I won't bore you with text. See some purple:
Pack Zero: This one was the "extra pack" in the box, the one that was, you know, supposed to have all purple refractors. Joe Benson, Hunter Pence, Adam LaRoche, Jason Vargas. Not the best, but I enjoy Pence and LaRoche was a fantasy sleeper this year. Worked out well for me.
Pack One: When I ripped this one, I knew what I had. You just don't get three purple refractors and a basic refractor in a single pack. Needless to say, I was excited at this point. Also, the player selection in this pack was killer (save for the basic refractor). Dustin Pedroia, Giancarlo Stanton, Mark Reynolds, Michael Morse.
Pack Two: Love the player selection here, along with the photography. I am sure someone will be interested in the Kershaw. Clayton Kershaw, Drew Hutchison f/the hockey flow, Zack Cozart, Miguel Montero.
Pack Three: A slight recession. Eric Hosmer, Ryan Vogelsong, Justin Morn-'O Canada, BJUpton.
Pack Four: Most boring star in baseball, some rookies, and the most exciting non-star in baseball. Mark Teixeira, Alex Liddi - MLB's first Italian-born player, Colin Cowgill, Nyjer Morgan (why do we have no Brewers and Athletics card blogs?
Pack Five: Kelvin Herrera and Roy Halladay in almost the same exact pose, World Series Hero David Freese and a boring old base refractor of ex-Blue Jays great Shaun Marcum (come home, soon.)
Pack Six: A very awesome shot of Madison Bumgarner, XFractor Brian Dozier, Taylor Green, Mike Napoli.
Pack Seven: The closeout is easily the best pack. I enjoy Andre Ethier and his hockey flow. RA Dickey is a Nue Jay, and the colours and photo on the Chris Young is awesome. And then the most valuable card in the box, a basic Yoenis Cespedes refractor.
Purple Refractors: 25
XFractor: 1 (Brian Dozier)
Regular Refractors: 3 (Shaun Marcum, Dustin Pedoucha, Yoenis Cespedes)
Damn, that was a fun blaster. Oh yeah, This was the first of three DISCOUNTED blasters I grabbed with leftover Xmas gift card money from Sprawl Mart today. No, the others were not hot, but still yielded some decent cards.
