Let's recap yesterday in the world of my favourite teams. The Senators were eliminated from the playoffs. Ditto the Raptors. The Blue Jays were swept out of Tampa and the Mets lost yet another Subway Series series. I'm sure Mario Williams probably stepped on a rusty nail as well, but that hasn't hit the newswire yet.
So. what better way to cure the sporting blues than by busting some retail. I was fairly certain I'd be opening some hockey rack pack from Walmart, and then I noticed this on the shelves:
I did chuckle at the "exclusive pearl parallel cards" promised. I just though they were white framed parallels. Mainly, because it made me think of a Simpsons-ism.
Lisa: I'd like 25 copies on goldenrod...25 on canary...25 on saffron...and 25 on paella.
Clerk: OK. 100 yellow.
Proving there is a Simpsons quote for any occasion.
But, now I've got some cards to show off.
And now, the inserts!
I'm still not too sure what my set builder set is going to be this year. If the SP portion of Archives isn't too daunting, I'll try that. If not, I can see picking up a box or two of these and working on this one.
