I want to say I went to Target simply to buy toilet paper and hand soap, but CVS is much closer and I get reward bucks there. Obviously, I had other reasons for going to Target.
I don't think I would have bought anything either. Really, I just like looking.
But I couldn't help myself when I saw a new packaged product on the shelf:
2011 Topps Value Box. $14.99. Sold.
- One of three exclusive chrome refractors (Either Mickey Mantle, Jackie Robinson or Babe Ruth)
- Five packs of Topps Series 1
- Two hobby packs of Heritage
- Two Diamond Anniversary giveaway cards
Here are some of the goodies from Heritage (I can never seem to pull my own guys).
And, lucky me, I got a double of this. I'm sure the dog would love a new chew toy.
Here are some of the cooler inserts from the Topps packs.
I've grown a new respect for these History of Topps cards. While they are not the prettiest of cards, I like the idea of Topps informing collectors on the history of baseball. In Series 2, it has Before They Were Topps inserts.
What's also fun about opening these packs is that even though they are Series 1 from this year, there are still some fun cards you can find.
The exclusive chrome refractors are very nice. I like the design a lot. Out of three, I also got the player I wanted most.
There was a nice little surprise in the box: A collector's guide for 2011 Topps products. I haven't read it yet, but I fully intend on going through this and reviewing the guide.
