Random Review: 2017 Panini Day Pack

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. 20180314_111114.jpg

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.

 

Random Review: 6 month old WalMart basketball repack

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.
