Anyone out investigating?

Last night I decided to go to another Target and see what was going on there, and if they had some 2010 Toppsor anything else leaked. Turns out they had nothing. Not even an empty gravity box. Something tells me that these "early releases" are sent to select Target's and perhaps on purpose. Last year the exact same thing happened, the one closer to where I live had stuff but not the other one. Also, no blasters to be seen. Maybe Topps leaks random retail to add to the hype and anticipation of a new set coming out.

I ended up back at the Target that has had them for days, and well there were still packs left. Did I buy any more? Maaaaayyyybeeee...... did I get any cool inserts?! Well, you'll have to wait and see.

Has anyone else been out looking for these things? Anyone locate a blaster? Though I am sure if someone found blasters I would have heard about it by now. Ohhh even better..... any local hobby shops got their boxes early?

Let me know if anything interesting has popped up in your town this way I have something to procrastinate studying for tomorrow and during the week ;)

  1. I wasted $6 on three loose packs at Target today -- the closest I came to a card that I actually wanted was a History of the Game insert showing the Tokyo Dome from the Mets/Cubs 2000 season opener.

    Blasters are out in some places -- White Sox cards found one. http://whitesoxcards.blogspot.com/2010/01/first-white-sox-card-of-2010.html

    The retro parallels are back.

  3. Nothing in the the vast wasteland where I live. But, yes, White Sox Cards found blasters, but it's not good news.

  4. There isn't a Target in my area -- I live in eastern Arizona where the towns are pretty far apart. The closest Target is Flagstaff (120 miles from my town). I checked the nearest Wal Mart (20 miles from my town) and there weren't any there.

  5. The Targets near my house and my work has the double-wide gravity feed box but no blasters. Atlanta Sports Cards is closed for the weekend because they are at the Tri-Star show in Houston. Nothing at Champion Sports cards as of last thursday.

  9. I went searching yesterday.

    Local Wal-Mart had nothing. Target had this biiig box of Topps 2010 but it wasn't open. I asked an employee if they where available to buy and she opened the box. I bought two packs.

  11. Stopped by a target but didn't see any, and my shop said not till next week. Oh well, I've got a couple boxes on order anyway so hopefully I can get to ripping in another week, week and a half.

  12. I went to Target again tonight hoping they got a shipment of blasters since I guess I'm off the wagon, but nothing. Stay tuned for some loot from last night.
