I picked these up, you know, for the sake of the blog. Yep, I'll keep telling myself that.
Remember how I told you guys about what you get per pack in retail packs and blasters? Well while I was there the other night when I opened the boxes, despite picking a few packs up of each I put all but 2 2010-2011 Panini Threads. However, yesterday when I was in the mall for another reason I walked back by the card aisle to see what was left.
There were roughly 6 2010-2011 Panini Threads blasters two days ago. Yesterday, there was only one left. I also forgot to make mention of the fact that the Panini Threads blasters have a coupon for $2 if you buy two Panini Threads products.
The funny part or sad as if may seem, is that the 4 packs of 2010 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects I had grabbed from the bottom of the box were in the exact same spot I left them in with nothing else moved... Kinda weird... I felt this was some sort of sign, and since I had a Target gift card from my birthday I grabbed the 4 packs to see if my feeling was right.
Here are the highlights of the 4 packs:
Sean Brady USA and Corey Seager USA
Drew Stubbs RC refractor
Jason Heyward RC
Carson Kelly GU /199
I also pulled 3 base Team USA cards: Sean Brady, Marc Brakeman, and Alex Bregman.
I wish there was more of a difference in the design of the different versions of Bowman, Bowman Chrome, and Bowman DPP. The first year cards I think should be universal, but it's like opening the same packs for 3 releases. It makes this one kind of a snooze by the time it gets released because you have seen the cards so many times already.
Anyone pull a cool auto from retail? Hobby? (Retail boxes state one auto and one relic per box.)
