182 Packs of Baseball - 075 - Goin to see the Tribe!

Well, the day has arrived!  Today, I am heading out to see my first Indians game in Cleveland.  I feel like a kid going to Disney World! Wait, I've been to Disney World. Well, okay, maybe a kid on Christmas or something. Any way you look at it, I am jazzed up and ready to go!  There is even a chance that I'll meet up with Baseball Dad somewhere along the route!  How cool would that be!?  I actually have a little something to give him. Sure, postage is cheaper, but not near as much fun!

Looks like we are going old school today - we've got a pack of 1986 Donruss ML All-Stars

Hank Aaron Puzzle - 10, 11, 12
Rickey Henderson - Yankees

Terry Kennedy - Padres
Cal Ripken Jr - Orioles
Steve Garvey - Padres

Well, jumpin' Jehosaphat! Henderson, Ripken and Garvey in the same pack! Now, THAT is the way to kick-start the day! Oh, sorry. I'm getting carried away with my exclamation points again.

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. Wow, two Padres, a future Padre (Henderson), and an all time favorite (Ripken). Nice pack! Hopefully there will be some Padre doubles!
