Wal-Mart $9.99 Value Pack: Two Packs of 2006 Topps Updates and Highlights retail

Pack #1
Cory Lidle (In Memoriam)
Lastings Milledge (RC)
Lance Berkman All-Star
Cubs Team Leaders
Mariners Team Leaders

Barry Bonds Bullshit Waste of Space: #715 (1:6)

Pack #2
Chris Woodward
Casey Janssen (RC)
Derek Jeter Season Highlights
Jose Reyes Season Highlights
Carlos Delgado Postseason Highlights
Lance Berkman Home Run Derby

Two takes on these packs:

Take #1: Why is the Cory Lidle card still booking for $4 Beckett HI? I've heard of "death bumps" but this is a little ridiculous, wouldn't you say?

Take #2: How nondescript are the Barry Bonds Home Run History mirror cards? I had absolutely no idea I pulled #715 until just now. I guess when over 700 versions of the same card are made, a collector would be expected to overlook such details.
