Cool pull from 2009 Heritage Hi# Retail

Went to Target tonight with the crazies. Not because I needed anything but that's just what I do when I'm in Kernserville. I got a couple fat packs and 4 retail packs.

I was waiting in the car for Kim and I couldn't wait so I opened a fat pack and got nothin. Then I opened one of the retail packs and I got something pretty damn cool.

It's a piece of seat from the old Seals Stadium.

The thing that really excited me about this is that I knew who the San Francisco Seals were. Three of the DiMaggio brothers (Joe, Vince and Dom) played for the Seals. I remember a very long time ago, I wrote a report about Joe Dimaggio and I thought his time (as well as his brothers') with the Seals was intriguing.

Having a piece of that stadium is pretty cool. I like it way better than the Adam Jones relic I got out of a hobby box. It isn't exactly a Roger Maris pants jersey. But getting a piece of baseball history in a retail pack is pretty frickin sweet.

Merry Christmas to everyone in the blogosphere. I'd like to give a shot out to William of Foul Bunt,PA of The Player To Be Named Later, Marie and Sooz of A Cardboard Problem, Happy Holidays to you and your families.

That is pretty cool. I had some of those from earlier products and sold them on eBay because I didn't care for them. (They were also from places I didn't care about.) And way to be like Sooz and open the packs in the car.

Merry Christmas to you and Kim =) Hope Santa brings you guys baseball cards. (And brings the Yankees someone not named Damon to play LF)

Thanks Pete. Glad you got the seat from Seals Stadium. I knew what it was too because I'm reading a book about the NY Giants and Brooklyn Dodgers' move west... Pretty cool stuff.
