The Bucs managed to split a series against the Nationals pulling off a 5-3 win in the nation's capital. This means that someone is going to win some free cards of the Nationals.
I will have to randomize it off tomorrow, but in the meantime I'm going to show off some Bowman 2012 that I picked up. I was in Target shopping with my girlfriend for baby shower gifts for a friend and at the absolute last minute decided to dart to the card aisle. We were literally in line when I said, hold my place I'm buying some Bowman. She said, "we're going to a card show at the mall tomorrow. Isn't that enough?"
"I want an autograph" I said running towards the card aisle 8 registers away. I came back with a blaster in hand and some Life Saver Gummi Savers (damn you impulse buy endcaps) Paid my $22 and change and was on our way to the car.
As we were walking, she looked at the package and said in an excited school girl voice, "That's Bryce Harper!"
Yup! The ladies love Bryce Harper.
Once we got home we split the 7 packs + 1 bonus pack into 2 piles.
Her first pack had this guy in it. What are the odds of that?
Since she is such a big Bryce Harper fan, I'm not adding this to the contest winnings, but there will be plenty of other Nats swag included to our Contest winner
Brian McCann (Braves)
Brandon Morrow (Blue Jays)
Myrio Richard (A's) CHROME
Carlos Santana (Indians) GOLD
blah blah blah
Matt Kemp (Dodgers)
blah blah blah
Things were looking pretty solid in terms of getting players we like to this point.
The next few packs showed these cards as the highlights
Nothing to get really excited about, but I am happy to add the Starling Marte to my collection.
And then in the fourth to last pack was this blue bordered auto of Matt Adams numbered 277/500
I KNEW I WAS GOING TO PULL AN AUTO
If anyone is looking for base or to complete team sets let me know specifically what you're looking for. All nonPirates are for trade if they aren't named Bryce Harper or Matt Purke.
ON ANOTHER NOTE, THE PIRATES BEGIN INTERLEAGUE PLAY TOMORROW AGAINST THE DETROIT TIGERS IN DETROIT. THE PIRATES HAVE STRUGGLED OFFENSIVELY, BUT GET TO ADD ANOTHER BAT TO THE LINEUP WHICH MAY HELP THEIR CHANCES. IF THE PIRATES WIN THE SERIES AGAINST DETROIT, SOMEONE WILL RANDOMLY WIN THESE CARDS BELOW.
LET'S GO BUCS! BEAT THE TIGERS!
I have a dozen packages that still need to get to the post office, so if you're expecting something from me, it hasn't been lost, I just haven't had time to ship it yet.
