Janary 2010 Pull of the Month

Each month I am going to try and post my pull of the month. This is in hope of posting a pull of the year at the end of 2010. I only openned 1 pack this months so pickings are pretty slim - but this ended up being a pretty solid pull:

2009 Topps T206 #138 mini Elvis Andrus (SP)
2009 Topps T206 #138 mini Elvis Andrus

The card on the left is the pull the 2nd Andrus is informational. For more background on these click here.

Of course with a Pull of the Month, one should have a a Meh of the Month for a weak card pulled:

2009 Topps T206 #26 Chien-Ming Wang

This isn't that bad a card - I actually like the shades in what appears to be a great sunset look. My complaint is in a 350 card set that came out at the END OF THE YEAR why is Wang one of the players featured from the World Champs.

I am not really a Yankees expert, but I think Topps could have found a better rep than somebody who did not contributed to the Yanks post-season and went 1-6 with a 9.64 ERA during the regular season.

I love this idea - a great way to recap (especially at the end of the year) a baseball card "season"... If I could remember what I bought/opened this month I might want to borrow this idea too!

definitely borrow it - I would love to see what happens with other folks pack purchasing experience.

sometimes we forget at the end of the year what we picked up at the beginning.
