I've had a couple readers ask me, "What does the box look like?" That is, the box from which I have been pulling packs for the 182 Packs project.
Well, today you get a look inside the box. Remember, we've done nearly half the season, so it is not as full as it was when we started. But, looking down into it should get some collector's mouths salivating. Well, maybe not THAT...
I am using a plastic storage bin to hold all the cards. Each post, I reach into the bin and pull out whatever my hand grabs. I don't look into when I am pulling a pack, either. That's why we end up with back-to-pack packs sometimes. Every so often, I reach in and toss the packs around like a salad, just to mix them up even more. What you see is the latest mixing job - done right before my last post.
I appreciate everyone who is following along - either as a participant or as a spectator. Thanks for taking the time to take a peek.
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.
