Steel City Collectibles has blessed me again, this time in the form of a Twitter contest. On top of their low prices, they are always doing something for collecting fans. I won a hobby box of Panini’s 2015 Americana release. I previously won a box from their football pick em contest where I pulled an Odell Beckham autograph. Getting the Americana box was a pleasant surprise as I actually have bought a few retail packs of this release; some of you can attest to this as I have slipped some of the base cards in ‘Misery Packs.’ The box offered 4 hits and was a blast to open.
I didn’t pull anything in the galaxy of the Beckham autograph but I did have fun. The hits were horse racing heavy as I pulled the ‘Danica Patrick of horse racing’ and the most recent derby winner. I also pulled a WWE diva and a sweet Tiffani Thiessen cell insert; how can you go wrong with her. I will be honest the autograph sucked, as I can walk into any local store and bump into an actor with better credits. Sorry, Gary Owen, but you weren’t even credited in your last movie and even the caterer gets credited. The inserts overall were fun and the true gem; even the parallels were a beautiful shade of blue. The music lover in me loved the album inserts.
If I had the money, I would pick up a few boxes and try to put together a base set. At $45, you can’t go wrong. I would imagine that the majority of boxes are a lot better than the one I got; I mean you can’t get a worse autograph. I am positive about this box and willing to buy another one if the funds present themselves.
