I want to apologize as it's been a few days since the last post. I was celebrating a birthday last weekend and, well, things got a little crazy. So I'm back with pack #2 of the amazingly B.A. Metal Universe box break. For the record, I can't wait to get my hands on some more of this stuff... it keeps me young.
Here we go...
74 Edgar Martinez (DH) with the Space Needle appropriately located in the background
193 Gary Sheffield rounding the bases, errr check that... enjoying the sights in the MIA
11 Bernie Williams with a flexed bat... on a FREAKING FRONT-LOADER! God, I love this stuff. Have I mentioned that yet?
87 Tony WHOA-mack... yeah, that's a Cessna in the background
22 Bobby Bonilla sans batting gloves accompanied by the Seven Mile Bridge
182 Alan Benes is literally out of this world
115 Jeff King and his epic mustache caught on the tracks
59 Tom Glavine's not out of the woods yet
Aside from the general awesomeness of this set, one of my favorite aspects can be seen when comparing the Edgar Martinez card to Glavine's card in this pack. Martinez is featured in front of a prominent Seattle landmark while Glavine looks like an 'Other' trying to defend the Dharma Initiative and its cause rather than pitching for Atlanta, a town not known for its natural landscapes. All the more reason to love this set.
Check back tomorrow for pack #3!
