Since I had already collated the cards and put them away there was no saving the post. Two good glasses of lemonade came out of this big bucket of lemons though. First, it gives me an excuse to buy another blaster (not 2011 Topps, mine sucked) for this week.
Second, it gives me an extra post to make for the trade bait I got in the box. Which is cool as well. I am not collecting any of the inserts from this year's set with the exception of the Rockies, so everything I got in the blaster is up for grabs.
Here is what I have for trade from my National League East hot box

Kimball Champions Minis - claimed by the Dimwit

40 Michael Young - Rangers
Diamond Parallels - Colbey
233 Ramon Hernandez - Reds
278 Marco Scutaro - Red Sox
HH Ryan Howard / Jason Heyward - Phillies / Braves
HM Tommy Hanson / Mike Minor - Braves / Braves
LZ Evan Longoria / Ryan Zimmerman - Rays / Nationals

TLMP-DW David Wright - NY Giants claimed by Greg Z.
(wait what) yep it is a 1933 NY Giants patch for NY Met David Wright. What's next a Seattle Pilots logo on an Ichiro card (what?) damn you corrective link. So is this a Mets card or a Giants card or a manufactured POS? Or all 3?
