182 Packs of Baseball - 056 - HoJo and Konerko

Well, the 1995 Topps Series 1 packs seem to be floating near the surface, I guess.  I feel like I just busted one of these recently.  Then again, with as many duplicate packs that I have of various years, we are bound to see runs of certain packs.  I wish I had taken a picture of the box before I started. Ah well, we move forward.

1995 Topps Series 1 Power pack:

Chili Davis - Angels
Charlie O'Brien - Braves
Charles Nagy - Indians - WAHOO! Great Indians pull!
Howard Johnson - Rockies

Dave Weathers - Marlins
Terry Shumpert - Royals
Mike Kelly - Braves
Joey Hamilton - Padres
Wil Cordero (Expos)/Cal Ripken Jr (Orioles) - Topps All Stars
Craig Orebeck - White Sox
Deion Sanders - Reds - NL Stolen Base Leader
Gerald Williams - Yankees
Paul Konerko - Dodgers - Draft Pick
Eduardo Perez - Angels - CyberStats
Ricky Bones - Brewers

Obviously, I am thrilled to pull a Triber out of the hat, er pack!  I believe we've seen some of these guys before, so hopefully some of you waiting on duplicates will score a few of these.  By the way, I'm sure I've mentioned it before, but just as a reminder: everyone who signs up gets SOMETHING.  Even if you strike out in the doubles department, you will end up with cards that fit your selected team/player/category.  They may not come directly from this break, but all who enter walk away with cards.  That is how I play.

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:
