I spent the evening watching the USA take medals and/or place highly in swimming and women's gymnastics. Very proud to be an American for sure!
Tonight, we celebrate all things good about America by opening a pack of 2009 Upper Deck Signature Stars. Er, well, there is the whole "NOT authorized by MLB" thing, but we'll ignore that for tonight.
Adrian Gonzalez - A's
Ryan Howard - Phillies - Trophy Winners Insert
Chipper Jones - Braves
These are pretty nice cards. And, despite not being authorized, you can still pretty well figure out which team is featured by looking at the players.
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:
