Three Pack 2009 Goodwin Champions Retail Break

GoodwinPacksIt’s clear to me that 2009 Goodwin Champions is going to be my cheapo baseball card fix for the rest of the year. Priced at $1.99 per pack (4 cards per), I don’t feel too guilty about buying a couple packs whenever I am at a big box store. I just need to stay away from those blasters — $19.99 is a hard pill to swallow these days.

Pack 1: Ted Williams, Paul Molitor, Koji Uehara MINI, Buffalo Bill Cody

Another one for the Red Sox collection

Pack 2: Hiroki Kuroda, Smarty Jones MINI, Carlos Delgado BLACK MINI, Adrian Peterson Anniversary card

I love this card ... and I am not even a horse racing mark.

Good opportunity to show off the back of the black minis.

Comments: Three packs, 12 total cards — 8 baseball players, a poker player, a football player, a “Wild West Showman” and a fucking horse. This stuff is awesome. In all seriousness, this is the kind of enjoyment I like out of cheapo packs. I loved the Teddy Ballgame in pack No. 1, loved the contents of Pack No. 2 — the Smarty Jones is pretty kick ass, even though I am not a horse racing guy — and the Pujols Mini in Pack No. 3 was worth the price of admission, to use a cliche. I have an affinity to Pujols cards — base cards, parallels, inserts, game-used, whatever. I love them ALL.
