Loose Packs From the Back

22 12 2009

On Monday, the Omega Cardboard team got together to go on a trip to a somewhat local Sports Cards shop for some blog content.  Here’s what we got for packs:

In the back of the store, there were 6 big boxes full of loose packs for great prices.  Giantsfan and I picked up a pack of the 2008 hobby version of Allen & Ginter, a pack of 2007 UD Goudey, two packs of the new 2009 UD Goodwin Champions, and two packs of the 2008 UD Baseball Heroes.

Amongst the 6 packs, Giantsfan and I bought, Upper Deck’s Baseball Heroes gave us two hits in two packs!  An Adam Dunn Jersey Card #/125 and a Wade Boggs Red Parallel #/249.  Not bad for two packs!

In the Goudey pack, we got all base cards, but some cool players.  It was the first time I had opened a pack of Goudey and the design is definitely different and I can’t tell if I like it or not.  Doesn’t Howard look a little too cheery?

In the new release of the Goodwin Champions from UD, we pulled some mini’s, including this black border Hideki Okajima and also a Kinsler base for my collection.  They look pretty spiffy to me, what do you think?

In the Allen & Ginter, we got all base cards with a Casey Blake “homestate” card showing where he’s from, which is something new.  The look of A&G is really cool and is more refined than Goodwin or Goudey.

And just for kicks, we got a $1 pack of Helmar Trading Cards, which had three cards in the pack.  We have no idea who the players are.  It is pretty worthless, but random in a funny way.  What do you think?

Trying out different trading card brands and styles is fun and adventurous even if you don’t get much out of a pack.  Having variety is good especially when you get a Sadayoshi Fujimoto (Pacific) card!!

As for the Baseball Heroes packs, those were really cool.  On the back of the pack, it said that their was 1 memorabilia card in 8 packs.  Just our luck!  I know it’s just a jersey, but it was cool to pull from a single pack.  Overall, those were two awesome packs.

Thanks for reading!
