182 Packs of Baseball - 048 - In the crease

I mentioned in one of the earlier breaks that I am trying to incorporate more recent packs and more of the same packs (that is, doing things to encourage duplication).  Well, I don't think I've opened one of these yet, but it is (sorta) recent.  Today, I grabbed a pack of 2009 Goudey.

Derrick Lee - Cubs (and a bit creased to boot)
Kelly Shoppach - Indians - WAHOO!! Wow, that is awesome!
Sparky Lyle - Yankees
Travis Snider - Blue Jays
Adrian Gonzalez - Padres

Wow, a Triber in a pack of five cards. Sweet!  I did a quick check and I already have it.  Timothy, it's all yours, man.  As it turns out, these all have some creasing. The hazards of repacks, I guess. Bummer.

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.
