Mail Day – Feb. 27th 2017

Over the last month or so I started breaking with a group of collectors that I met through twitter. Mr. Fox at Fox’s Fire Card (@brownsfan83) runs them whenever he gets enough people to buy them out. It’s a nice small group and I like that I can often get the Bills in any “pick your team” break. Today I got my first package from the breaks and while I didn’t get anything great on the Buffalo Bills end I did get some nice cards.

Here is the breakdown of the teams and products I bought
2015 Donrus Football – 5 Box Break (Bills, Panthers, Giants)
2016 Limited (Bills, Panthers)
2016 Crown Royale (Bills, Panthers, Lions, Giants)

And here are some of the highlights…

2016 Panini Limited – Rookie Autographs – Jeremy Cash 01/99

2015 Panini Crown Royale – #31 Victor Cruz

2015 Panini Crown Royale – Pink Ribbons Die-Cuts – Green #PR12 Cam Newton

2015 Panini Crown Royale – #118 Quandre Diggs

2015 Panini Donruss – Stat Line Receptions #276 Gridiron Kings – Odell Beckham Jr. 079/143

2015 Panini Donruss – Press Proof Purple #149 – Luke Kuechly 112/199

2015 Panini Donruss – Passing the Torch Memorabilia #PTM-CAR

2015 Panini Donruss – Threads #DT-AW Andre Williams

There also was a pack of 2015-16 Panini NBA Hoops included in my package and some how I pulled this sweet card!

2015-16 Panini NBA Hoops – Hot Signatures #HS-TB Tarik Black

Until next time!

Jim Kelly – 2015 Panini Spectra Football

A couple of weeks ago I made a bit of an impulse purchase on eBay.  It was a lot of eight Jim Kelly cards from the 2015 Panini Spectra Football set.  This purchase led to a new trading card quest.  It’s not going to be easy and it might not even be possible to find, but I’m looking to complete the rainbow of Jim Kelly variations.  Here are the cards I purchased.

Base 19/99
  

Neon Blue 04/49
  

Neon Blue Die-Cut 02/35
  

Neon Green 18/25
  

Neon Green Die-Cut 04/15
  

Neon Pink 07/10
  

Neon Pink Die-Cut 4/5
  

Neon Orange 3/3
  

So I’m still looking for the Neon Orange Die-Cut 1 of 1 and the Gold 1 of 1. These are obviously the hardest ones to find, and the most expensive but if anyone out there has one, please let me know.  I’m willing to trade and/or buy. Either way these cards are a great addition to the person collection. Let’s Go Buffalo!

UPDATE: 2016 Blowout NFL Season PLAYER Promo

This is a bittersweet, and very delayed, post but I felt like I needed to get it out there before Christmas.  During Week 14 of the NFL season when the Bills were defeated and basically knocked out of the playoffs, a certain Pittsburgh running back went over the 200 yard mark.  The Bills are technically still mathematically alive for the playoffs.   This loss probably bounced Buffalo from the first (and Rex Ryan promised) playoff berth since 1999.  It was a very disappointing outcome.  But, I did get 100 dollars for Le’Veon Bell’s effort from Blowout Cards!  Here are all the details from my earlier post about the contest.

I got that going for me, which is nice!  Not sure what I should buy with my new found money but I’m pretty pumped about having an extra $100 to buy a new hobby box or two!

I’ve got a busy couple of weeks coming up so this may be my last post of 2016.  Hope you have a Merry Christmas filled with family and fun.  And maybe unwrapping a few hits too!  And to get my New Year’s Resolutions off to a good start, here’s the first for me to work on, more creative and frequent posts for OneMorePack.com.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

2013 Rookie and Stars Longevity – Box 3

Onto the third Box from www.DACardworld.com.  Sill having a pretty good time opening these boxes but I’m getting increasingly frustrated by the card distribution. More duplicates and not very close to getting a complete base set.

Again here are the details:

Look for Four Autographs or Memorabilia Cards per Box, including at least One Autograph!
Find Freshman Orientation and Dress for Success Rookie Material Cards!
Look for Exclusive Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald Parallels as well as Material, Signature, and Signature Material Versions!
Featuring a 240-card Base Set, consisting of 100 Longevity Commons, 100 Longevity Rookies, and 40 Rookie Materials Longevity Ruby!

Also Look for Randomly inserted cards:
– Longevity Commons/Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald (100 cards)
– Longevity Rookies/Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald (100 cards)
– Longevity Rookies Ruby Signatures/Sapphire Signatures/Emerald Signatures (100 cards)
– Rookie Materials Longevity Ruby/Signatures (40 cards)
– Material Longevity Ruby Signatures/Sapphire Signatures/Emerald Signatures (20 cards)
– Rookie Materials Longevity Sapphire/Signatures (40 cards)
– Rookie Materials Longevity Emerald/Signatures (40 cards)
– Freshman Orientation Materials (40 cards)
– Dress for Success Materials (40 cards)
– CrossTraining Materials (20 cards)
10 Packs per Box, 5 Cards per Pack

Here are the hits

2013 Panini Rookies & Stars Longevity Ruby #9 Torrey Smith
   

2013 Panini Rookies & Stars Longevity Ruby #51 Jamaal Charles
   

2013 Panini Rookies & Stars Longevity Ruby #112 Chris Harper
   

2013 Panini Rookies & Stars Longevity Ruby #154 Knile Davis
   

2013 Panini Rookies & Stars Cross Training Materials #19 Tyler Eifert
   

2013 Panini Rookies & Stars Dress for Success #25 Matt Barkley
   

2013 Panini Rookies & Stars Longevity Ruby #218 Knile Davis 080/299
   

2013 Panini Rookies & Stars Longevity Rookie Signatures Ruby [Autographed] #180 Ryan Swope 118/199
   

Finally got the Autograph and while it’s a numbered parallel it’s not a big hit.  Ryan Swope retired from football due to concussions before he ever got to prove his talent.  Also no Buffalo Bills this time, not even one of a current player in a different team uniform.

More duplicate base cards and not too close to completing the base set or the rookie portion of the cards.  After 3 boxes I’ve got approximately 65 out of 100 base cards and 35 out of 100 rookie cards.  I’ve got 5 boxes and I didn’t keep the stats for each box so I’ll give the set stats once I’m finished with first 5 posts.

Coming soon….Box 4 and Box 5.

Again here are the details:

Look for Four Autographs or Memorabilia Cards per Box, including at least One Autograph!
Find Freshman Orientation and Dress for Success Rookie Material Cards!
Look for Exclusive Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald Parallels as well as Material, Signature, and Signature Material Versions!

2013 Panini Rookies & Stars Longevity Sapphire #87 Percy Harvin 22/25
sapphire-percy-harvin   sapphire-percy-harvin-b

9 hits in this box 4 jersey cards, one numbered. Four ruby parallels.  And one Sapphire parallel numbered to 25.  Another bonus is that I got two more hits of Buffalo Bills.  Percy Harvin although not in Bills uniform he has resigned with the team. And Robert Woods Rookie Material numbered to 299.  Let’s Go Buffalo!

This second box also did not come with the promised autograph, but wasn’t short on the four hits. And actually had a bonus hit with the Sapphire parallel.  The box did not have a duplicates in it, but I’m already starting to pile up the duplicate base cards.  I could be very unlucky but I find it hard to believe that two boxes would have the same Cross Training Materials Quinton Patton card in them.

Until next time…
