2009 Topps Baseball

After striking out on my last trip, I made another run to WalMart and Target today to see if I could finally get my hands on some '09 Topps. No luck at Wally World and I intensely browsed all the '08 leftovers to see if there was SOMETHING I could rip. The only thing that even remotely caught my eye was a lonely pack of A&G but I resisted knowing that Target may indeed have some '09. So on I went and upon striding to the card aisle a quick look revealed ... nothing. You've got to be kidding. It's February 2nd for crying out loud. Punxy Phil has already seen his shadow. But no '09 Topps. Then, as I was looking over the cards, looking for SOMETHING to buy, there it was. At the high far end of the pegboard there was a big 'ol hamster feed box of '09 Topps retail packs in all of their A-Fraud glory!! My eyes got big and I instinctively reached up...

Nothing...empty!? Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
But then after sliding my hand around the bottom I found this...LAST PACK MOJO! As far as I know I still have the first video up.

Awesome! My favorite catcher (Buck) and my wife's favorite catcher (Molina). Plus all the other wonderful players (esp. the Griffey). I agree, the combo shots are a lot nicer this year. Thanks for showing the card backs -- that's the first I've seen of them.

Combo cards are checklists? That's pretty cool! Great pair of Rays there too. That McCann looks awesome.
