182 Packs of Baseball - 051 - What's in a name?

It occurred to me that I really misnamed this little project.  I am not opening 182 packs of cards.  Rather, I am opening packs of cards for 182 consecutive days.  Maybe a better name should have been, "182 Days of Baseball Packs" or something.  Well, should I continue this endeavor next season, I'll go with a better title.  As it is, I have no idea how many actual packs I will open.  I think my intention was one pack per day, but then I started throwing in "Double Header Days" and things like yesterday's milestone break.  Ah well, I don't think anyone out there is complaining.

As it is, we move forward!  Today's pack is a 1997 Pinnacle Hobby NEW

Bill Pulsipher - Mets
Cecil Fielder - Yankees
Pat Hentgen - Blue Jays
Eddie Murray - Angels
Jason Giambi - A's
Raul Mondesi - Dodgers
Derek Bell - Astros
Paul Sorrento - Mariners
Royce Clayton - Cardinals
Eric Young - Rockies

I can't recall off the top of my head, but I believe we've got several players in here that we've seen before in the '97 Pinnacle New set.  That means we've got cards to spread around!

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.
