Sox Or No Sox WSC Edition: 1-28-08

Welcome to the White Sox Cards edition of Sox Or No Sox!

We’ve been close 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 fifth and sixth 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: Juan Morillo - 647 – Rockies
He’s got a top-shelf arm according to Clint Hurdle.

#2: Kevin Millar - 408 – Orioles
A Kevin who’s on the Orioles. It boggles the mind.

#3: Shin-Soo Choo – 343 – Indians
All aboard for the Shin-Soo Choo express!

#4: Jim Leyland – 610 - Tigers
Jim's looking like a hungry vampire in this shot. “Hi there, don’t you look tasty!”
#5: Brian McCann – 335 – Braves
A kindred sounding board in Jeff Francoeur? More vampires?

#6: Jhonny Peralta – 465 – Indians
A ncie Idnian palyer, woh seplls hsi nmae srtange.

We’re through the first mini pack and no White Sox cards. A reverse vampire and more kindred. A train and a player with dyslexia. Interesting mix and a terrible disability.

#7: Fredi Gonzalez - 616 – Marlins
Ooo! A manager card.

#8: David Wells - 471 – Padres
I remember a show about a dog named Boomer. I wonder if that’s where this ex-White Sox player gets his nickname.

#9: Milwaukee Brewers – 454 – Brewers
They made a good run against the Cubs last year. I was in Rhinelander, Wisconsin in September and the bars still had baseball on. It was nice to see.

#10: Xavier Nady – 473 – Pirates
He went 4 for 4 on Opening Day 2006.

#11: Willy Aybar – 586 – Braves
He certainly has a long history in the minors!

#12: Jeff Weaver – 420 - Mariners
Red snapper! Very tasty, Weaver. You’ll take the box! Let’s see what he gets! Nothing! Absolutely nothing! No White Sox cards!

Not that bad. But not that great either. ½ point for each card. Nothing more, nothing less. At least there are no trap cards.

Final score: 6 points

No White Sox cards in this game, but there's always next time on Sox Or No Sox.
