Pat sent me 24 cards. Fortunately (or unfortunately) four of the cards were shit cards. This means that all other 20 cards will count.
Shit cards: Four 2008 Upper Deck First Edition Green StarQuests
While StarQuests are the shit, only real StarQuests count in this contest.
Card #1 & #2 Two 1991 Donruss commons.
These cards were on the top and bottom of the stack, and the intent was to use these Mike Fitzgerald and Tim Belcher cards as filler. Fair enough, but I already have both of these. (Zero Points)
Cards #3-#6 Four 1993 Score commons.
These cards of Delino DeShields, Greg Vaughn, Donovan Osborne, and Eric Wedge are ones that I actually need. (Four Points)
Card #7 2001 Topps Noteworthy Mike Piazza
Card #8 2001 Topps Before There Was Topps Babe Ruth
2001 Topps was probably the last really good Topps flagship set. (10 Points)
Card #9 2001 Upper Deck The Franchise A-ROD
A-ROD was indeed the Rangers' franchise player in '01. (Five Points)
Card #10 2002 Topps Mike Rivera
An indistinguishable base card of an indistinguished "Prospect." (One Point)
Card #11 2003 Upper Deck John Lackey
Whoops! I already have this card! (Zero Points)
Card #12 2003 Topps Record Breaker series one Ron Guidry
Card #13 2006 Topps Own the Game Chad Cordero
Well, they are on my wantlist! (10 Points)
Card #14 2006 Upper Deck Team Pride David Ortiz
You know what really pisses me off? Insert cards that aren't sequentially numbered, but rather have the player's initials on the back. (Five Points)
Card #15 2008 Topps Campaign '08 Fred Thompson
I don't think there's ever been a Presidential candidate who's wanted the White House less, than Thompson. (Five Points)
Cards #16-#18 Three 2008 Topps Own the Game
Cards of Matt Holliday, Prince Fielder, and Carlos Lee star in this annual Topps insert staple. (15 Points)
Cards #19 & #20 2008 Upper Deck StarQuest Ken Griffey, Jr. and Vladimir Guerrero
The only real StarQuests are the one in the real Upper Deck baseball. (10 Points + 10 Bonus Points)
Final Score: 75 Points
