Bait and Switch

I stopped by my local Wal-Mart and picked up a pack of Updates and Highlights.

55 Cesar Izturis
13 Jeff Blum
223 Jeff Ridgway
131 Manny Ramirez
289 Chris Gomez
304 Brad Lidge
229 Adrian Gonzalez
102 Matt Murton
251 Mark Redman
48 Grant Balfour (Gold 1310/2008)
288 Evan Longoria
WMDP28 Lance Berkman

Not bad; a Longoria, a Perez, a gold, and

The free agent in his Red Sox uni.

I took the bait and bought a whole box of Topps Series 2.

In the series 2 I only got one Red Sox, just one!!
What a rip off. A whole box with only one of the defending world champs (at least for another night they are, thank you rain).

It did come with a guaranteed game used at least.

Here is a breakdown of the rest of box.

71/205 base cards NO DOUBLES!!
1 Mantle MM59
2 Year in Review YR86 YR90
2 Campaign Cards 1796 & 1888
2 50th Anniversary All-Stars AR86 Khalil Greene & AR105 Miguel Cairo
2 Topps Stars TS1 A-Rod & TS14 Jake (Hot Stove rumor) Peavy 8 RCs

A whole bunch of these are going to be going out in the mail as soon as I acquire enough to make the shipping worthwhile.

4 Braves for the Cardboard Junkie
1 Heartbreaking Royal
4 Rays for Fielder's Choice
4 Indians for Saints of the Cheap Seats

If anyone needs some Series 2 to fill a set let me know. Maybe I can help.
