182 Packs of Baseball - Day 153 - Last name same as the first

Sometimes, everyone else in the house has gone to sleep before I post a pack busting. In those times, I venture into the "home office" where the big ol' box of cards sits and I reach into the box - completely in the dark.  Tonight is one of those nights.

I ended up with a pack of 1997 Pinnacle Hobby NEW.  Let's see what cardboard goodness lies ahead:

Frank Thomas - White Sox
Mariano Rivera - Yankees
Albert Belle - White Sox - AURA
Terry Steinbach - Twins
Michael Tucker - Braves
Johnny Damon - Royals
Tim Naehring - Red Sox
Andres Galarraga - Rockies
Damon Buford - Rangers
Nomar Garciaparra - Red Sox - Rookie

That Belle card stands out! Man, I love those Aura inserts. Johnny Damon doesn't even look like himself on that Royals card.  Of course, you'll have to wait until I can scan in the cards to see those, and others. Ah well, more to look forward to, right?


  1. Welcome to my world! More than half my posts are when the house is dark and everyone else is asleep!

    1. And here I thought you were Night Owl just for the nighttime cards! Glad I'm not alone.
