Random Review: 2018-19 NBA Hoops Holiday Edition Christmas Edition

I got retail packs for Christmas but picked up this second Hoops blaster a few weeks ago. I opened it today figuring that I wouldn’t want to open it after Christmas. For a more detailed review on this product, check out my last review of it: Random Review: 2018-19 NBA Hoops Holiday Edition

This was a more typical box. I liked that the jersey card had a winter theme on it, something that my hit last time did not.

The rookies from this pack were pretty bland. As of right now, I didn’t pull any big rookies but the rookie class is fluid so who knows what I might come back to in a year or two.

The jersey card is a typical hit in these boxes. This box was very typical overall and not flashy; just like the Hoops brand. Nothing flashy but a healthy amount of base and rookies. I might keep my eye out and grab one or two of these if they hit the clearance rack. The winter theme is a nice change of pace for a product that doesn’t offer much.

A non winter themed card slipped by; the Maurice Harkless card. For comparison check out the card next to it to see how the base card should look with the winter theme.

Random Review: Totally Certified Basketball, Christmas Present

It’s New Years Eve and I just now opened one of the two boxes that I got for Christmas. As I stated, I have pretty good will power and waited until I had a hunger to open a box.
I opened my Panini Totally Certified 2013/2014 box. It had 6 packs with a hit in each pack. The price point wasn’t too bad as I bought the box for $50 from Valley Sports Cards – no they don’t sponsor the site, I just love namedropping them when I can because of how awesome they are. This is actually my second foray with Totally Certified as the very first Random Review that I ever did was the football version of the same year – found here. I was underwhelmed with that box but I chalked it up to a poor rookie class; plus at my price range, I don’t really have many options when I go into the store. I am a basketball collector anyway so I didn’t mind taking a chance.
