2014 Panini R & S – Opened 6/23/2016

It’s been a few days since I posted. I was visiting family and wanted to spend some time with them instead of sitting at the laptop or opening up a few more packs of cards. But once I got back I couldn’t wait to crack open a few packs. I had four packs of 2014 Panini Rookies and Stars free from a purchase at Dave and Adam’s Card World a while back. Here’s some of the highlights. Some Stars… I wasn’t sure what to expect. But I really liked the look of the cards, until I turned them over. Great front design, not so great back design.  It’s the same photo and it looks like a lot of other Panini sets. And some of the rookies, no big pull, but I always like to see a Johnny Football. Now each pack comes with an insert. As with most Panini sets there are about 20 different insert sets. Here is a nice Champ Bailey Super Bowl Card, DeMarco Murray Pro Bowl, and a Calvin Pryor Draft Class. My Scanning was a little off today, sorry about that. And the final insert was a little bit more than an insert. A really […]

Re-Pack from Walmart $15.98

I did it again.  I thought I’d take another crack at a football repack.  I’ve seen some people have some pretty good luck online but I’m still skeptical.  It was a decent price and came with 4 packs of cards plus one autograph card and one jersey card. Here’s what I pulled. Four Packs 2016 Leaf Draft 2015 Leaf Draft 2014 Rookies and Stars 2013 Topps Football 2016 Leaf Draft – 5 Cards Deforest Buckner Tra Carson Leonard Floyd Robert Nkemdiche Laquon Treadwell (Gold)    2015 Leaf Draft – 5 Cards Javorius Allen Todd Gurley Josh Harper Matt Jones Stefon Diggs (Gold)     Topps Football and the Rookies and Stars Nothing special to report here, but snagged a couple of Buffalo cards. Robert Woods Topps Rookie Cyril Richardson R&S Rookie CJ Spiller R&S My autographed card was the following… 2011 Playoff Contenders #178 Stanley Havili Come on a fullback, but my memorabilia card got quite a bit better. 2006 Donruss Gridiron Gear Rookie Gridiron Gems Jumbo Prime – DeAngelo Williams #205 (Numbered 127 of 150) Again nothing huge but I really like the DeAngelo Williams card and I snagged a couple of nice Buffalo cards.  I’ll try not to […]

The Loot Locker – June Edition

It’s been a few days since I got this month’s edition of the Loot Locker.  No Gurley Rookie Numbered to 99 this time, but not a bad haul.  Here’s what was in the box! Four packs 2015 Panini Contenders (x2) 2015 Topps Platinum 2015 Topps Finest 2015 Panini Contenders 2015 Panini Contenders #132 – Rookie Ticket – Danielle Hunter (Base) 2015 Topps Platinum Matt Forte #19 (Veteran Base) Mark Ingram #37 (Veteran Base) Maxx Williams #140 (Rookie Base) Devin Smith #108 (Rookie X-Fractor) Matthew Stafford #36 (Gold)   The three base cards added to my duplicates (with no Bills) and I already had one of the Devin Smith X-Fractors, but the Stafford Gold card got me closer to completing the Platinum Gold Set. (23 more to go) 2015 Topps Finest Garrett Grayson (RC) #86 Jalen Strong (RC) #92 Tom Brady #140 Jamal Charles #143    2015 Topps Finest QB Cuts Red Refractor #QBC-BP (Numbered 4/50) Not a bad card at all. Thanks Loot Locker, until next month.

2013 Panini Prestige Hobby Box – Opened 6/13/2016

My third box of Panini Prestige.  Again not too bad of a box.  I finally completed the base veteran set.  It was not a great box for the rookie base cards, as I still have 50 to go.  Looks like it’s time to head over to comc.com.  Here are the cards I pulled. Two Autographs Connor Vernon Extra Points Autograph #219 Mike Glennon Draft City Destinations Autograph (Card No. 9) Two Memorabilia Stedman Bailey Prestigious Picks Patch Numbered 158/399 (Card No. 30) DeMarco Murray Gamers Patch (Card No. 25) Three Extra Point Parallels Marshawn Lynch Numbered 41/100 (#179) Eric Reid Numbered 43/50 (#232) Terrance Williams (#291) Four Prestigious Picks Tyler Eifert Prestigious Picks (Card No. 5) Markus Wheaton Prestigious Picks (Card No.  14) Tyler Wilson Prestigious Picks (Card No. 23) Denard Robinson Prestigious Picks (Card No. 33) Two NFL Draft Picks Giovanni Bernard NFL Draft Picks (Card No. 11) Le’Veon Bell NFL Draft Picks (Card No. 18) Two Die Cut Michael Crabtree By the Numbers (Card No. 20) AJ Green Stars of the NFL (Card No. 3) One NFL Draft City Destination Aaron Dobson NFL Draft City Destination (Card No. 17) Four NFL Draft Tickets Mike Glennon NFL Draft Tickets […]

2013 Panini Prestige Hobby Box – Opened 5/26/2016

I actually opened this a while back but I it took me a bit to get it posted. Another pretty good box and getting closer to completing the base veteran set. It was not a great box for the rookie base cards, I only got 2 that I needed for the set. Here are the hits and parallels I pulled. Two Autographs Quinton Patton Extra Points Autograph #275 (Numbered 002/100) Keenan Allen Draft City Destinations Autograph (Card No. 7) Two Memorabilia I love when I see a Buffalo Bill pop up in a pack. It gives me that feeling of being a kid again ripping open pack after pack.
