182 Packs of Baseball - 055 - Before the drug, there was YAZ

We are approaching the end of May pretty quickly.  It's hard to believe June will be here in just a few days.  And, you know what happens when June hits, right?  That's right: the countdown begins!  The date when my first Indians game in Cleveland will be here soon! Wahoo!

But, before I get ahead of myself, we've got some bustin' goin' on.  How about a pack of 2010 Topps Update Series?  Okay.

Evan Longoria - Rays - AL All-Star
Josh Reddick - Red Sox
Joe Saunders - Diamondbacks
Brian McCann - Braves - NL All-Star

Jon Lester - Red Sox - AL All-Star
Vladimir Guerrero (Rangers?)/Miguel Cabrera (Tigers) - AL All-Star
Ryan Theriot - Dodgers
Christian Guzman - Rangers
Sean Marshall - Cubs
Carl Yastrzemski - Red Sox (Blue Back mini Game card)
Topps Million Card Giveaway
Andre Ethier - Dodgers - Topps Attax

Ouch. Was Guerrero with the Angels or the Rangers during the 2010 All-Star Game?  Well, let me know and that's the team he'll be associated with here.  Man, we ended up with some cards out of this one.  The Yaz is a very cool little card indeed!

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. Vlad was with the Rangers at the time.

    I don't have a vested interest in the cards, but I do enjoy opening a pack every morning! Even if I'm living vicariously through your efforts.

  2. You can see the Rangers flag patch on his sleeve. That Yaz is very nice!

  3. Thanks for the info and good eyes on the patch! Tom, glad I could help. haha!
