182 Packs of Baseball - 025

Today's pack o' the day comes from a repack box I bought specifically for the pack-a-day breaks.  I realized I had lots of 90's packs but not too much in the way of 2000's so I took care of that!

Right now, I am opening up a pack of 2008 Topps Series 1 cards. 

Josh Barfield - Indians - WAHOO! Man, lead-off card is an Indians player! Sweet!
Shawn Green - Mets
AL Leaders - Borowski (Indians!), Jenks (White Sox), Putz (Mariners) - Hmm, okay, I'll need a rule for multi-team cards I see.  I'll figure it out after the season's over and the pack bustin' is done.
CJ Wilson - Rangers
Chin-Lung Hu - Dodgers

Ross Gload - Royals
Joba Chamberlain - Yankees - Dick Perez
David Wright - Mets - Work Hard, Get Cards
Wes Helms - Phillies
Eric Wedge - Indians - WHAT!? Oh yeah! TWO Tribers in one pack! Nice!
Gavin Floyd - White Sox

Awesome! I should have been Tribe-or-no-Tribe along with the breaks.  haha, sure, I can say that right now. How long did it take me to get here, though? I'd be way behind.

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. I wonder if theres a rule claiming cards from a set and not just teams. It doesnt hurt to ask. If theres no rule ill take any topps chrome cards you may post during this thing. If not then heres my 3 picks:

    Mickey Mantle
    Roberto clemente

    Check out my blog too:

    1. Yes, there are rules. The rule was adjusted (the second link at the bottom of the post) such that you can ask for a certain brand/model, but you get the "leftovers" after all other teams/players have been given out. This applies even if people, in your case, end up with cards AFTER your request. For example, if someone claims Jim Thome after you've already claimed Chrome, they will get the Thome Chrome (well, unless he is pictured on a team that has already been claimed).

      So... You ar welcome to claim Chrome plus two other players/teams. Remember to check the list, though. Anyone claiming teams/players before you will get dibs. For example, Yankees have been claimed so in order for you to get a Mantle, it would have to be a double of a card Johnathan already received.
