2013 Rookies and Stars Longevity – Box 1

As I’ve stated before I buy a lot of my cards from www.dacardworld.com. Not only are they a great Buffalo company but they also have some of the best prices on the internet. I’ve done breaks with them but I mostly buy boxes when they go on sale or clearance. So when I saw these cards go on sale for under 20 bucks a box I bought a bunch. 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!

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.)

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, […]

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! (2 Rookie Numbered On-Card Autographs or Rookie Autograph Jumbo Patch Card, 1 Numbered Rookie Jumbo Patch or Relic Card) PLUS – 2 Numbered Parallel Cards – 2 Striking Veteran Base Cards Without further ado… Veteran Base Cards 2011 Topps Inception #43 Hines Ward 2011 Topps Inception #85 Michael Turner Numbered Parallel Cards 2011 Topps Inception #24 Knowshon Moreno (Grey) 043/106 2011 […]

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!

Grand Slam Collectibles – Murfreesboro, TN

And as my travel season begins, this becomes the 3rd brick and mortar card shop I’ve actually visited since starting to write about them.  This one in Murfreesboro, TN was open for just one week when I walked through the door.  It was well laid out but Nathan, the owner, was still building his inventory.  He had a great set up of glass displays with a large football section.   Good for me!  Nothing Jim Kelly, bad for me. After I searched through card boxes labeled $2 and the one labeled $1.50 and the one labeled $1, I found a few Bills cards to add to my personal collection.  I then chatted with the owner, Nathan.  We talked about why he opened the place and what he hoped to do.  He told me he was selling a lot on Ebay but also had really good foot traffic during the first week.  He told me he thought the walk-ins would continue since there isn’t many places in middle Tennessee.  His main business is buying and selling single cards.  We chatted about the trading card industry and a little bit of football for almost 30 minutes before I paid $17 for some Bills […]

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 […]
