182 Packs of Baseball - 029

I have to admit, with all the packs of older stuff in the big box, it surprises me when I pull something post-2000.  But, hey, the luck of the draw is the luck of the draw.  Today, we're looking at a pack of 2004 Topps Series One.  It's been a long time since I've seen one of these packs.

Mariano Rivera - Yankees
Dustin Mohr - Twins
Brett Tomko - Cardinals

2003 NL Hits Leaders - Pujols (Cardinals), Helton (Rockies), Pierre (Marlins)
2004 San Diego Future Stars - Bernis Castro, Khalil Greene
Dave Roberts - Dodgers

Well, there is no surprise as to which card is the "biggie" here.  Well, to me, anyway, that would be Rivera.  Perhaps others would argue another card provides the biggest "bang."

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.
