Under the shelf stuck in the back on top of some football blasters I found this little guy:When I went to the price-checker to see how much he cost, I got this readout:
*See sales associate*
In the checkout (with this and an Upper Deck pack from '07) my conversation with the sales associate went as follows:
Me: Hi, the price checker machine told me to ask you how much these cost.
Check out Lady: OK. (Scans packs several times, frowns) Hm.
Me: I got these from the card aisle.
Check out Lady: Let me get the manager and ask her about them. (Presses presumably magic manager summoner button)
Me and Checkout Lady: (Sounds of us waiting)
Checkout Lady: Let me go look. (leaves)
Shopper: (Starts stacking groceries behind me.)
Checkout Lady: (returns with sales associate #2) She says you can have both for $1.99.
Me: OK. (I push the thought out of my head that Target devotes the $1.59 repack box for packs like these.) I buy the cards.
So, without further ado, here we go:
#132 Ray Durham
#281 Chris Narveson RC
#7 Mickey Mantle-I'd be happier with this if I didn't know there were a zillion other Topps Mickey Mantle cards made over the last 6-7 years.#170 Chien-Ming Wang
#209 Jonathan Broxton
#224 Matt Thornton
#75 Jered Weaver
#156 Ryan Theriot
#135 Troy Tulowitzki RC (Sweet! I have the 60 Years of Topps parallel of this card, too!)
#94 Willy Taveras
#314 Andruw Jones (A Brave, nice)
#129 Aramis Ramirez
#206 Ben Sheets
#4 Bengie Molina
#119 Michael Cuddyer
#73 Moises Alou
#290 Matt Holliday
#187 Matt Cain
#207 Mark Mulder
#109 Billy Wagner. Nice card.
#189 Carl Crawford
So that's that. All Series 1 cards, like Topps did last year or two ago-I remember buying a dollar pack of 2010 Series One like this. The Tulowitzki was the "hit" of the pack-a little redemption for this $2 pack.
#NNO Suspicious-looking gum
What's the rule for gum? I see no expiration date anywhere on this. I'm assuming 4-5 year old gum is no good-?
