182 Packs of Baseball - 022

Okay, folks, step right up!  Today's pack comes to us from 2007, back when Upper Deck could legally produce MLB-authorized baseball cards.  Remember those days?  No?  Well, I do.

At any rate, we're looking at 2007 Upper Deck UD Masterpieces today!

Bucky Dent - Yankees
Miguel Cabrera - Marlins
Albert Pujols - Cardinals
Roy Campanella - Dodgers

Wow, that's it... Four cards per pack, eh? Glad I did not pay full retail for those puppies!  The cards themselves are great - it's the cost-per that gets me.

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.
