Another repack winner / Lucrative Archives

I'm not sure what it is about my the Walton's Crappy Imports across from where I work, but I have had amazing luck there with repacks. Last week I picked up yet one more and it didn't disappoint. It had it's usual smattering of late 00's UD packs, 2010 and 2012 Topps. But it also had a rack pack each of 2013 Series 2 and Update Series. They contained these.

There's definitely a reason I keep buying these repacks. About half to 2/3 of them provide nothing good. But the others end up making up for it ten times over.

Last week I also made the trek to the not so local Target. Cards were part of my agenda, of course. I had never intentionally purchased Topps Archives before. It just hasn't interested me. But I decided to take a chance on a blaster and it paid off.

*DING DING DING DING DING* We have a winner!!!

Since Archives isn't one of my must buy sets I probably won't buy anymore so I feel pretty good about the success of my one purchase.
