Flea Market Finds part 4



I lucked out at the flea market last weekend and found an open box of Finest with individual packs for sale. The only place I found single packs last year was at a shop that was selling them for $12.50 a pop. I found this one for much less, although I'm not going to deny it's probably the most I'll spend on a pack this year.

To commemorate the find (and since I had the house to myself this weekend) I broke out the webcam, videoed the pack rip and stuck it on YouTube. There's a weird hum in the video that I can't figure out how to get rid of and it's not exactly action packed, but hey, I'm not Tom the Ripper here. I can safely say I've seen worse on YouTube.

A couple of packs were missing from the mini box so I figured the patch was already gone and took the one in back. I ended up being pleasantly surprised...



Card scans will be up on A Pack To Be Named Later sometime tonight.

I'm running a weekly baseball contest over at Traded Sets that includes a huge jackpot, now totaling 20 unopened packs and more.

I am not sure I buy it...

This dude seems so much more emotional than the original spock.
