Lets move on to happier times. I usually have to order hockey blasters online but when I saw this in my WalMart, I grabbed it and stuck it on a credit card, afraid that I would miss my chance to bust a product that I covet so much. Parkhurst is one of my all time favorite sets. I put together insert sets from this last year.
Kudos to Upper Deck for getting traded players in their right jersey. Something that Panini didn’t do in Hoops which frustrated me.
One of the few products that is usually left at WalMart after being picked over is the Hoops holiday boxes. I don’t understand as this is probably my favorite product since I discovered it.
A few weeks ago, I found Prizm in the wild. Yes, I grabbed them all but that was to give to my local hobby shop because they can’t get them from their distributor. As I was leaving, someone else came to the card aisle looking for it. I gave him a box.
As someone who enjoys the Grizzlies, I was pleasantly surprised to see Ja Morant. I am curious why it doesn’t say that it is a rookie card though.
Ever since I discovered these last year, I can’t get enough of them. They are $20 when you can find them.
I didn’t hit the top 2 rookies in the class which disappointed me.
I am ashamed to admit that I went Prizm hunting this week. I came away empty handed in that venture but came across wave 2 of these.
My birthday was on Wednesday and I was lucky enough to get a hobby box for it. One of my favorite products of the year is Chronicles and I was lucky enough to get a box that.
I was puzzled to find a Donruss card in here. Does anyone know the reasoning? As someone who opened more Donruss baseball this year than any product, I think that I might be ticked off unless this is an updated rookie set.
So my first 3 hits probably didn’t even amount to the value of a hobby pack. I opened the above hits first and by that point, I had given up on the box until:
This is a dream card for me. Tom Glavine is one of my all time favorite players in any sport. He is one of the greatest left handed pitchers of all time and was drafted as a hockey player, for my Kings. The Braves are one of my least favorite teams; I loathe them as much as a rational person hates the New England Patriots. Despite this, Glavine somehow found a way into my heart.
I haven’t been buying much retail unless it is an impulse buy or something that I really want. These would fall under the impulse category.
Both pretty underwhelming but we are talking about one off retail fat packs. I was more curious about Unparalleled. Hockey is in my blood and was an impulse buy. It feels like MVP is more of a set builders product. I am past the point where I want cards just to have cards. If anything, these will be given to a kid for Halloween.
Player of the Day is back and
better than ever; well worth trying if that is your cup of tea. I figured why not and went for it. I am glad I did as the Minshew rookie card is awesome. The other pack is fitting that I got it from an SoCal sports card shop with Rivers and Gurley. I heard that their were autographs and memorabilia cards in here but I have yet to see any. There are definitely decoy cards.
Guess what? I have a pack to give away of this. RT the Twitter link below. Open to everyone in the USA; and if you are outside and willing to pay shipping then enter as well.
