  • "New packs in stores" Thread

    Mod won't sticky this thread but I thought it might be a heads-up for all us pack buyers from stores. How it will work, the FIRST person to actually see a new series in store (e.g. 2008 Upper Deck) can post which series they saw (please be honest). Then we can know that the series is either in store or coming to stores pretty soon. It should save useless trips when you're just wondering if anything new has come in, and get us in on the action sooner.

    Are you talking about retail or hobby shops?

    The 2008 Topps Heritage and 2008 Topps Moments and Milestones are out in hobby shops, I bought a few packs of each last week.

      I guess that's another thing we should discuss. Probably retail shops. You can call a hobby shop and ask them, retail shops don't know what's going on

          Not at all, but now people (like me) won't have to bug him about because it's already settled

            I was in Target and Wal-Mart today in South Florida, and both had 2008 series 1 Topps and Upper Deck, no Heritage or any other 2008 baseball though.

              They have been in for a while, but thanks for thinking of the thread. Topps says 08 Opening Day Baseball is supposed to be "released" March 12, and Upper Deck Spectrum is supposed to be "released" March 25, whatever those mean

                Chameleon Comics on Maiden Lane in NYC (a block from the World Trade Center site) had the Opening Day Baseball packs for sale today.

                What's the purpose of the Opening Day cards, anyway?????

                    Opening Day is a cheap product. If you just want to pickup some "stars" for 0.99/pack then there you have it. I've never been a fan of it. They are also the packs that you mostly find crammed in the 5 or 10 pack cubes at Wal-Mart.

                      Upper Deck First Edition is the same thing. I got a random pack at Wal-Mart yesterday. I pulled an Indian, so I was happy.

                        2008 Topps at the local Target, complete with a ridiculous Manny Ramirez posturing pose on the box.

                              The Bowmans are released on May 12. I can't wait...

                              BTW, as for the scout autographs everyone's complaining about, there are actually some decent ones (Jon Deeble, Randy Milligan, Craig Shipley, Epy Guerrero) along with one key card in Omar Minaya.
