bell - Jays content! WOO-HOO!
1989 Topps Kirk McCaskill
1989 Topps Jerry Don Gleaton
1993 UD Henry Cotto - "Yeah. Someone laughed at my jacket. You don't want to see what happened. It wasn't pretty."
1982 Donruss Mike Norris - Forget not finding much 1984 Donruss, you really don't see any early Diamond Kings cards either. What a great keeper from a repack.
1983 Topps Mike Fischlin
1983 Topps Don Sutton - A lot of 80's Hall of Famer cards in this repack. Interesting.
1981 Donruss Ron LeFlore - I thought this was my first 1981 Donruss of an Expo. Oops. Close enough for the binder, I guess.
1988 Fleer Ted Higuera
1981 Donruss George Riley - Was this taken during a solar eclipse over Wrigley?
1990 Bowman Milt Cuyler - Milt obviously never took his mother's advice about his face freezing like that.
1983 O-Pee-Chee Bake McBride - Nice to find an OPC, but GAH! That close up.
1988 Fleer Glenn Hubbard
1988 Fleer Danny Cox
1988 Donruss John Marzano - If I were to count which 2/14 binder card I have the most of, this might be the winner.
1993 O-Pee-Chee World Champions Candy Maldonado - Another insert! And one saluting the Jays' first Wrold Series win as well.
1992 Leaf Glenallen Hill
1998 Pacific Kevin Stocker
1988 Fleer Wayne Tolleson
1992 Leaf Chris Bosio
1986 Donruss Von Hayes
1988 Fleer Mike Fitzgerald
1988 Fleer Pascual Perez
1992 Leaf Mark Whiten
1992 Score Marvin Freeman
1988 Score Darrell Porter - Biggest glasses ever? Or smallest head.
1988 Score Benito Santiago Highlights
1990 Score Hottest 100 Superstars Dwight Evans
2010 Topps Orlanedo Hudson
2010 Topps Jeremy Hermida
2010 Topps Jerry Hariston Jr.
2010 Topps JJ Hardy - The drunkenest card photo ever.
2010 Topps Pat Neshek
2010 Topps Troy Tulowitzki

And now, the packs. You had the standard 2008 UD First Edition, and 2012 Topps S1, 2011 Chrome and 2007 Future Stars. That's an interesting mix for years, at least.
Despite the repetitive nature of finding '08 UD in this, at least there were a couple interesting full-bleed photos.
2012 Topps was pretty bland though, aside from the camo uniformed Padres card.
My only Mets card in this box was this David Wright. I'll take it, since I didn't have this one in my Wright collection.
And the Chrome. Joey Bats!

A decent repack. A few PC guys, and how can I ahte anything that starts off with a Hostess card?


  1. I need to come up to where you are and get myself one of these repacks. It's hard to even wrap my head around the possibility of finding Hostess in a repack. That OPC McBride is fantastic as well.

  2. Hostess and OPC in a repack? Yes please!
