2009 Topps Baseball Series 2

The fifth and final pack from the Alleys. A 2009 Topps Series 2. The last time I opened some Topps series 2, I was surprised to find the Walmart black version. I understand that Target had its own version of this set as well. I am still looking for these Red Sox from the base set:
89 Jon Lester/Jason Bay HL
171 Jeff Bailey
267 Michael Bowden (RC)

There are 12 cards per pack (10 if it contains a relic card!)No surprise black border or other variation.
The Pack:
#340 Joe Mauer Twins
#354 Mike Aviles Royals
#472 Bill Hall Brewers
#518 Chris Perez Cardinals
#534 Skip Schumaker Cardinals
#571 Noah Lowry Giants
#576 Don Wakamatsu Mariners
#640 B.J Upton Bay Rays
#653 Nick Evans Mets
#TTT36 Ian Kinsler Rangers
#LG-15 Ichiro Mariners
#TR71 Albert Pujols Cardinals
As far as packs go I think that was a pretty decent one. No Red Sox, (it was as Cardinals pack for sure) but there were some nice cards inside. There is something oddly comforting about pulling an Ichiro card.
On another note - If anyone has the Jacoby Ellsbury Walmart or Target variations or the Jacoby ToppsTown from this set I would be interested in setting up a trade.
