182 Packs of baseball - 052 - Court Jester?

I've been trying to come up with funny, insightful intros for these daily pack breaks.  As I am sure you are painfully aware, that doesn't always happen.  I suppose it is akin to the local radio guy that has to announce every, single game of the season.  Eventually, you say the same kinds of things over and over until you're either spouting cliche's or creating them.

Whatever the reason you've stopped by, I appreciate it!   And, without further delay, let's open up some 1998 Stadium Club Hobby "Evens."

Pat Mears - Twins (I am 99% sure we've seen this guy before.)
Mario Valdez - White Sox
Todd Stottlemyre - Cardinals
Jason Isringhausen - Mets
Mark McGwire - Cardinals - Royal Court Insert
Matt Beech - Phillies
Jose Vidro - Expos
Jim Leyritz - Red Sox - Transactions
Andy Benes - Diamondbacks - Expansion
Checklist 1 of 2

What!? Checklist 1 of 2? That's a first here, I believe. Oh, and a little while ago, back on Day 34 or so, we saw some of these exact cards in the exact order as we see here.  We're talking duplicates, folks! More cards to go around. Wahoo!

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. Ouch! This is the 2nd pack that made me wish I'd requested McGwires!

    Keep up the good work!
