...and then finding.
We seem to be living in a baseball card wasteland. The only shop we once semi-frequented, 72 miles away, closed this fall. There is very little new product to be found. Recently, walking by the card aisle at Target, we saw a retail box of T206 that had been ransacked and violated. The packs were strewn about, having been searched and probably pinched and weighed by a microscale. Pack searchers had worked round the clock to x-ray everything, for all we know.
So whenever we realize that packs containing anything jerseylike or autograph-like have already been pre-detected and pre-removed, but we're still kind of curious, we buy two packs. In two packs, especially in a design such as A&G or T206 that include minis, we're bound to find something ok. For instance, thiswas the first card we found. Nice pose, pretty smile, good showage of team logo. Thumbs up! But wait, here's the best part!:
Hey, it's tough to look down at a camera and still appear pretty sharp, so congrats to Mr. Escobar for pulling that off.
