*sits down, opened box and cards in and I ready to show this off. it's time for a new Cards Over Coffee*
I should have known.
I didn't stick with what I knew best, that a sequel never lives up to the original.
That goes with music, movies and even cards.
When I opened that first 2022 Stadium Club Chrome blaster box and hit two autographs and some other great cards, I should have known that it was going to be hard to beat.
And it was.
I found a second blaster last week and without thinking, without hesitation of any kind, I tossed it into the shopping cart carefree.
I skipped out of Walmart like a little child who found his favorite toy and immediately opened the box in the car hoping for the same magic as the original box.
Except this blaster didn't have any kind of magic and was a letdown like most highly promoted sequels.
This was my best base card, not that anyone can complain about adding a Mike Trout.
X-Factor parallels, the Musial is decent but meh on the rest.
And my last card,
I wanted to pull a Trophy Hunters, just didn't even get a player even close to who I wanted. It's a cool looking card.
And that was it. No autographs this time. Nothing that really stood out to me and most of this is available for trade as well.
*takes a sip before finishing up today's post*
I don't plan on opening up anymore of this product after the disappointing sequel.
In comments today, thoughts on my break and what movie sequel you felt lived up to the original. My favorite sequel, which I think outdid the first one was the new Jumanji movie series with the second one in Jumanji:The Next Level.
Also, my second cup of coffee this morning outdid the first. Which doesn't usually happen either.
Hope everyone has a great Tuesday.
