182 Packs of Baseball - 111 - Won-Won-Won Wonder Wheels!

Happy Birthday to my oldest son today!! Wahoo!  Hard to believe I have a son getting ready for his senior year in high school. Man, where does the time disappear?

The subtitle comes from a cartoon I used to watch when I was kid.  Anyone else remember that show? Probably not. To me, it was like some kind of "Scooby Doo" rip off.  That has nothing to do with busting wax, but it did pop into my head when I typed the day number. I digress. Often.

Today's pack is a 2008 Bowman.

Alex Rios - Blue Jays
Brandon Webb - Diamondbacks
Derrek Lee - Cubs
Aubrey Huff - Orioles
Austin Kearns - Nationals
Iggy Suarez - Red Sox
Anthony Claggett - Yankees
Brian Finegan - Indians - Chrome - WAHOO!!
Ryan Khoury - Red Sox - Chrome
Michael McHenry - Rockies - Gold

Hey, glad I pulled an Indians player out of that one! Very cool.  The gold card sure is nice, too.

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:
