The Loot Locker – May 2017

It’s that time again.  My Loot Locker came about 2 weeks ago, but I’m just getting to post about now.   Usually I have some pretty good luck with Loot Lockers, but this was not one of my best.  Here is the breakdown. Three Hobby Packs 2015 Topps Platinum 2016 Donruss Optic Football 2017 Score Football Noting special to report from the Topps Platinum.  I’ve already built the base set in 2015 Topps Platinum and am just working on the Golds…I got an Eddie Lacy which I already had. Donruss Optic wasn’t much better, none of the cards helped with that base set and the “hit” was the following card. 2016 Donruss Optic Football #174 Jeff Driskel 228/299 Finally, I opened the 2017 Score Football pack. I’ve always liked Score, maybe because it’s cheaper and has more base cards to try and collect.  But this year’s version looks quite nice.  The photos used are great and the design is clean.  Here are a few that I pulled. 2017 Score Football #151 Trevor Siemian Gold 03/50 Here are some of the other cards in the pack. 2017 Score Football #106 Sammie Coates Scorecard 2017 Score Football #105 LeSean McCoy 2017 Score Football […]

Webb’s Cards and Collectibles – Knoxville Tennessee

VIBE (3 out of 5) Webb’s Cards and Collectibles is a small store but very organized. It felt a little cramped as card boxes were packed to the ceiling. Each set was organized on the shelves by year, each card was in number order. If you needed a card to complete your collection this is the place to come. Especially if you need baseball from the past 40-50 years. I chatted with the owner, Bill, while his grand kids were running around the store. This was pretty cool to see two little boys playing around the store. Both boys were well behaved and energetic and put a smile on my face. INVENTORY (3 out of 5) I’m a football guy and I like to be able to buy packs and boxes not just singles. I would have given a higher score here had there been any wax boxes at all. There were some factory sets, a couple of random hobby boxes, but nothing 2017. There was an entire display case full of Peyton Manning, since it was in Knoxville, Tennessee. Most of the single cards in cases were pretty recent (last 4 years) but there were a few older cards […]
