Has anyone seen one of these before?
I found this puppy at Walmart today. This is the first thing I've bought that has a guaranteed game-used card in it. [EDIT: It's actually the second thing. I forgot Topps started putting GU cards in boxes of '08 Series 2.] I know most of them aren't worth much and you don't know if the person on the card actually wore/used what's embedded in the card, but I still think they're cool. I don't have too many. Let's see what's inside, shall we?
The package advertised 3 packs of cards, but there were 4 in the pack. Nice! It's the typical assortment of new junk wax you'll find in any of the Legends repacks. Here's what I got:
2007 Topps Opening Day
2007 Upper Deck Series 1
2006 Fleer Ultra
Mark Prior Strikeout Kings
Michael Young Gold Medallion
2006 Upper Deck Series 2
Khalil Greene checklist
Derek Jeter Play Ball!
And now, the moment you've all been waiting for, the GAME-USED CARD!
Hrbie! All right! Gotta love that powder blue.
Personally, I'd probably buy another one of these, but I wouldn't make it a habit. That's what A&G is for.
