It Sounds like package from White Sox Cards!

So today I got my prize from being the big Weiner in one of White Sox Cards recent giveaways.
First up - the prize received is 2 1982 Topps cards. One of Chet Lemon and the other of Greg Luzinski looking like he is playing in a bear league at the age of 61. Seriously - looking back at some of these old cards, its hard to imagine that some of these dudes were athletes.
Next up is a David Wright card from 2008 upper Deck X that goes wright to my Wright pile (sometimes I hate myself) and a 2007 Deolis Guerra bowman Heritage Prospects card. I was sad to see Deolis go in the Johan Santana deal just because I'd heard a great deal of hype about him and was hoping to see him come through Binghamton - but he sucked like Chloe Sevegny in the Brown Bunny (if you know what I mean) so I guess I didn't miss too much. But who knows, the dude is young and throws gas. Good luck to him.
The last 2 cards are a 2008 Topps Stadium Club Nolan Ryan and a 2008 Topps Chrome Refractor/Meth OD card. I love the Ryan as I am a big fan of the rebirth of Topps Stadium club - while the short checklist is one of the the things I like about this set - I would have liked to see it expand a bit - Maybe 100 current players, 50 rookies, and 50 Legends - I think that would have been nice - what do you think?
Finally, I always think I hate chrome cards. but then I get one. I always think refracters are kinda weak. Then I get one. Sometimes I think its a bad idea to do too many hallucinogens and look at baseball cards - then I realize its supposed to look this way. and I like it.

And now finally - there was one last special present in the case in form of a mix cd from our good friend. Now, I am not as dedicated as he is so you wont see a full track list here - Just will let you know there were some truly bitchin' tunes here. Great songs from the Beastie Boys, Butthole Surfers (Pasture of Muppets is the greatest album title ever), Breeders, Flaming Lips, Nirvana (sweet B Side from the Teen Spirit single I believe), Pearl Jame, L7, REM and Willy Shatner. My sister loves the Shatner cds so I was an old hand to this, but its still a fun listen non-the-less.

So thank you to Steve - everyone be sure to check out his blogs White Sox Cards and his tunes site The Soundtrack of my Life

I'm just curious if you figured out ALL of the songs on the CD.

Glad you enjoyed everything!
