Welcome to this Sunday's edition of "182 Packs." I should call this the "Late Night" edition since I am posting this so late this evening.
But, the games on after a rain delay and so we will trudge onward, ripping wax with reckless abandon. Or something like that. Tonight, I am hitting you with a pack of 2009 SP.
Dustin Pedroia - Red Sox
Andy Pettitte - Yankees
James Shield - Rays
Yadier Molina - Cardinals
These are nice-looking cards. The white borders witht he fading colors makes for a pleasant visual effect. I also like the the images crossing the borders - a fine work of Photoshopping indeed.
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:
