182 Packs of Baseball - 035

Howdy! We're here on Day 35 of the 182-day pack break.  I hope you're enjoying the show and coming up with some cards you need for your collections.  Today's pack is a 1986 Donruss Major League All-Stars.  Who did we free from the trappings of cellophane today?

Hank Aaron - Braves - Puzzle 16, 17, 18
Dave Winfield - Yankees - Pop-up
Ernie Whitt - Blue Jays
Willie McGhee - Cardinals
Wade Boggs - Red Sox

That's a pretty good mix of players from that era.  The Winfield bunting pop-up would be cool to see in 3d.  No worries, I'm not going to set it up.  I'll leave that to the discretion of its new owner.

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:
