Last week I participated in a little get together (via Blog TV) for Hobby Insider's new site launch. While there were a few hiccups in the festivities (as in not enough bandwidth or something like that), the switch was flipped and a new main site page was launched.
See the banner at the top? Thank you very much. I'm hoping to do a couple or so every week to keep the content fresh.
I'm excited any time there is a step forward in what the hobby can offer to me and I hope this site will bring just that. Time will tell, but you don't make progress without a little bit of work towards it.
But I digress. This night was to celebrate, have some fun, and (unexpectedly) open some boxes.
I participated in some low-end, free box break team-style draft giveaways.
Free is good.
While it's not in pack form, I think knowing there is a complete set in hand will be fun...as will looking at (hopefully) all the cool action shots.
That's right. A box of 2011 Topps Chrome Football was cracked. Now apparently there are cards in this product upwards of $400.
I did not get those.
The base cards are shiny and show off a nice, clean design. I miss when Topps had an NHL license.
That was fun now wasn't it. And by the way - did I mention it was free?
And I got the Flames as my team - double the fun.
Matt Pelech - the fun is overflowing.
A lot of these Finnish parallels were coming out of these packs. That started leading a few people watching to ask what was up.
Overall, it was a hoot to pick up some freebies, but more importantly it was a blast to participate in something like this. Chilling in the comforts of my own home chatting cards with about 100 others from all over the country.
PLAYOFFS!!1 (1954-style) and sorta Elvis.
