182 Packs of Baseball - 038

Welcome to Saturday!  I hope you're thinking ahead to Mother's Day tomorrow.  If you haven't decided what you're doing for your Mom this year, you could always grab a pack of cards and open it together, bringing back childhood memories of days gone by. 

Today, we've got another pack of 1986 Donruss Major League All-Stars:

Hank Aaron - Braves - Puzzle 58, 59, 60
Rickey Henderson - Yankees - Pop-up
Cal Ripken Jr - Orioles
Terry Kennedy - Padres
Ron Darling - Mets

Holy smokes, man, what a great pack of cards!  Can you imagine opening this pack back in '86!?  Well, some of you can't - you weren't even born yet. Hahaha!  For those of us that could, though... I would have been a year away from graduating high school.  That means, I wouldn't have opened this in '86 because I was taking time off from collecting in those days to persue other interests.

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 don't remember opening packs like this -- but I did open packs that had JUST the stand-ups in them. Must've been some sort of different packaging by Donruss.
