99 Luftbaloons...I Mean...99 Topps Cards Wanted from 2010 Topps Series 1!!!

I went to WalMart yesterday, and found their stash of baseball cards (instead of putting them in front by the registers, they're now all the way in the back in the toy section, where they should be. Anyway, I realized that packs at Target, packs with the security tag had the elusive 1951 Red Back inserts. So I thought if I got the packs with the security tags at Walmart, I'd have the same success finding the Blue Back inserts. So for an experiment, I bought ten packs, five with the tag, and five without (their easy to find, just look for the bump in the back).

The result? Ten packs, one Blue Back card (Babe Ruth). And it was found in a pack...WITHOUT the security tag.

Yesterday, I mentioned I will be looking for 100 cards from 2010 Topps 1. Now, it's down to 99.

(In honor of a 99-card want list, here is Nena and 99 Luftballoons)

Oh, you wanted the English version...

I couldn't find a post on it, but I was wondering if you noticed anything strange on the backs of the Cards your mother threw Out. I have a number of the cards, and on the back behind the text are random baseball cards. While looking at them, I noticed that a few of the cards aren't even Topps cards. I see a '91 Donruss card on the left towards the middle, a '92 Score card right underneath it, and a '92 Leaf card towards the bottom right corner. Most of the rest of the cards in the photo appear to be Topps cards, but I find it strange that Topps would use card from other companies in a photo like that.
