It’s time for another round of Bustin’ Blasters!
This time, we will be opening a blaster of 2012 Topps Series I baseball…and a bonus of a retail fat pack! Oooooh. (Or whatever they are called.)
So I ripped into a blaster and a fat packy retail thing in search of…well I wasn’t really searching for anything. Red Sox cards? Trade bait? So a little bit of both. Instead, I really just got some set fillers and my bonus commemorative patch.
And trying to hide from Yankees cards has proven to be extremely difficult. Too many Yankees for my liking. But all in all, ripping packs is fun so it was fun. Here is a sampling of what you might find in your retail or retail fatty packs.
(And if you don’t know what the base looks like by now, check out what I got in my mini-break of half a jumbo hobby box.)
As I state in the below video, I bust a couple blasters a month but have never really posted anything about them. Well, that is about to change. Taking a few notes from Chris Olds of Beckett, I decided to start posting videos of what you might find in some blasters.
Well our first and inaugural blaster is 2011 Topps America Pie. Full of pop culture and Hollywood icons, this is the product for all those who love American nostalgia. Well, here is American Pie and all it’s glory.
The base cards…1 from each decade shown:
The insert cards…a variety of inserts and a shiny foil:
And a commemorative patch of John Wayne numbered to just 25! Complete all the letters for your own Hollywood sign!
Overall, this America Pie blaster was a lot of fun. I’ve been seeing a ton of relics come out of these blaster boxes so I would recommend picking one up and taking your chances, especially if you enjoy nostalgia like I do. I may not have been alive for half these cards, but I love the ones that I do remember.
As always, have fun.
