Retro Box Break: 1997 Select - The Finale, Give me a Hand

Finally finishing off the box of '97 Select




Watch the video if you're wondering about the "Hand" reference, plus its a great song (just a strange video).

The final 6 packs after the jump:


Three more Braves cards heading to my collection.  Of course Glavine and Lopez are recognizable Braves but I had to look up Bobby Smith as I don't remember him at all.  Smith was drafted by the Braves in 1992 but never played in a MLB game with the Braves before being drafted by Tampa Bay in 1997 Expansion Draft.  He played in 258 MLB games with the Rays (1998-2002) before retiring in 2006.  With the addition of these 3 cards, I have received 11 Braves cards in total from this box.


Then there was the rest:
