182 Packs of Baseball - 037

We're about a third of the way through May and there is still a LOT of wax to bust.  Today, we've got a pack of 1994 Fleer Ultra Series II.  Some inserts from this set are Strikeout Kings, Phillies Finest, and Ultra All-Stars.  Let's take a peek inside:

Wayne Gomes - Phillies
Keith Lockhart - Padres
Michael Tucker - Royals
Ricky Bones - Brewers
Bobby Munoz - Phillies
Stan Javier - A's
Carlos Garcia - Pirates
Mike Greenwell - Red Sox
Jack McDowell - White Sox
Randy Meyers - Cubs
Greg Harris - Rockies
Ricky Bottalico - Phillies
Todd Benzinger - Giants
Ken Griffey Jr - Mariners - Ultra All-Star

Wow, there sure were plenty of Phillies in there.  The Junior card is very cool!  Bright red, retro graphics in the background.  Nice stuff!

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:
