My first packs of 2008 Topps Series 2

I bought 4 Value packs from Wal-Mart today of Series 2
I pulled this 2008 Topps GOLD Twins CRAIG MONROE Card!
The back of the card says: The Twins are confident Craig can return to his power-hitting form of 2006, when he led the Tigers in Home runs, then swatted five more in postseason. He is capable at all three outfield positions.
I like to read the back of cards, then see how real life turned. In real life when the Twins acquired outfielder Craig Monroe in the offseason, they asked the former starter for the Tigers to adjust to life on the bench as a pinch-hitter and occasional bat against left-handers. As of June the 19th Monroe is only hitting .208 in 120 at-bats.
In the 144 cards I pulled ,I also found 4 Royals cards. Yeah!!!!!!!!!
I must also add this is my "100th POST"
