From Awesome To Meh In The Click Of A Mouse

First off, there is a selection of some of the cool things under the tree this year. The fifth season of SNL, DVDs of Lost Highway (finally in widescreen!) and Young Mr. Lincoln, the first John Swartzwelder novella, a smattering of card packs and a 2011 White Sox team calender (already rendered obsolete by the inclusion of Bobby Jenks). Other things included cologne and Blu-ray discs of The Hangover and Paths Of Glory (which I won't be able to play from the lack of a Blu-ray player, but should sometime in 2011).

In one of the packs of Topps second series packs...
A bonus Christmas gift of a code card! Cool, maybe that 2006 card of Rob Mackowiak will finally be mine. Again. Or I could hit the jackpot and get a vintage common. I've learned that I will never pull something cool, like a Pete Rose rookie or a (Topps favorite) Mickey Mantle card from his playing days. No Brewers Hank Aaron cards will ever be unlocked by me. No fifties card will ever be unlocked by me. I'm OK with that. I'm perfectly happy and surprised that I unlocked a common from 1964.

So I entered the code and...








A 1980 checklist card. Meh.

That won't ruin the good cheer and it won't taint the other gifts. It's just less than I expected from a bonus. Or it could just be karma.

Merry Christmas!!!

Ouch! I got lucky and got a 1960 Ray Boone with the code I got from a pack today. I better get off the computer now before I get caught! LOL

That's just rotten. It's like you didn't even get a card.

I should have known. The lottery scratch-offs didn't win anything either. :-)

Nice code pull, JT!
