On to the sneak peak. While running an errand I stopped off at Wal-mart on my way home from work and saw two rows of Topps Series 2 blaster boxes staring back at me. I picked one up to read the box with no intention of buying any, just a looksy I swear. Well of course the box in front of the adjacent row started to fall so I quickly grabbed it before it fell. Taking it as a sign that this box wanted to go home with me (that's the story I sold myself, tough sell, I know) I went ahead and the bought the falling blaster.
It had 10 packs and since it was from Wal-mart, two of them had the exclusive blue bordered cards. I didn't scan in all the inserts because I plan on doing a whole bunch this weekend for the break but I did take the time to scan a couple of my favorite cards.
For my Tony Campana PC I pulled his base card:
And the blue bordered Wal-mart parallel:
I pulled a few other Cubs cards (Samardzija and Volstad) but I'll wait until I have a full team set to post more. Or leave it up to Paul over at Wrigley Wax. He's real good about that! I also pulled some Nats cards for my son (R. Zimmerman, Wang and Gio along with Strasburg and LaRoche blue parallels). So a pretty productive blaster.
As usual, I saved the bonus commemorative patch card pack for last and was very happy with what I pulled. I guess the shelf diving blaster really did want to go home with me. Two cards for the PC, a couple more Cubs and Nats and this:
I never really figured out what these Historical Stitches were supposed to be but hey, at least its a Cub and one of my top 10 favorites too. I'll take that!
