2004 Yak Pack


     Hey again all. Today I have kind of an odd pack to feature here on the Pack Rip Cafe. It is called a Yak Pack. These were repacks of cards from assorted years and brands. It appears they were used to promote a calling service for long distance company. Also featured is Rollie Fingers on the wrapper to promote a contest inside to win a trip to the World Series with him in 2004. That is the only reference to a year so I am assuming that is when they were released. I am not sure if other players were featured as well.

2004 Yak Pack

1982 Topps #726 Amos Otis (Royals)
1991 Score #369 Jeff McKnight (Orioles)
1998 Leaf #126 Darryl Kile (Astros)

Amos Otis had a nice career with the Royals. I like the design on the 98 Leaf.


1984 Topps #259 Sparkey Anderson (Tigers)
1982 Topps K-Mart #24 of 44 Pete Rose (Reds)
1981 Fleer #112 Don Sutton (Dodgers)
1984 Topps #441 Bob Lillis (Astros)

2 cool manager cards and a Rose fit into my collecting goals and Sutton was one of the underated greats.

For some reason they made the wrapper much taller then the cards.


Here are the contest / adds inside the pack.

FINAL OVERALL RATING:  Single. 3 of 7 keepers with a good player selection make this pack a hit. I didn't know this was a repack since it was behind the glass of the Vend-O-Pack machine so I am glad they at least had some good players inside.


Thanks for Reading!
