182 Packs of Baseball - 089 - A who's who, or maybe just who?

Hey, everyone! Welcome to today's pack break. We are inching our way closer to the 4th of July! Wahoo!!  Sure, today is Monday, but don't let that get you down. Why? We've got cards to check out, that's why!

Today, I've got a pack of 1997 Pinnacle Hobby (nope, not the NEW one today!)

Osvaldo Fernandez - Giants
Todd Greene - Angels
Todd Walker - Twins

Ugueth Urbina - Expos
Terry Steinbach - A's
Tony Gwynn - Padres
Roger Cedeno - Dodgers
James Baldwin - White Sox
Paul Molitor - Twins
Brett Butler - Dodgers

This is a nice mix of cards: HOF, team stand-outs and folks I have never heard of.  To me, this is essentially a "perfect pack."  It would have been fun to have an insert (or a "chase card" as Pinnacle called them), but the players alone are worth it. Cool stuff!

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 like how the gold foil has different words etched into depending on what team the player hails from. I guess that's an Uggie Urbina rookie card.
