SCU BREAKS: 2010 Topps Football Jumbo

Stopped by Sports Cards Plus here in San Antonio to pick up my pre-ordered box, and I must say that I got pretty lucky with the results of my break. Not the GREATEST players, but still pretty nice to pull a 1/1 or 1/4 depending on how you look at it.

Here are the results…
Autos:
Mike Kafka RPA Auto 6/90
Dexter McCluster
James Davis
Other Hits:
Frank Gore 1/1 Magenta Printing Plate
CJ Spiller Jumbo Jersey 1/20
Havent checked for set completion, but I will.




3 Boxes of Donruss Elite – Presented By Blowout Cards.com

I wanted to try out a few boxes of Elite because it is the first pro uniform product of the year for the rookies, and I am very glad that I did. I am always a sucker for the first product like this, but usually end up always regret it, not this time! I pulled two autos of GREAT players, and one low numbered auto of an okay player. I also pulled some good rookies and a Patch. Its not like I pulled a passing the torch dual auto or anything, but it could have been A LOT worse. Thanks to Chris and Pat at BlowoutCards.com for the great prices on these boxes. If you havent started buying all your boxes from them, you need to start now.

As you can see, if I were a Patriots fan, this would have been the best break I could have had.

SCU Breaks: SP Authentic 5 Box Break Presented By Blowout Cards.com



Well, we may have started off VERY slow with a bunch of junk, but we sure ended with a bang. Gotta love it. I will apologize ahead of time for the lack of quality for the video, hopefully I can get a new camera soon.
Thanks again to Chris and Pat over at Blowout Cards, they made this a quick and easy break. Please check out their awesome site to find the best prices on wax for the entire web. Tell them I sent you for a nice pat on the back.
Anyways, here are scans of a few of the big hits, and as you will notice there are only four auto patches. We did get shorted a hit in one of our boxes, so I will be contacting UD customer service on our behalf. Whatever they send us will go to the person who owns the team. I am kind of pissed that missing hits are still a problem this year, but hopefully we can get it taken care of very quickly. For those of you who have questions, please let me know, again I am very sorry.

Oh, I forgot this one on the last pack of the last freaking box!

Boom. Cards will be going out later this week, be sure to let me know (if you havent already) if I need to send you more than just the rare base, rookies, and other stuff. If you decide to leave the base, they will go to the kids at a local shop I visit, I dont collect them or keep them. Thanks again for participating!
NOTE: This is the second year in a row we have pulled the big rookie out of a box. Last year we pulled Chris Johnson out of Exquisite, Matt Ryan out of Premiere, and a few other amazing cards. Talk about LUCK!

Great Day At The Local Shop!

Its very rare that I pull anything when buying loose packs. Its rarer that I pull anything to even recoup half the value of what I buy. Today was not one of those days.

I was running some errands and I stopped in at the Baseball Card Co. over here in Northridge, CA to see what I could find. They had their normal great selection of packs, so I decided to try some Bowman Chrome, after all the Topps Chrome I had busted. Luckily for me I did, because in the six packs I purchased, I pulled these two cards:
Yes, this is the first red refractor I have ever pulled, and the White was just a bonus. The Massaquoi is numbered 2/5 and is up for sale as we speak. In addition to these cards, I also pulled a base Stafford RC and a base Freeman RC, so these six packs were probably the best ever for me.
Let me know if you are interested in either, I will consider any reasonable offer.
