The Retail King Strikes Again — Was this guy better than Mike Trout? NOW WITH SCAN!
Hey guys, I went into my LT today (that's Local Target, LOL) and saw that they had those big, cardboard boxes with the yellow police tape on top of a flatbed cart next to the card aisle.

That could mean only one thing ... new cards!

So the guy opened them up for me and I grabbed a sealed 24-pack box of Topps Series 2.

(That's right, pack searchers, you can search THIS right here!)

About 2/3 of the way through the box I pulled this monster ...

Willie Mays Chasing History relic, #73/99.

I'm not sure if it's considered the regular relic (1:134 packs) or the gold version (1:810 packs), but definitely not bad for one box.

I'm guessing it's the gold because it's numbered, but either way I'm happy with it.

Nice pull! Post that scan when you get a chance. Love to see it.

They are your cards, if you want to put fingerprints all over the chromes, you should do that....just don't send them to me in a trade. All my cards are clean and I expect the same in return. Bad traders need not apply.

In answer to your question ... Yes! No doubt about it!
Congrats on another great retail pull, RJ!

Topps should send me Flowers and Candy this Valentine's Day, because they've been screwing me pretty regularly throughout the year. Smile

Thanks man ... I just have to let the office clear out so I can use the scanner, LOL.

All in all it was a fun break ... pulled both Trout base cards for my PC, a Harper insert (Making Their Marks or whatever it's called), a couple of Cabrera inserts for my Tigers PC, as well as the "big four" rookies in this release ... Gattis, Bradley Jr. (same pack, LOL), Fernandez and Ryu.

Willie mays is probably one of the top 5 greatest baseball players of all time so take a guess what my answer would be Smile

Looking to complete the 2013 Archives Mets fan favorite Au's as I only need Ron Darling! Also new project for 2014: Topps Gypsy Queen set base (including minis). Please note that if you have less than 15 trades, I ask that you send first.

Yes sir, it's called "drawing the readers in," LOL ... I'm out here in the Bay Area, so this is definitely one of my signature pulls.

I'm too young to remember him, but there are plenty of folks around here that idolize the man.

Who's No. 4, Trout? LOL

Yes, the question is definitely tongue in cheek.

You know, I don't believe so ... Now that I've traded with you, Joe and Aaron a bunch of times, any Yankees, Phillies and Braun/Brewers I pull usually register in my mind, and I don't recall that this time.

But I will check again, I busted the 24 packs in like 15 minutes, LOL.

I did pull a dupe of a Jeter Gallery of Heroes out of Archives the other day.

This weekend I'm going to have the house to myself and I've got about six weeks worth of wax to sort through, so I'll pull all the "bait" and bring it in.
Bump for scan added, enjoy! RJ

It's all good, man ... basically if you did the Trout USA, the Wallace blue sparkle and the Prince SP that would probably do it.

Just counter it back to me and we can go from there sorry for the confusion, LOL.
