182 Packs of Baseball - 034

Okay, folks, today we are opening a pack of 1998 Stadium Club Hobby Edition.  As before, these are "The Evens."  Each card will have an even number, except for any inserts.  Those will have whatever numbering scheme Topps came up with.  Good luck!

Mark Wohlers - Braves
Juan Gonzalez - Rangers
Dante Bichette - Rockies
Stan Javier - Giants
Eric Karros - Dodgers

Matt Beech - Phillies
Jose Vidro - Expos
Jim Leyritz - Red Sox - TRANSACTIONS
Andy Benes - Diamondbacks - EXPANSION
Checklist 2 of 2

Gonzalez looks like he's learning how to stand on one foot... The TOP of one foot.  Bichette poses in the bullpen car.  Really?  I guess since it was parked in the warning track, he figured "Why Not?"  The Beech card is actually very cool - blurred batter, ball in mid-pitch.  Kudos to the photographer on this one.

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 like that Dante Bichette card. Definitely funny/unusual.
