2 Box Break of 2012-13 Panini Preferred Basketball

April 24th, 2013

Here are 2 boxes of the new 2012-13 Panini Preferred Basketball.  First box was very nice.  Second was so-so.  I am not completely crazy about the packaging as the booklet card is just sitting in the pack and you can see it right away.  You can’t tell who is on the booklet, but you can [...]

NFL Mock Draft by Matt Almond

April 23rd, 2013

2013 NFL MOCK DRAFT As a lifelong NFL fan I always tried to imagine what it would be like to be a GM on draft day. The excitement, the anxiety of if your player will fall to you would be the ultimate rush. I wanted to put a mock together of my idea of the [...]

April 17th, 2013

So I saw 4 boxes of the new 2012 Panini Prizm Baseball opened today.  My first reaction was that the cards looked nice, but man would they be awesome with logos.  Panini did a nice job with the inserts.  The USA cards are sharp as are most of the other inserts.  My biggest complaint is [...]

Guest blog post from Sam Breniman

April 13th, 2013

When I go opening boxes, I’m always looking for the big hit. The card that makes me stop and go, “wow”. I enjoy opening boxes regardless, but really, I imagine that many other people who break boxes are looking for the same thing! It’s the “big hit” factor that makes me wonder why people so [...]
