Alfred Morris and Matt Davidson autographs for $2.75. I feel that I got a steal, especially in an area where there are numerous Cowboys fans. Davidson for a buck, that was numbered to 49 and cut, was worth the flyer to me. He strikes me as someone who will benefit from a change of scenery.

Six weeks ago I reviewed a box of a Target Repack product with a floor. I said that I bought two of them but only reviewed one. This is a quick review of the second one. For a link to the first one, I made this whole paragraph a link to it.
The packs were decent on paper but I didn’t pull anything. The jersey is a Mike Sweetney It shows him a Bulls jersey on the card but the piece is clearly from his Knicks day before he got traded for Eddy Curry. At least I got my Durant rookie card unlike my last box. The box was crap but I did have a minor win: I said I wanted a Celtics ‘Teenymate’ and pulled it.

I finally got my first trade on PackRip.com. I somehow pulled off a 3 for 3 trade. Considering the cards, it was minor in the grand scheme of things but still awesome.

I got two Panthers cards to add to my PC in Gaffney while giving up a jersey and insert card that I didn’t want. I was also able to swap out a WWE card that I didn’t want for one that I did. Again minor trade but it shows why PackRip.com is awesome. I turned the 3 non PC cards I had in the site into 3 PC cards. It is a perfect scenario in my book. I also want to note that I could view the new cards instantly once the trade was accepted as there wasn’t a wait for them to be moved to my profile.
There is also another aspect that I think is awesome, and one that I wish was in my fantasy leagues: a trade block list. This can be found in your profile.

I have gone into three shops locally looking for a single pack of WWE Undisputed. It is a product that I have coveted since I saw a few reviews of it. I saw that PackRip.com had it but sat on it for too long and it sold out, that is until I asked if they were planning on restocking it. To my surprise, I got an alert a few hours later saying that they put some up. A huge selling point that hobby shops have left is that they are personal. Well guess what, after that Twitter exchange with PackRip.com, I had similar feelings to the ones I have when my guy at the card shop shows me something he knows that I would like. Did I schmooze them enough, right there? Well I meant it. It was something I genuinely appreciated. I have one more minor perk I liked for a paragraph after the pictures of my pack. WWE Undisputed guarantees a hit in every pack with 8 of the 10 from each box being an autograph.
Thankfully, I didn’t hit a non autograph. The autograph is cut off but I hit a Samoa Joe autograph. Honestly I am ecstatic. I don’t care if he never gets called up the main roster, he is a great wrestler who has main evented in every promotion he touched. I also hit a numbered Big Boss Man card.
Now for the second thing I like about PackRip.com. This is minor but I like how you can go back to the packs and see what was in each pack you bought. It’s a minor perk but one that you will never get in real life unless you keep the cards loosely in an opened pack.
I do have a confession. The real reason why it took so long to post is because I am dying the review their trade feature. My trade name is ‘pandanwh.’ I will consider any offer.
