469 Frank Thomas (sp)

one stinkin' met, No Phils, not even any ex-phils. The Short Print is a pretty good one in Frank Thomas - it would have been cute had Topps given Frank the same card as the original Frank Thomas (#490). Lots of Home Runs in this pack - If I am not mistaken there are 1900 of them in an 8 card pack that includes a relief pitcher and some kid that wasn't even born till 1985. Jeff Kent has 365 of them and he ranks 3rd in the Pack.

Its a fun first pack of the year. look forward to getting a box of this eventually. This pack went for $3.17 (including Tax) at a KB Toy Store. Gift to myself for spending a day w/ my GF while she went shopping.

And it is the first Heritage pack that I have used to contribute to my 1959 Topps/2008 Heritage Virtual Set, where I am trying to collect the lower 506 cards using either a 1959 card or a 2008 Heritage card. Five of the eight cards happened to make the cut, and the Frank Thomas has maded it into the book because I have the original '59 card (Banks Highlight) in a toploader for display.
