Welcome to another stupendous edition of Sox Or No Sox!
As we make our way through the blaster box, we have yet to encounter any White Sox cards in the packs themselves. Could that change today?
Today we have the third and fourth of ten packs of 2007 Topps Series 2. Can we find some White Sox cards? Let’s hope so! There are 6 cards in each pack. You know how to play, let’s begin!
#1: Takashi Saito - 432 – Dodgers
When Eric Gagne fails, Takashi to the rescue!
#2: Jeff Francoeur - 426 – Braves
#3: Octavio Dotel – 478 – Royals
A current White Sox! A step in the right direction.
#4: Mickey Mantle - HR insert – MHR387 - Yankees
A mindless mirror insert! Curse you Topps!
#5: Josh Willingham – 405 – Marlins
He played in Kane County! Cool!
#6: Ryan Church – 469 – Nationals
The fifth card in the 400’s. Curious.
We’re through the first mini pack and no White Sox cards. Should I be surprised? A current White Sox player and a mirror. What can we expect from mini pack #2? It’s not looking good.
#7: Juan Perez - 633 – Pirates
At least the card isn’t in the 400’s.
#8: Kenji Johjima - 344 – Mariners
Nice “oh” face Kenji!
#9: Joe DiMaggio - The Streak – JD17 – Yankees
A mirror card of Joltin’ Joe. At least it’s not another Mantle.
#10: Nick Swisher – Generation Now – GN374 – Athletics
Being a current White Sox doesn’t save you from the mirror card of your former team. Home run number 15, for those of you keeping score.
#11: Checklist – 3 of 3
I hate checklist cards in a pack, unless it features a picture of a player. This doesn't.
#12: Torii Hunter – 388 – Twins
A picture of Mr. Broken Promises running. Take the money and run!
#13: Yuniesky Betancourt
The checklist card didn’t count against me!
Not that bad. But not that great either. ½ point for each card. –1 ½ point for the mirror cards.
Final score: 4 ½ points
No White Sox cards in this game, but there's always next time on Sox Or No Sox.
