Yesterday I stopped by Wal-Mart for bread, milk, eggs and cards. You know, the staples.
Imagine my lack of surprise to discover 3 boxes of single packs and at least 30 blasters of 2012 Topps sitting on the shelf. I picked up a blaster and the top 10 packs on the right side of the box and made my way to the register. This next part may shock you.
I didn't open the cards in the parking lot. I didn't open the cards at home. No, I managed to hold off for over 9 hours and open them at work. Yes, at work. I pulled the promised manu-patch and as much as I don't want to like it, I like it. I also pulled a jersey relic. You know, the "not from any specific game, event or season" kind of relic.
Here's the contest part. Guess which team I pulled a relic (not the manu-patch) from and I'll randomly choose a "winner" for this post from all the entrants who get the right team. I'll even give you a hint. It's not a Texas Ranger.
I know, I was bummed too.
Just a reminder, the "winner" selected from each contest post this month will be entered into a randomization to determine who wins the 2012 Topps Blaster.
