The other Goudey blaster

If you recall in the previous Goudey blaster post I said Target had 2 blasters. If you thought I left one there, you don't know me that well. One thing I checked for was the upper left on the first card in each pack, and just as it was in the previous blaster it was damaged here as well. I also tried to find out the odds of hits in the retail packs/blasters, but there was no information on the wrappers. No one cares about this part so here is what I got (my scanner crops things all the time, but the cards are centered for the most part):

Phil Hughes (I still like him regardless of him mailing it in)
Wade LeBlanc
Mike Aviles

Between two blasters I think I have almost, if not the whole team set for the Red Sox. Fun for Section 36, not so much for me. The inserts seem to fall one per pack, sometimes 2 per pack so that makes these fun to open (even if they are 4-in one cards of the enemy). No idea what I am going to do with the cards I don't want out of here yet, but I am sure I will acquire more in the future. Anyone have any Pujols from the Goudey to trade?


  1. Geez...this Target you're going to is the nexus of hits in retail. Maybe they know you shop there LOL =)

  2. I've got that Yankee 4-in-1 in blue if you're interested.

  3. I sure am interested. I'll e-mail you.

  4. I've got a Pujols Heads Up that is looking for a good home.

  5. Once again, I love the player selection on the 4-players.

  6. Glad you like them, Ron. They will be in your mailbox in no time.

  7. EdS- I ended up picking the Heads Up on eBay, though that was 11 days ago and I am still waiting for it... I will frantically e-mail you if I never see the card, lol.

  8. In my opinion Goudey is in dire need of a talented artist who can make the cards come alive. Can you imagine this ?

  9. What about my prize for guessing correctly on your other collection??? That Joba 4-card would be nice??!!
