I broke down and decided to buy one more 2010 Topps Allen & Ginter rack pack from Wal-Mart the other day. It turns out I made a pretty good choice. I got two rookies
I was happy to finally get the Heyward rookie. It also didn't hurt that I got the Ryan Zimmerman This Day in History Card.
I really like this TDIH card not only because it's of a Towny Townsend Guy, but because it's one of the few TDIH cards to have a close up of the player. Too many of them have a full body shot of the players which amounts to a smaller picture than a mini. That, and it kinda looks like he is staring down the newspaper guy. I also really like that the event on the card is "The Siege of Yorktown Begins" because I live just a few minutes from Yorktown. I was pretty happy already with getting a Heyward and Zim TDIH, but was ecstatic when I pulled out the mini...
Yes, that's right, I pulled a Pujols Celestial Stars from a Wal-Mart rack pack. That's probably the best individual pack pull I have had since my 2008 Stadium Club Evan Longoria Auto. The horoscope on the back of the card suggests "Albert will experience a deep sense of satisfaction for [his] achievements in 2010." Perhaps a World Series MVP in the future?
