Chestnuts Roasting On A Fire Sale Repackage

Fire Sale

15 packs for $9.99...that's .67 a pack...I'll highlight one card per pack because almost all of this is filler:


Pack 1: Topps 2007 Opening Day

I didn't realize that the mascots had cards in the set and I might just have to start tracking these down.

Pack 7: Topps 2005 Updates & Highlights

I think I am going to get my Biggio collection together...I hadn't seen this card before getting it here.  I love these odd records.

Three packs and I pulled two of the rookies I was looking for!  I included a trading places insert because I really enjoy them and especially when the two photos of the player look nothing alike.

Nice. At least you managed to find some cheap cards, even if they were a bit on the dull side. I haven't seen baseball packs for less than a buck in ages.
