Sometimes it just can't be helped.
I try to limit myself as much as possible when it comes to buying random packs of cards. You never get what you're looking for, and you spend about 100% more money than if you bought the equivalent singles.
But, I have an incredible weakness, and it is the Target "Value" Packs. MULTIPLE random packs from random sets overloads my BS detector every time. And this time it included EIGHT BONUS CARDS.
The fine folks at Excell Marketing (Target's distributor) certainly don't play magic. I'm seeing in my mind's eye a row of gorillas, stuffing fistfuls of cards into plastic clamshells.
Well, I found out what was in there. I took one for the team.
Here I am:
So totally worth it. I feel so vindicated.
So now that you've seen this travesty, hopefully it will inspire you to go out and bust your own Target Extreme Value Packs. Ha!
