182 Packs of Baseball - 064 - Wax on, wax off

Good day, eh, and welcome to day 64. 

Will you still need packs, will you still love packs on Day 64?

We've opened a pack each day for each crayon that USED to be in the "big" box.

I think that's enough "64" references. Let's get bustin'.  Today, we're looking at 1991 Studio.

Rod Carew Puzzle 13, 14, 15
Bret Saberhagen - Royals
Cal Ripken Jr - Orioles
Mickey Morandini - Phillies

Ryne Sandberg - Cubs
Greg Swindell - Indians - WAHOO!! Let's Go Tribe!
Dave Righetti - Giants
Brian McRae - Royals
Gregg Olson - Orioles
Roger McDowell - Phillies
Mark Grace - Cubs (Anyone else see a pattern here?)
Kevin Maas - Yankees (And there goes the pattern. Figures.)

The Carew puzzle card features his face. With the border, it is as if he is trapped in the card, looking outward for some help - "How do I get out of this card!?"  As for the rest of the pack, we've got a nice mix of superstars, team stars, and at least one guy I don't remember (Morandini).  I think McDowell was prepping for role in a particular karate-themed movie franchise.

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. What are you doing with the puzzle pieces?

    I need that one !

    1. Puzzle pieces will go to the player/team requested. If there are extras after dupes/trips, they will be put in the community pot. I will have a "trade days" post after everything is sorted in case folks want to trade before cards get shipped.
