3Bros Baseball Pack

3Bros Baseball:  I was familiar with 3Bros but this is the first time I've seen any of their packs in the wild.  I picked up four from Dollar Tree for some fun.  You won't get rich off them but you might find some cards that surprise you.  This one starts off with Hall of Famer Dave Winfield.
I'll show off the packs in individual posts.  Each pack has 10 cards ranging from the 80s to today.  Half the cards from this pack was from the 90s.  I do enjoy old Upper Deck and I always liked that design on the Morandini card.  I think the Electric Diamonds were a parallel but I'll admit that while I remember them I don't have anymore information on them.
A couple of Fleer offerings.  Each pack comes with a sticker.  I think the price on these packs were $1.  Seems like I had 10 cents per card in my head.
Who had more Manager of the Year awards?  Yep - Lou Piniella 3-2.  Who woulda thunk?
What the packs look like.  The 3Bros website offers a wide variety of options for purchasing cards.  Baseball, football, basketball, hockey, college, non-sport.  Packs, boxes, unopened original packs.  Even autos are included in some.  Just have to know you won't be getting top shelf cards.  I'm still intrigued and I might grab a box from them at some point. 
These are  fun and cheap.  Not sure I'll pick up more given the chance but I wouldn't bet against it either.  Curt Schilling is still not a Hall of Fame member but you have to think he would be in by now had he not shot himself in the foot.  Multiple times. 

BREAKDOWN: 
10 – Total Cards
5 – Cards from the 90s

  1. Not bad.

    Haven't seen baseball cards in my local Dollar Trees since the Before Times. Used to get larger repacks there.

  2. I never heard of these, but I would probably buy a couple packs just to open something. My Dollar Tree hasn't had sports cards in about 5 years, so I hope they get these. It will be fun to find.

    1. Mine was good at having stickers and some smaller card packs from the various sports until about two years ago. This was a fun surprise.

  3. I used to love the 30 card dollar tree repacks. I'll have to check to see if mine has any of these.

  4. Holy cow. Winfield looks like a giant compared to McGwire in that photo. A repack with an 80's box set card and a 90's parallel is a winner in my book.

    1. He does and that isn't an easy thing to do. I'm good with it.

  5. I heard about these on the Twitter, but haven't seen any in person yet. I'm not sure if I would buy any even if I did find them though, I guess I'll find out the answer to that when and if I ever happen upon them.

    1. I'm usually the same way. When I see them I'll know what to do then.
