Well - got a rookie of my all time favorite player Robin Ventura, Also got bobby Bo who is a great signer by mail, 2 Mets, a Gator, and a catcher to throw from his knees - great way to start!

Pretty good pack here of people most Mets fans hate. 1) Mike Scott and his damn ball scoffing almost costing us a trip to the world series 2) Barry Bonds - well we all hate him 3) Roger Clemens - another nemesis in 86 - also was originally drafted by the Mets but chose college over the Apple and 4) Lee Mazzelli - we actually don't hate him, but I am pretty sure he laid pipe in my cousin Denise.

Pack 5

Tracy Jones
Charlie O'Brien
Charlie Puleo
Tony Fernandez
Dave Righetti
Ron tingley
Jim Snyder
Trevor Wilson
Carlton Fisk
Brian Holton
Brewers Leaders

Pudge is really the only player of note here - I had a lot of fun with these packs especially since I just started putting together the set.
