Howdy everyone, David here - no not that David, the other one - the one with too many baseball cards.
No, the OTHER David with too many baseball cards, the one with a blog. um. The one with a blog that shows lots of cards of players from a team who was in the 1995 World Series. No, the National League one. Ugh, forget it, call me dayf. I'm the guy who's let his blog go to seed while he was fooling about on Twitter as some guy named @CardJunk. Yeah! The idiot who's always tweeting about monster movies and soccer and cartoon horses! That one! You got it! --David's on vacation this week so I'm filling in on the pack opening thing. So let's open a pack!
2002 Topps Series 2 Jumbo pack!
So here's the 411 on this pack: a dozen years or so I picked up this jumbo pack at a deep discount at the flea market. Having failed to pull any Mojo Hitz ™ I put the pack in a box and forgot about it until after I had completed my 2002 set. So now I'm passing the savings on to YOU!

Up next: howzabout some Bowzooka Signers? Or something like that.
