Default 2011 Platinum - my wife has all the luck

So the wife and I go to walmart for some grocery shopping and I tell her at the checkout to pick two rack packs of 2011 platinum. There were about 20 rack packs on the shelf and she picked out the two she "felt good about". We opened them at the house and pulled a auto relic of Emilio Bonafacio red /10 and a redemption for a triple auto of Posey, Mauer, and Montero. Both are listed on eBay currently. I should really just let her pick out all my cards from now on!

WOW. Unbelievable! My GF is the same way. She wins at least 50% of the lottery tickets she buys. Oh and she landed 3 Bryce Harper Autos early this year in one day @ Lakewood.

More power to the ladies!

Very nice! I can't wait to see the Posey/Mauer/Montero when they go live.

I almost redeemed it myself, but figured I'd go ahead and take the cash and run.

She tolerates my affliction with card collecting, and on the rare occasion I buy retail, I usually let her pick out the packs. She out pulls me any day of the week! In fact, sometimes I'll grab a few packs and she picks a few packs...beats me every time without fail.

Good luck to you and happy bidding! I usually throw in a bonus card to my shipment, so if you win it I'll try to throw in one of the guys you're collecting.

Nice pulls. My gf has pulled me a Bryce Harper Purple Border from Target

BUT DO NOT PUSH YOUR LUCK!

Trust me, she won't hit gold every time. Maybe like once every 10 times

I thought about that when listing it. I ultimately decided on the spelling on the card because that's how most of the listings were showing up. It is getting alot of views and watchers already, so maybe people have figured out the spelling mistake and are running their searches accordingly.
