Random Pack Rip

So I found myself at a Dollar Tree store after work tonight.  I wanted to pick up some cheap bubble mailers (I have a trade package that should have gone out Friday.  Bad blogger).  I picked up a couple other cheap things and then walked by the card section. 

They had some packs of 2014 Topps, but I've had my issues with the base set this year and I just know that all 5 cards in the pack would be dupes. And there's no Slayer parallels in there, so those were not for me.

Then I saw some packs of Triple Play.  7 cards to a pack for unlicensed cards?  Eh, what the heck.  I can get 7 cards to send out in some PWEs and it will scratch the pack ripping urge.

These things are kinda flimsy, but kinda neat at the same time.  I just realized these are 2013s too.  I got a sticker insert there.  If anybody wants any of these, let me know.  They're yours (somebody out there collects Rizzo, right?).

Hey Junk Wax, that's only 6 cards!  You're right.

Ha!.  That's a hit as far as I'm concerned.  Something else I just realized.... As I was putting this in my Trout binder, I got to put it next to the base card from the set.  This card was worth the buck.

On a completely unrelated note... My new chip cover was VERY lucky for me last night.  Entered a tournament and won the whole thing.  Oh yeah, Mr. Weaver is going with me every time I play.


  1. Triple play is always good for a cheap, fun break.

  2. I don't think I have a single card from this set, though I have an overflowing box of the 2012 version in my apartment. If you feel like it, you could set aside the Freese for me?

  3. I liked the 2013 more than the 12. They're surprisingly satisfying.
