182 Packs of baseball - 088 - We got a Hoppa

Welcome to the beginning of July! I have been enjoying the pack breaks and cannot believe we have almost reached the halfway point. Wow, what a LOT of cards!

Today, we're looking at a pack of 1991 Studio.

Rod Carew puzzle - 1, 2, 3
Dave Winfield - Angels
Scott Sanderson - Yankees

Bobby Thigpen - White Sox
Bip Roberts - Padres - AUGH! We got BIPPED!
Mickey Tettleton - Tigers
Rafael Palmeiro - Rangers
Howard Johnson - Mets
Kelly Mann - Braves
Brian Harper - Twins
Wally Joyner - Angels
Todd Zeile - Cardinals

Winfield was a nice pull. Too bad we got Bipped! Haha, that's not actually bad, but poor Roberts has now become synonymous with a large number of duplicates that even single pulls of his card have taken on the connotation. It's all in fun.

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:
