Occasionally, I'll do a big time splurge and shell out a few bucks for the packs of the new stuff. Rarely do I bother to make even the minutest effort to finish the set. But it can be refreshing to rip open a new pack. I can judge how much I'll enjoy a pack my the first card I see.
New O-Pee-Chee? Kyle Turris rocking the Senators heritage jersey? WIN!
New Score? Norris Trophy winner Erik Karlsson, also in a heritage jersey? YES!
New Topps football? An airbrushed/photochopped Tim Tebow? Ugh. And that was before this weekend's Bills/Jets game.
