Woo Hoo! First card of the first pack of the season and we pull a Ranger. That right there means they'll win the pennant at least, I just know it. What else can it mean? I like Chris Davis a lot, I just hope he has a better year than he did last year. Not sure if I've ever seen anyone wearing eye black and sunglasses before. Maybe I just don't pay enough attention.
Here are the rest of the base cards in the pack. I know many people out there don't particularly care for this year's design, but I like it a lot. The only small gripe I have is that the team names seem a little too large in some cases, I think just using the logos would have been better.
We got a couple of inserts as well, including one of current Rangers President Nolan Ryan. Another Ranger! That's got to mean a trip to the World Series right? Two current Rangers in the first pack of the season, what's the deal? I like the Toppstown cards better this year than last, though they don't have the large team logos in the background like I remember on the previews. Which brings us to the last card of the pack. (It wasn't really last, but I had to add a little drama.)
What the heck? Another Ranger? Yes, sir. Turkey Red Ian Kinsler means the Rangers will for sure win the World Series this year. I'm not sure I should open anymore packs this season, I don't want to jinx them after all. I know Brian will back me up when I say this is a great start to what will hopefully be a great season for the Rangers. Good luck to the rest of you cheering for your favorite teams, but watch out for Texas! Opening day can't get here soon enough. Later.
