The Loot Locker – October Edition

Over the weekend I got my October Loot Locker.  I always have a hard time not ripping them open as soon as I get the box, just like when I was a little kid but I had a bunch of other stuff to go through and some real life to take advantage of.  Contenders was replaced by a pack of Donruss.  But here we go again, check out what I pulled. Three packs 2016 Donruss Football 2016 Panini Certified 2016 Donruss Elite 2016 Donruss Football 10 cards…8 base, 2 inserts (I had to research the Aqueous test card but there appears to be only 25 of each card.)

The Loot Locker – September Edition

Here we go again….The September Loot Locker came in the mail today and while it’s a little late this month, it was nice to have it arrive on a day I’m off from work. So let’s just dive into this month’s box. As usual it contained some card sleeves and top holders along with the a few pieces of candy. I’m still waiting on one of those bonus boxes. Three packs 2015 Panini Contenders 2016 Panini Certified 2016 Donruss Elite 2015 Panini Contenders Andre Johnson Tavon Austin Travis Benjamin Russell Wilson Charles Woodson      2016 Panini Certified 2016 Panini Certified #19 Sam Bradford 2016 Panini Certified #49 Ben Roethlisberger 2016 Panini Certified #61 Jimmy Graham 2016 Panini Certified #6 Le’Veon Bell Sunday Certified 2016 Panini Certified Mirror Orange #11 Immortals – Edgerrin James 043/225 2016 Donruss Elite 2016 Donruss Elite #6 Carson Palmer 2016 Donruss Elite #23 Cam Newton 2016 Donruss Elite #31 Matt Forte 2016 Donruss Elite #96 Troy Aikman 2016 Donruss Elite Throwback Threads #TT-DC Dallas Clark 44/49 Kind of disappointing getting a base pack for the Contenders but the Elite Dallas Clark 4-color jersey numbered to 49 made up for it. It’s also one of the […]

2011 Panini Contenders Hobby Box

I know it’s been a while, but sometimes life gets in the way of collecting football cards.  I know that is really hard to believe.  But I’m back at it, full speed ahead.  And we are three weeks into the NFL season and I haven’t had one player come close to hitting on the stats needed for the 2016 Blowout Cards Season Long Player Contest.  And to top it off my best chance of winning the end of year award is out for the season, thanks to Adrian Peterson’s unfortunate knee injury.  Now my hopes are on Le’Veon Bell after missing 3 games and Dez Bryant really picking it up.  But I digress. But here is the last of the 3 boxes that I randomly got with the contest.  It’s 2011 Panini Contenders.  Blowout cards no longer has any of these boxes available.  I also couldn’t find any on a few of the other notable websites, so I’m pretty pumped about opening up this box. Box Configuration: 24 packs per box, 5 cards per pack Price: $129.95 (sold out in most places) Content Highlights: Look for (4) Autographs, (1) Parallel, (3) ROY Contenders, (3) Draft Class, (3) Rookie Roll Call, […]

2008 Upper Deck SPx

Here is the second box break from the boxes that came with the Blowout Cards season long player contest.  I went with the 2008 Upper Deck SPx, just because it was something different.  These are pretty cool cards and I’ve always liked Upper Deck Products.   Box Configuration:  10 pack per box. 3 cards per pack. Price: $94.95 (Currently On Sale for $74.95) CONTENT HIGHLIGHTS: – One Autograph or Memorabilia Card in EVERY pack, on average! – Collect Rookie Signature Triple Memorabilia Cards, falling one per box, on average! – Get 7 Memorabilia cards and 3 Autograph Cards in EVERY box, on average! – Three Patch or Triple Memorabilia cards in EVERY box, on average! – Look for 1 of 1 parallel cards featuring highlights and moments from NFL Superstars, falling one per case, on average!

2011 Topps Inception Football

So last week I wrote about the 2016 Blowout NFL Season PLAYER Promo.  None of my players (Steelers RB, Cowboys WR, or Vikings RB) hit any of the weekly milestones so I didn’t win any money towards more cards. But I did open the 2011 Topps Inception. Here is the first box break from the boxes that came with the contest.  I decided to start with the 2011 Topps Inception because it was only 7 cards.  Here is the product page from Blowout Cards. Box Configuration:  1 pack per box. 7 cards per pack. Price: $84.95 Description:  Topps Inception Football is designed to capture the drama, excitement, and buildup surrounding the 2011 Rookie class as it spotlights all the top drafted position players recruited for the NFL Rookie Premiere Photo Shoot. Each 7-Card Encased Pack Includes: – 3 ROOKIE HITS!

