I was in Target tonight looking for some stuff. At the checkout aisle, I peeked over the counter hoping to see some NBA stickers, since I still need a boat-ton of those things, and instead I saw this.
Yeah, buddy! I was really excited about the NBA stickers and I don’t even collect NBA cards anymore. Imagine how excited I am for the MLB stickers finally existing once again.
Who else is going to be collecting this set? I know I’ll be sticking things in these pages.
Wanna see what they look like? Well, here’s the pack, which was in a box to the side of the album holder.
These stickers are tiny. I’d say about half the size of the Panini stickers that you may be used to. I like the foil pack wrapper, though. And that there are 8 stickers in there for $1. If it was less, I’d feel ripped off.
My first sticker was: Eric Hosmer. I love this trio, not because of the players, but they’re both facing Mora and ready to kill. Very nice symmetry. Ortiz wins the game face battle.
Stickers 4-6 were kind to me. A Cy Young Winner and a foil sticker of Jackie. I don’t know if any non-legends will be foil yet, but it’s looking like that’s a no. There also only appear to be 9 legends on the last page, although I haven’t flipped through every single page yet.
Two A’s in 8 stickers. Not sure how I feel about that. I guess it’s good to get them out of the way early. The stock is pretty thick. Not sure if the sticker will be sturdy or if that’s just the backing. I’m going to scan every blank page before I stick any.
1 pack down, 9 more to open! No Ryan Dempster, Kerry Wood, or Carlos Marmol on the Cubs page, though. That’s pretty disappointing considering Blake freakin’ DeWitt gets a sticker. This is late enough in the season that they could have at least put Darwin Barney in there instead of the 2nd string 2nd baseman.
