The First Topps Heritage Pack Of 2009

OK, I broke down and actually bought a pack of 2009 Topps Heritage. I have yet to complete the 2008 set. I don't have any intentions of collecting anything but the White Sox cards out of the 2009 set, but I feel compelled to purchase a pack.

I don't have to feel guilty about it though because I found a White Sox card in my first, and so far only pack of 2009 Heritage.

Rather than play Sox Or No Sox today, I'll just post the results of the pack here. It will show the great lengths the pack gods went to tease and belittle me.

Card 1: 207 - Aubrey Huff - Orioles
Aubrey was once coveted by the White Sox GM. Alas, it was never meant to be.

Card 2: 253 - Alex Cintron - Orioles
Alex Cintron gets a card!! A former backup utility player for the White Sox.

Card 3: 317 - Joey Votto - Reds
I know a few people who would like this card. It also mentions him hitting 3 homers against the Cubs. I know who this will be earmarked for.

Card 4: 408 - Carlos Lee - Astros
Another former White Sox!! If the Sox didn't get rid of him, there would be no World Series championship in 2005.

Card 5: 367 - David DeJesus - Royals
He's a Royal. He's been rumored to be on Kenny Williams radar. He will be in a White Sox uniform after his prime.

Card 6: 316 - Wilson Betemit - White Sox
Woo hoo!! A White Sox card!! A card of a newly acquired player who may not make the Opening Day roster. Um... woo hoo!!

Card 7: 136 - Matt Tuiasosopo - Mariners
I don't even want to tell you the vile and disgusting things that immediately popped into my head while trying to sound out that last name. He got a double off of Andy Pettitte for his first hit. Not bad!

Card 8: 99 - Lastings Milledge - Nationals
Lastings led the Nationals in home runs, RBI and stolen bases last year. 14, 61 and 24, respectively, if you were curious. You know you were.

Not a single short print or gimmick card. I did get a White Sox card, so I'm happy. I bought the pack at Target, so I'm bummed I didn't get a Mayo card, but what are you gonna do about it?

I just issued my "no Heritage set for me" post. You and Thorzul get some of the credit.

I'll be doing what you're doing, getting a pack here and there, and collecting my favorite team. That's it.
