Maybe the Cubs 4-for-1 wasn't a complete overpay in talent. Want to know what was?
I was hoping to find a retail blaster, because I knew I could get 40 cards for a twenty spot. So out the door I went. After hitting two Targets AND two Wal-Marts this morning and coming up empty I decided to bite the bullet and go to my LCS.
Why do I say that? The good people at the red and blue box stores price things at the MSRP, and they don't mark prices up because Aaron Judge is a beast. People who know cards also know supply and demand. Unfortunately, they know who Aaron Judge is.
My LCS owner bought one 16-box case and it arrived yesterday. Twelve of the boxes sold yesterday and they already opened a second box to sell individual packs. The shelves only had two unopened boxes left in less than twenty-four hours time. Wow.
I didn't have to purchase anything, but I needed to rip something and I've been eyeing Stadium Club since the sell sheet was released some time ago. There's fifteen Cubs base cards in the base set, including Ryne Sandberg, and THE VOGELMONSTER is also in this product! Plus, it's Stadium Club, the cards always beautiful.
|Jake Thompson seems to point to the price of the pack. Odd.|
|Anyone else thing Strasburg looks completely different without facial hair?|
|If you're a Boston fan and pull a Cub, then let me know! We need to trade!|
|Gold Parallel of a guy with a 0.100 batting average. Ouch.|
|Fine example of the photography Stadium Club is known for!|
For now I'll have to settle on the fact that I overpaid for one pack of Stadium Club. But man, that Nolan Arenado card is pretty sweet!
