Retail Luck Continues!! - ThomasAA23 - 07-08-2011 12:10 PM

I have been pretty lucky with retail so far this year. I have pulled a bunch of autos and a couple sparkle cards. I picked up one jumbo pack of Topps Series 2 today at Wal-Mart and got my first GU card from retail!

I totally agree. Especially 2011 Topps Series 1 and 2. They've been really nice to me this year (three "sparkle" cards, one auto, two game used, several short prints, etc).

Nice pull!

I think it's funny how you can get GU/Auto from 2011 retail packs, but not the blasters. It's like encouraging the pack searchers

Wow, I didn't even know that. I just kind of assumed the blasters and retail were the same. Is it the rack packs you are pulling these out of?

i can use the swisher if its for trade.

way to go. pulling a gu out of a retail pack is some good luck indeed.

Well, you can a HOF Buyback Auto but it's 1:95,000 odds, and that's the only auto/GU you can get in blasters (2011 Topps Series 1/2 blasters)

It's not for trade yet buddy, I'm going to hold on to it for now

I had no luck with retail jumbos in the last 2 years other than 1 SP, bought a bunch when hobby series 1 got out of hand, but had good luck with the series 2 10 dollar 72 card boxes, bought 5 total and pulled a Wade LeBlanc auto, David Ortiz GU, Mike Schmidt SP, and Jimmie Foxx diamond anniversary parallel. Pretty darn good for 10 bucks a box, though I havent pulled a sparkle from hobby or retail.

Not bad for retail