The Loot Locker – August Edition

Here we go again….The August Loot Locker came in the mail on Friday and I busted it open to find the following.  I haven’t had a big hit in a while so I was hoping for something nice.  Check out what I pulled. Three packs 2015 Panini Contenders 2016 Panini Certified 2016 Donruss Elite   2015 Panini Contenders 2015 Panini Contenders #195 Rookie Ticket – Dominique Brown Autograph 2016 Donruss Elite 2016 Donruss Elite #53 Matt Ryan 2016 Donruss Elite #55 Sammy Watkins 2016 Donruss Elite #65 Ryan Tannehill 2016 Donruss Elite #70 Latavius Murray   2016 Donruss Elite Etched in Time #ET-MA Marcus Allen 2016 Panini Certified 2016 Panini Certified #21 Carlos Hyde 2016 Panini Certified #26 Rob Gronkowski 2016 Panini Certified #83 Jordan Reed 2016 Panini Certified #26 Ben Roethlisberger Sunday Certified 2016 Panini Certified Mirror Orange #11 Immortals – Michael Strahan 44/225 As always contact me below if you would like to trade for any of these cards.  Until next month, now go open one more pack!

Panini NSCC Silver Packs

As I said in my last post I couldn’t wait to rip open the Silver packs that I got with my Classics 2-team case break from Dave and Adams Card World.  After sorting through all of the Cowboys and 49ers I slowly opened the 4 silver packs.  3 skinny ones and a thick one.  Without further delay… Tom Brady Andrew Luck Dallas Keuchel Roger Clemens Mark McGwire Josh Doctson – Rookie 172/499 James Harden – Representatives 08/25 Noah Vonleh – Panini Patch Autograph Not too bad for a few bonus cards.  Now get out there and open up one more pack.

2016 Panini Classics Case Break

I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now.  I’ve tried other breaks and didn’t really think it was worth the value but when I saw this one and had to take a chance.  Also I like giving Dave and Adam’s Card World my business for a couple of reasons, first they have great customer service and second, they are a Buffalo company.  It was just under 30 dollars for one team for an entire case break.   The break was happening live from the National Sports Collectors Convention in Atlantic City.  Each spot also came with 2 Panini NSCC Silver Packs.  I bought two spots. As they randomly selected the teams, I hoped for Buffalo as one my teams but it wasn’t meant to be.  And with my luck, I got the two teams I’m not a fan of.  But they both had some value.  The Cowboys (with super rookie Ezekiel Elliott) and the 49er with the possibility of pulling a Jerry Rice or Joe Montana autograph.  I tried to Trade the 49ers for the Bills or Panthers but there were no takers.  The live break started at Noon and took about 2 hours to complete the entire case.  They […]

The Loot Locker – July Edition (Again)

So I guess I’ve been calling these by the wrong month.  It appears that the July Loot Locker actually comes the first few days of August.  I’ve been calling them by the month they come in, but I digress. Yesterday the “July” Loot Locker came in the mail.  I broke it open and found the following packs. Three packs 2015 Panini Contenders 2015 Panini Certified 2016 Donruss Elite 2015 Panini Contenders 2015 Panini Contenders #207 Chris Conley Autograph Variation Playoff Ticket Numbered 75/99 2015 Panini Contenders #28 J.J.

Repack – Another Try

So I stopped by the local Target and picked up some cards yesterday.  I saw this $12 repack and thought I’d take another shot and see what I’d pull.  It says 10 packs.  They are all retail packs, but here is the rundown. Two 2013 Prizm Two 2014 Score Two 2016 Leaf One 2014 Prestige One 2014 Hit One 2015 Topps One 2015 Rookies & Stars Let’s start with the 2013 Prizm.  I’ve been collecting this set for a while now.  And just completed the base veteran and rookies.  So why am I showing a couple of random cards, because both of these are base cards I need to help with the second set.  Also pulled one insert.  A Decade of Dominance Troy Aikman. 2013 Panini Prizm Jacoby Jones #3 2013 Panini Prizm Marquess Wilsom #266 2013 Panini Prizm Troy Aikman Decade of Dominance #15 Next here are the highlights of the two packs of 2014 score.  Nothing to write home about an insert and a Scorecard short print plus as an added bonus a Robert Woods and a Derek Carr Rookie Card. 2014 Score Football Robert Woods #25 2014 Score Football Derek Carr #364 2014 Score Football Justin Blackmon #102 […]
