The wife and I had to get some grocery shopping done today, so I'm going to stock up on several packs so I can hopefully spread out the days I actually open them up so they'll last for a good while. It's sad, really, but if I don't do this right, I'll go broke fast. And my baby girl won't have any milk when my wife's breasts run dry. I decided on a $10 box of '07 Topps Total Football because, hey, it's 11 packs for 10 bucks! I'm a sucker for a bargain. Also got a pack of '07 Bowman Baseball Draft Picks & Prospects and a cello pack of '07 Topps Football with 22 cards, which will be a treat because it's better than some packs that have only 4 or 5. Some new ones I haven't seen too.. a pack of '07 Topps Baseball Rookies: 1952 Edition and a pack of '07-'08 Topps Stadium Club Basketball. Today I went ahead and opened a pack of the Topps Total Football.. and was just a little disappointed because there were no cool inserts today. Sure there were 2 guaranteed rookies and I also pulled a silver parallel which is 1 of 6 packs, but the silver had a badly bent corner. I know I can't expect much from the cheapest packs out there but I like to hope.
Here's what I got:
#6 DeAngelo Hall #68 Nate Washington #52 Rosevelt Colvin, Mike Vrabel #93 Reynaldo Hill, Cortland Finnegan, Bo Scaife #221 Marty Booker [silver parallel] #368 Derrick Mason #417 Reggie Brown #439 Cornelius Griffin, Rocky McIntosh #465 Lorenzo Booker [rookie] #525 Earl Everett [rookie]
What it cost me: $.91 Beckett NM/MT worth: $8.95 Insert odds I beat: 1 of 6 packs [silver parallel] Most valuable card: #221 Marty Booker [silver parallel] @ $2.50
Kind of cool.. I pulled Miami's "Booker & Booker" duo from the same pack.
