2008 Update / Heritage High Number 2-Box Break
What do I do when 2013 Series 1 is about to release? Why, I break 2 boxes of a 5-year-old product, of course!
I went to a couple Walmarts looking for S1, and while neither had any, each one had a hobby box of 2008 Update / Heritage High Number for $50. Each pack contains 6 Heritage cards, 2 Update cards, and a piece of bubble gum, lol. I'm a sucker for Heritage, and this seemed like an interesting break, so I bit knowing that there were a lot of good RCs in this Heritage release. It sure was fun, and yielded some very decent cards (although no autos) ... and the best part was that I really had no idea what I was getting into!
Pieces of Bubble Gum - 47 (yes, I tried one, 5-year-old bubble gum is about 4.5 years too old)
2008 Topps Update - Longoria RC
2008 Heritage Base - Longoria RC, Kershaw RC, C. Gonzalez RC, J. Garcia RC, and anyone else you can think of ... dupes of some
Heritage Black-Backs - Kershaw RC
Heritage Chrome /1959 - Fukudome RC, C. Gonzalez RC x2
Heritage "Clubhouse Collection" Relics - Ryan Zimmerman, Julio Lugo (Red Sox)
Heritage 1959 Buybacks - Norm Zauchin
... and last but not least ...
Heritage Chrome Black Border /59 (3 per case) - C. Gonzalez RC
Will try to get scans up soon for those who care. Was a very fun break. If anyone is interested in anything, shoot me a PM.
If you see any of these boxes and decide to buy, keep in mind that some of the autos are redemptions that expired in 2010.
I'm not asking for much ... just perfect information.

Nice break . The Walmarts near me haven't had any new interesting hobby boxes in a while

I hate negotiating and will make already fair offers if I have to first
