Retro Box Break: 1997 Select - Mo Packs, Mo Rippin'

Four more packs of '97 Select. But first the music, this time it's some 1997 hip-hop:





When this song hit #1 on the Billboard charts, it made Biggie the first musical artist in history to have two #1 singles released posthumously. RIP Biggie

Onto the cards:



Pretty sweet that I got 3 Braves cards out of four packs including another short print with the Kenny Lofton Blue card.  Plus I got a Jermaine Dye Rookie Revolution insert (card on right).  Since those inserts only fall once every 54 packs, I feel pretty lucky pulling one in this box and even luckier that it turned out to be a Braves card to add to my binders.  Sweet stuff.

Now for the recap of the rest:
