I stopped by the card shop and picked up my second 1989 Topps Vending box in hopes to put a big dent in the cards I still need to complete the set. I purchased a Vending box earlier to jump the collection, I assumed another 500 cards would yield a decent amount of cards that I need. Well it was uncanny how many cards I already had. Almost so that I have a suspicion that one of two things happened. One, the vending boxes (both from the same place) were not unsearched, or two that all vending boxes are not random as I initially thought, but contain the same cards. Out of 500 cards I got an impressive 7 new cards for my set. Keep in mind the set comes solely from the first vending box and one pack that came from my Secret Santa (give or take a couple cards from you fine fokes).
The only good thing that will come out of it, is that 1,000,000 cards for kids will be getting some donated cards. A great idea by the way, check it out if you haven't already.
So does anyone have any ideas? Am I just THAT unlucky?
