Random Review: PackRip.com Black Friday, Black Gold

I meant to get this up earlier but my best friend from college is in town and my life has been non stop. PackRip.com celebrated Black Friday. One of their deals was offering 2015-16 Black Gold basketball for $50. Black Friday is the one time of the year where I think my regret test kills me. Basically I ask myself: ‘will I regret passing up on this if I want it tomorrow and it’s not there?’ This deal passed my regret test. My main motivation was that I will probably never ever get to open any Black Gold product so I had too. It was also important to me to buy something from PackRip this year because they have treated this site so great, and just like how I love shopping at my favorite card shop because they are awesome people, I love shopping at online stores who treat the community great. So here are my 2 hits from the box:

I am open to trades on PackRip for the Horford. Username: AngryCardCollector. I have the Davis available for trade as well but it is probably worth more to me than you can buy it on the secondary market. By the way points to PackRip for making the trade link for people, sharable. You can find mine here: https://www.packrip.com/cards-for-trade/44

Kelly Olynyk, Gary Payton, Isaiah Canaan, John Paxson, Nikola Pekovic, Kendall Marshall

The game used jerseys were nothing whatsoever to complain about. I still haven’t hit a multi layered patch yet. Interestingly, the two NBA Materials jerseys were from the same box.

The Gary Payton autograph has been the case hit so far. Just like the NBA Materials jerseys, the Distinctive Ink autographs came in the same box. Isaiah Canaan’s signature looks like a boob to me.

While on the surface the Irving jersey and Pekovic autograph may not seem so terrible, they are a dime a dozen with this product. You can find them with little effort.
