10 Packs A Day

1 02 2008

It took about 4 months to finally get linked at The Baseball Card Blog. I figure it should be a couple more months till A Pack A Day does the same. In the meantime, I am creating a new blog, titled, “10 Packs A Day”. Okay, not really but a guy can dream can’t he? Well, after a tough day at work I came home and found 10 packs of baseball cards waiting on the bed, purchased by The Infamous Tatiana, the first  lady of baseball cards.

Now normally I wouldn’t get too excited about Retail packs from Target but I was exhausted and it was a great gesture that was truly appreciated. Here I will do a pack by pack breakdown for the first time ever at Wax Heaven. I hope you enjoy.

2 White Sox players in packs? You have the same ratio of luck as I do.

Nice Belle though.

Congrats on the Miller!

Man, I can’t believe we got an Andrew Miller of all things! That’s amazing! I didn’t even feel up on a pack! Yeah, beat THAT pack searcher!!!!!!!!!🙂

So is Dunn your new favorite player to replace Canseco? That Freel card is nice and I am digging the Country Slaughter card. First time I have seen that one.

Its tough enough to pull a jersey card out of random retail packs but you managed to pull someone you are collecting right now. Nice!

Cool! My “still looking” image has escaped and is infecting the blogosphere.

Nice one on the Andrew Miller and I’ve always wondered what was in those $50 packs.

Thanks, DayF….I needed an excuse not to post a scan for that awful pack.

Joey, pure luck on Tatiana’s part. I am very happy.🙂

Joe, I don’t have enough nice Dunn’s to make him my favorite but his cards have a nice new place in my Stars box.

Steve, I expected more White Sox players. Surprised to have such a low number. I will set these aside, of course.

Only need the Belle, unless the Jenks card is g-o-o-o-o-o-old.

I know everyone else is salivating over the Miller card (I guy I had never heard of until you asked me to make that “fun card”), but I love the Garbage Pail Kids! I have a few from the 80s, and a few less from the 2000s. I used to make my own, too. I don’t know if I still have those or not though.
