I'm going to get ripped for this post. I'm aware it's going to happen as I write this.
Here's my story:
I went to Target and picked up a $30 tin of 2009 Sweet Spot, my second of the year. The first one I didn't too terribly. I didn't get many Yankee base cards, but I didn't hate the hit.
Then, I did a group Twitter break with Voice of the Collector. I hated the card I got there. It was so bad not even the Houston collector wanted it.
I thought I would try my luck a third time. Third time's a charm ... heh. Well, I did get lucky. I smashed the odds that state there is supposed to be one jersey or autograph per tin.
So, I opened the first pack and saw a Derek Jeter base card on top. Not a bad way to start.
I got the hit in the first pack:
Then, I thought, I don't think the UD 20th anniversary game-used cards are real hits. I think they are extras. So, I probably have another.
Next pack a Joba Chamberlain base on top. Cool.
Then, this hit:
I open the third pack and peek at the card in the middle. I see it's another jersey. All I'm thinking to myself is "Wow. I can't believe I got three jersey cards."
I look at the card:
Yet, after all that I felt incredibly deflated. I smashed the odds and two out of three cards were Red Sox. The third was from a sport I haven't watched in five years, at least. RED SOX!!
There ya go. I almost wished I saved the money from that tin.
Now, go ahead and rip me.
