My first mailer of the year goes back to last year, and the Secret Santa over at TCDB organized by vroomed.
And what else was in there?
Looks like I can say I've pulled a 1989 Traded Griffey out of a repack. While I know the design was used throughout the set, the blurry design on the side of the Lofton really does a nice job of emphasizing his speed. Jim Negrych looks like he's holding the bat for the first time in his life. Not the most flattering pose.
Mets content! Also, this becomes a Benito Santiago hot pack on the basis of that OPC entry. Even though it doesn't go all over the card like Contenders, I still like the Authentix design. The Chipper Jones also brings some Mike Piazza content for a play at the plate.
Here's the hit! And a piece of something that may or may not have resulted in actual hits.
Jupiter Hammerheads content! Any minor league content is always a pleasant surprise. Chad never reached the bigs, and was last heard of when he got a 100 game banned substance suspension in 2015.
And your hit! Meyers never reached the bigs, but he's Canadian, so this hit becomes a new card in that PC. On-card auto too!
Not the most spectacular ending, but every repack has to end with someone.
And there you have it! Thanks so much for all the goodies. It was fun busting some cards on 12/25, especially when they were of the repacked variety!
