This should be fun.

(Just one small little point of correction, the A-Rod road to 500 cards were from 2007 not 2008. It's not official if there is an error in the seeding!)

Notable gimmicks that must have lost in the play off games:
2007 U&H "left-handed" Joba Chamberlain
2007 U/D SP Authentic Ex-Rod variations - Red Sox, Angles, Mets, Dodgers, and Cubs

Trent, the Joba and Ex-Rod cards must have been on-the-bubble.
