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.
