Yesterday I wandered over to the card shop because I needed some more boxes to pack up the last of the 2011 Topps Jumbo case (I still need to know who had the Marlins and Phillies!) and I was telling Dave how we never got our redemption from the case. He took pity on my sadness and gave me a pack that they were sent.
He was supposed to give them to people who threw out their wrappers and didn't know, but I opened about 20 packs in the store one day and left the wrappers because I didn't care. Clearly it worked out in my favor anyway since I still got a pack AND I am STILL waiting for the packs form our case.
I heard that Topps got out all the remaining redemption for the 2010 Bowman Chrome on Friday, so we shall see. I have already e-mailed someone at Topps and got a contact person in case we do not get them this week.
Who wants to see what was in my pack? OK, settle down.
Slade Heathcott (yay)
There was also an Anthony Rizzo card in the pack, but I left it at the shop for the Woodpecker (Dan) since I think he was collecting him. I would have also left that Mets dude there for him also but I didn't notice it until I scanned the cards.
Did anyone get these packs back and pull an auto? More importantly, did anyone get these back and pull a J.R. Murphy card? I feel like I have a nice little starter collection of Murphy going so I'd be inclined to trade for a card of his.
For the record, I like these cards better in black borders than the white.
