In a blog from last week I told everyone that my local K-Mart had a big sale on 2008 products, and that I had picked up among other things a 2008 Goudey blaster for $10.99. Since my pillowcases and blanket are still in the dryer I decided to break it because I can't go to bed anyway. I decided to see if I could tell if any packs felt differently than others so if I did I could save that pack for last. They all felt exactly the same to me, what do I know.
Here is what I ended up with (just highlighting the better cards):
2 Yankee Stadium Legacy cards
Sport Royalty Magic Johnson (black back), Steve Carlton (black back), James K. Polk (black back), and Ichiro (green back)
Mini Sport Royalty Jack Nicklaus (Red back), Brooks Robinson mini (red back), Wayne Gretzky Hit Parade of Champions
and....... drumroll please.........
1934 Goudey Original Buyback of Baxter Jordan of the Boston Braves.
My expectations of this blaster were not very high, I figured maybe a GU card at most and bought it mostly for Yankee Stadium Legacy and the chance at an auto. Not in a million years would I have expected to pull a buyback that only came one per case (at least that's what I remember when we opened ours). I'm happy even though I have no idea who he is.
I'm not really sure what I plan on doing with all these base cards since I don't need any of them. I was thinking of sending them out for TTM's when I decide to actual follow through on sending any, or maybe I'll trade some for cards I want.
I do know that I now desperately want to go back to K-Mart, but lightning doesn't strike the same place twice which is why the last Heritage blaster I bought was the one with the Mat Gamel auto /60.
