On the Seventh Day of Cardmas, My Mistress Gave to Me...

7 Baseball Repacks,

6 Random Blasters,
5 Jersey Things,
4 Packs of Stuff,
3 UD Heroes,
2 Goodwin Blasters,
and a Baseball Gem of the Game!

In case you hadn't noticed, the theme of this 12 Days seems to be bad decisions I made in purchasing cards.

Today is no different.

That's the end result of 7 Baseball repacks from Target/Walmart/Kmart.  They're the product of too many lunch outings.

I consolidated the images into fewer scans than previous days to give you a little bit of a break.

I told you I want all of those Fathead and Topps of the Class cards.  I was super thrilled to pull the Zim Xfractor out of the single pack of 2007 Chrome I got.  Wright and Zim are in those team cards, I promise.

Hitting a few more players here.  Cool to get a Cuddyer from 2003 in a pack I wouldn't usually come across.

The Year in Review cards are cool.  I still need this card, and will compensate heavily.  The J-Hey is an insert that is on a design that should just be a base design.  Mickey has been making a number of appearances in this 12 Days.  Those Career Days cards are hideous.

Rick Ankiel as a pitcher.  Russell Martin as a rookie.  Rafael Palmeiro as a Future Star.  Jamie Moyer on a card from the '80s.  Babe Ruth as a Yankee.  Jeter as a Starquest.  McCovey, Clark, Williams, and Posey as tiny, sticky Giants.  Pujols as a sketch.  Howard as a Perfect 10.

The only thing better than Fleer stickers is Upper Deck hologram stickers.  Those Diamond Stars cards were brilliant.  The same can't be said for Golden Greats.  All-red Yadier complements all-gold Juan Pierre and a couple green dudes perfectly at Christmastime.

Minis: A&G x 5, Topps x 1, Fleer x 1, GQ x 1.
Die Cut Harper.
Awesome awesome awesome Nolan Ryan.
I got HR #716 in the same 12-Days as #756.  Appropriate.  I'll say it again, too: Barry Bonds is the best baseball player to ever play the game.
Lastly, a Roberto Alomar Diamond Cuts Jersey.  Always nice to get a relic from a repack.  I just wish it wasn't a single relic from 7 repacks. A HOFer, nonetheless.

While there weren't too many scans shown here today, tomorrow may get a wee bit heavy, in more ways than one.

This has been a fun series of posts to read. Keep 'em comin'!

IMO I think all baseball players should wear socks like Rick Ankiel.
