Thoughts: Well, reaching a hundo on four packs is nothing to sniff at, though I hear Joe has been on fire with his rips and is likely destroying me yet again this week. I am still pretty casi-casi on the base cards, but I continue to pull some nice CYMTO as well as am warming up to the Legendary Lineage cards. I really like the pairings and the design is pretty slick. A card like this would never work if Upper Deck were running the show. They would design a card with two random players like Bob Gibson and Prince Fielder, Or Ozzie Smith and Justin Verlander. Just would not make a lick o sense. I like em. More to come on Saturday.
