I have a few packs of 2008 Goudey in the "big ol' box," so when I reached in and grabbed this one, I was pretty excited. I haven't seen '08 Goudey in a while. Let's see what we get here:
Frank Thomas - A's
Jack Cust - A's
Rich Hill - Cubs
Erik Bedard - Mariners
Joe Mauer - Twins
Travis Hafner - Indians - WAHOO!
Max Scherzer - Diamondbacks
Wow, weird seeing Thomas in an A's uni... I went to high school with a guy named Rich Hill way back in the day. Not sure why I put there in there. I guess if I have a trivia contest one day, you'll know the answer to that one. The Cepeda is awesome! What a great player to have in the mix. Then, we add Mauer and Hafner. Shoot, this turned out okay. No "mojo," but some nice additions to collections, I'm sure.
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:
