Hey folks. I would not typically toot my own birthday horn, but Monday I turn 33 and am taking the day off, which is terrific because (for all of you Red Sox fans) you know that this is also Patriot Day, which is the day that they run the Boston marathon AS WELL AS host an early start Red Sox games. So basically at 8:00 left coast I will be parked in front of the blurry vision that is MLB Extra innings. I might luck out though and get HD coverage for that one.
Anyways, the wife will be at work, and kid at daycare, so the day is ALL MINE to do as I choose. I have a few bucks burning a hole in my pocket and would like to have something fairly nice to rip that day. I figure on your birthday if you get a higher-end box of something, then it increases your chances of hitting pay dirt. I am looking for some ideas of what to bust.
I am pretty spent on Goodwin,T206, and Topps flagship. I have also been unimpressed with Heritage and don't want a pile of lousy gum laying around the house. Typically, my shop (and I want to go to my lucky one) has mostly only recent stuff, so I have seen 2009 Bowman Sterling, 2009 Topps Unique, amongst others. There is also this crazy hockey box with a dinosaur on the front. Or I could go with another master box of Finest, though I am not super-crazy about serial-number refractors.
Toss out some ideas people. Consider it a choose your own adventure since I will be posting the results!
