A Couple of Blasters... of Americana...

During our weekly grocery shopping trip to Target, we usually always stop by the card aisle just to see if somehow a blaster of 2011 Gypsy Queen showed up... well, I've had no such luck but the Hotwit has had copious amounts of luck finding $11 blasters of 2009 Americana. So we snatched 2 more this week. Basically you get a whole bunch of base cards (useless at this point because we have the set about 4 times over), an insert and a "hit"... usually a movie poster relic, which is what my wife is after anyways... so here's the loot:
Our inserts were these "Proofs"... which I've learned is just a fancy way for them to throw some serial numbers on a card and call them something different. Both #'ed out of 250. Duval has been in various movies, including the creepy bunny in Donnie Darko. Kleiser is a director, his credits including Big Top Pee Wee, Honey I Blew Up The Kid, The Blue Lagoon, oh and some movie called Grease.

Next up, the the hits:
A "Proof" of a relic! Nice. This is numbered /100. Shelton was on Dallas, was a Playboy cover girl and was Miss USA in 1970, not to mention 1st runner up in the Miss Universe pageant. I'm sure the Plutonians were upset at finishing 2nd runner up, but they can just deal with it. This will find it's way onto eBay. Finally, the 12 Angry Men Movie Poster relic, on the back is a swatch of clothing from Henry Fonda and is numbered /500. If anyone has movie poster relics to trade, let me know!

Well, have a good day everyone!
