Fairfield repack plus bonus

Fairfield keeps coming up with new packaging for old cards. This is the latest.
The box had 4 unopened packs (2012 Topps Opening Day, 2011 Topps Chrome, 2007 Ultra, and 2008 Upper Deck Spectrum), 50 loose cards and a BONUS.  For $7.99.

I won't keep you hanging, here's the bonus.

It's a 2003 Fleer Collectable Hummer H2! These were sold in a blister back with a player card. It's 2.5 inches long and pretty detailed. There's one just like it on sale on eBay right now for $8.

None of the cards were as exciting as this but here's a sample.

1983 Donruss #400 Tom Lawless
Photographer's direction: "Tom, please look over my right shoulder and try for as vacant a stare as possible".

1984 Topps #497 Bud Anderson
 I never heard of this guy but if hair translated into talent this guy wouldn't have been huge.

1987 Sportflics #49 Fred Lynn
Did anyone actually like these cards? I don't. But Lynn is a Player I Collect, so I'll be keeping this.

1989 Fleer #285 Bo Jackson
This was a surprise. A common Bo Jackson that I didn't have.

1990 Topps Stickers #117 John Kruk
There were 8 of these sticker cards in the box including 3 Phillies I didn't have.

1991 Upper Deck #799 Bud Black
Here's a rare card, a pitcher batting.  Looks like maybe he got a hit.

2011 Topps Chrome #114 Carlos Beltran

Pretty good photo.
