One Card Post - My First Red Sox Card of 2015!
Where: Target, from a blaster
How Much?: $.20 (price per card if you do the math on the blaster)
Why?: First Red Sox card of 2015! Finished up a brutal week at work that had me clocking 60+ hours including working through the middle of the night on a major project, 70+ hours if you count travel/commute time. Since it turned out a success, I decided to stop on my way home, exhausted, and check Target for 2015 Topps. I found a fresh supply of blaster boxes and picked one up to reward myself. Jackie here was the first Red Sox card I encountered, in pack 2.
Other: I have to be honest and say that I was only mildly excited about this year's Topps flagship design, but with some in hand I realized I like them quite a bit. My favorite part might be the card backs, job well done Topps! Also, great photo selection and cropping on this particular card.
