182 Packs of Baseball - 104 - Xponential Fun

Hey everyone! Welcome to the 104th day of pack-busting goodness! I hope you're all having a good time checking out the different packs I've been opening throughout the season.  We still have a lot of baseball and a lot of packs to open.

Today's pack comes from 2009 Upper Deck X

Alex Rios - Blue Jays
Jake Peavy - Padres
Justin Morneau - Twins - Die Cut

Derrek Lee - Cubs - Xpontential (X2-DL)
Derek Holland - Rangers
Jose Reyes - Mets

Oh, man, that Xponential card is very cool! You can't tell it in the scan, but it is one shiny little piece of cardboard there. The die cuts are also a nice touch.

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:
