Default 4 crappy Ginter blasters

Bought 4 blasters at my local Wal mart over the last 3 days; only cards worth mentioning were a Bryce Harper Mini and a Zack Grienke jersey relic; typical of how my luck runs cause my Wal Mart gets the crappiest boxes i have ever seen

no, retail for A&G is nothing usually inspiring.

I beg to differ. I bought 2 Target blasters and 2 Walmart blasters and had completely different results.

Walmart gave me 1 ginter code and a bible guy. Thats it. Nothing else worth taking up space over.

Target gave me a Ruth NNO mini, 2 harper minis, 3 codes, a Palmer sweater, Kemp relic and a James Brown auto.

so I'm 100% backing the OP. Walmart blasters are crap. Target consistantly produces big scores for me.

I promise you those Target blasters you got were very rare exceptions, not the rule.

A sample size of 4 blasters means statistically zero.

This is interesting seeing as most of my big pulls have come from Wal-Mart, and I'm talking pulls worth more than 50 bucks.

Or its just a case of people taking a .000000001% sample size of all the blasters out there, and since 4 blasters from a store were bad, they must all be bad, and since 2 target blasters were good, they must all be good.

I've bought an A&G blaster from target and one from Walmart and pulled relics out of each as well as some SP's.
Luck of the draw I suppose..

Did you expect anything different? Blasters are for people that just have the itch and want to bust something. You can't possibly purchase them expecting a Darvish auto, do you?

2 DNA cards in the last couple of years have been pulled from blasters. It's all luck of the draw.
