Sometimes boxes sit in my home and fester until I can't hold back any longer. This is completely different from the way I normally act when it comes to baseball cards. If the box comes in the mail, I could actually sit on it.
If I buy packs or boxes at Target of the local shop, I immediately have to open. And, by immediately, I mean, right in the car in the parking lot before I get home.
Yet, my boxes from Blowout, I let them sit until I decided to open.
Here's the first of two I will highlight.
2008 Masterpieces is a 120-card set with all the cards above 89 being short print. Of the 89 base set, I am missing just four cards from the set after opening the retail box, and just one double.
I received four short prints:
94 - Ryne Sandberg
99 - Ken Griffey Jr.
108 - Joe DiMaggio
110 - Yogi Berrra
Six Yankee Stadium Legacy cards, which are all going to Marie (and it happens to be a trend for this box).
Two framed cards
David Ortiz framed black (another Red Sox insert)
Ken Griffey Jr. #52 framed green 18/75
And, one game-used jersey card, which is also going to Marie. It's like her birthday never ends.
Review: For the $11 or so this cost, this was a great break. I got a jersey card of a star, two variations of stars, including one numbered to 75. I nearly completed the base set and got two Yankee SP. Good times.
