On Sunday I was doing some shopping at Target looking for some essentials like shaving cream and dog food. In my search I meandered over to the Baseball card aisle and couldn't stop myself from taking a long look. These days I rarely buy and open a box of modern issued cards. I don't know why that is. Maybe the old thrill that used to exist is gone. Who knows, but for some reason I had that tingling feeling in hands last night. So, I gave in to my regressed childhood desired and found a mini box (called a "blaster" in today's parlance) of 5 packs of 2008 Topps Series 1 packs on sale for $4.99. Check out my video box break below.
See the video on YouTube here.
How screwed up is that. Topps must have wanted to piss off fans of both Boston and New York.
Below are 2 of the bonus cards that are made to resemble the vintage T-205 set from the early part of the 20th century.
Here are the 3 Manny cards I pulled.
Here are the Dodgers I got- Raffy Furcal, Brad Penny and a insert of Russell Martin. Below is the back of the Year In Review card of Russell Martin.
