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.

 

Pickups: Freecycle Hockey Cards

The other day, I saw a post on a Freecycle Facebook where someone was giving away hockey cards. By some miracle, I was the first to chime in and the next day, they were in my possession. If you are unfamiliar with Freecycle, I suggest checking them out. The whole point of Freecycle groups is to keep items that may be useful to others out of the landfill; it is not a site where people can get a free item and then turn around and sell it. Actually my local group filters that out pretty good because those people are so obvious as they say that they are interested in every item posted. If you are one of those people who don’t know what to do with your base cards, a Freecycle group would be a good way to find a better home for them.

For those of you that follow me on Twitter, I posted the finds on there. If you don’t follow, look for a post tomorrow giving you a reason to. Here is the recap of the Freecycle cards, some other sports sneaked in:

Random Review: 4th & Goal Blaster Box

It finally happened. A month after celebrating my college graduation, I finally opened 2 of the 5 boxes of cards that I got.
A family member picked up 2 boxes of a repack product from WalMart for me. The product is called ‘4th & Goal.’ It contains 8 football packs, with hobby packs being randomly inserted. The cost for the box is between $10 to $15 a box.

The person buying these boxes misread the box and thought that they were giving me a box with hobby packs. Unfortunately I didn’t hit anything. I didn’t much of anything. So lets move on to the junk inside.

This is what’s great about the hobby: Legends23 Case Breakers

The boom of social media has brought many great opportunities. For as many side effects that social media has, their is so much good that is hard to ignore. People are giving to others in amazing ways. In the past 10 days, I have seen an amazing number (a good half dozen, and not by major companies) of hobby boxes being given away. Last weekend, I was on the receiving end of yet another of one of these great givers.

The case breakers at Legends 23 are the amazing people behind this giveaway. I was lucky enough to walk away with a Hi Tek baseball box. Check them out at http://www.legend23cb.com/; they actually have a video of the giveaway on their site as well as great breaks.
