182 Packs of Baseball - 032

Welcome to sexto de Mayo!  Oh, sure, that's not a real thing, but what difference does it make when you're BUSTING WAX!?  Yeah, that's right. I'm still cookin' here.  Maybe a little Pack-punch drunk, but still groovin just the same.  Thanks for coming along with me.

Reaching into the pack box, I grab: 2006 Topps Opening Day - with Bazooka Gum in every pack!

Alfonso Soriano - Nationals
Luis Castillo - Twins
Dmitri Young - Tigers
Rich Harden - A's

Wily Mo Pena - Reds
Nick Swisher - A's
Jack Wilson - Pirates - Sports Illustrated for Kids MAX ACTION
Work Hard, Get Cards insert

The "Max Action" card is pretty cool, though closer inspection sure makes it look like a bad photoshop job there to the left near his head.  I can only assume that his jersey is riding up weirdly as he's running.  Otherwise, someone lopped off half his shoulder there.

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. All right! About time we got to some A's! Not that I'm a huge A's fan, but that's one of the teams that I got, and it's nice to get cards.

    Although I have been following the Nats and A's more closely since I chose them on this site.

    Great pack!
