Default Most epic retail pull ever! (for me)

Wow do I love this hobby! So glad I'm back into it...

So...I always, always get royally screwed almost every time I buy retail, yet I continue to take it just cause I love ripping packs.

So I'm in target yesterday and see those retail 2011 Bowman blister packs...not sure what they call them..it has three packs and a pack of purple parallel cards (btw, anyone know if those are worth anything?)

I see they are 8.99 and I remember seeing a few auctions on ebay where they went for 12 or 13 bucks I think...figure I'll make a few bucks quick.

Well, glad I didn't got that route. I just couldn't stand having them sit there and not ripping em open, so that's what I did.

I think I can officially say my "retail drought" is over as far as getting screwed goes. I opened two blister packs, a total of 6 individual packs, and got these 3 cards:

Not bad...not bad at all...so I'm assuming I should get the Bryce graded?

This makes me want to run to my LCS, plop down my money on an overpriced hobby box, and see if I can keep this streak going! I think I need help...Hello...my name is Soxfanintx, and I'm a rip-aholic....lol

My most "epic" pull from retail, or most valuable, was simply a 2008 Heritage David Wright Black Refractor. Made my money back, it sold for $70

I pulled a Werewolf card from this years Allen & Ginter out of a blaster from WalMart. Hope to get close to 200 out of it. I knew something was up when I pulled out the 8 packs and the middle one was 3 times the size of any Ginter pack I have ever seen.

My "best" was probably a Johnny Nitro/Morrison auto from 2009 WWE from 1 pack that I sold for $20; but I guess if boxes of Score are retail, got a Jimmy Clausen auto from that.

Thanks guys. I was pretty psyched! I'm still trying to decide on my first case purchase, and I know I've kinda missed the train, but I'm so tempted to make 2011 Bowman.

Welcome to the site, bro. I hope you're a Red Sox fan! You're amongst good people.

My "best" pull, personally, from retail was a Brentz Bowman '11 auto.
