Default Blaster markdowns at Target

Had to go to Target this weekend and while I was there, of course I checked the cards. They had $11.99 2011 A&G blasters and $11.99 2012 Topps Heritage blasters.

They also had $11.99 2011 Topps Lineage but they rang up at $19.99 and I didn't want to fight with the guy so I didn't buy them.

One of the Heritage boxes has a Walmart exclusive Brian Wilson blue border in it so I assume this is just Excel or whoever unloading mixed stock.

Yeah, I found a 2011 Bowman Draft for 11.99 on Saturday. Didn't get much. A couple purples and refractors. It 'might' pay for itself. I wish mine were as stocked as yours.

I also noticed some interesting stuff in the 1.59 loose packs. There were some retail packs of 08-09 Artifacts Hockey. I grabbed all 3 and pulled a Dany Heatly swatch.

Wow, not bad.

I didn't get much but what can you expect for retail? Fortunately both these sets are ones I'm just trying to build base sets of and never really bought in Hobby.

2 A&G relics (one was a Fielder) from A&G (3 blasters). Should have enough fodder to trade at the LCS to get the few minis I need for the master set.

Heritage (3 blasters) had the exact two Target exlusives I wanted, Starlin Castro and Konerko. So that was cool.

They also had a lot of $11.99 Football, Basketball, and Nascar blasters but I don't know about any of those products so I left them for someone who does.

2011 a&g and 2011 topps chrome were marked down, along with $1.59 2011 Topps chrome packs. I already cleaned out one Target, might try to see if others are as stocked, as now i'm building both these sets on the cheap lol.

XL5-What minis do you need on 2011 A&G? I pulled my fair share.

I posted about this a couple weeks ago (2010 chrome/ginter & 2012 heritage blasters 12$ at Target). The funny thing is that at my target, they had the 2012 heritage blasters marked down right next to the ones marked at 20.

I went to mine last week and picked up a couple as well.One was Bowman Draft, didn't get much, a couple purple refractors of prospects I didn't know.Forgot what the other one was.With the Trout RC logo cards it was worth a shot.

They had these at my Target as well. Got a box of 2011 Bowman Platinum, 2012 Gyspy Queens, 2011 Bowman, but they didn't have much in them.

I was looking for Bowman Chrome today, they didn't have it but I did get a Heritage blaster. I have found lots of good markdown blasters at Walmart but this is the first time I've seen decent ones at Target. Can't go wrong with 12 bucks for 8 packs. I got nothing special, but 3 SPs, a sticker, some decent rookies, and a few Cardinals PC cards for 12 bucks is good enough for me. I might have to buy the others.
