Breaking 2013 Panini Certified Football Hobby Boxes

Breaking 2013 Panini Certified Football Hobby Boxes

We’ve had a couple of 2013 Panini Certified Football Hobby boxes sitting in inventory for the last few months now with absolutely zero traction from the community on them, despite selling them at a loss, so we said f@#k it and decided to break those puppies ourself last night and see what we could pull. Now the 2013 Certified hobby boxes guarantee four hits, with at least one auto per box, so obviously, we were secretly hoping we would pull a Russell Wilson Mirror Gold Signature, or an Emerald...

Prospecting Jordan College Cards for Profit

Prospecting Jordan College Cards for Profit

Being a prospector means I am always on the lookout for insane deals and under the radar auctions that could produce good amounts of profit either on raw resale, or turned into investment pieces through grading. Last month I came across such an opportunity, while searching for under the radar auctions on eBay, I found a set of six Michael Jordan cards from the 1989 Collegiate Collection which were listed as being in new condition, having been ordered and delivered in special hard plastic...

There was only one listing photo, which I have included below, and as you can see, many of the cards...

Ya Win Some, Ya Lose Some – 2020 Panini Certified Box Break

Doing live box breaks was a fun obsession for me last month – paying a card breaker for a blaster or hanger and watching as they rip the packs – for the life of me honestly, I don’t know why. There are a couple of drawbacks to doing live breaks, the first and probably biggest being that you are most likely going to overpay for the box – if a blaster box is $19.99 at your local retailer, but you’re paying a breaker $30, well, that’s a big difference. And considering that many of the breakers...

Breaking a 2020 Donruss Elite Football Blaster

In my recent return to sports card collecting and prospecting, I have discovered live box breaks and pulls. I talked about pulls recently in my article ‘Exercising Patience for Higher Profits’ but today I will be looking at a box break that I did with an Instagram card seller recently, which ended up producing a great hit! The box in question was a blaster box of 2020 Donruss Elite football – I paid $37 for the box, including shipping, and watched as the host ripped my packs. There were some...
