2008 Milestones & Moments

Or as I like to call this set, 2008 Chaos & Confusion.

These cards are my winnings from Community Gum's Pack Lottery Contest.  I didn't understand the contest and I don't understand these cards.

I like the cards.  They've got a classy look to them.  Not fleur-de-lis, but close.

And I like the selection of players that I won.  But I don't understand them.  Prince Albert had 129 Runs in 2005.  I get that.  And the cards are numbered to 150.  I get that.  But there's 129 different versions of this card?  That I don't get.

Ryan Zimmerman.  One of the stars of the Washington Nationals.  Now, if the Nats could just gel, they might have a run at the Phils.  Or maybe the rest of the NL East could cut their payroll and Florida and Washington could catch a break.

Topps really got a lot of mileage out of this set.  Same back for each of these Zimmerman cards.  I'm assuming that it is the same for all the others. And I have no idea how to enter these cards into the Zistle database.  None.

So, thanks, Jon at Community Gum, for the cards.  Next time please send a roadmap.
