182 Packs of Baseball - 109 - Foiled (or not)

Moving right along with our "Pack-a-Day (and sometimes more)" season break, I have reached into the big ol' box of packs and today's little nugget of cardboard goodness comes from 2009 Upper Deck Icons. Wow, I didn't even realize I had Icons still in there! See? Even *I* don't know what I've got.

Magglio Ordonez - Tigers
Ichiro - Mariners
Carlos Quentin - White Sox - Foil
Roy Oswalt - Astros
John Lackey - Angels

That Quentin card is very shiny. i find it odd that the regular cards have gold foil logos and the foil card has a regular logo. We can't do foil-on-foil? Weird.

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:
