Insane retail success!!!
So this morning I decided to go on the hunt for some GQ retail and since the stores closest to me never seem to put anything out early I went about 15 miles south to a super Target to try my luck there. When I got to the card section I was disappointed to see they didn't have any either. So with a sigh I grabbed the last two rack packs of Heritage and two blasters.

I started with the racks and did not pull a single SP or insert. Best card was a Middlebrooks base card. Feeling like I probably wasted my money I move onto the blasters. The first pack I open made me feel much better when I see this-

So this is a refractor hot box, I figured with the Trout I probably won't get anything much better but the second pack was this-

Two of the better refractors in the set! After this I figure everything else is just bonus but when I opened the third pack I get a nice red surprise.

And as I shuffled to the Harper red I see something different peaking out directly behind it-

This has got to be my absolutely best pull of my entire life. I still have the biggest grin on my face and am also kind of faced with a dilemma, I don't know if I should sell this or redeem it and add it to my collection. I have been wanting a Koufax auto for years so I think I am leaning towards keeping it. The money this will bring is tempting though.

Here is the rest of the score from this blaster-

And the second blaster wasn't too bad either.

Awesome pulls man! I was really hoping to hear all of the bad pulls from retail so I could keep my pack busting addiction in check, but it is going to be hard hearing of pulls like this!
