182 Packs of Baseball - 028

Come on in, folks, grab a seat.  I'm not sure what we'll face today, but I can't think of a better way to kick things off than to crack open a pack of cards!  Let's see, today's selection from the big ol' box of packs yields: 1997 NEW Pinnacle Hobby.  I wish we could find some cool inserts in these.  But, I figure since they were a bulk buy through eBay, they aren't going to give us much in that direction.  Of course, I don't actually mind, since I'm having a great time doing this little project!

Joe Carter - Blue Jays
Chris Snopek - White Sox
Tom Glavine - Braves
Matt Lawton - Twins
Carlos Garcia - Blue Jays

Andy Benes - Cardinals
Tim Naehring - Red Sox
Jim Edmonds - Angels
Matt Williams - Indians - WAHOO! Score a Triber!
Juan Gonzalez - Rangers

Hot dog!  Snagged an Indians player in there.  Of course, Carter, Glavine, and couple others in there are nothing to sneeze at, either.  Not a bad pack, especially had we busted this open back in '97.

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. Your blog is my favorite read of the morning. I'm afraid I'm going to have to stack up on packs for the off season to fill the void that you'll leave once the season is over!

  2. hmm... I actually like those cards. Are you sure they're from the overproduction era?
