182 Packs of Baseball - 014

Two weeks into the baseball season already!  We still have a LONG way to go!  Let's all "Be Strong. Don't Use Drugs."  That is advice right off the back of today's pack: 1997 Pinnacle Hobby.

Mark Thompson - Rockies
Osvaldo Fernandez - Giants
Todd Greene - Angels

Todd Walker - Twins
Ugueth Urbina - Expos
Roger Clemens - Red Sox

Curt Schilling - Phillies
Juan Gonzalez - Rangers
Bill Swift - Rockies
Kevin Mitchell - Reds

Umm, wait a minute.  The last pack of these I opened had Schilling, Gonzalez, and Swift in it.  In the SAME ORDER!  Talk about your poor collation! Ouch.

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.

Also, you are welcome to claim teams/players (Max 3 total). Rules are at the following:


  1. If you could scan the "Don't use Drugs mmmkay?" slogan on the back of that wrapper for me I would be deeply grateful!

    1. Umm, well, I don't have the mmmkay version, but sure... It'll be up later tonight (Wed, Apr 18)
