Wal-Mart $9.99 Value Pack: Three Packs of 2006 Topps Opening Day

Continuing with our Wal-Mart Value Pack, here's three packs of Topps' 2006 Contractual Obligation Product: Opening Day.

Pack #1
Nick Johnson
Zack Greinke
Melvin Mora
Joe Mauer
Chien-Ming Wang
Tim Hudson
SI For Kids Khalil Greene (1:1)
One individually wrapped slab of Stale Gum

Pack #2
Mark Prior
Steve Finley
Livan Hernandez
Randy Johnson
Jeremy Bonderman
Alfonso Soriano
SI For Kids Tadahito Iguchi
Another wrapped slab of Stale Gum

Pack #3
Lance Berkman
Mike Sweeney
Jorge Posada
Jimmy Rollins
Carston Charles Sabathia
John Smoltz
SI For Kids Manny Ramirez
More gum

Just like the 2004 Opening Day pack I opened yesterday, 2006 Opening Day has the same design as regular Topps, only with cyan colored foil stamping. Unlike the '04 pack I opened yesterday, each '06 pack comes with one of 25 Opening Day exclusive SI for Kids inserts and a stick of bubble gum.

Speaking of which... Even though this pack is less than a year-and-a-half old, and each slab of bubble gum is individually sealed (for your protection), this did not prevent each stick from shattering like a wine glass at an Ella Fitzgerald concert when dropped onto a table from a height of 12-inches. And before you ask, no, I'm not eating it.

Again, since I don't collect Opening Day, all these cards can be had for the price of an SASE.

Why Topps kept this crap for their dollar product and kiboshed Topps Total, I'll never know.
