Random Review: 6 month old WalMart basketball repack
November 13, 2017 § Leave a comment
Today is another example of my tendency to not open boxes that I buy right away – for the record if I got any review boxes from companies I would open those right away, hint, hint as I know some of you read. I probably had an appetite for cards as mail didn’t come this weekend because of Veterans Day. I don’t remember how much this product was. It was probably $19.99 but it could have been $14.99. I hope it was cheaper because despite offering hobby packs, it was awful as you will see.
I bought this expecting cheap Prestige packs that would make me happy. I certainly wasn’t expecting 5 of the same packs; a flagship product with hits hard to come by.
I did beat the odds and got a Beckett rookie card that came 1 in 4 boxes.
I didn’t pull anything good. The Prizm was all base cards with a Shabazz Muhammad rookie card. Other than that, the flagship packs offered some inserts that are selling for cheaper than base cards.
I am pretty convinced that whoever made this product searched the packs to keep the hits for themselves. I highly doubt that I would pull 3 cards of the same player in the packs otherwise.
The red, white, and blue parallel was decent at least. I didn’t open it but it has Bradley Beal, Chris Paul, and Jason Kidd cards in it.
