182 Packs of Baseball - 008

Okay, folks, today's pack-busting goodness comes from the 1996 Leaf Hobby Set.  Put your way-back hats on and let's see if you remember any of these guys.  Heck, some of them may still be playing.  And, some, we've never heard of, I'm sure.  Maybe not. Let's find out:

Dante Bichette - Rockies
Javy Lopez - Braves
Rick Aguilera - Twins
David Bell - Cardinals

 Jason Schmidt - Gold Leaf Rookie - Braves
Alex Fernandez - White Sox
Alex Rodriguez - Mariners

Alan Benes - Gold Leaf Rookie - Cardinals
Dean Palmer - Angels
Greg Maddux - Braves
Cliff Floyd - Expos

Each day of the regular baseball season, I am busting open a pack of baseball cards. These are packs that I have laying around and/or that I have purchased recently on a whim. I list the cards in the pack and scan in some of them. I shoot for 9 cards, but sometimes I may scan more, other times fewer. It all depends on how things hit me in that particular pack. Oh yes, there will be duplication. I have a TON of packs from certain brands/years. I will, however, try to mix things up throughout the season.

For those keeping score, I know there are not actually 182 GAMEDAYS in the 2012 season. I am counting ALL the days between Opening Day and the last day of the regular season. Frankly, it's easier that way. Thanks for playing along.
