Anything Worth Mentioning?: A Fairfield Repackage Rack Pack

In this series, I cut through the crap and only show you the cards worth mentioning.

I enjoy these rack pack repackages because they promise a few vintage cards and I'm never been shorted on that front.  If you happen to not get any stars or semi-stars you can typically count on getting an old ball late-60's card.  This time around I got my semi-star card which turned out to be a 1974 Topps George Foster. This is the fourth year card of one of the last non-steroid players to hit more than 50 home runs in a season.

My packs also came with an inserted autograph.  The packs says that one in eight packs has a memorabilia card and there are no stated odds to pull an autograph so I imagine they are just lumped in with the memorabilia card odds.  Brian Stokes was a prospect for the Rays and also pitched for the Mets and Angels.  He retired from baseball after the 2011 season after five seasons in the majors.

All in all not a very bad repackage at all.
