182 Packs of Baseball - 076 - East Meets Aura

Puttering right along, we've menaged to reach day 76 in our season-long adventure of opening at least one pack of baseball cards for each day.  We are moving closer and closer to the halfway point, but we still have a bit of road ahead before we reach that mile marker.

In the meantime, let's rip open some 1997 Pinnacle Hobby New:

Chris Snopek - White Sox
Travis Fryman - Tigers
Gary Sheffield - Marlins - East Meets West
Cal Ripken Jr - Orioles
Robb Nen - Marlins

Henry Rodriguez - Expos
Juan Gonzalez - Rangers - AURA
Andy Benes - Cardinals
Tim Naehring - Red Sox
Roberto Hernandez - White Sox

Hey, we pulled another "East Meets West" *and* an Aura card!  This pack was nice enough to throw a Ripken our way, too.  That makes back-to-back Ripken packs!  No Indians, but hopefully that will change in packs to come.

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.
