Shopko is underrated when it comes to card selection. On one hand, the prices are steeper (blasters are $21.99 instead of $19.99), but you can find some gems that are long ago snatched up at the more trafficked retail card sellers (Target & Wal-Mart).
With the David Bote hysteria I decided to check in to my local Shopko and see if there were any 2018 Bowman in stock. This is the only product to find any Bote. He has a retail only autograph and that’s it (other than Topps Now and minor league team set issues).
Lo and behold there were three Bowman blasters on the shelf and I scooped them all up, along with a few 2018 Topps Chrome hanger packs.
No Bote, but a couple Kris Bryant cards, Anthony Rizzo, and a prospect card of Oscar De La Cruz.
Also both the paper and chrome of prospect Alex Lange.
The Topps Chrome yielded a Rizzo pink Refractor.
A regular Refractor of Addison Russell.
And a base Willson Contreras.
