Well, I broke down and bought some...

...2009/10 ITG Between The Pipes that is.

I have been in awe over the product since it's release a couple weeks ago. The quality of card design, the selection, variety and "hits" have made this one of the most anticipated sets I've probably ever seen.

I went to the local card store today with the hopes that they still had a box left. Once the current batch runs out, I'm betting the price per box will go up a bit (as supply and demand dictates).

Luckily, there were a couple boxes left. I bought one and opened it up in the store. I was really impressed with the break. So much so, I bought the second box (having never done that before). Let's just say the second box was better than the first.

It's a good thing they didn't have more....I probably would have bit.

That said, I did splurge on a box of 08/09 Upper Deck Masterpieces (another release that has really impressed me of late). To say the best was saved for last would be an understatement. I pulled some amazing cards and am looking forward to sharing them over the next week.

Stay tuned.


  1. I went to New World Books & Comics at the Heritage Flea Market (Heritage & Blackfoot in the SE).

    It's the closet shop to me (and I've always enjoyed their info on the hobby).

  2. cool. never been there, i'll have to check it out.

  3. It's a smaller store, not too much in terms of singles. I've gone in basically for boxes, supplies and just for the fact that it's a card store that is close by to my place.

    I like just going in and chatting it up for a while.
