Two Rack Packs and a $10 box of Topps Series 1

I'm one of those poor souls that, immediately arriving upon a gigantic mall such as the Palisades, only wanting to find someplace with cards. So, I swung by the Target and picked up some. And it was some pretty nice stuff, as I found a lot of base cards I needed.

Rack Pack 1-
191- Chris Capuano.
227- Jose Altuve. On the short list of reasons the Astros can somehow succeed. And yes, pun intended.
70- Todd Frazier, Pt. Pleasant man
126- Dan Uggla, whom Braves fans really want to get back to the stuff he was doing in 2011.
36- Jered Weaver. He is always either yelling or making a weird face on a card. Here he does the latter.
112- Mark Reynolds. Strikeout King.
23- Jemile Weeks, who needs to return to the family business.
100- Mike Moustakas
86- Henry Rodriguez RC
