Hi guys, ok so I’ve never mentioned on my blog but I collect basketball cards and have been collecting ever since I was a kid. Back in those days I used to get a pack a week with the little money I had and very slowly built up a collection. These days I’ve been able to capture the same fun I had when I was a kid collecting but have much more money to do it which allows you to get quite crazy with the hobby! Rather buying cards by the pack, you can buy them by the box or even by the case! You can get more prestigious or limited sets also that only kids could dream of having the money to buy (I was one of them as a 10 year old!).
Last week I had a few boxes of 2010-11 Panini Limited arrive. I wanted to share the hits of each box:
|Lebron James Jersey #’d 25/99||Cole Aldrich Prime Rookie Freshman Patch #’d 19/25|
|Hassan Whiteside Phenoms #’d 166/249||James Anderson Phenoms (Spotlight) #’d 9/10|
|Jonny Flynn Jersey #’d 25/199||Devin Ebanks Rookie Auto #’d 28/99|
I think from now on when I get new cards I’ll be posting the breaks and showing off the hits on my blog. I am also a pretty active member of the Australian card trading site OZCardTrader.com.au. I’ve been posting my box breaks and card collections on there for about a year or so now. My last box break was 3 boxes of 2010/11 Panini Prestige and before that 4 boxes of 09/10 Panini Court Kings (which I posted on OZCardTrader here http://www.ozcardtrader.com.au/forum/live-box-breaks-basketball/87033-2009-10-panini-court-kings-4-box-break-highlights.html).
Not sure what I’ll get next, the limited cards (above) aren’t too bad. The Lebron jersey was a nice hit so we’ll see what happens. I’ll probably figure it out in the next week or so and will likely have the next order arrive early Feb.
