Pickups: Thanks again Deb

Meant to post this a few days ago but I have been fortunate enough to be busy this week. Two job interview, a meeting at an employment office, as well as Deacons duties. I celebrated my busy week by opening two boxes of cards. I opened my 2 Prestige 2013/14 boxes. I still have my GoGTS Christmas box sitting on my desk.
So lets take a look at the boxes that were given to me by someone amazing, This is what’s great about the hobby: Thanks Deb

4 hits per box. 2 autos and 2 jerseys

Box 1:

The way that it worked out, is that what is seemingly the worst hit of the box is actually the best hit in my mind. I needed the Al Jefferson jersey card.
Other hits were Tyson Chandler & Isaiah Canan autographs. While I have the Chandler auto, I am so versed in Prestige boxes that I know that there is only 2 or 3 Distinctive Ink per case. That card was the only numbered one as it is limited to 50. Otto Porter rookie jersey is the last hit.
This box also yielded 2 silver Bonus Shots parallels.
Not a bad box one bit considering the product. For what the product is, this box is probably above average.

Box 2

Despite beating the odds and getting 5 hits, this box was nothing special. It was as if Panini knew that fact and threw in an extra autograph to make up for it. Corey Brewer, Epke Udoh, and Jan Vessely autographs; non of which were numbered, another atrocity. Channing Frye and Otto Porter jerseys round out the box. Yes, I pulled 2 Otto Porter jerseys.

I still love this product. I am getting close to finishing off my True Colors jersey set from it. If I account for what it is in my COMC account, and not my custody I finished off the Prestigious Premieres auto set.  I can’t wait to take a picture with all of those cards together. My sole focus and nothing else has been this set. Collect what you love. It will be priceless to you.

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.
