NBA Finals Preview

June 5th, 2014

The NBA Finals start tonight in San Antonio and I can’t wait. It should be a great series with a rematch from last year. The Spurs are determined to get revenge and the Heat are trying to cement their place in history. Both teams, obviously, have a lot to play for in the series. Everyone [...]

-The Spurs took care of business last night.  We’re getting a rematch of last year’s NBA Finals.  The teams are pretty similar to last year.  There are a few new pieces and a few guys who play more/less than last year.  However, it should be very similar in terms of the match-up.  My early take [...]

-So the Pacers/Heat game last night was entertaining.  The Pacers struggled big time in the first half.  LeBron was out much of the half with foul trouble, yet the Heat were still able to maintain a solid lead.  Honestly, I thought the Pacers were finished.  I didn’t think they had the mental make-up to come [...]

-I meant to write something about this yesterday, but ran out of time.  I can’t believe the Cavs won the Draft Lottery AGAIN!!!  Crazy.  One thing this has certainly done is bring back the question of whether LeBron will go back to Cleveland now.  I just read a few things on ESPN about it and [...]

2 Box Break of 2013-14 Panini Crusade BK

May 20th, 2014

Panini also recently busted 2 boxes of the 2013-14 Panini Crusade BK.  I’m not as excited about this one as I am about Prizm BB.  I do like the cheaper box price.  However, I’m not sure how there is more value.  Last year there were 6 hits with 3 Autos and 3 Memorabilia.  This year [...]

2 Boxes of Panini Prizm BB

May 20th, 2014

Panini recently opened 2 boxes of the 2014 Panini Prizm Baseball.  I would say the stuff looked really nice, given the price.  It’s much cheaper than it has been in the past, but you still get 2 autographs.  A lot of the autographs are on card and they are finally putting a lot of the [...]

-I’m going to dedicate a paragraph to each of the Conference Finals today.  I’ll start out West where the Spurs took care of business.  It was obvious that the Thunder are going to sorely miss Serge Ibaka.  That was a huge blow.  Now they are faced with playing guys like Kendrick Perkins and Nick Collison.  [...]

13-14 Panini Crusade BK Images

May 15th, 2014

Panini posted a blog about the upcoming 2013-14 Panini Crusade BK.  They showed a bunch of card images.  You can see the entire blog HERE. I must say that this still feels like two different products in one to me.  The actually Crusade cards look awesome and feel like a really cool set.  However, all [...]

-Meant to post something yesterday about the NBA Playoffs, but got caught up with a project.  The second round hasn’t been nearly as entertaining as the first round was.  3 of the series are 3-1.  Plus the team that has 3 wins in each of those series also has 2 home games left.  I saw [...]

2014 Prizm BB Images

May 13th, 2014

Panini posted a blog yesterday showing images of the upcoming 2014 Panini Prizm Baseball.  The cards all look fairly nice.  I am still not a fan of the no logo uniforms.  Panini does a decent job on most of them, but sometimes the card looks like the player has a completely different uniform on.  They [...]
