Box Break Preview

Looking at the Database listings for 2018 Topps Update, I decided that for at least a few of them, the inserts actually had half a decent idea behind them, even though there are stupid parallels and other inserts that are pointless.  More on that in another post.  So rather than just trading for a base set like I had for the first two series, I went ahead and purchased a box.  And then, of course, you can't buy just one, so I added a couple friends.  I ordered from Charm City Cards on Friday afternoon, and they showed up the next day.  CCC is in Baltimore, which is only an hour drive from here.

My want list for last year's OPC hockey is still massive, even for just the base set, so I figured it was a good buy and won't stick me with too many unmovable dupes.

The Score football is from 2014.  I actually still need ten base cards there too.  It's a huge master set, with ten insert sets that aren't hits, half of which also come in four different color versions.  I've selected one color scheme on those, so the others are trade bait.  Let's hope I can knock off at least a few of what I'm missing.  Nice part is, that since these came out, they show up in quarter and dime boxes quite often - even the rookies.  This box was only $25!

Oh yeah, this is not an invitation to sign up for break slots.  The extras will be available for trade, but that's it.  As I break each box, I'll take pics and post up what I get.  Hopefully I don't get an identical box to those I opened before.  Stay tuned!

  1. I think I'm more excited to see what you pull out of the O-Pee-Chee box than the Update. That's a great set.
