Topps cards in retail stores have officially pulled the Nanny McPhee line. When I want cards, but do not need them, they won't be there. But when I need cards, but do not want them, they will be. It's rather sad, really, but there it is.
So every week I'd desperately scour the Target or Wal-Mart shelves hoping for some relevant card product to be there, and nothing ever was. Again and again and again. And so today, as I went to Target for some other things, I didn't expect to find any cards.
And suddenly there some were. On the exact opposite side of the standee as I was used to. A few blasters and rack packs of Heritage, alongside some stragglers from flagship and Opening Day.
Actual cards. New cards. That I could buy. Who could imagine?
The aisles weren't really being policed, so I was able to walk away with a blaster and two rack packs. There was more than enough left that it didn't exactly feel like robbery or anything. But still, I didn't have to go online for Heritage, it was just there.
I'll cover the rack packs, then the blaster. I'd been excited for this year's Heritage as well, as 1972 Topps is a set I do have some fondness for.
