182 Packs of Baseball - 079 - A Rare Score

Welcome to Friday!!  Tonight, my family and I (and by "family," I mean FAMILY - Aunts and Uncles included!!) are going to watch the Pirates play some ball.  I haven't seen a live Pirates game since I was a kid and they played in Three Rivers Stadium.  I'm pretty sure we had serious nosebleed seats.  That won't be the case for today. I scored nice tickets quite some time ago.  I'll post pics later.

While I am getting ready for that, I leave you with a pack of 2008 Upper Deck Series 2 to ponder:

Aaron Harang - Reds
Javier Vazquel - White Sox
Sean Marshall - Cubs
Jayson Nix - Rockies
Ryan Zimmerman - Nationals

Skip Schumaker - Cardinals
Francisco Liriano - Twins
Pedro Martinez - Mets
Cliff Floyd - Rays
Emil Brown - A's
Jason Jennings - Rangers
Erik Bedard - Mariners
Chris Denorfia - A's
Matt Tupman - Royals
Aaron Harang - Reds - Checklist
Jake Peavy - Padres
Alex Romero - Diamondbacks
Vladimir Guerrero - Angels - Starquest Rare

Nice score on the Vlad! This pack had a decent mix of players and a couple teams we haven't had a chance to much from as 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. That's awesome about the game! Always cool to go with a big group.

    I'm totally stoked about that Chris Denorfia card! He's one of my favorite Padres, but being more of a "4th or 5th outfielder" he doesn't get a lot of playing time or cardboard time. I forgot that he was on the A's at one point, so this is a great surprise!
