Yesterday I took a trip to Target for no reason other than to see if they had chrome and return the bag full of empty water bottles in my trunk. I figured if they have 2011 Chrome, I can use some of the return money to buy some packs and if not I'll buy coffee. Either way I was going to win.
As luck would have it they had cards. They only had rack packs though, no blasters and no loose packs. I wouldn't have bought loose packs anyway when you can get the rack pack and get 3 orange cards. I took the 10 or so rack packs off the rack, and picked two that I wanted and checked out. I didn't feel like taking the first two for whatever reason, and it worked out to my advantage.
Here are the cards from rack pack #1:
So after I finished opening this rack pack I seriously debated not even opening the other one because it just didn't do anything for me. Then I realized that I will inevitably buy another rack pack some other time if I don't just get it out of my system now- so I opened the other one.
Rack pack #2:
The two Pujols cards were in the SAME pack and back to back! I win.
Clearly had I opened the second rack pack first, I wouldn't have hesitated to keep going and open the next.
While I didn't get any orange cards that I want, I am very happy with the two Pujols cards. Hopefully I can trade my orange cards for Cano and Pujols orange if anyone is interested.
I know this is going to sound crazy but has anyone else noticed that these cards always smell like pancake syrup? Every year they smell like that, or maybe I am just weird...
