Wax Pack: One Man’s Road Trip to Track Down Every Player From a Pack of Baseball Cards

...the pack he chose from to form his road trip included former Toronto Blue Jay Rance Mulliniks, Al Cowens, Garry Templeton, Randy Ready, Gary Pettis, Jaime Cocanower, Don Carman, Vince Coleman, Dwight Gooden, Lee Mazzilli, Richie Hebner, Carlton Fisk, Steve Yeager and Rick Sutcliffe.

In such a random sample size of players from this particular baseball pack, there was a separation between players who were swallowed up by fame, fortune and controversy, and others who simply receded to the background after their playing career, not stuck in some perpetual baseball bubble.
