I saw Value packs and Blasters in Toys R Us in Gaithersburg, MD. Left them there for others since I already opened a bunch.

As of Sunday, Walmart and Target in Germantown, MD did not have any. I will be checking again today.

Yeah, I checked Modesto pretty thoroughly yesterday. I figured the Toys R Us would have something, but no.

Everyone keep in mind that someone may have gotten there before you. Don't give up hope...Bowman should be everywhere by the end of this week. And I can guarantee, it is a fun break. Lots of value to be had, even without hitting an auto. I NEVER enjoy retail because I never get anything good, but I had a blast with Bowman. If you haven't seen my break, check it out. I had a few crazy blasters. Odds are not good to pull and auto, but damn, out of 8 packs per box, I saw lots of color and Harper.

For all you Maryland folks, I'll be hitting Walmart and Target in Germantown and Frederick tonight, I'll report back. Stay tuned.

The dealer I got my value box from said retail wasn't supposed to go "live" until the 17th.

That can't be true. The reason it's not in more places is because of timing issues. Places like Target and Walmart could care less that people are trying to bust down the doors for this stuff. They will put product out based on their own schedule.

Fyi, I doubt they will have it, but Best Buy also has baseball cards up by the registers. Incase you didn't know that. Not sure if they get stuff the same time as Target and Walmart, but it's just one more place to check.

They could care less? Don't you mean they couldn't care less?

I am lucky enough to have 4 Targets on the way home from work so I don't have to go out of my way for cards. All 4 stores were freshly stocked with Bowman! Each had 3 blasters, 8 rack packs, and a gravity feed box. I bought out the racks and blasters since those have more for the buck. Left the looseys.

It is interesting though that each store is getting such a light shipment for opening week. 3 blasters and 8 racks is nothing when a product like this comes out. And since most stores stock every other week, there could be a legitimate drought until the next shipments come. Maybe not 2010 all over again, but it's damn close.

Yeah, I stopped by tonight. Nothing. I'll let you know if they stock Germantown. When I ran into the Beckett Associates lady that stocks Walmart, she said she also does the Frederick stores too. Based on the Germantown Walmart, I think she changed her scheduled to Thursday. The reason I say this, I went to Walmart last Thursday during lunch and the shelves were bare...I went back on my way home and someone had restocked it. She used to come on Tuesday around 12:30 down here.

Don't worry, target stores will be loaded with it soon enough. Mine had about 20 blasters and 20 rack packs sitting there today. The boy and I opened 2 blasters, hit a harper base, and are done with the stuff. The retail version is all junked up with retro inserts. Focusing on our Gypsy Queen set, now that is some GOOOOD retail, it is loaded.

Wal-Mart in Fishers, Indiana had Blasters, Rack Packs and Gravity Feeder today around 5pm. All the blasters were gone when I got there, but the lady says they put them out today and someone bought them all.

Got 8 rack packs at TRU on Winchester in San Jose. I left the three blasters there if anyone wants them. Hit a purple and a base Harper so I am happy.
