It's and there's still pack searchers at Target.

 Cards are back! Baseball is almost back! So yeah found some 2018 Topps last Tuesday a day early.


I didn't pull this card, Tony L of Off Hiatus sent it to me but I'll get there eventually. 


When I pulled up to Target with my Publix fried chicken meal ready to be destroyed in the food court. I saw this creeper searching packs and knew there had to be new cards so I grabbed 4 fresh ones. 


Nothing to great in there, trust me. That might be the only 8 dollars I spend on flagship this year. I paid 5 bucks for a team set on EBay then Tony sent me a whole other one plus that gloriously shining Albies RC shown above. 



I still scour EBay occasionally and scored my first Kyle Wright AUTO for about 6 bucks. 


Hit up the local monthly card show at the flea market and scooped up my first sampling of Topps Fire out of a 5/$1 box from my pal Whitey.


Ooh


Ahhh


My favorite player as a kid is a Hall of Famer. I'm officially old. 


Man this is almost a cool card but Donruss sucks so so bad.


Picked up this Dansby auto for ten. Crazy how far prices came down after a rough rookie campaign. 



I also picked up a couple hundred 2015/16/17 Stadium Club for cheap there as I am building those 3 sets. I need to finish up my want lists for those, if anyone has any for trade or needs any let me know as I have a lot of extras.

  1. Growing up, Chipper was one my favorite non-Cubs, as well. When he retired, it felt like so too was my youth. Regardless, Mr. Jones will always hold a special place in my heart as I ended up with tickets to his last game at Wrigley Field and the person I took with me to that contest ended up being my lovely wife! For that reason, Chipper brings a smile to both of our faces!

  2. The funny thing with the pack searching in Series 1 is that the parallels are probably more sought after than some Josh Harrison jersey card. I think some of these people are still stuck in 2003. Back during this time I remember seeing a guy with a portable scale.

  3. My favorite player as a kid was Rickey Henderson who is 14 years older than Chipper. I'm officially hella old.
