On Wednesday 21 May 2014: Not a mailday but got some cards from a Target Shoot/Hunt whatever you wanna call getting cards from Target.

I got the 2014 Topps Baseball National League Team Set (All-Star Team?) 17 cards. Ugh thought it was just the Nationals when I picked it up but it appears to be the NL All-Star Team. Dang Harper being card #1.

Then I got a fairfield repack box, but a box of packs not loose cards. It is one of the 20 pack boxes with 2008 Topps showing can't quite identify the other packs yet, haven't opened it yet. Seems to be 4 or 5 different brands and 3 or 4 packs each.
