3rd Blaster of 2013 Topps

I'm picking up my Hobby Box of 2013 from Cleve's (LCS) this Friday and I'm giddy with anticipation.   I have to say it's going to be hard to top the fun I've had from opening the retail blasters though.  I guess I've had some good luck so far with the 3 that I've bought.  Most of the comments on the first two I opened Monday revolved around the number of Bryce Harper cards I hit

I decided to pick up a 3rd blaster yesterday, and in my opinion, my good luck continues.  The only complaint I have is that this time I got a Commemorative Patch rather than one of those nifty rookie card reproduction patches.  But this was still pretty cool:

And, let me get this out of the way, I did get another Bryce Harper card:

I would rather have hit a Jurickson Profar, but I'm sure there will be one of those in the hobby box Friday.

My favorite card in the box though:

This card is so brown and so beautiful!  Great, great card!

I guess I also got one of those SP cards of guys reaching over a fence:

I'm a little dubious on this.  I already see a bunch of these on eBay, and I get one in a blaster so I'm not sure how "SP" these really are.  But it's a cool card nonetheless. 

And I got a few good inserts too. 

I really need to stop buying blasters, but I'm on a roll so until the lovely wife catches me, there's probably more to come.

Last year I pulled an SSP Harper out of a blaster of Archives, so it still could be a SP.
