182 Packs of Baseball - 077 - Feelin O-Pee-Chee

Hey, everyone!  Hope things are going well. I should be at the halfway point in my family vacation about now, if things are going as planned.  Since I am posting these ahead of time, I can only imagine...

What do we have today?  How about some 2009 O-Pee-Chee?  Okay, sounds good.

Phil Hughes - Yankees
Luis Castillo - Mets
Chris Perez - Cardinals

Michael Young - Rangers - Midsummer Memories
Ichiro - Mariners - Black Border?
Colby Rasmus - Cardinals - Rookie

The Midsummer Memories card has a strange appeal to it. Like a weird version of 70's Topps.  The Ichiro is the only card with a black border in the pack, so I assume it means something? As usual, I'll let you tell me!

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. The black border is just a parallel created to "inspire" more pack purchases.

  2. OPC doesn't get enough love... being a Canadian, I've grown up with it!
