The Jared Hughes wasn't the only card that made me happy while opening up the box though. I also got this retired numbers card of one of my favorite players as a kid, Frank Thomas. The Big Hurt was incredible early into his career. After the Pirates started to fall apart post the free agency of Barry Bonds, Bobby Bonilla, and Doug Drabek, I started to root for the White Sox and the hot corner duo of Frank Thomas and Robin Ventura. To this day, the ChiSox are a close 2nd in terms of my favorite team.
Here's some of the other gems of the blaster
all cards except the JP Arencibia and 87minis are available for trade.
If anyone is looking for base, please let me know. I am looking to unload all my nonPirates for practically nothing.
