182 Packs of Baseball - Pack 001

If I start with Opening Day and end with the last day of the regular season, I get the following:
From and including: Thursday, April 5, 2012
To and including: Wednesday, October 3, 2012
It is 182 days from the start date to the end date, end date included.

Now, I realize there are dates in there in which no baseball will be played.  I don't care. I am going to bust open a pack of baseball cards every day between Opening Day and the last day of the regular season.  The years, brands, etc will vary.  For the sake of my own well-being, I plan to scan in 9 cards per pack maximum. Naturally, since I'm making the rules, I can break them if I need to. Or if I feel like it. Or if there are Tribers in any given pack. Or whatever. Just come along for the ride and have some fun!

Oh, I know what you're thinking: Dude, Opening Day is so two days ago.  Well, you're right. So, I better hop to it! (See what I did there? Easter is Sunday... Hop to it... Come on. You know you enjoyed it.)

  1. Are the Lincecum and Kershaw inserts for trade? I am slowly trying to build the insert sets.
    Thanks, adam

    1. Trade!? Heck no! Just send me your mailing address and they're yours for the asking. :-) Of course, if you'd like to send some Tribers my way in exchange, I'm always open to that. But, it is not required.

    1. Thanks! I hope I can stick it out! It amazes me that folks post "card-of-the-day" entries and have for YEARS! I'm just shootin for the season. :-)

  3. I will put my name in for all Mark Grace cards you pull this season. I also need tons of Stadium Club (1993 and up). If you set them aside for me you will be heartily rewarded come October. And I'm willing to bet my blogmate Jon needs a ton of the Tony Gwynns, Kerry Woods and Frank Thomases you pull! Can we work something out? -Andy
