Ending 2018 with a very 2018 repack

I have so many fun things to show off on my blog - great blogger mailings, my awesome online marketplace find, and a gift from one of my favorite pro players. And I'll get to those soon!

Instead, I bought one last Walgreen's Fairfield repack yesterday. As noted, we had been traveling for a week. So I stepped out to Walgreen's for milk, and decided to treat myself to a repack. When I checked out the toy aisle, there were four baseball repacks, but one stood out:
New packaging! To most of us, usually these are a dark green, like this one:
Figuring these have new packaging and thus, possibly more recent cards, I took a chance. I was right. This was full of some interesting 2018 cards.

Most of the 2018s were from Bowman, including a Mike Trout and Clayton Kershaw. The Harper is 2016 Topps, of course.
There was also some 2018 Finest.
I was most pleased with the amount of 2018 rookie cards, including a sweet Miguel Andujar I didn't have, and a few other decent prospects.
There were also a lot of prospect cards from 2017, including Mickey Moniak and Tanner Houck.
The Young and Lee are from 2018.

There were even some 2018 Topps team set cards!
Of course, what is a repack without Barry Bonds?
Some of my more recent repacks had some newer Topps packs, but we're back to junk wax here with a pack of 1992 Donruss. No, I didn't pull a Ripken auto.
While I didn't get a 1:4 hit, hard to complain about this repack. The new Andujar RC almost makes it worth it on it's own, plus it had a lot of star power with Harper, Trout, Kershaw, and some top tier prospects.

Not a bad way to end 2018! Happy New Year to you all. If you're going out, have a fun and safe evening!


  1. Longoria still does not look right in a Giants uniform. As a former Durham Bulls player, I have enjoyed following his career, but it has become painful in the last year.

    That Bonds Score card is awesome. Loved those cards.

  2. I hate to say it, but it seems like you might have actually gotten a little more value for your dollar (or five) with this newer style repack.

  3. Nice. Glad you got the needed Andujar. I've still never purchased or opened a repack. Happy New Year!

  4. And people say that Bonds head grew so big once leaving Pittsburgh? Show this Score card to the HOF voters. His dome was huuuuuge. Hahaha!

    Happy New Year dude.

  5. Not bad to wrap up the year! Happy New Year!

  6. It's really cool to see that people can pull decent stuff like Andujar rookie cards out of these repacks. Happy New Year!
