Unicorns


My local Target always has a well stocked card aisle. So whenever I have a hankering for some cardboard therapy I'm sure to find something.  What made this trip unique was the discounted baseball. While their is always discounted blasters, usually it consists of NBA and Nascar.  This time around they had two blasters of baseball and I bought them both.

Here is the contents of what turned out to be a really nice box of 2016 Archives.


 I don't pull many Harper's so this is a welcome addition of one of my favorite non Pirates.
 I pulled three Buccos with Kiner being my favorite.

 A few random cards that I really liked.  The Cargo has a nice shot of left field at PNC Park. The Lou Gehrig is super cool as well.

Socrates Brito is one of my favorite names in sports so I always show his cards.


Both Sano and Seager are having big years in their sophomore campaigns.  I want to see Sano, Judge and Stanton in the homerun derby this year.

This is the big hit from the box. 

I've pulled a few printing plates over the years, but this is probably the best one I've hit. This one has Zippy's name all over it since he loves Jennifer Lopez's boyfriend. 

So all in all it was a nice 12.99 investment.  I'll showoff the Stadium Club in the coming days. 

Thanks for reading.

  2. Sweetness! You've inspired me to hit my Target in the next couple of days, though I bet I pull 278 David Ortiz parallels. Socrates Brito is a fantastic name.

    Congrats on the most triumphant pull! Didn't get anything a fraction that good out of my discounted Stadium Club blaster.

  9. Congrats on the plate pull? Like Nick I did not get anything close to that in my blaster. Looking forward to your Stadium Club contents since I found a discounted one as well...someone else was able to get the discounted 2016 Heritage before I could get back to get it myself.

  12. Congratulations #1: Discounted Archives and SC blasters? Super jealous.

    Congratulations #2: A printing plate of one of the greatest players in the last few decades? How awesome is that? Amazing.

    1. I guess it all depends on how you collect. If you want something rare or if you are a player collector than they have a place. I usually only buy them when it is a Pirate that doesn't have a certified auto. Visually they leave a lot to be desired.
