Duel Blaster Wars: 2008 Topps Stadium Club - Pack 8

Continuing the 2008 Topps Stadium Club Blaster Wars, it's time to crack open pack #8, the final pack of the blasters.

Pack 8

Blaster 1:
17. B.J. Upton
32. Roy Halladay (+5 points, 1 for each camera I could find in the photo)

79. Derrek Lee
106. Eric Hurley
21. Jacoby Ellsbury - First Day Issue
Total: 5 points

Blaster 2:
49. John Smoltz
70. Brian McCann
134. Wladimir Balentien
149B. Hiroki Kuroda - First Day Issue (+10 points, needed it!)

Beam Team Auto - Black & White Version:
BTA-DY. Delwyn Young (#59/99) (That's gotta be worth +40 points. The Black & White version autographs are seeded 1 in every 460 packs!)

Total: 50 points

Standings so far:
Blaster 1:
39 points
Blaster 2: 109 points
Total cards knocked off my want list: 6

Well, an autograph turned up but it was in Blaster 2...clearly I should have bought Blaster 2 and left Blaster 1 on the shelf. At least I got a few cards that I needed...and a fairly sweet auto! As always, any card that I didn't list as "needed" are available for trade...check out my want list and make an offer!

They made black and white versions of the Beam autos?

What? Why?

The local Target has Stadium Club Blasters for $9.99. After seeing that maybe I should give it a shot.

Night owl: I don't know why...I LOVE the stained glass look on the "regular" Beam Team autos...the black and whites don't do much for me, even if they are serially numebered.

Flash: That's exactly what I did...one blaster was pretty good, the other was lousy - I guess it's a gamble but a much better gamble at 9.99 instead of 19.99!
