I had some good luck with “value packs” last year, so I was happy to see them make a return for 2012. This year’s value pack is basically the same as the first value pack that came out last year: 5 packs of Topps Flagship, 2 Hobby Packs of Heritage, a code card and a special chrome card (either Willie Mays, Ken Griffey Jr. or Mickey Mantle). I saw some today at my local Walmart and couldn’t help myself, even though I’m not especially interested in building either set. He are the highlights:
I love this Hamilton card, and I'm glad to get the gold sparkle parallel.
Nothing too interesting. The Golden Moments set is sort of interesting to me.
Here was the Chrome card- Willie Mays
Other than these two cards, my Heritage packs didn't provide squat. The Vogelsong is the Chrome parallel.
So, nothing earth shattering. I got 2 total code cards which yielded 2 ridiculous coins. I’m really due for a big hit in wax. I’m also due for a Die-Cut card from the code redemption program. I am 0-9 so far this year, with only a bunch of fictional worthless coins to show for my efforts.
Everything is for trade except the Hamilton Gold parallel.
