182 Packs of Baseball - 086 - It's a matter of 3s

Myeah, see, we're on eighty-six, see? Myeah. Myeah.

Kudos if you mentally pictured some 30's gangster as you read that.  Zeroes if you have no idea what I'm talking about.  haha, just kidding.

Let's see what pack of cards we can "86" today: How about 2008 Topps Value Pack (30 cards) with '07 Highlight Autographs and '07 World Series Champion Autograph Relics!!  Yeah, don't hold your breath. This was from a repack. I'd be surprised if the pack hadn't already been pilfered through.  For the record, it seems to be factory sealed.

Wow! Lots of cards there. well, actually, lots of teams with three cards.  Luckily for Tribe fans, the Indians were one of those teams! Hope some of these will help your collections.

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:
