182 Packs of Baseball - 019

Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you Day 19 of the 2012 regular baseball season.  Today's pack of cards comes from the 1996 Leaf Hobby Set. I think I need to find some Regular Set issues so I can see what the difference is between Hobby and Regular.  I can tell, these hobby cards sure are shiny!

Sammy Sosa - Cubs
Billy Ashley - Dodgers
Jeff Conin - Marlins
Travis Fryman - Tigers
Bret Boone - Reds
Chris Snopek - White Sox

Hal Morris - Reds
Jason Isringhausen - Mets
Ken Griffey, Jr - Mariners
Roberto Alomar - Blue Jays
Derek Bell - Astros
Dennis Eckersley - A's

Wow! Nice collection of folks that are (or will be) HOFers mixed in there!  Congrats to those of you that added cards to your collection from this pack!

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:
