182 Packs of Baseball - 096 - No, not *that* MJ...

We are inching our way to the All-Star game! I've got a special break lined out for tomorrow's All-Star Game.  I am still irioning out some of the details, but I think it will a lot of fun. Well, it will be for me at least! Haha!

But, before we gethere, we've got some wax to bust today!  How about some 1998 Stadium Club Hobby EVENS?  Yeah, I need to find some ODD packs before this whole thing is over.

Pedro Astacio - Rockies
Mark Wohlers - Braves
Juan Gonzalez - Rangers
 Mann Alexander - Cubs
Shannon Stewart - Blue Jays
Mike Jackson - Indians - WAHOO!! An MJ Triber! W00T!
Roberto Duran - Tigers
Jay Bell - Diamondbacks - EXPANSION
Cecil Fielder - Angels - TRANSACTIONS
Checklist 2 of 2

Anyone else have the name "Wahlberg" jump in ther head for a moment? No? Just me. That Alexander card is hilarious. He looks like someone picked him from the audience, handed him a bat and told him to get up to the plate. Still in disbelief, Topps snapped his photo. I am glad to see I managed to pull an Indians player from the pack. Excellent!

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:
