There is always a guy at the show who has boxes for sale-usually always new stuff that a I am either not buying because of $$ or because it doesn't interest me. Alas, this time he had three boxes of 2009 Topps T-206 which I later discovered were rack packs-but for $24 I thought maybe I should get one-or all three. I decided on just the one and as you will read shortly this wasn't a good choice. So what did the box provide? First, let me say when I opened it up and found it was a rack pack box I was disappointed, but for about the price of a blaster, how could I be?
First up, the full size variations-4 of the best hitters ever including a Redbird.
A mini Cycle back #ed to 99. Mike Cameron and SP Mini of Kawakami one per 20 packs, which was going to Fuji but I might just buy another box and try and build a set.
A few Redbirds-including Yadi, David Freese, Colby Rasmus type A, all of which I have, Albert Pujols type A, the regular Mize version, and Matt Holliday which I didn't.
A look at both types of Colby, A & B
And a St. Louis Brown, when I buy Cardinals' lots I always get a few Brownies-now I even look for them, so they get filed in our Redbird's boxes.
So remember when I said I should have bought the other two boxes? Why should I have bought the other two you ask?
