182 Packs of Baseball - 068 - Twofer!

Hey there, Tribecards fans! Thanks for coming by today. I know that is not easy to do on a Monday, and I want you to know how much I appreciate everyone that drops by.  It feels like forever since I've done a Double-Header, so why not break up Monday into TWO packs?

First, we've got a pack of 1996 Leaf Hobby.  After that, we'll take a look at a pack of 1994 Fleer Ultra Series II.

Ed Sprague - Blue Jays
Gary Sheffield - Marlins
Charles Johnson - Marlins
Tony Clark - Tigers

Greg Maddux - Braves
Mickey Morandini - Phillies
Mark Grudzielanek - Expos
Kevin Stocker - Phillies
Roger Clemens - Red Sox
Jeff Conine - Marlins
Joe Carter - Blue Jays
Todd Hundley - Mets

There were plaenty of Marlins to go around from this pack!  Of course, we have to remember to check the official list in the upper right of the site as to who gets what.  I have a feeling that filtering through these is going to be quite interesting at the end of the season.

Let's move on to the 1994 Fleer Ultra:

Dan Wilson - Mariners
Mark Kiefer - Brewers
Craig Biggio - Astros
Robin Ventura - White Sox
Frank Viola - Red Sox
David Nied - Rockies
Jose Guzman - Cubs
Mike Portugal - Giants
Mike Lieberthal - Phillies
Navier Hernandez - Yankees
Pat Listach - Brewers
Glenallen Hill - Cubs
Brian Harvey - Marlins
John Kruk - Phillies - Phillies Finest

That Wilson shot is great. He's trying to get the ball as the ump looks on, presumably at a player heading down the line.

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. John Kruk is so fat he blocks most of the letters on his card.
