Repacked Repack for $2.99

I had to stop by the local discount store to pick up some antifreeze for my mother's car. While in tere, I stopped by the end of the aisle with cards.  I saw a 6-pack repack for 6 bucks and almost bought it.  Then, I noticed a different section of repacks for $2.99.  Six packs for three bucks!? Can't pass that up.  So, I didn't.  I also grabbed a Clark Bar.  If you have never experienced the awesomeness that is a Clark bar, you need to at least once.  Of course, they used to be made in Pittsburgh, so I grew up eating them.

In any case, this repack ended up being a repack of a "Legends" repack. The stock card header was cut and the UPC was covered with another UPC.  It smells of dirty card shenanigans. Guess I'll find out when I bust open the packs.  Here's the kicker:

The pack were arranged so that you couldn't tell it was basically two of each kind of pack. There are two packs of 2005 Topps Opening Day, two packs of 2005 Topps Updates & Highlights, and two packs of Tristar Hidden Treasures - what are repacks in and of themselves!

Holy smokes, I hit the trinity of repackdom - a repacked pack in a repack blister of a repack blister. My head can't take it anymore.

I ran out of time to open and post them, so consider this a teaser... Coming next post: Busting the repacked repack...


  1. Wow, that's like the holy grail of junk! Watch - you'll win the 1933 Babe Ruth contest in the Hidden Treasures pack (now expired).

  2. Sounds like you got Punk'd. Good luck!
