Well, that changes now. I have found a pack so one sided, so region specific that it breaks all known logic. With only four cards to a pack, you'd think that there would be a greater chance for variety. WRONG!
The facts of this pack are as follows. I purchased this pack late last week at a Target in Joliet, Illinois. Joliet is roughly an hour southwest of Chicago. You may be familiar with its prison, which has been featured in such classics as The Blues Brothers and the television show Prison Break. It's built up a better reputation in more recent years, but I'm getting way off topic. On to the pack opening!

Checklist #1 of 2
Students: Work Hard, Get Cards featuring David Wright of the New York Mets
HOLY SCHNIKE! How did so many Mets end up in one package? I call shenanigans, Officer Barbrady! Four Mets and a Twin who is a current Met. That's insane! That's not even fun to collect, unless you're a huge Mets fan.
The cards are nice and shiny and have a hypnotic lull to them, but I'm not a fan of packs stacked with one team, unless it's my team, which the Mets are not. At least it wasn't the Yankees.
