182 Packs of Baseball - 078 - Break out the Tomahawks

Pop some popcorn, grab a Coke, and... What? It's only 5:30 in the morning?  Oh. Well, grab a donut and some coffee.  We're busting wax over here.

Today, we're opening a pack of 1996 Leaf Hobby.

Dante Bichette - Rockies
Tom Glavine - Braves
Michael Tucker - Royals
Steve Avery - Braves
Andy Ashby - Padres

Mickey Tettleton - Rangers
Robin Ventura - White Sox
Ryan Klesko - Braves
Alex Rodriguez - Mariners
Steve Finley - Padres
Cecil Fielder - Tigers

Wow. Cap'n Canuck hit the Braves jackpot here!  And, I believe we've seen some of these cards a time or two already, so that should mean doubles to go around. In the meantime, we've got Glavine, Ventura, and A-Rod goin on here. Nice pack!

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:
