I was with my wife tonight and I had an itch to get a few items, overall I got much more than my wife agreed on. For those who watch Storage Wars, my wife and I are like Brandi and Jarrod....when she sets a certain price (like $40) , we automatically double it (I hear $80)! Though my wife was kind of mad, she did enjoy opening all the packs!
So without further ado I got the following items:
4 Retail Jumbo Packs - 2012 Topps Update
Blaster Box - 2012 Topps Update
20 Baseball Card Packs - Retail Various
3 Packs (1 Value Pack) - 2012 Topps Chrome
Now I am just going to hit the highlights of all the packs:
David Ortiz Blockbuster Trade Patch
(I will trade this for a CARGO Blockbuster Patch!)
2009 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Justin Upton
(pulled from the 20 pack retail box)
I love the new Blockbuster trade patch, but I got a Boston, I want a Rockies! So I am open for a trade of Ortiz for a Carlos Gonzalez.
I am very happy with the 3 orange chrome cards, Lee, Santan, and Ellsbury, all star cards!
Pack 1: The first card, Harper Chrome RC! Then Ramirez, Darnell RC, and Federowicz RC.
Pack 2: Trout, Pence, Heyward, and Swisher. A very good pack!
Last pack, Sabathia, Green RC, Napoli, Reynolds. A solid pack!
Between the blaster box and 4 jumbo Topps Update packs, I pulled 10 Gold Update #ed to 2012. Not bad considering 1:4 odds.
First Golden Moments pulled, TULO! Awesome, the only thing missing it wasn't a relic!
I pulled 6 Golden Sparkle Cards. Pretty good ha
6 1987 Mini Topps Cards, and pulled a Lance Lynn Cardinals!
I pulled 3 Blockbusters Cards, Carlton, Ryan, and the Angles first baseman.
Got some Nationals love, a Harper RC, two All Stars, and a Tyler Moore RC.
One of the odd ball packs was Topps Update/Heritage. I got four rookies, and a McCutchen Rookie Performers. Sweet Pack!
Below I am just going to picture some of the other cards that matter that I pulled, otherwise if I show every single card then this blog would be forever.
That was my retail night adventure, I hope to hit a hobby shop later in the week on my next trip to St. Louis.
