Last year Wal-Mart blasters had a special History of Baseball Cards pack in all their blasters. Topps swiped that insert set for Hobby boxes this year so Wally World had to go to plan B. It looks like they took a page from Turkey Red and got some Dick Perez cards to tempt the masses. Let's rip a pack, shall we?
Bonus pack? No fair. The old bonus packs had a clear wrapper so you could see what you were getting. Oh well, let's rip:
WMDP1 Manny Ramirez
WMDP2 Ryan Howard
WMDP3 Cameron Maybin
These are pretty dang nice! Only ten cards in the set too so a couple of blasters should get you most of it. I must emphasize the should part. You could end up with two of the exact same pack. I haven't seen a checklist anywhere, so I'm not sure who are cards 4-10. These are also inserted into regular Wal-Mart packs at 1 in 4 packs. The backs have a canvas look to them and give little personal tidbits about the players. Manny Ramirez loves classic cars (really?), Cameron likes to fish and now is a fish, and Ryan Howard was a trombone player. Yeah Ryan! Fellow trombone player! Although to be honest I played trombone as a stepping stone to tuba, but brass players gotta stick together.
