182 Packs of Baseball - 101 - Seeing Double

We are 101 days into the baseball season and the Tribe is 3 games behind the lead for AL Central. Meanwhile, the Bucs are only half a game out of first in the NL Central.  I'm hoping neither team blows it during the second half.  Pirates fans will remember how the team fell into total collapse - for the past 22 seasons.

I digress.  We're here to bust open some wax.  Today, I've got a pack of 1998 Stadium Club "Evens" for you:

Rondell White - Expos
Gary Sheffield - Marlins
Pedro Astacio - Rockies
Brady Anderson - Orioles
Manny Alexander - Cubs
Felix Heredia - Marlins
Felix Heredia - Marlins (That is not a mistype!)
Ben Grieve - A's - Prime Rookies
Walt Weiss - Braves - Transactions
Checklist 1 of 2

Yes, they really did put two Heredia cards back-to-back in the same pack.  And, I believe we have seen all these cards before except maybe the Prime Rookie.  That should mean some doubles to go around.

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:
