A few discount blasters

Whenever we hit up the local big box store, I'm always on the lookout for discounted blasters from yester-year (still dreaming about finding 30 2011 Topps Update boxes) Got the itch to open some packs and had a good time doing it. Pulled some decent cards.

The mini's were really good in 2016 Gypsy Queen. Hit a Gold a silver a short print and a short print rainbow all in the one blaster box. Not much on the big cards besides a couple of inserts and Ryan Howard. 

  Really like the photos and feel of the cards of 2016 Stadium Club. Might consider a case or a couple boxes if the price is right. The Darvish is a big hit in retail 1 in 200 some odd packs so was pretty happy to get one. Like the design of the insert too.

The Fergie is a nice numbered blue parallel. Decent card; side note; I really liked 2012 Topps Archives and opened a good bit of it, I didn't really like when they jacked the price up for some movie autos and then created color parallels for no reason. I've never seen someone chase a 'rainbow' for this set. Obviously though I will open discounted blasters!

Thanks for checking me out! (not that way);

Just ordered my Ginter box for Gint-A-Cuffs! Should be here soon!
