Baseball cards from Dave and Buster's

This past Saturday we celebrated my brother-in-law's birthday at Dave and Buster's. For those of you not familiar with Dave and Buster's, it's a video arcade for grown-ups. You can earn tickets and redeem for prizes. One of the prizes I got was a World's Greatest Card Chase pack, which included 3 packs and 1 autographed card. Unfortunately I didn't get the 1933 Goudey Ruth or the Mickey Mantle bat piece advertised on the packaging, but I wasn't expecting either of them,so that's okay.

I got a pack of 2008 Upper Deck First Edition and got this A-Rod Starquest card.

In a pack of 2009 Tristar Obak, I got this Steve Dalkowski mini. I picked this card because it's a mini and on the back it said that Dalkowski threw 110 mph.

My third and final pack was 2008 Tristar Prospects Plus. I didn't get anyone that I had heard of, so I picked this card of Evan Fredrickson because he was the highest draft pick out of all the cards in the pack.

My autograph was 2009 Tristar Obak Lonnie Chisenhall auto.


  1. I must get to Dave's! I love arcades!

  2. Nice timely hit on the Chisenhall. He was just a well-regarded prospect in 2009, but now he is on the verge of cracking the majors and is the top prospect of the organization.

  3. Chisenhall is real close to being called up.
