This was very unexpected. I was at Walmart early this morning picking up milk for breakfast. I couldn't resist a quick peek at the card aisle. Buried among the Topps Series One and Heritage boxes was a lone blaster that I didn't recognize. I picked one up to read it and was shocked by what I found. It said Heritage 2010! The box was clearly different than the 2009 boxes. I grabbed it and headed to the checkout.
When you shop at 6:00 a.m. one thing you don't have to worry about is a line at the checkout. Today was no different. The blaster was quickly paid for and I was out the door. I zipped home and tossed the milk in the fridge and then went right at the blaster. I don't have much time to post before school so this will be quick.
I was lucky enought to score a total of 8 Cubs including the Sandberg MVP shortprint. I am a very happy boy.
On my way to school I went back to Walmart to see if they had any more. I couldn't find any, so I ask around. The assistant manager was able to help and said that more wouldn't be available until next February. The box I got was available today only, April 1. And then he said to enjoy today's special day and he muttered something under his breath that sounded like he was calling me a fool.
