Recently I have been dabbling with basketball cards to fill the void left by the lack of baseball cards being released. Well, more like the lack of affordable baseball cards being released. I haven't been buying much because of the holidays and trying to buy presents, but when I have been in the mall if I got some presents for others I grabbed a cheap pack or rack pack for myself. I should reward myself for being jolly, right?
Anywho, I picked up a rack pack of 2010-2011 Panini Presitge a week or so ago and pulled this card:
Jordan Crawford auto /499
I have never pulled an autograph out of a rack pack of baseball, and RARELY if ever, pulled one from a retail pack of baseball. That was fun, I should buy people stuff more often.
Yesterday, I was in Target and just wandering around before grabbing some dinner and saw a FRESH box of 2010-2011 Panini Rookies & Stars, so I grabbed the second to last pack on the right and high tailed it to the checkout. Bada bing!
Daniel Orton 1/5 !!!!!!!!
Ok, so now I am convinced this isn't normal for being a basketball collector. There is hardly any chance of this happening on a regular basis, although if it could, I may seriously get into basketball cards. Serial numbered 1/5 in a retail pack?!!! Come on.
So for all you basketball collectors out there, is this luck or do you find that you get more out of basketball packs than baseball?
