This Week in Cardboarding

Welcome to This Week in Cardboarding. This week I went with a blaster of Topps Update from Wally World, so I get two packs of the black variants along with a manufactured patch. Well I tried scanning but the names on the cards weren't visible so I went back to the photo style for these uncooperative little buggers. Here is what I got:

Pack 1
Carlton dup insert but still nice
LaPorta rookie :)

Pack 2

Crawford toppstown player collector help

Pack 3

cy young winner Grienke

Pack 4

two Rays and a turkey insert - nice pack
another CC for player collection :)

Pack 5

Wade Boggs insert
Pack 6

haren gold

Pack 7

nice pair of pitchers with johan and tim

Pack 8

hill gold - will he repeat or won't he?
i think he will

Pack 9

pujols propaganda dup
love these cards just wish it wasn't the only one i had
anyone want my dup pujols?

Pack 10

The pack of the blaster for me
thanks to a Price turkey

Pack 11

Who wants it? Not my cup of tea

Overall a fun blaster, definitely got a Rays fix. Some nice gold inserts, two turkey cards and some nice Wal-mart exclusive cards. I am glad they went to a two pack format, instead of a whole blaster, but if your a completest set collector, I am sure your not. Thanks again for checking out This Week in Cardboarding.

Some cool cards, I have some trade interests that I'll email you.

It didn't seem like you had any cards in there where the foil lettering was missing, did you? Cause I bought a couple packs the other day and about half of the cards have no foil lettering! weird.

no foil missing just the scanner wasn't picking up the names for some reason
