Hey everyone! We are back from our vacation, which explains why this post appears "late" compared to my other ones. We had a great time at the Indians and Pirates games while we were away. "We" would be me and my family, just in case you thought I was referring to myself in the plural.
Well, let's get to busting some wax: 2010 Topps Baseball Update Series
Aaron Heilman - Diamondbacks
Jeanmar Gomez - Indians - WAHOO! Now, that is how to come back from vaca!
Blake DeWitt - Cubs
Rich Harden - Rangers
John Lackey - Red Sox
Carlos Silva - Cubs
Omar Infante - Braves
Kevin Russo - Yankees
Josh Donaldson - A's
Stephen Strasburg - Nationals - More Tales of the Game - Rookie Tsunami
Roy Halladay - Phillies - Topps Attax
Well, score one for the Tribe! Since 2010 was the year of the phenom, we have two Strasburg inserts thrown in for good measure. Not a bad mix of cards at all.
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:
