A trip out to the big box store side of town included a trip into the Walmart and the Dollarama, which of course also included a trip to the card areas of the store. So, among the actual reasons for the trip, I also picked up a pair of surprise boxes, a 35 for $3.00 baseball hanger pack from Walmart, and one of those Best of 2012 boxes. All in all, I'm pretty happy with the goodies from these purchases. The latter landed me an autograph (albeit an unspectacular one) and a very nice parallel. I'll get to the surprise box fun tomorrow and the Best of 2012 stuff on Sunday and into the week. For now, I'll post some of the 35 pulled from the hanger pack.
The rest of the cards lined up like this:
1988 Donruss - 3
1988 Topps - 2
1990 Donruss - 2
2006 Fleer - 13
2006 Topps Update - 7
2007 Yankees Team Set - 7
That's about 27 fewer cards from the junk wax era that I was expecting. Yet, I was still able to enjoy some of those as well.
As I was going through the pack, I did notice that there were a lot of 2007 Yankees cards coming up in a row. Curiousity got the best of me and I flipped that cards over to see the NYY Yankees # on the back, indicating they were glommed from a team set. That's something you really don't find much of in repack land.
The bulk of the rest was the Fleer. Speaking of guys who'll be debuting with the Jays this year:
