Buyer Beware: 2010 Topps Target Blasters w/ and w/o retro packs

Just a quick word of warning to anyone who is contemplating buying some 2010 Topps retail blaster packs from Target. There are two DIFFERENT types of blasters on the shelves now, ones that have two RETRO packs and ones that contain only basic 2010 Topps cards. The packaging looks nearly identical, but you must read the package before buying, Topps makes it pretty clear what is inside. All of the blasters have the commemorative manufactured patches, but not all have the retro cards that many collectors are clamoring over. On that note, it would not surprise me if the same thing is happening at Wal-Mart, where consumers expect to receive two packs of special Black Backround cards. Buyer Beware.
