182 Packs of Baseball - 024

Twenty-four days of baseball.  That is basically 13% of the season already in the past.  That also means we have a LOT more baseball ahead of us!  Let's get crackin'.

Today, we've got 1991 Studio featuring Rod Carew puzzle pieces.  Let's rock!

Rod Carew Puzzle - Twins - 61, 62, 63
Nolan Ryan - Rangers
Curt Schilling - Astros
John Smiley - Pirates
Jeff Treadway - Braves
Tim Wallach - Expos

Ed Whitson - Padres
Wally Joyner - Angels
Gary Sheffield - Brewers
Jeff Kunkel - Rangers
Eric King - Indians - WAHOO! Triber! Sweet!  Wait, is that back-to-back Triber packs!? Yes. Yes it is!
Don Mattingly - Yankees

Holy smokes!  Man, if this had been 1991, I would have been spazzin' out over this pack. Heck, I'm nearly geeking out over it now!  Sweet!  I'm just gonna say this: Remember the rules of distribution. I'm sure we'll see more of these.  Well, I hope, anyway!

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. These are either your taste or no. I like them. The Kunkel and Mattingly are great!

  2. You are right - some people hate these. I always liked them. I think someone could do a set today, without MLB licensing. Maybe someone has. I dunno.
