I made that vow in 2010 when my Update box yielded waaaay too many doubles, and I made that vow again when I discovered earlier this year that Topps were going to a 400 card set. Well, here I am- off on another of my crazy ideas.
A trip to Target for some Christmas shopping led to the card aisle (doesn't it always?) and an impulsive buy. Three Hangers.
I thought I'd hit a SP Variation on the Guerrero card. I didn't because there isn't one. But I did with the Heyward.
Pulling the Heyward variation took the sting out of not pulling a Correa. I eventually landed one in my final hanger.
To my surprise I did not have 1. Single. Duplicate. Not one. Out of three hangers. I about fell out of my chair after organizing them in numerical order. Unfortunately, the hangers averaged about nine inserts each; inserts which are the most boring, unimaginative pieces of crap I think I've ever seen. It's really too bad that Topps continues to put so many inserts in packs because they really do not add any value. When I can find them in dime boxes along with the common man... what's that tell you?
Anyway, I'm going to list the cards needed for completing the set. If anyone is looking to dump so, keep me in mind.
