When series two came out, the Walmart cards were harder to find and more expensive. I decided to pass. I never even considered them when Update came out.
That decision left me with ten Cubs Walmart cards in a year when there were, from Series One, Two and Update, 29 Cubs base cards.
Having 29 base cards but only ten black cards....I just couldn't stand the unevenness. Six years later I decided to do something about it.
Scouring my usual haunts over the past several months has turned up seventeen of the missing nineteen Walmart black cards.
These are the regular cards of the two I'm still missing, Lou Piniella and Mike Fontenot.
Anyone collect the Walmart black cards back in 2009?
Anyone got an extra Piniella or Fontenot they'd like to get rid of?
