Contest reminder...and my first pack of 2011 Heritage

Now that I got that out of the way, on to my first pack of 2011 Topps Heritage.

316 Joe Mauer "Mauer Sends One Into Orbit"
19 Jake McGee RC
79 Jordan Zimmerman
334 Tampa Bay Rays
229 Pedro Ciriaco RC
488 Koji Uehara SP
192 Florida Marlins
283 Danny Valencia
393 Hanley Ramirez All-Star
261 Reid Brignac
230 Francisco Liriano

Damn right, my 9 card pack yielded 11 cards.  I figured I'd scan all the cards that weren't standard veteran base cards, and that turned out to be most of the pack:

The team cards look great as do the multi-shot action cards.  I don't really get the point of the 75 short prints, but that's the way things go these days I guess.  I prefer last year's All-Star cards, but these aren't bad.  I understand that they are trying to be authentic, but have the RC logo AND the 2011 Rookie Star is kinda dumb.  I also picked up two of the Value Packs from Target that have 3 packs and 3 bonus black border cards, but I'll save those for later.  I have no intention of going after this set, so these cards are available for trade once you all get your fill of ripping packs.

Don't forget, go here to find out how to vote in the bracket contest finals and earn yourself a chance to win something.

Damn... Those look nice. If I finish 2nd place in the contest, could that Hanley card be part of my package?
