|Can we please retire the "mom threw out my cards" schtick?|
|Maybe your dad is Luke Perry?|
I didn't have a chance to swing by the store today to investigate these 25-cent packs (that's on the agenda for Thursday), but it's clearly worth a look.
As for the "Week 2" festivities, all I can say is, Damn we've all gotten old! Are we really talking about "dad's old cards from the '80s" here? The '80s!? Shoot, how old is dad? Anyhow, if a stack of '88 Topps will get me a new pack of cards with a "unique" parallel and a possible autograph, then count me in!
As for this year's Archives product... Count me among those who thought the new cards were hitting shelves on the 29th. However, I see the release date is actually this Friday, the 31st. Kinda strange, no? Wednesdays are usually new card days for Topps, or so I thought. Anyhow, I'm starting to get excited for this set, especially since a quarter of the 200-card set features the 1990 base card design. [Ed. Note: No, that isn't a tongue-in-cheek comment, actually.]
I'm absolutely looking forward to the weekend when bloggers from coast to coast will be posting the results of blaster breaks and pack rips, etc. Always an exciting time! I hope to find myself a blaster box to enjoy and share on the ol' blog, as well.
