Holy Retail Find!:07/08 Topps/Bowman Chrome, 08/09 Topps Chrome/Treasury *LIVE BREAK*
 
So I took my mom in to get surgery on her knee this morning (it went fine, she's back home recuperating). While killing time, I stopped at a nearby K-Mart that I hadn't been to in years. I was amazed at what I found. Not only did they have current stuff (garbage), but I found some of my favorite products, from some great past years! I had to control myself and leave some product there, but I got some good stuff.

All told, I got 4 blisters packs of 07/08 Topps Chrome, 2 blisters of 07/08 Bowman Draft, 1 blaster of 08/09 Topps Treasury and 1 blaster of 08/09 Topps Chrome (the latter 2 being probably 2 of my fav. bkb products of all time).

The good:[/B]
-The blister packs only cost $1.49!

[B]The really good:[/B]
- The Topps Chrome blaster only cost $9.99 (oh Yes)...the Treasury was the regular $19.99
[B]
The bad:[/B]
-The Topps chrome doesn't seem to have any Topps logo on the wrapping and is partially opened in 1 spot, so I'm scared it may be resealed (but for $10, I'll take the risk)

[B]
Anyone interested in seeing a live break of something slightly different than Panini banality? [/B]
Not expecting anything earth shattering...just happy to open some old favorites!

Will start in a few minutes, with the 07/08. :flex:

[QUOTE=retailkid;2828039]I'll watch as well[/QUOTE]

Just to be clear, I'm not breaking live (in the video sense), just updating as I go along...but I'll post pictures if there's anything worth it.

MISTERIOUS 06-15-2012 03:55 PM

Can't wait to see what you pull from Topps Treasury. It's a personal favorite.

ToppsCollector1 06-15-2012 04:29 PM

Do you think all kmarts stock old products?

WilsonValdez 06-15-2012 04:31 PM

[QUOTE=WiggumPI;2828242]Can't wait to see what you pull from Topps Treasury. It's a personal favorite.[/QUOTE]

Same here :)

[QUOTE=ToppsCollector1;2828269]Do you think all kmarts stock old products?[/QUOTE]

I don't think they "stock" old product...I just think a lot of them never get rid of old stuff.

Btw, had to help my mom with her brace and such, so sorry for the delay...

bigcwd2000 06-15-2012 04:33 PM

Wow, awesome find on these. Good luck.

WilsonValdez 06-15-2012 04:36 PM

First, the extra jersey in the Topps Treasury blaster is.......the one and only Chinese League MVP...Starbury himself :)

WilsonValdez 06-15-2012 04:37 PM

And EVEN BETTER NEWS....The Topps Chrome is NOT Re-sealed (hallelujah). It was actually double wrapped, the outer wrapping was the torn part :)

WilsonValdez 06-15-2012 04:51 PM

Sweet pull. If I remember correctly, gold refractors were pretty hard pulls. About 1 out of every 2 or so hobby boxes.
