I went to Target today to get a Brita pitcher since I am trying to stop using plastic water bottles, and stop drinking diet soda (might not happen right away). My last stop was my "office" as I call it since I spend so much time in that aisle thinking. I discovered they had 2 2009 Goudey blasters. Since my mom picked the last one I got, I had her pick this one as well. I figured maybe she will pick another good blaster since I usually get air when I pick them.
Here is how it went down:
Jason Varitek (of course, it had to start out with one of "them")
Sport Royalty Adrian Peterson
Troy (I don't autograph TTM cards for Lucy) Tulowitzki
4-in 1 Goudey Hamilton, Morneau, Fielder, Howard
Josh Hamilton (he's ready for his journey to Canada to see his friend Trish)
Cole Hamels (Hey Sooooooz)
Ken Griffey Jr.
Curt Schilling (I mean really, how on Earth is he in this set?)
4-in 1 Goudey Matsuzaka, Beckett, Masterson, Papelbon (4 times the hatred!)
UD Retrospective Wayne Gretzky
Ryan Doumit (Jeff will give you a good home)
Jed Lowrie (snarl)
David Ortiz (double snarl. Ron will love you all)
Goudey Mini Cole Hamels (I like the mini cards, though the sit oddly in my binder)
Roy Halladay (Hey Duane!)
Pack 6 (nice)
Goudey Mini John Lackey
Goudey Heads Up Lance Berkman
Joba Chamberlain (not trading or giving away until I have a double)
Pat (the bat) Burrell
Pack 7 (The Yankee pack)
Pack 8 (mini mojo!!)
Jason Bay (snarl)
Goudey Mini black border C.C. Sabathia serial numbered 04/21
Goudey 4-in 1 Chamberlain, Harden, Verlander, Lincecum (one of my favorites in the box, also not for trade)
This was definitely a fun blaster. The only problem I noticed with the cards (aside from the crude drawings or whatever they are) is that the first card in each pack had minor damage to the upper left of the card. There looks like s slight indentation on each of the first cards. I don't mind the drawing or design, I expected it to be a little worse from seeing them on other blogs and eBay. They are by far worse looking than last years. I would have liked them more if they used the player depictions from last year on this years design.
Even though there was no Pujols or Jeter card in the box, I did get 2 Joba cards and a few other Yankees so I'm pretty happy. I also drank a glass of my filtered water while typing this (win win). There are a great number of these that will end up in my binders, which I will probably work on at some point tonight or tomorrow along with putting my Heritage in binders.
P.S. If anyone opened some Goudey and got and Pujols cards, let me know.
