Come Mister Tally Man, tally me base-ball packs. Ah, yes, we have reached the end of May... Call it "Sinko No Mayo" if you will. On second thought, let's not. Instead, let's reach into the magic box of cards and see what's in store. Does May go out like a lion or a lamb? (I don't even know what that means in relation to busting wax)
We end the month of May by ripping the cover off a 1986 Donruss ML All-Stars with pop-up. I can see the pop-up through the cellophane. Someone is going to be very, very happy.
Hank Aaron - Puzzle 7, 8, 9
Eddie Murray - Orioles - Pop-Up
Willie Hernandez - Tigers
Jose Cruz - Astros
Bert Blyleven - Indians - WAHOO!! We've seen this a time or two, so doubles are in for sure!
See? Did I tell you someone would be happy about that pop-up?! Eddie Murray, man! That is fantastic. I can't even come up with anything else to say after that. Just, wow!
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.
