|The best card in the set|
This was lucky for me and I was able to take advantage at my LCS. Recently I went in to the shop and was talking to the owner and a box of Triple Play caught my eye. I had picked up a couple packs at Target and was thinking of getting more and the $22 price tag was tempting. I asked him how much he had bought and if it had been popular. He told me that is really hadn't sold at all and he bought 4 boxes and he was certain he would be sitting on them forever. Without even asking, he told me he would sell me a box for $15 and I didn't hesitate to jump on it. A couple days later, after thoroughly enjoying the break I went back for one more and got it for $17. $32 for 48 packs - not too bad of a haul.
I already shared what I feel is the best card of the set, I am quite certain there will be disagreement from at least some of the Dodger bloggers out there. (Side note - Wilson has been spending time in the Giants dugout lately and I LOVE the celebration dance he and Pablo Sandoval do in the dugout after the Panda homers. Panda has hit 4 HRs in the last 3 games so I have had the chance to see it quite a bit.) I thought I would share the results of my breaks, somewhat of a product review and a status on where I am with the set - yes I have decided to go for the entire set.
All totaled the set is 300 cards. I am 65 cards short of the set and my want list is posted on the blog. If you have cracked some packs and want to make a trade let me know. Who knows, maybe I will head back to the shop and see if he is willing to let the last box go cheap as well.
There are also 3 insert sets and I figured what the heck, might as well go for those as well.
I obviously am a fan of this set, cheap and fun. The designs of most of the sets are nice in my opinion and I look forward to going after the entire set. Let me know if you can help out.
