The other day I posted about a Wacky Wally World Blaster. What I did NOT mention is that within 25 miles of my house are 6 Wal-Marts, yep your read that right, SIX. 2.5 miles, 7, 11, 15, 23, and 25 miles.
After busting those 8 great packs, (working on at least 2 trades from that box, maybe a third) I got a really big itch. This time I went 7 miles down the road to that Wal-mart. She-bang, she-bang.. Ding ding ding ding ding (the register sounding off). This store was loaded with those $11.98 blasters. I mean loaded. Grabbed the 2013 A & G, 2012 Archives, 2012 Gypsy Queen, a 2013 Gypsy Queen, and 2 more 2013 Archives (I had such great luck with the last one and this was a different store, I figured I would need two). 6 blasters, and I didn't even sample all that was available. In lieu of the 2 2013 archives, I could have grabbed a 2013 Bowman, 2013 Bowman Platinum, or a couple of 2013 Topps all series. This shelf was jammed with boxes. So, how did I do? I did get some awesome cards, and you will see them ALL. Remember, If they ain't Braves, I will trade them (and if they are dupes will trade them too!)
First up the 1st of the two 2013 Archives, pack by pack with best pull per pack.
Easy winner here.
Was hard to call it between Ozzie and the Tall Boy.
Trout and the Gwynn insert.
A relic wins for sure, although I do like the bat barrel/slash turtleneck. That wraps or should I say unwraps box 1. Now to the second.
Not the greatest pack of the day, so I will split the best honors between Atlanta, LA, and the SP Williams.
Hey now I have two of this quad sticker to trade away (one from the previous pick up)
NOW, EVERYONE NO FIGHTING. I AM SURE SOMEONE WANTS THE BRYCE INSERT. This really was a no brainer from this pack.
You say how can I split it between Jackie and Evans, easy.... That is the second Jackie pull, and come on LOOK at the Evans card, crap look at young Darrell, and it is a SP to boot. EASY split.
Just kidding...... LOL (that is the second Lynn Tall Boy). Profar wins. HAHAHAHA, had ya didn't I?
Another tough call (I have 3 Babes). That unwraps up the 2013 Archives. I will say this, this set doesn't give out to many "mini collection" hits. Like the Weaver GRIP above. I think all in all I pulled about 4 or so out for other traders minis.
BOX 3: 2013 Gypsy Queen
Ooops, didn't crop that first one. Either way BEST pull the McCann Collision at the Plate! No the Trout is not gonna get this one. LOL.
I gotta give this one to Spahn.
SWEET pack! Going with Profar and I know Ted Williams certainly gets a split here.
The green mini
Splitting this with the Jeter insert and and the Spahn mini. (I can always use Jeters for my flea market buddy)
The Seaver mini.
Gotta go with the relic, sorry Reggie.
UMMM..........UMMM.. yeah, Nolan Ryan.
Next up the 2012 Gypsy Queen
Tough call, I'll go with Braun.
4 way tie. Cabrera, Schmidt, Stragell mini, and Kaline. Nice pack.
Very nice pack got 2 Braves, Robinson mini, Mays, anda Longoria. The best pull... Mays.
Going with the insert.
The Mays insert. Tough one as this was another great pack with Maris, Carew, Sandberg, and Upton too.
Next box... 2012 Archives
The Johnson card is a foil, soit makes the split with Hanson and Granderson
Tie Seaver and Killebrew
Normally I would just choose the relic, but I'm not so impressed with "bat" cards, that Pedroia 3D card is awesome, and heck let's throw hanley in the mix for best pull.
Olerud is a SP, Youk, and Tulo split it.
Easy one, Cal, and the Morgan SP.
1977 Stargell cloth sticker, cool.
This brings us to the sixth and final box: 2013 A & G
Gotta go with the insert
Picking the Miller (for my Miller PC) and the Sioux mini.
Your choice is as good as any, hehe.
Wow!. Splitting with the Civilizations, black mini, Pele, and Ziggy.
Tie Gwynn and the Rickey mini, although the superman card is a keeper.
Many might go with Cabrera, but TUT all the way for me.
