100 Cards Inside

We prempt this blog for this unscheduled rant about New England weather.

Just to give you an idea of what the weather is like in New Hampshire, Memorial Day Weekend was rainy and in the 50's. Last weekend was in the 90's. Today we were back in the 60's. Tommorow it's supposed to be rainy in the 50's. It's supposed to start raining tonight and not stop until Sunday.

That's where I have it over all you people in warm weather places like California and Florida. When your significant other plans something outdoors like a picnic or some kind of family thing, you actually have to do it.

I don't....because it gets rained out.

Other than that, this weather sucks. I have no idea why I still live here.

Now back to your regularly scheduled blog.

Since the repacks I've been buying at Five Below have been less than exciting lately, I though I'd try something different. I see these at Target quite often but I never buy them, so I bought one to see what was inside it.

I do like the oddball Dale Murphy card on the back.

 So let's take a look at the 100 cards one of these offers.

...and finally the 100th card!

2010 Topps Trevor Hoffman (Brewers)

Not bad. I really like the Kaline and the Tristar David Price. I have like five Pinncle Aficionado cards, and the Dante Bichette was one of them. So now I have six and two of them are Dante Bichette.

I still need a lot of 2010 Topps and 1989 Donruss, so I wasn't sad to see this many of them.

A lot of the sets that were represented in this I haven't finished (many of them, I have very few cards), so most of these probably aren't dupes.

I could have done without the dupes within the repack, though. It's only 100 cards. Would it be too much to ask for 100 different cards?


  1. You get a Gwynn, a Murphy, and an Alvin Davis all in one repack. The only one missing is a Willie Stargell and it would have been the ultimate pack!

  2. Ooooh, lemme know if you are willing to part with that 2012 Heritage black parallel of Greinke!
