It's the last day of April, marking the end of the month when the season first began. No, not a month of baseball, of course. Rather, it is just the end of month in which our favorite pasttime took its official 2012 start. Today, we mark this event with a pack of 1996 Leaf Hobby. Let us embark together:
Denny Neagle - Pirates
Joe Carter - Blue Jays
Kenny Lofton - Indians - WAHOO! Triber time!
Brian Jordan - Cardinals
Terrell Wade - Braves
Ray Durham - White Sox
Brad Asmus - Padres
Marquis Grissom - Braves
Eric Young - Rockies
Moises Alou - Expos
Ozzie Guillen - White Sox
John Smoltz - Braves
Hey, not a bad group of players. I sure can't complain about pulling a Triber from the pack! I am almost certain I have this one, so it will most likely find its way to the next Tribe collector in line.
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:
