Life Is Like A Box Of Baseball Cards, You Never Know What You Are Going To Get.

                  Sometimes I wish the back of a box of baseball cards had a "flavor guide" like a box of Russell Stover's has now. You pick up a pack and the guide tells you exactly what will be inside. Yet other times I just love that mystery of opening baseball cards and never knowing what you are about to open up.

                  This time was one of those times where I love the mystery.

                  The other day to celebrate our nation's independence, my friend and I went out and bought some boxes of cards. Although it was a product from a few years ago, 2008 Upper Deck Timeline, quenched our pack ripping thirst just fine with a guaranteed relic per box as shown on the blaster here.


              Luckily for us though we only had to pay $10 per box. And as my Spanish teacher would always say, "Que ganga. What a bargain!" And as you'll later find out we got an absolute steal for these boxes.

                       And that was about as exciting as it got with the base cards. Now onto my guaranteed "hit".

                  Awful photo I know, but when you don't have a scanner, you'll take what you can get. Anyways, I bet you're are asking how is this a steal? Let me show you why this box was considered a steal.

How suiting for the Fourth of July
                  The man with the audacity to drop the F-Bomb on national television. And that ladies and gentlemen is what I call a steal.

                  I am very glad that Russell Stover's doesn't make baseball cards because I would know exactly what I am going to get and there is definitely no fun in that  Thanks for reading everybody and I hope you all had an amazing Fourth of July. I know I did!

P.S. If you are reading this, Angels In Order, I already have some cards set aside to send to you 


  1. In the off chance you got any of these: 2008 Upper Deck Timeline:
    Base: #235, 300, 308, 336, 341, 345, 356, 361, 363, 366, 373, 374, 375 I'd love to trade. I'm STILL working on the set!

  2. It's always such a thrill to pull an extra hit.

  3. I love that set. Good score on the Ortiz relic.

  4. Thanks Man! I'll get some stuff together for you too.

  5. Please shoot me an email with your addy so that I can mail the card you claimed on my blog.
