Had the Itch - 22 A&G hobby packs and tons of retail - Def Mojo! - DonnieBBall23 - 09-01-2011 11:59 PM

It's been a crappy week, so to cheer myself up I picked up some wax to bust. Due to the flooding around here, i've had to take some diff ways to and from work. I passed collectibles shop I never heard of and checked it out. I walk in to find literally 50 people sitting at tables playin all different card games, from D&D to Magic. It was some scene, however they did have a small area w/ sports cards. Not much new stuff and crazy prices($140 for 2011 for a ser 2 jumbo box!), anyways I noticed an open A&G box w/ only 2 packs missing. Price? 5.99 a pack! I asked if he could do the 22 packs for hundo, he said 110($5/pack), I took it, I had the itch. So after tax, $118 for 22 packs, I was sure one of the hits were gone, hopefully not 2. I also noticed a KMart I've never been to and had a KM gift card I've had burnin a hole in my wallet(my KMart blows). They had a decent card section and i went to town. All together picked up $235 worth of cards, with my giftcard and 10% off, $112 spent.

The retail haul(baseball) - 3 2011 topps ser 2 racks, 2 Lineage blasters and 2 rack packs, 1 2011 bowman plat retail box(16 packs) and 3 rack packs, 11 2010 UD loose packs for $1.50, 2 2011 A&G blasters and 3 racks, and finally 3 2011 bowman rack packs I couldn't beliieve they still had.

You really scored on those Bowman cards. A&G really sucks IMO.

It's all a matter of taste... I really don't like that Bowman Platinum product. It's garbage.
