1993 Duracell cello pack

I stopped in to Don's Sportcards here in Anchorage a few weeks ago, yeah I'm that behind, and  while I was just going to pick up a few cheap cards off his drop board I ended up spending a lot more than I planned on.  Don had just bought a huge collection and had some pretty awesome Brett Favres.  I ended up picking up the a bunch of the more unique and interesting cards, but this post isn't about those Favres this is about the awesome Yount pick up I found.  While Don was pricing out all those great Favre cards and giving them to me at 60% book value I walked around and found a few unopened packs of Duracell cards.  Now I already have Yount's Duracell card it looks like this...

But I had never seen the cello packs the cards came in.

So for a buck I also got the Durcell cards of Gooden, Baerga and Gwynn.

And Mr Yount was right there on the back.  Pretty neat.  These cards came with the Super Saver packs of Durcell way back in 1993.  

I also picked up another pack with Frank Thomas in it for my Thomas collection.

Yount Archived! 2013 Archives parallel.

I've been insanely busy lately and, well, not only has my blogging dropped to a trickle, so has my card collecting.  But Robin has a bunch of new cards available in this year's Tribute, Museum Collection and Archives from Topps.  The first new addition I acquired in passing is his foil parallel card.  I haven't even opened a pack of this stuff and I'm not sure if I'm going to, but I will be collecting the Brewers from this set and of course all the Younts I can get my hands on.  Besides the base and this foil parallel, I know there is at least one more parallel to be had and that's the Day Glow parallel.
