I hope everyone is doing well! My thoughts and prayers go out to those who have been affected by the recent storms and horrendous wildfires across our country. I realize that opening packs of cards is nothing compared to what many of you may be going through, and I just wanted you to know that I am praying.
Turning our eyes toward today's pack of cards, we find 2009 O-Pee-Chee:
Brian Anderson - White Sox
Scott Feldman - Rangers (Black Border)
Kerry Wood - Cubs - 20th Anniversary Retrospective
Jose Reyes - Mets - Moments
Saul Rivera - Nationals
Ken Griffey Jr - Mariners
Well, not a bad mix of players. The Rivera card looks cool with all the matching reds. The Reyes card celebrates a guy who fell short of hitting for the cycle. Wow, not sure I would want *that* to be a celebrated "moment."
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.
