They have an outside vendor - Excell Marketing (I believe that's what it's called) - that comes in and does it for them - kind of like the greeting cards and magazines. I'm not sure how other retailers do it, but if you look at a Target or Walmart receipt it usually rings up as Excell misc. or something similar. It could be a regional thing as well, but I know that's how it works in the MN, SD, Wisc. area.

Also only hit on one Bryce Harper, but have 10 Pujols and Ichiro. There's a couple other guys I haven't pulled that I've had to trade for as well.
In terms of the autos, my nemesis has been Dillon Maples. I'd pulled one of his from a blaster and one from a rack pack. The other day I found the $5.99 rack packs at Target, opened it, saw the auto and it just happened to be Maples.
