A Quck Blaster Break - Just for More Kicks and Giggles (Part 1)

A little over a month ago, I opened up a blaster of 2012 Goodwin Champions.  I mentioned back then that I actually had two such blasters - and now that the group break is over, it's time to bust open the second blaster here on the blog.  If you missed the first time around (post 1, post 2, and post 3), I'll be doing something similar this time where I will once again show off any cool, interesting, or simply weird cards.  I'll also have to split this up into multiple posts - after all, the blaster does hold 12 packs (the one good thing about 2012 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions blasters)!

PS:  Before I begin, I'm holding a contest in which it is not yet too late to join.  It should be a lot of fun - and a great way to drive traffic to your own blog.  I'm encouraging both newcomers and grizzled veterans (and everyone in between) to join in the fun!

Pack 1:
62.  Richard Petty
63.  David Robinson
84.  Don Mattingly
98.  Maryeve Dufault

I guess Dufault is Canada's answer to America's Go Daddy's Danica Patrick.  I had never heard of Dufault before, but here's a screen capture of what a quick Google (image) search turns up.

Yeah, I don't think she's trying to market herself as an expert race car driver either.

Pack 2:
23.  Elgin Baylor
38.  Billy Hamilton
71.  Charles White

Mini:  42.  Clint Dempsey

First, the Billy Hamilton card is not of the Reds' speedy outfielder (unfortunately for me).  Second, the Dempsey mini isn't bad - but how could I not scan that Charles White card?  Dude's got some swag*.

*I'm not really sure what that means either, don't worry.

Pack 3:
39.  Jerry Rice
44.  Chris Paul
90.  Clyde Drexler

169.  Steve Bloomer

I think part of my hangup with the 2012 Goodwin set is that it appears to be printed on recycled cereal boxes.  The cardboard quality is so terrible (and even the cutting of the cards seems sloppy).  Also, this pack had nothing worth noting so I scanned Drexler standing in front of what I believe is a poolside cabana.

Pack 4:

80.  Randy Couture
95.  Me'Lisa Barber / Mikele Barber
130.  Marques Colston
Mini:  51.  Justin Blackmon

Uh, what a dud pack.  Have a scan of a mini because why not?  The blaster states oh-so-proudly that you get five per blaster after all.

The Drexler card reminds me of some of the rookies/draft picks from 1992 Bowman baseball.

"Dude's got some swag*."

No worries, as a high school teacher who hears this word a few dozen times a day I can confirm that you used it appropriately.
