Let it be known that I like getting tin containers filled with cards. Actually, I like any kind of container for cards that isn't cardboard because it means one thing- fancy. I like fancy cards.
One of the boxes sent for us to review was this 2010-2011 Panini Timeless Treasures. Product contains 3 autographed or memorabilia cards per tin. I do have one minor issue with these one pack products, why do they have to come in a see through wrapper? The first and last card are the "base" cards, but still, I like the element of total surprise. Small gripe, but worth mentioning.
Without any more jibber jabber, here is what was in the tin:
Anderson Varejao /399
Thaddeus Young /399
NBA Apprentice Dual GU Ekpe Udoh & Gordon Hayward /99
Rookie Recruit Quincy Pondexter auto /299 (It's on leather, but would probably look way cooler on a ball. I don't understand what this is supposed to be signed on, but it's more fun than a sticker or on the card.)
Material InkChris Mullin auto /10
The Chris Mullin card brings back memories of when I was a kid and watched a lot of basketball. It's kind of scary to pull an auto of a guy and say to myself, "Oh, I remember watching him play." I'm old.
While I didn't find the player selection I pulled exciting, other than the Mullin, it still made the box worth it. A 3 color patch serial numbered to 10 is exciting. However, that being said... if I had paid $85 for this tin, I would have probably been kind of bummed out but that's the chance you take on buying just 5 cards.
Anyone open up a tin of 2010-2011 Panini Timeless Treasures and pull a sick auto?
