Bracket Round 1 Group 6

I just posted the fifth round a little while ago, so let's go ahead and throw out round 6 as well.

#10 2008 Stadium Club 2 Packs (Rhubarb Runner):
  Pack 1:
  23 Tom Glavine
  142 Greg Smith RC
  74 Rich Harden
  38 Hunter Pence
  51 Ichiro First Day Issue
  Pack 2:
  52 Vernon Wells
  88 Hideki Matsui
  14 Prince Fielder
  131 Sean Rodriguez RC
  150 Gregorio Petit RC First Day Issue
>>> The first pack yielded a great Ichiro, which was about as good as it got.  The photography on these cards is great though.  I mean, the second pack had a diving catch (with ball in flight), a bunt, a baserunner, a nice closeup of a Prince's batting stance, and a dude turning a DP.  That's just great variety right there.

#23 1994 Stadium Club Draft Picks Pack (CalJr3000):
  Greg Morris, Ricky Stone, Wes Helms, Scott Shores, Roy Marsh, Roy Marsh, Roy Marsh, Ramon Castro, Jayson Peterson, Mike Thurman, Dustin Hermanson, Doug Million
>>> That's right, the last picked pack that fell to CalJr3000 is a complete dud, including three Roy Marsh's.  Roy never made it past A+ ball, so this pack isn't exactly going to pay the bills. 

#7 2010 Topps Magic Football (82 Redbirds):
  Dwayne Bowe,
  Beanie Wells,
  DJ Williams,
  Darrelle Revis,
  Jahvid Best RC,
  Malcolm Jenkins Mini
>>> These cards are sweet looking, but the Best RC saved an otherwise boring pack. 

Wild Card 2: 2010 Score Football 2 Packs (Fuji):
  Pack 1: Steve Breaston, Torry Holt, Marques Colston, Trent Cole, Andre Roberts Hot Rookies, Toby Gerhart RC, Daryl Washington RC Glossy
  Pack 2: Bernard Scott, Michael Jenkins, Matt Cassel, Derrick Ward, Jerricho Cotchery, Sean Canfield RC, Aaron Hernandez RC Glossy
>>> Does anyone get excited by Score Football these days? Sure the price is great, but the design is like something I made in Paintbrush on our old HP in 1990, when I was 6.  Best card? Hernandez Glossy, I guess.

I'm sorry for making you vote on these four packs.
