Random Review: 2014 Panini Certified

November 28, 2015 § Leave a comment

Just when I thought I had run out of birthday cards, my brother gave me $50. Naturally I took it and a few days later, I headed to Valley Sports Cards. This time I grabbed a 2014 Panini Certified football hobby box. I tend to shy away from football hobby boxes but this rookie class has done me good, remember that Beckham I pulled? I had a hunger for a Blake Bortles, Kelvin Benjamin,  Mike Evans, or pro bowl lineman Zack Martin. I didn’t any of those players, not even a base rookie with the 50 cards in the box. What I got instead was well…

I opened the box and immediately this comes out:

Basically it says we are probably going to screw you out of the card in the box that you were looking for. I was hoping against hope that this wouldn’t be the case, but this note was a dead giveaway.

So now, I have to pay shipping on a birthday gift. If I wanted to do that, I would’ve put this money in the bank and bought a box online. I wanted instant gratification.

Bad news aside, I did like the rest of the cards in the box.

I can’t get past the fact that I got points instead of a hit. I have never had rewards points so I hope the shipping isn’t too bad. I am very disappointed in this box.
