182 Packs of Baseball - 033

Welcome to another Monday.  Usually, people can't stand to think about all the things they have to do during the week, especially on Monday.  Well, before you get out you calendars and schedules, let's see what bit of cardboard goodness lies in wait for us.

How about a pack of 2005 Topps Series One?  Wow, I didn't even realize I had this one.  Must have come as part of a repack box.  Let's dig in.

Larry Bowa - Phillies
Mike Hampton - Braves
Chad Fox - Marlins

2004 Home Run Leaders - Manny Ramirez (Red Sox), Paul Konerko (White Sox), David Ortiz (Red Sox)
Barry Zito - A's
Mike Matheny - Cardinals

Well, based on the fact that there are TWO Red Sox players on the HR Leaders card, that is going to the first Red Sox fan on the list.  Congrats!

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. I always get 2005 and 2006 Topps mixed up but I really like 2005. 2006 is awful for me. It reminds me of 2002 Donruss with the black boxes on front.
