Default Crazy trip to Walmart

I was picking up some groceries at Walmart and noticed that they had 3 2010 Bowman Platinum blasters that were discounted to 11.99. I didn't buy the at first, but went back after getting some gas. When I got home, on the back of the first pack was a Mike Trout base. I thought that it was going to be all down hill from the, I was wrong. Here is the haul


Refractor auto


Then I saw this

Nice triple autograph and one of my cooler pulls from retail. Then I saw this peaking out of the 2nd to last pack











Mike Trout autograph refractor. I am so glad that I went back. Thank you all for looking.

Jeremy

This makes me want to buy more blasters but I haven't pulled a single hit from a blaster box. Maybe I'm due?

That's freakin' awesome. I've bought a number of these as well and I've done pretty well.

Also, If you're trading/selling the trout auto please let me know.

Funny, I pulled the same exact two cards (Trout, and the triple) from Bowman Platinum blasters a few years back.

Traded the Trout for next to nothing, and sold the triple for like $20. Wish I still had both of them, haha.

I found a box of 2010 Platinum last year at Walmart right before the Trout hype went crazy and my lone auto was Trout! Left in the box and forgot about it until he starting selling like crazy and ended up selling it for $230! But I have also bought a lot of crap from Walmart too where I didnt get crap! Makes those nice boxes even better though!! Nice hit's OP!

Man I am jealous; both that you had 2010 Bowman Platinum blasters, and that you actually pulled nice things from it :P Congrats!

Very nice, 2010 Platinum is hot, it's crazy that it's discounted. I'd buy that all day.

I pulled the same auto from retail way back. Sold on COMC for $72. I had it priced double book and it sold on Amazon. It was in my "not ready to sell but I'll take stupid money for it" pile.

That is halarious, I may steal that and put it in my sig. I checked some other Walmarts but had no luck. They did have quite a few 2008 Bowman chrome hobby boxes though. I wasn't going to touch those, not much in there.
