182 Packs of baseball - 105 - Showin Clout

We have reached the middle of the week! The Indians have fallen to 3 games of out first in the AL Central division while the Pirates are tied for first in NL Central. Holy smokes, what is going here?!

I'll tell ya what's going on - pack-bustin', that's what!

Today, we've got 1997 Pinnacle Hobby:

Kenny Lofton - Indians - Clout - WAHOO! What a way to start a pack!
Jose Paniagua - Expos
Robin Jennings - Cubs
Brant Brown - Cubs
Jeff Cirillo - Brewers
Ryne Sandberg - Cubs
Chipper Jones - Braves
Alex Rodriguez - Mariners
Harold Baines - White Sox
Ron Gant - Cardinals

The Lofton card is great! I am pretty sure I have it, so it will get passed along. Cirillo is definitely going to the crazy card collector! What a goof.  He actually looks like the photog caught him by surprise - and not the good kind.  Boy, add in Sandberg, Jones, A-Rod and Baines, and we've made up quite a nice little pack for Hump Day.

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:
