I still haven't bought any 2012 product from the Topps company-I almost bought some Heritage, but something about Evan Longoria's half-smiling mug on the front of the pack threw me off. Maybe I'll just go with a blaster sometime. Or Archives. Hmm.
To satisfy the urge to rip some wax, I went to what is probably the lowest-end spot you could go. I am referring of course to the Dollar Tree, that exquisite establishment that, besides baseball cards, hawks 1/2 rolls of duct tape and would-be bestselling books from 2007.
All for a dollar, or so the sign says.
I listed the whole entire pack to give an idea of how crash-and-burn it was. Aside from the Chipper, it was pretty gruesome, unless you happen to be a 1991 junk-wax-aholic, or perhaps a Giants fan. Oh well; two out of three wasn't bad. For three bucks and change, it was less than a gallon of gas. The Chipper made it all worth it, I think. Oh yeah-I also got a 2011 Topps pack with nothing worth mentioning of the 5 cards in the pack. (Read: Mets)
That's that-I'll try to get another low-rip post again; I think I may avoid the $1 Tree next time.
