2013 Topps Heritage Blaster Box and A Rack Pack

I decided to head to Target to see what the Topps Heritage series had to offer.  While there I wasn't sure whether to buy a couple rack packs or a blaster pack, hell I ended up leaving with both. I was really impressed, I seem to really like the 1964 design and the thick cardboard feel. I was hoping to pull some Giants cards since I try complete the Giants team set in the Heritage series. I pulled a couple inserts and rookies, I was overall very pleased even though I didn't pull a hit. Thanks for reading.
Probably the best card I pulled, as we all know Machado is a great young up and comer and Bundy is one of the best pitching prospects in MLB so this card was a great pull.
I pulled 5 Giants for my team set project, but best of all I got a Barry Zito card as you guys will come to find out I am the biggest Planet Zito fan threw thick and thin, but nonetheless its a great looking card. I will soon post about my Zito collection.
Sweet Cain and Posey Insert
Here are more inserts I got which I really liked, especially the 2012 NL Pitching Leaders card.
Lastly here are the Dodgers cards, I pulled a the brawler Greinke and the red hot Carl Crawford . I like to always complete the Dodgers Team set for my girlfriend even though it burns my skin when I touch any Dodger items.

Upcoming Appearance-Tim Wallach

Harry's Dugout will be have another player appearance this Saturday, this time it will have 5 time All-star Tim Wallach. Autographs will be limited to 300, they are already pre-selling items for the event on there website, which I linked at the bottom. Tim Wallach is underrated because he was a great player for the now extinct Montreal Expos in the 80's. Since I don't have Wallach's autograph I am gonna try to make this event. The prices are great and it should be another great event at Harry's Dugout.

What: Autograph Signing
Who: Tim Wallach
When: April 6th, 2013
Where: Harry's Dugout
10715 W Beverly Blvd

Buster Posey $167 Million Dollar Man

The San Francisco Giants have signed Buster Posey to a nine-year, $167 million contract, according to multiple reports.
The deal, which is the longest in franchise history, runs through the 2021 season with a team option for 2022.
There is also a full no-trade clause for the duration of the contract.

Junkies Thoughts: As a BIG time Giants fan, I love this move. We lock up a franchise player in Posey, he is young, is a great leader (2010 and 2012 World Series Champion)and has already proven he can put up MVP numbers (.336 Avg./ 24 HR / 103 RBI).The Giants also saved some money believe it or not, if the Giants would have let Posey hit the free agent market he could have easily commanded 200 million clams. Overall the Giants made the smart and right move in locking up Posey, and once again the Giants show us fans, that they are committed to continue the recent championship success. GO GIANTS!!!

Flashback Fridays-Steve Garvey at Sports Authority

 I had always wanted to attend an autograph signing, but it took years for me to finally head out to attend. The event was at a Grand Opening for a Sports Authority in Northridge.  I headed out to try to get my 71' Topps Steve Garvey rookie card signed. When we arrived the turn out was quite small, I would say about 25 people were in line. Mr.Clean arrived on time and started signing away. We were told by a Sports Authority employee that he was signing 2 items per person. My Girlfriend brought along a baseball so we decided to get it signed as well. The signing was great and Garvey could not have been any nicer. Overall it was a great experience. I want to thank Steve Garvey and Sports Authority for the event. Thanks for reading Junkies.
The ball my girlfriend Marlene got signed by Steve Garvey, He was nice enough to add a 74' NL MVP inscription.
Here is the Topps card i got signed by Garv
