I Searched 2012 Topps Archives Packs Today

I did something this morning I hadn't done in well over a year: I called a baseball card shop to see if a new product was in stock.  They told me that 2012 Topps Archives hadn't arrived yet but they were expecting it in the afternoon.  So I went around and found Archives in person today at Target and while there was a box of retail packs I went with two value packs instead.  

As in previous releases you can clearly see the name of the bottom card on the reverse side of these value packs. "Do I dare?" I thought to myself.   So I pulled a few of the packs off the rack and took a look to see if there were any Bryce Harper or Yu Darvish rookie cards staring back at me.  No such luck, but I did find packs with Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau base cards.

Here are the two cards for which I denigrated myself to the lowest of the low.   More detailed scans of these packs will soon be up on Heartbreaking Cards' sister blog A Pack To Be Named Later.  

#90 Joe Mauer
#175 Justin Morneau
