It was a blast watching guys crack open old, crusty products. Laughing at the silly inserts, crazy jerseys and "remember me?" names. It's hard not to get caught up in the event.
And there was one product that caught my eye early on, but I waited until later in the evening before taking a stab at it.
2003/04 In The Game
Be A Player Memorabilia
24 packs per box
At $20 per box, I thought this would be a really fun break. Long odds on pulling an Emerald parallel /10, but a great chance of hitting some sort of parallel.
And to top it off, how about the Mask III cards.....nice.
It really was a no-brainer and even nicer was the small crowd surrounding to watch the cracking.
Decoy cards that serve a purpose for those who want more than just mice type on them (or worse......blank).
Remember when Dany Heatley was good?
Some decent photos (although some are a little dark) and some good vintage jerseys (if you can call the early 2000's "vintage").
Oh how one simple little goal just ruined his career.
Good tradebait nonetheless. Still some guys collecting his stuff.
I was a little bummed that I only had two hits through most of the box...
..until I hit this.....
Game Used Gloves
#GUG-20 Eddie Shore
Limited to just 30 copies, this glove piece might be tiny, but boy does it pack an impressive punch. Within moments of pulling this card, the remaining boxes of this stuff were sold - off the shelves and being ripped open by the other guys in the store.
I have no doubt that this card will let me recoup my box price (and then a little more). But I'm contemplating just hanging onto it myself. It looks really cool...and I've never had a vintage piece like this before.
Cheap wax.....I love it.
