I used to do it so much more I'd get like 9-10 boxes a year plus go to shows and what not trying to get more cards.

Now I just get Auto Photos and Mini Helmets mainly

But now they put the cardboard in there. And to get the more valuable cards...you gotta go to a shop to get those brands.

And look to trade that card once he reaches the hall of fame. Nothing is better than a hot topic. Either death or hall of fame gets a guy in the news.

I guess that whats makes it so much fun. If you hit a monster you can make 3x on your money on just one card.

My Cam Newton alone is worth 120.. The Gabbert is worth 50.

for the 3 boxes total i paid 115 + 10 to ship. 

haha yeah, we pulled Jersey cards all the time but for every Kobe-Lebron we got we would get like 4 Luke Waltons.

We always said why in the world are they even making a Luke Walton jersey card hahaha

The duncan was worth like 150 at the time

Pokemon. Ahhhh...the good ole' days. I "grew up" in that era and then it turned to Yugioh when I was in 5th/6th grade.

They had them in when we did it. They make it harder and we would get fooled sometimes but it's still doable.

Ebay is great for boxes. Can get some stellar Deals.

Going to Sports Shows works great too.

I'm going to this one http://mab-celebrity.com/c-1978-return-to-glory.aspx

My Dad's First Cousin is Rocky Colavito so we're going up to see him.

garbage i remember being at the card store and a guy came in a bought a box and it was no ordinary box. It was a "hot box". I guess sometimes the companies make these boxes and you never know where they are. Every single pack had MULTIPLE game used jerseys and autos. Was crazy to watch.

Yea...I've seen them. $50 a pack for the one I saw because that set had a LeBron James rookie autograph out of 5. If you get it...that's a few grand. But that's if you get it.

Best cards i ever pulled.

Micky Mantle piece of jersey out of SPX. Yellow tint to the jersey with a pin stripe in it. Ted Williams piece of Korean War jersey out of Topps Heritage. I had tons more but those were the ones that stuck out. 


This is the Ted Williams card but has Whitey Ford on it. Couldnt find Ted Williams

There are only 10 of those cards so what are the chances one of those other 9 people posted it on the internet. Kind of crazy if you think about it. Jim lets hit up the card shack this weekend.
