Project 2007 Heritage: Volume 2

This is the second part in a series. I'll show you packs 7 through 12 of the 17 2007 Heritage I purchased for $1 a piece last month. Expect to see lots of posed headshots and solid color backgrounds.

Pack 7:

191 - Jonathan Broxton (This is actually a departure from a lot of the cards in this set. You actually get to see some arms here.)
201 - Carlos Lee
398 - Reggie Abercrombie
462 - Joaquin Arias

101 - Miguel Cairo Yellow Name Variation (Look... his name... it's... yellow.)
9 - Craig Wilson
252 - Dennis Sarfate
163 - Armando Benitez

Pack 8:
380 - Clay Hensley

489 - Ichiro Suzuki All-Star (Token Ichiro card.)
164 - Vinny Rottino
426 - Chad Tracy

294 - Miguel Batista (SP) (I'm not sure if it bothers me that a lot of short printed cards in Heritage feature lousy, er, "fringe" players. What would I rather have - a star player card that is hard to chase down and therefore outrageously overpriced or a $5 Miguel Cairo/Batista card?)
343 - Chad Santos (Who? He doesn't have a rookie card logo but he has only minor league status on the back.)
387 - Aaron Rowand
18 - Josh Beckett

Pack 9:
43 - Scott Proctor
313 - Chad Billingsley
259 - Miguel Tejada

332 - Bernie Williams (Bernie! Probably an unnecessarily extreme close-up, though.)

TN9 - Jim Bunning / Anibal Sanchez Then & Now (Is it bad that I already forgot that Anibal Sanchez threw a no-hitter.)
467 - Glen Perkins

187 - Randy Johnson
197 - Khalil Greene

Pack 10:
100 - Jose Contreras
399 - Ricky Nolasco (Another unflattering headshot.)

119 - Victor Martinez
308 - Jon Garland
TN8 - Stan Musial / Travis Hafner Then & Now (Nice card, but I know I have at least one more of these.)
250 - Alfonso Soriano
323 - Lance Berkman
367 - Jose Diaz (Another guy I've never heard of, but at least he has a rookie logo.)

Pack 11:
322 - Josh Willingham
359 - Bobby Jenks
51 - Livan Hernandez (Any Livan Hernandez player collectors out there?)
52 - Jason Bay (Everyone's favorite Canadian free agent.)

65 - Chris Narveson Yellow Name Variation (Another "yellow name" card. I got to see his first major league start and he finally started logging some meaningful innings as a Brewer last year.)
89 - Orlando Hudson (If he leaves the Dodgers, does it mean we'll never hear Vin Scully call him The O-Dog again?)
424 - Grady Sizemore

54 - Kevin Reese (Who is this guy? I've never heard of him, either, and he's another guy with only minor league stats and no rookie logo.)

Pack 12:
300 - Scott Schoeneweis
372 - Carlos Zambrano (is a chump is the end of that sentence.)

64 - Tim Hudson
23 - Mark Kotsay (SP)
MHRC18 - Mickey Mantle Home Run Champion 18 (Doesn't everyone miss the Mickey Mantle inserts?)
286 - Cory Sullivan
34 - Mark DeRosa (I'd like to see DeRosa back in St. Louis as a utility player, but there's no way he'll get utility player money.)

458 - Adam Lind (Hilarious photo! This one is begging for a caption contest.)
