Who says you can't get anything good in a blaster

So Kim and I went out to Walmart for some ornament hooks. We stopped by their card section, which was severely lacking, so we decided to go to Target. I looked for some Goudey blasters and picked up 3 of them. Told Kim, "Pick one." She proceeded to pick up each box one by one and hold them. She points to the first box and says, "That one." I quickly put the others back and held onto the one she anointed as we perused Target.

We get home and while she tended to the tree, I began busting my blaster. On the second pack I saw a Yankee Stadium Legacy card of George Pipgras.

I remarked to Kim how I've never gotten one of these before because I've never heard of this guy. And proceeded to the next card.

"Short print card," I say.

"And another, oh look at this." It was a Brandon Webb patch. I hand it to Kim so she could look at the patch. She promptly replies "See, you should've videoed this." Oh how right she was.

The talley is 1 YSL, 2 SPs and a relic card.

I caught a glimps at the bottom of the next card and saw "Graphs." I knew what that meant, a Goudey autograph card.

The rest of the pack went as follows:

Hit Parade
Mini Base

One of the reasons I picked the Goudey Blaster is because of how well Newspaperman did in his blaster break on Cardboard Icons.

Needless to say the rest of the box was a mild disappointment.

I pulled 3 more short print cards (two of which I needed), another YSL card of Urban Shocker (I was shocked by his name), and 4 cards I needed to help complete my set.

While Glen Perkins and Brandon Webb aren't my idea of a great pull, the idea of pulling a YSL card, a relic, an auto, 2 short prints, a parade of champions and a mini-card all in one pack is unfathomable to me.

Kim is picking all my packs and blasters from now on. If I order a box from the Internet, she's clicking the submit button for me.

I don't think I've ever even HEARD of getting both a relic AND an autograph in one blaster.
Spooky--in a good way.
