Overall, this was fun but... don't know if I'm happy with what I got out of it. The Bixler auto, I couldn't care less about having or pulling. The Gibson auto is pretty sweet, and I'm just glad I didn't end up with some scrub player. You do get a lot of base cards in the hobby box which for the money is nice. And you can not go wrong with a Hall of Famer autograph, I am pleased with that.


  1. That Gibson is nice, but I can take or leave the others. The jersey cards are "artifacts" like. Single color and printed by the pallet. There is a gibson on ebay right now, Auction: 230316237579. It will be interesting to see what it goes for.

  2. The Gibson is very nice. But do the other cards seem bland?

  3. Yeah they were a little on the bland side, but it was a lot of fun to open. I usually don't buy high end stuff like this, and the only other time I did was Bowman's Best. I had fun, and the Gibson made the box worth it.

  4. Poor Cabrera. They are still using photos of him when he looked like a blimp.

    Nice break, though.

  5. Not bad if you're a Cards fan like myself. I don't think I could ever convince myself to spend the money on high-end stuff, though.
