182 Packs of Baseball - 100 - Chipper!

Er, well, so much for the "special" I had planned for the 100th day of the baseball season. My daughter's birthday is Saturday, and she had a bunch of friends over for a sleepover.  In addition to the girls being up most of Thursday night, I have recently discovered a game called "Two Worlds" which I have been playing on my computer. So, chalk my lack of follow-through up to a group of 9-year olds and a guy who still THINKS he is nine. Haha!

Instead, I give you a pack of 1996 Leaf Hobby:

Jon Nunnally - Royals
Wade Boggs - Yankees
Mike Hampton - Astros
Rusty Greer - Rangers
Shawn Green - Blue Jays
David Segui - Expos
Robin Ventura - White Sox
Quilvio Veras - Marlins
Dwayne Hosey - Red Sox
Chipper Jones - Braves
Bernie Williams - Yankees
Al Martin - Pirates

That was great pulling a Chipper now that he is done and will be an easy 1st round HOFer!

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. hey! Chipper is not 'done.'
    He's in the middle of a 14 game hitting streak, 15 if you count the all star game.
    And he went 2 for 3 tonight driving in 2, including a home run, which made him number one on the all time list for rbi's by a 3rd baseman, passing schmidt and brett.



    1. LOL, that's what I get for posting right before the daily deadline!

  2. Rusty Greer is one of my all time favorite Rangers.
