182 Packs of Baseball - 102 - Iconic for sure

Hey everyone!  I know I have really shifted posting gears by moving to a late-night posting schedule. I'm not sure how that affects everyone, but I guess I'll let the analytics figure it out, eh.  And, if you know me, you know I'll end up with some other scheme before this is all said and done.  Maybe at lunchtime at work. Who knows!

For tonight,s pack-busting fun, though, I've got a 2009 Upper Deck Icons:

Carlos Zambrano - Cubs
Miguel Cabrera - Tigers
Derek Jeter - Yankees
Tim Hudson - Braves
Alex Rodriguez - Yankees

Well, they don't call 'em "Icons" for nothing.  These are certainly iconic players for their respective teams and a couple are iconic MLBers period.  What are we going to do when the post-Jeter era comes upon us?  Of course, I'm still pondering the Majors without Chipper Jones. That just seems weird - akin to when Ripken Jr retired.  Think on this one: My son has never known a Jeter-less Yankees team as he was born the same year Jeter debuted. He has also never known a Chipper-less Braves team. Now, THAT will make one start to feel old.

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:
