182 Packs of Baseball - 084 - A revelation of sorts

Hello, everyone! Welcome to another summer day of bustin' our wax.  Today's pack features cards from 1998.  We've seen plenty of these packs so far, and we will see more in the future. Know what they are yet? Sure you do... EVEN a casual reader can spot this CLUB, no matter in which STADIUM they prefer to watch their team.

That's right - 1998 Topps Stadium Club Hobby Evens

Hideki Trabu - Yankees
Dave Hollins - Angels
Lance Johnson - Cubs

Garret Anderson - Angels
Matt Stairs - A's
Tim Belcher - Royals
Danny Neagle - Braves
Pedro Martinez - Red Sox - Transactions
Chuck Knoblauch - Yankees - Transaction
Checklist 1 of 2

I have never heard of Trabu, but that doesn't really mean anything - as you well know if you read along much at all. I love collecting Indians cards, but my specific knowledge of players is about as weak as they come.  I like the Transactions cards. Hey! I just now noticed that the "old" team logo is lightly printed at the top of each card on the front. Yeah, I really am that slow sometimes.

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:
