I can almost see half of you shaking your head that I even purchased Topps Attax cards, but hear me out. When Sooz and I went to pick up the case of Gypsy Queen we were looking at the other packs of stuff. Before we started ripping through packs of Gypsy Queen I shuffled through a box of the Topps Attax rack packs, where you can see one card through a window on the bottom pack. That's when I decided I needed at least one pack of the stuff.
I found a lil Robbie Cano (don't ya know) towards the bottom of the box, right next to a lil Derek Jeter pack. So I took Robbie and Sooz took Jeter, and all was right in the world again.
While I normally don't care for Topps Attax cards, this year they did something a little different which I did like. They look more like game playing cards to me than in years past. They kind of resemble Magic type cards in a way. The corners are rounded, the inserts have a hologram-type foil only on the picture, while the game play info is reserved to the bottom. I like that they look more like game play cards for kids rather than half baseball card and half game card. The rack packs also contained a little game board and instructions.
I know, I know what did you get and what do they look like? So here is what was in my rack pack:
(Side note: my scanner tends to crop things, so some of the cards don't look rounded, but you can see in the scans of 9 cards that they are. Even the Topps Town in the packs are rounded.)
Target has rack packs and packs right now, the rack packs are $3.99 and the packs are $1.99 in case you want to run out and play today.
