Total Blaster 3

Today was the day where I opened the third blaster from the 2014 Total Memorabilia 20-blaster lot I purchased. It was not that great of a blaster, to be honest, but at least it wasn't the last one! It can only get better from here, right?

The good thing is, all five cards were new. The bad thing is, my tire piece is Bowyer, one of my all-time least favorite drivers.

My favorite card here is the Truex. With Dale Jr. out and questions as to if he will ever return, Martin Truex Jr. has stepped into the role of my favorite active driver. The mirror foil aspect takes it down a little bit, but I'm still happy to have it. And even though I am not a Bowyer fan, it gets me closer to completing the set, so there's that. And it means I don't have to spend any actual money to buy a Bowyer card to complete my set. In case it wasn't obvious, that is a goal of mine now that I have these 20 blasters to work through. I thought at first the Kahne red parallel was a duplicate but I was wrong, I had the gold version of the card, which is SN175. I knew I had seen the photo but I didn't remember the foil color I had. Oops. The Elliott Sadler is one of the few non-Cup cards in the set. The Rusty Wallace Hall of Fame Placque is the holofoil parallel.

  1. Your comment about not spending any money for Bowyer's card cracked me up.
