A lot of you still are unaware of the beauty and legacy that is Just Minors. Before the current prospect rush that we are seeing, Just Minors was blazing the trail. Unfortunately it is not always good to be early to the party as they did not last, even though they would dominate the industry now. For under $10, I picked up a pack to show the beauty of one of my favorite all time brands; and this is coming from someone who isn’t much of a prospect collector other than trying to buy low on future superstars.
Nobody that lasted but still a fun rip. 2007 didn’t have a lot of star power to offer to begin with.

On Thursday, I stopped into Rite Aid to check if they had Easter candy. As some card collectors can relate too, I ending up spending more on cards than candy even though cards weren’t on my radar going in. For what it’s worth, that is not saying much because I bought a $5 product. It would have never happened if I didn’t embrace the fact that I had time. As I have been doing, I posted on Twitter a few days before.
While I didn’t hit a blatant coach card in this, I did get a few coaches from their playing days.
I got super lucky with this. I know that, you know that, the universe knows that. It is still Fairfield so I wouldn’t go out running to get one of these products. If you are in a Rite Aid or other related store, it wouldn’t hurt to check out. I have seen these with Mike Trout on top.

I have seen a lot of junk come of these boxes. Having felt the toploader difference, I opened it in this order and was worried that I hit a dud. I am not a fan of the ‘Super Break Certified’ autographs. I wish that they had a sticker that isn’t bland. This product is for sale for $25 on Blowout. While I am happy with my box, I do not recommend it.

Christ Thompson autograph
Tavares King autograph, Rodney Smith numbered to 199.
I bought this box $29.99. I could only find it on Amazon for more than that but not much more. Regardless of the names, every card in these boxes are quality. The base are thick. Opening the product, you can feel how premium it is. If only the rookie class turned out better. Interestingly, despite the named I pulled being nothing special, every player who autographed my cards played in the 2017 season.

This week’s Random Review is a 1 card blaster box of 2014 Leaf Cut Signature Edition. About 5 to 7 years ago, I used to live by a WalMart that would stock the cut signature boxes, or should I say, consistently had a stock of them. I loved them, for a little more than a blaster box, I got a premium hit regardless of a slabbed autograph. That is something that a small time collector never gets. I got this in December from Blowout $19.12. The chance for an Ozzy Osbourne autograph lured me in.
Not a premium autograph because his autographs surprisingly are cheap, but one that I am ecstatic to get nonetheless. Talk about undervalued. A Best Picture and Best Director winner.

Now this is an interesting purchase. I bought a few things from Blowout Cards in December and did not purposely buy this. When I was looking in November, probably at the Black Friday deals, I added this pack to my cart but did not purchase it. Come December, it was still in my cart because I did not clear my browser history. When I made said purchase, all I looked at was if the total was off. Blowout Cards charges crazy shipping prices so a $3 addition was an easy oversight. I got this for $3.11 I believe, but they are currently on sale for $4.95. Let’s dive in:
Hmmm, a Ben Simmons rookie numbered to 50 and more importantly a C.J. McCollum numbered to 50.
Just kidding, I know what I have. What a great pull from something I paid so little for. Since I broke the USA box and pulled the Kris Bryant autograph, I have sense pulled a Judge rookie valued over $10 and this. Not too bad. I do need to flip this card as my car needs new tires so if anyone is interested, message me on Twitter – no trades.

A 1 autographed card per box product and only that card. I bought this from Blowout Cards in December for a shade over $5. Right now you can find these boxes in the $8 to $16 price range.
It was interesting to see Michael Floyd and Trent Richardson cards on the box as selling points.
A Courtney Upshaw autograph. He was an early 2nd round pick so this would have been a decent card at the time. It’s still not a bad card in my book, even with 1 currently being on sale for a buck.
If you come across a box under $10, it is worth a shot. Andrew Luck, Kirk Cousins, Case Keenum, and Nick Foles are in this set. Press Pass is also not a bad card company and I wonder how much of the value from the card is depressed because of the Press Pass name on it.
