A little Blast of Cards from the Red Circle store

After dropping my wife off at the airport for her trip to see her folks in San Diego I hit the Red Circle store to pick ups couple of things. His location never seems to have much in the way of Blasters-and I  usually don't buy any for the most part any who. However, I grabbed a rack pack of 2017 Donruss, a blaster of 2017 Stadium Club, and one of those value boxes of repacked packs. Will my winning streak continue?

For the rack pack I was able to add Stephen Piscotty's base and a Rizzo variation-not sure what the odds are on the Rizzo card-but I have only pulled a couple over a number of rack pack.

The repack box had a pack of 2015 Topps Series 1 and Series 2, a 2016 A&G, and a 2016 Bowman pack, plus a few loose cards-I was able to pull this auto 2015 Topps Series 2  James McCann Career High auto which are 1 in 600 packs, nice pull and he looks to be having a year much like last season.

Next the Stadium Club Blaster-pulled two Gold parallels which are 1 every 5 packs (odds beat)-Billy Wagner and Michael Lorenzen. Black foil Tommy Joseph and Sepia Warren Spahn-each 1 in every 8 packs (odds met).

Then there were the standard inserts-but then there was this-Carson Fulmer auto. This White Sox thrower doesn't look to be going much of anywhere-he is now with AAA Charlotte and when he was up with the Sox in 2016 he went 0-2 with an ERA of 8.49. However the odds  of pulling this are 1 in 118 packs (Odds Beat). 
Lastly, I picked up a box 2009 UD OPC Baseball because I love this retro set-and am slowing building. I have picked up a number of these with only a Game Used of some guy I already forgot about. However, this box yielded this 1 in every 216 packs (odds beat) OPC Signature Auto of Chase Headley.
