I saw on the message boards and a few blogs that Topps and Walmart have teamed up with a set of cards that come in Walmart's Marketside Pizza. As far as I can tell, this is the first time Topps has teamed up with a food company since the Quaker Oats cards of 1986. That's a 30 year famine.
When Mrs. WW went shopping on Saturday, I gave her an assignment...look for the baseball version of Marketside pizza. I wasn't expecting much since things seem to come slowly to Sturgis.
But lookie at what she brought home. This stuff isn't Vito and Nick's, but then Vito doesn't give out baseball cards. She told me there were three boxes in the store, and she kinda went back and forth before grabbing this one.
I opened the box and under the pizza was a foil wrapper....the cards. There are five cards in the pack...
....a coupon card (that's the front and back)...
....a Topps bunt card, and three player cards.
Like the title of the post says, we nailed it!
These two, well, who cares? OK, Yankee and Rockie fans care, but I don't.
This is what I care about....
Kris Bryant! I thought that I'd have to eat a lot of mediocre pizza or pay a high price on Ebay for this. Instead, Mrs. WW grabbed it first try!
Are there other Cubs in the set? Don't know. In fact, I haven't seen a checklist yet. If there are more Cubs, I'm sending Mrs. WW out again...or maybe I'll send her to Vegas instead. She's on a roll!
