182 Packs of Baseball - 074 - All the Kings men

Hey, folks! Thanks for dropping in to see what today's pack of cards brings us.  Since this is Sunday, and it is Father's Day, I want to wish all the fathers out there a very Happy Father's Day!!  I'll be spending the day with my family and my extended family in the suburbs of Pittsburgh!  I'm looking forward to having a lot of fun and playing a LOT of catch-up!

So, to ring in this Father's Day, we have a pack of 2006 Fleer Ultra!

Hideki Matsui - Yankees - RBI Kings
Moises Alou - Giants
Zach Duke - Pirates
Mark Teixeira - Rangers - Retro Lucky 13

Felipe Lopez - Reds
Alfonso Soriano - Rangers - Midsummer Classic Kings
Brady Clark - Brewers (Gold?)
Miguel Cabrera - Marlins

The "KINGS" cards are VERY cool-looking.  I think Fleer did a good job with those ones. Oh, wait. That would be Upper Deck dba Fleer.  The Clark card has a full gold/broze background, where the other cards have full-color ones.  There is no designation as to it being a "gold" card though. Usually, Fleer would have "Gold Medallion" or something. Ah well.

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. Happy Father's Day to you as well!
