*sits down on this sunny Sunday to get ready for a new post before a day of football begins*
*takes a sip, has box by his side and gets ready*
It's another football Sunday! Woooooooooooooo! I just hope it goes better than this past Monday Night's game.
With fall and football in the air, I decided it was time to finally post a box break I did awhile back that has been sitting in drafts waiting for me.
*takes a sip*
This year, Panini said, "hey-let's release all of the hot products at the end of the football card season all within weeks of each other" when it comes to Prizm, Optic and Select. I don't know what the strategy was to that, but it's been hard to find any of it on the shelf. I also wonder if they did it that way because of such a weak 2022 rookie class. That way they can still make some money.
I have been lucky so far to have been able to open a tiny bit of each product thanks to my father's timing in Walmart. He lives within minutes of it so in-between each job he does, he checks in to see if anything is on the shelf. Comes in really handy because otherwise, the "kid flipper" cleans off the shelf and I wouldn't have any.
Last month, my pops timed it right and grabbed me a blaster of Optic football. I wasn't sure what to expect from it, but I knew I just wanted some.
*takes a sip before moving onto the box*
Each blaster box of 2021 Optic football comes with 6 packs of 4 cards each. There are no guarantees other than three purple shock parallels and each blaster box goes for $35. Once again, I miss the $20 box days.
*takes a sip, begins to rip*
I won't bother boring you with the base cards but will show off my Rated Rookie finds. At the time, I was super stoked to pull the Lance. Now that he is out for the season, not so much. Kids, don't invest in cards....EVER.
There are 200 cards in the regular base set and 100 cards in the Rated Rookie base set.
There are also plenty of parallels to find for both.

*takes a sip before moving onto the inserts*
The inserts in Optic are kind of bland if they don't have some shine.
Like this, The Rookies. Bleh. Trey Lance, now bleh as well. There are 20 cards in the set.
Legendary Logos is pretty cool. There are 20 cards in the set and all of them are holo silver.
The final pack also had a surprise....
Blasters no longer have relic guarantees, so just to pull one is cool now. Nothing big but looks cool.
*takes a sip before finishing up today's post*
Well, not too much to brag about in this break. I have set aside some of the cards I pulled in here for trading buddies I hope to send to them soon. For now, I will also tuck the Trey Lance cards away just in case.....unless I get a good trade offer for them.
Let me know your thoughts on the product and the break.
Best of luck to your teams today, Go Giants and have a Super Sunday!

Yep, never saw these in stores. Thanks for showing them off!ReplyDelete
"Kids, don't invest in cards....EVER." Don't tell that to one of my students. He made over $2000 off of cards he bought and flipped the past two years. He wound up buying a Nintendo Switch, a PS5, and a bunch of games. I'm pretty jealous... because I've been looking for a PS5 for several years now.ReplyDelete
