big fun game - post 15: big red Foster for Wes; Turrdog, it's your turn, dog

Wes, still reeling from the theft of his customs lot, took a chance on #14...

It's a 2003 Topps Retired auto of George Foster, the only player to hit 50 home runs in a season between 1966 and 1989.

Bad news is there's a price sticker on the back of the case ($50?! No way!), but it could probably be removed with some work. Bonus cards included in this prize are autos from a couple cooks (David Cook and Chris Cook.. no relation, I assume), as well as a couple shiny Gold Label cards and a couple customs.

Next up to pick is a mysterious contestant from parts unknown: The Turrdog. I think he's the only player of the game I haven't traded with before. (It also means I don't have his email address, so I can't send him a heads-up that it's his turn. Hopefully he sees this post soon!)
What's it gonna be, dog? Steal something or pick 8, 10, or 11.
