Pulled a Nice One!

I'm pretty much done buying new unopened cards, but I don't mind dropping a few bucks here and there for a pack. Last week, I paid a visit to my Local Card Shop to get a few top loaders and penny sleeves and decided to buy a pack of Gypsy Queen, which was marked down to two bucks. Do you think I'll make my money back? Anyone want to trade a 1973 Schmidt for it? (Yeah, I know. I won't get THAT much for it.)

Before my family moved to Georgia and I became a Braves fan, my two favorite teams were the Expos and the Phillies. Schmidt was always near the top of my personal favorites. One of the all-time great power hitters and pretty nifty with the glove as well. He was the best player ever to play third base. (The second best is just now finishing up his last season.)

What were the odds for those Printing Plates?

Colbey -- There doesn't appear to be any printed odds on printing plates.
