Hope everyone's doing well and getting ready for the big Memorial Day weekend. Stay safe, everybody!
Keeping with the parallel theme, here's a pack of the Target red bordered cards that came with the specially-marked blaster boxes...it's a 2012 Topps Series 1 Baseball Target Red Border Blaster Pack!
Once again, I scanned the side of the blaster box so you can see the special designation announcing to the world that this box would have 2 packs of Target exclusive parallel cards. And again, the packs containing the parallels were not marked in any special way either. Here's one of the packs:
#203 - Jeff Niemann
#140 - Troy Tulowitzki
#316 - Nick Blackburn
No need to bore you all with opinions and stats. I could take them or leave them with the colored borders. Topps should have had different shots for the parallels, that would have been more fun.
#283 - Brandon Allen (Golden Parallel)
#GS-22 - Nolan Ryan
The Golden Parallel Allen looks pretty nice. They should have kept the serial numbering of the prior XX Years of Topps. Still would have rather got 2 more red bordered cards.
#98 - Domonic Brown
#269 - Jason Vargas
#56 - Geovany Soto
See, suppose the Vargas shot was a Target exclusive. That would be cool, right? I guess it could backfire, with 3 different chains with 3 different versions of the same player. Maybe I should keep quiet about my wacky ideas. Still, I do like throwback unis!
Anyway, that's the pack. More eventually. Now, go outside and enjoy the weekend! Thanks for reading!
