I was somewhat peeved to see there were only 14 cards in the rack. I was almost certain there were 15 or 16 last year. This means for pure card bulk, blasters are the way to go. Here's the breakdown of packs/cards/$$$ if you're interested.
7 retail packs - 56 cards - $21+tax
4 Racks - 56 cards - $20+tax
1 blaster - 8 packs - 64 cards - $20+tax
This is assuming that Topps doesn't pull some shenanigans like putting 7 packs plus some ManuPatchFractor Ruth card in the blaster instead of 8 packs.
I got four packs. Two at one Target, two at another. Both times I actually had a legitimate reason for going and wasn't just scrounging for cards. That is, if you consider soap and diapers legitimate. I'm going to show off the four best cards from each of the four packs just because I'm in a four kind of mood. Here's pack one, in order of coolness.
The cover model. I'd really like the Phillies if they weren't beating the hell out of my Braves all the time.
Everyone in Atlanta is all like GRAAAAR idiot Frank Wren traded Javy Vazquez for Melky Cabrera. No he didn't. HE traded Javy for Melky, a relief pitcher, the Yankees' best pitching prospect AND enough payroll room to sign Tim Hudson for three more years. Melky ain't a bad player either, he'll do well in his platoon role with Diaz. What I'm tring to say is I got his card in an airbrushed Braves uni and I'm happy about this.
Then & Now Luis Aparicio & Jacoby Ellsbury
A pair of mismatched Sox here. Not totally random though, they both led baseball in stolen bases in their respective year. Historically speaking, throughout the entire Topps Heritage run this is my favorite insert set. Not a bad design this year either.
Shane Victorino All Star SP
Why do I like Shane Victorino? He tried to murder Brian McCann for Pete's sake, normally I'd swear eternal revenge on someone for doing that. I dunno, I guess it's because the guy has impressed me the way he absolutely ruins the Braves every time they face off. I had a Phillies bonanza tosay too, 7 of 56 cards had a Phil on it.
