Trip to the Card Shop

Hey everyone, Drew back here. Last week I stopped at my card store to pick up some supplies, which is by now the simplest excuse for wasting money at your store! So, I got a binder, some toploaders, penny sleeves, and 1 pack of 2010 Bowman, 2 packs of 2010 National Chicle, and 1 jumbo pack of Topps Series 2 2010. I also bought one card, which you see at the bottom of the post. In my packs... this is what I got...

2010 Bowman
- Ubaldo Jimenez
- Ian Kinsler
- Miguel Tejada
- Grady Sizemore 1993 Bowman
- Ryan Howard/Domonic Brown Bowman Expectations
- Yen-Wen Kuo Chrome
- C.J. Retherford Chrome
- Daniel Nava Prospect
- Gustavo Nunez Prospect
- Max Scherzer Gold

2010 National Chicle (2 Packs Combined)
- Brandon Inge
- Jonathan Sanchez
- Tobi Stoner RC
- Chris Carpenter
- Nate McLouth
- Mark Buehrle
- Zach Greinke
- Pee Wee Reese
- Stan Musial
- Alex Rios
- Mel Ott (non short print version)
- Ryne Sandberg
- Carlton Fisk
- Tim Wakefield
- Mariano Rivera National Chicle Back (PC)
- Yadier Molina Bazooka Back

2010 Topps Series 2 Jumbo
- Ton of Base

- Chris Johnson RC Gold /2010
- Justin Verlander Topps Attax (have the code if you want)
- Jason Varitek World Series History (mini throw up)
- Frank Robinson/Ryan Braun Legendary Lineage
- Cal Ripken Card Yo Mama Threw Out
- Ubaldo Jimenez 2020 Topps
- Lou Gehrig Turkey Red (PC)
- Curtis Granderson Peak Performance (PC)
- Lou Gehrig Vintage Legends (PC)
- Gary Carter Million Card Giveaway Redemption

So, overall, not too bad, but not great. The Bowman was pretty brutal, the Chicle was decent because of the Rivera National Chicle back (which are pointless oh by the way), and the Topps was pretty good. The Pujols was thrown in for free by the dude working at the shop, and it's for trade if anyone wants it. Anyone can use the Verlander code, and the gold is also for trade. Topps should seriously consider getting rid of the printed serial numbers, it's really cheap and stupid looking. Lastly, I like Topps 2020, except the Ubaldo has some seriously bad damage on it!

The Million Card Giveaway code unlocked this:

I'll take it! And I bought this at the store:

I could've met Orlando Cepeda if I wanted to back in August for $30, but I didn't really know him, and I still kind of don't. I like 2008 Legendary Cuts, and this is numbered out of 75. I also really like old school relics as do many other people, and here is a good example!

See Ya!


  1. Hey dude- Would you be willing to give up the Johnson #d card into the trade we are in the middle of? He is one of my favs.
