I bought a bonus box of 2008 Topps series 1 at Wal-Mart

I bought a bonus box of 2008 Topps series 1 at Wal-Mart this weekend. Most of you already know you get 5 packs and a bonus 3 card pack. Along with this Ichiro I got 2 other Dick Perez cards. I have been reading a lot of baseball card bloggs where everyone is talking about the insert cards. I go through moods sometimes I like insert cards sometimes I don't. It is just hard for me to pay $2 for a pack of 10 cards which averages out to .20 a card. I am from the old school, I like the regular base set cards but when you go to these web-sites to do trading and stuff they will always want to know what you have for insert cards to trade. Now, this is when I like to get insert cards, when I can trade them. As I debate what I am trying to say in this blogg is I guess I dream of the day when I used to buy a whole pack of cards for a dime. I guess those days are long gone! The Perez cards are nice looking!

I'm with ya there! I just can't bring myself to plunk down $5 or $10 for a PACK of cards when I once bought BOXES for that! Yeesh!

I hate what insert cards have done to the hobby. I prefer to go to the card shop and dig through the dime box, even though I know I'm not going to get any Pujols, etc. that way.
