Talking Awesome day at Walmart!!

Picked up a blaster of 2011 Bowman Platinum Baseball for 11.99 and a rack pack of Allen and Ginter for 9 bucks. Got a Don Denkinger relic from Ginter and a MOJO Bryce Harper Auto from the platinum. Overall a great day. Thanks for the read!

If I ever decide to go pack searching I might just sit down in the middle of the aisle with stacks of blasters and just start opening crap up. Wrappers everywhere.

I have to be honest..I really don't believe that people are pulling Harper autos from WalMart or any other retail store for that matter..these posts are garbage in my opinion

Wrong. Pulled one myself from a 2011 Platinum Blaster. Many others here have too.

I pulled a Bryce Harper auto out of a Bowman Chrome blaster from wal-mart. I was just getting back in to the hobby and had little knowledge on what the "hobby" version of a product was.

Been hooked since. Sometimes I think I would have been better off not hitting the darn thing.

Probably..man, I must have gone through 20 blasters when I first got back into the hobby not too long ago..the most I pulled was a purple trout refractor from Topps Chrome. If you read the odds on retail packs, you'll see that you're almost better off putting a lighter to your cash. I only bust hobby now, and I actually pulled a Harper auto last week from 2011 BDPP..finally an actual hit! I mostly buy singles though.

You can doubt all you want, but I pulled 3 Harper autos from 12' platinum retail - 2 ref, and 1 green ref. I also pulled a base auto from an 11' BC value box. Odds are not great, but retail is not to be discounted. Granted, I did buy a lot so to be clear it wasn't like I pulled those cards from a small sample size. I hit 2 of the BP from racks and 1 from a blaster. I also hit a Darvish base auto from 12' TC from a retail box - not a rack or blaster. There are big hits in retail, but the odds are fairly long. I hit another Harper auto (patch auto /25) from Sig Stars from Walmart, but it was a hobby box. By comparison, I easily bought a hobby case of BC and didn't hit anything worth mentioning. Not to mention all the loose hobby packs from my LCS. Though, I did hit a non/auto superfractor of an obscure player from the loose hobby packs. I still get more excited opening hobby, but I don't turn a blind eye to retail.
