Online breakers these days like to say “Boom” when they pull something significant.  Well, in 1994, if you were busting Ultra Series this was probably the best rookie insert possible.   

I manager to pull this tonight from a repack box at target.  Not exactly the object of my affection but a fun pull from a sealed pack of a product I wouldn’t even think about opening these days unless it was a bonus.
