I stopped off at Target last night to pick up a package of binder sheets for the 2013 Topps set I'm working on. How frustrating is it that they sell 35 sheet packs that hold 315 cards when each series is 330 cards? Reminds me of this old clip:
But it's not that big of a deal because its not like I won't use them eventually. This particular Target has a pretty big card section but its a little out of the way so I don't go very often. I took a gander but it was mostly stuff I didn't need or want. I'm not going to buy blasters or packs of sets I have completed or am fairly near completion. Lots of leftover stuff from last year and mostly still full price. But then I saw this:
|2012 A&G blaster|
|Some minis (look like standard backs to me)|
|Two of these in the same blaster? Can't spot a difference on backs either...|
|Some other random stuff...|
|More minis, standard backs|
|Some kind of border variation|
|Another black(?) border.|
|Did get a bunch of Rookies. Are those still a thing?|
|Nolan Ryan Sketches|
|What's in a Name?|
I guess this is the highlight of the box. A mini red back Alex Rios hand numbered 9/25. This one is already on its way to JediJeff. Everything else is available.
Not a single Cubs card, even among the base. Oh wait, do these count? Blerg.
|Next time I see A&G, it'll get this reaction from me, discounted or not!|
