2021 Topps Chrome Blaster Box

2021 Topps Chrome Blaster Box

For the Retail Rips selection of the week for 14 October we got our hands on a blaster box of 2021 Topps Chrome! While I have been underwhelmed by Topps Chrome this year, well, Topps flagship in general (Series 1, Series 2 and Chrome), this box proved to be an exception and offered up some decent pulls. So, the entire box yielded 21 base cards (7 or which are rookies), with the remaining 11 cards being parallels and inserts (3 of which are rookies), including the Jordan Holloway autograph...

Garbage Pail Kids Hobby Pack Rips

Garbage Pail Kids Hobby Pack Rips

It must be Tuesday because we are ripping some packs of Garbage Pail Kids Food Fight sticker cards today for Everything Collectible Tuesday! Don’t know a whole lot about these new stickers, I used to collect these stickers in my younger days when the original series was out in the mid 80’s and they remained pretty popular through the early 90’s. I do now that we will be looking for parallels including the booger green, spit in your food blue, fools gold, printing plates, artist autos, you are...

eBay Mystery Pack Review: badamanks 716 MLB Mystery Packs

Welcome back fellow collectors, prospectors, and investors, I am back prospecting mystery packs today with another eBay mystery pack review! This week I am looking at the 716 MLB Mystery Packs from the eBay seller badamanks, with a guarantee to receive 5 rookie/prospect cards, parallels, refractors and inserts in every pack. Now the seller says these are MLB prominent, but that other sports will be mixed in as well. So, let’s get ripping! So, as you can see in the video, these packs were...

Flesh & Blood Monarch Levia Blitz Deck

Flesh & Blood Monarch Levia Blitz Deck

I was very impressed with the Flesh & Blood Monarch light warrior blitz deck for Boltyn and the booster pack that I opened, I couldn’t wait to check out the shadow brute Levia hero as well, which does not disappoint. The artwork on all the F&B cards that I have seen to date are just amazing! Take a look with me as we run through the Levia Shadow Brute blitz deck and a booster pack of Monarch unlimited edition. As you can see in the video these blitz decks are packed with great cards...

Retail Rips: 2021 Panini Prizm Baseball

I am excited to announce that we are starting a new video series, retail rips Thursday, where I will be ripping retail packs and boxes that I find in the wild – this will only consist of retail product, so no hobby packs in these videos. For our first retail rip video we have two packs of the Panini 2021 Prizm Baseball, featuring the red, white, and blue parallel card packs! So, let’s get to ripping and see if we can pull any fire! So not a horrible rip at all as we pulled a lot of the popular...

Walmart DC Comics Grab Bag

Walmart DC Comics Grab Bag

We have another first here at Cardboard Prospector today, a comic book grab bag unveiling! Recently I was at the local Walmart looking for some retail cards for ripping on the new YouTube channel and I saw these comic book grab bags on the top shelf, consisting of 4 DC comics for only $9. Well, I shuffled through the packs and there was a single pack that had Harley Quinn showing as the top comic, so naturally, being a Harley Quinn collector, I had to pick up the pack and see what we could...

eBay Mystery Pack Review: Sports & Pokémon

eBay Mystery Pack Review: Sports & Pokémon

Welcome back to another Mystery Pack Sunday! Today we have three mystery packs from the eBay seller cardtraderspecialist which are advertised as “Sports and Pokémon” mystery packs, consisting of 22 cards including rated rookies, Pokémon, DBZ, UFC and more with the chance to pull jersey cards, relics, and even graded cards. Let’s see how we did! So, in complete honesty, this was a disappointing mystery pack for me personally, I anticipated a better balance between sports and gaming cards and...

First Look: Flesh & Blood TCG Monarch

First Look: Flesh & Blood TCG Monarch

Completely new for Cardboard Prospector, today I am doing a first look at the Flesh and Blood trading card game, opening a blitz deck of the Light Warrior Boltyn hero from the Monarch series, as well as a Monarch unlimited booster pack. When I recorded this video, I had some bad information concerning the different series and how a player can build their decks, as I was under the impression that you had to build your decks within the same series, however I have learned that this is incorrect....

2021 Parkside NWSL Premier Edition: Chasing #195

I recently had the opportunity to meet up with my great friend James while he was on home time from cross country trucking. James has his own YouTube channel called James Trucking On where he finds retail cards during his travels and rips packs on video for everyone to see. During his travels he picked up a few boxes of the 2021 Parkside NWSL Premier Edition cards and opened a couple for his channel and saved the third one for me. I am actively collecting the set and am currently one card away...

Shipping Update: eBay Standard Envelope

Shipping Update: eBay Standard Envelope

If you have read our previous blog posts, you know that here at Cardboard Prospector we are seriously against shipping cards via plain white envelope (PWE), the reasons for which are obvious; potential card damage, lack of insurance services for the shipment, greater potential for loss during shipping. Our reasons are many and you can read more about our reasoning in the article Why We NEVER Ship Cards PWE – You Shouldn’t Either. As frequent eBay sellers, the ability to compete with other...
