So yesterday I couldn't hold out any more waiting for the case so when I went to get my iPod (not) fixed I stopped in Target... They were stocked up full since no one was out yesterday or today really. Blasters, rack packs, and loose packs. I wasn't really interested in buying a blaster considering the break is coming up, so I grabbed some packs and one rack pack.
Clearly, the time to hit Target is after a snow storm because everything was untouched and clean in the card aisle. I grabbed my stuff and headed to the Apple store, wher I won't lie, I opened all the loose packs while I waited. I couldn't take the anticipation any longer. I'm always weary of doing such things when still near the store because I feel like I will just go back and buy more since they are all open. So I saved the rack pack for funsies when I got home (grumpy because my iPod needs to be replaced AGAIN).
I scanned the inserts and "mojo" Mets and skipped the base stuff except the rookies. Take a look, I think I did pretty well though my buddy at the shop will end up with the good stuff.

There are other boring cards, no Diamond Sparkle cards in the packs. I bet they are only in the hobby stuff.
So the break will go on later today, and I am really psyched for the break. I think most of the participants are eagerly awaiting the live break. Again, please check out the post from last night about the break time. I will post a link to the break on the blog so if you aren't on Twitter you will be able to get there.
