A few months back, probably even as far back as this time last year, I had gotten a blaster from Target of 2011 Topps Opening Day Baseball (There might be a blog entry for purchasing it along with another blaster or two but I don't have the time or the desire to hunt for it.) Anyway I finally busted it late last night Wednesday 28 November 2012 here is the video:

Ustream Video Part 1:
Ustream Video Part 2:
For some reason Ustream desided to break the video in two parts? I don't recall telling it to do that *sigh*. It also leaves out 2 cards at the point I was talking about the parallel I was talking about.

OK so here is the Pack by Pack breakdown:

194 Delmon Young Twins
212 Vernon Wells Blue Jays

now for the sportlots auction:
Three cards from: (I had at least 2 maybe all 3 not 100% sure as I'm still organizing and getting stuff Zistled. Plus one time I got a Team set of Senators from Ebay but it was only about 1/2 of the full team from '64)

From Ebay I got the 12 card set of the 1995 Fleer/SkyBox Batman & Robin The Animated Series Pop-ups I got it on sale for $4 bucks from $10 w/ $3 shipping. I already had two of them Catwoman and Batgirl so I have dupes of those two I might "pop" one of them to see the stand-up thing. I once saw another ebay auction for the set that showed them all opened. These appear to be unopened like my original two. Anyway they are numbered P1 - P12 and the list is as follows:

P1 - Batman
P2 - Robin
P3 - Batgirl
P4 - The Joker
P5 - Poison Ivy
P6 - Mr. Freeze
P7 - The Penguin
P8 - Clayface
P9 - The Riddler
P10 - Harley Quinn
P11 - Catwoman
P12 - Two-Face

Plus the dealer sent some bonus cards, they did it the smart way and sent some similar cards. Some dealers send cards that are totally unrelated and are obviously just sent as filler cards so the dealer can get rid of junk. These were also comic superhero related cards and were also Batman related:

1995 Fleer/Skybox Batman Master Series: Master Villains Chase Subset 2 of 10 Two-Face

1995 Fleer Batman Forever Metal
62 Double Kings - The Riddler and Two-Face
67 Robin
91 Gothem's Best - Robin
