182 Packs of Baseball - 023

Thanks for reading and/or playing along during this journey through an entire baseball season's worth of pack busting!  I appreciate everyone's comments, insights, and thoughts.

Today, the magic box of packs gives forth a pack of 1986 Donruss Major League All-Stars oversized cards, pop-up and Hank Aaron puzzle pieces.

Hank Aaron Puzzle - Braves - 25, 26, 27
Steve Garvey - Padres
Willie Hernandez - Tigers
Jose Cruz - Astros
Bert Blyleven - Indians - WAHOO!! A Triber!  And, I need this one! But, the next ones of these (should there be any) goes into the pool for Tribe collectors.

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. it's always cool to bust open an old pack and find a card you need.

  2. The 1984 oversized set is one of my favorite sets ever.
