182 Packs of Baseball - 083 - Been Here Before?

We are rolling through the season, and are rapidly approaching the halfway mark.  We still have June to finish out before we get there, though.  Wow, it's been just over two months of baseball, folks.  We stil have lots of ball and a lot of packs ahead of us!

Today, I've got a pack of 1986 Donruss Ml All-Stars.

Hank Aaron Puzzle - 25, 26, 27
Darryl Strawberry - Mets - Pop-up

Dave Winfield - Yankees
Pete Rose - Reds
Jim Rice - Red Sox

Now, THAT is why I love these packs. We get players from the 80's that many of us grew up watching, and that many of my readers are too young to have seen play.  We have some of the best players of the era right here. I love it!

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. I'd like to make a claim for any unclaimed Pete Rose cards. :)

    1. Okay! I've added your name to the bottom of the list for Pete Rose. So, you will get your first pick (can't remember now what it is) and then any Pete Rose cards that filter through the other folks and wind up unclaimed. I think you will end up with one of these because how many I've opened and/or might be opening!
