Today marks the 42nd day of pack opening. As we all know, the number "42" represents a special place in America's Pasttime. So, today, I am going to bust open 42 packs of cards! No, just kidding. You think I'm nuts!? Well, even so, I'm not opening 42 packs in one shot. As fun as that would be, it would mostly serve to deplete my box o' packs.
I will, however, crack open a pack of 1994 Fleer Ultra Series II. That's close, right?
Chris Sabo - Orioles
Carlos Baerga - Indians - WAHOO! Let's Go Tribe!
Mike Kelly - Braves
Ramon Martinez - Dodgers
Pedro Martinez - Expos
David Cone - Royals
Ruben Sierra - A's
Randy Johnson - Mariners
Willie Banks - Cubs
Fausto Cruz - A's
Juan Guzman - Blue Jays
Mike Piazza - Dodgers - Rising Stars
Okay, the Piazza card is incredibly cool-looking - shiny, sparkly, glowing. Very eye-catching! Glad to see a fan-favorite Indians player in the mix. That is always a bonus. I am curious if the two Martinez boys are related. That would be fun.
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.
