A Challenge

To go to Dave and Adams, Blowout or Big T, and post in my comment section what you would buy with $850.

The limitations: No 2009 Topps, still a waste, No 2009 Heritage, still a waste. The boxes must be 2003-present and can be any combination of Hockey, Baseball, Football or Basketball.

The person with the best list (purely my opinion) will win a prize from the sport they choose.

i think you should buy some 2007 ultimate baseball, 2007 sweet spot and sweet spot classic baseball, 2007 sp rookie edition baseball, and 2007 or 2008 sp authentic baseball.

I could go high end but why go against who I am just because I have $850 to blow:

2008 A&G, Topps Chrome, Goudey, Masterpieces, Timelines

2007 A&G, Topps 52, Turkey Red, Elements, Goudey, Masterpieces, SP Legendary Cuts

2006 Turkey Red

2005 UD Origins

3 Packs of 2005 Turkey Red and 4 Packs of 2006 Bazooka

Grand Total $850 and a whole lot of wholesome fun.

Also, I would open every box with my brother, splitting the packs, then trading after each box. It's more fun that way!

I'd buy as many boxes of 2006 Allen & Ginter as I could get for $850 and start ripping. As soon as my set was complete, I'd sell off the rest and use the money to buy as much 2001 Heritage I could get.

How much fun would breaking all of this be?

2004 Playoff Honors (Awesome set!)
2007-2008 Chronology Basketball
2006 National Treasure Football
2007 Premier Baseball and
2007 Sweet Spot Classic Baseball

Good stuff man!

Here's a smorgasbord of stuff if I had $850 to drop on boxes:

A. 08 Masterpieces Baseball Hobby Box $50 (Sweet Design)

B. 08 Masterpieces Football Hobby Box $60 (See Above)

C. 07/08 SPx Basketball Hobby Box $91 (I want a Durant autographed rookie.)

D. 07/08 Topps Letterman Basketball Hobby Box $165 (The FB version stinks, but this one is nice.)

E. 07 Topps TX Exclusives Football Hobby Box $85 (I think the autographed tickets are pretty neat. Too bad they're sticker autos.)

F. 06 Sweet Spot Football Hobby Box $44 (I've had really good luck with stuff and the on card/helmet autos are nice.)

G. 05/06 SP Signature Basketball Hobby Tin $52 x 2 = $104 (I'd need two of these... One for the C. Paul auto and the other for the D. Williams auto.)

H. 05 Ultimate Collection Football Hobby Box $229 (The Pack will be back again this year... I hope... and Rodgers is going to shine.)

I. 05/06 Beehive Hockey Hobby Box $64 (I've been in love with Beehive since Pinnacle opened my eyes to them in 97/98. Who wouldn't want an AO or Crosby signed Photo Graph card?)

J. 07 Bowman Baseball Hobby Pack $2 (It's the first $2 pack I came across and you can't go wrong with Bowman... at least when it comes to a $2 pack of baseball cards.)

Great question! I haven't searched around D&A in a long time. Now I'm thinking about actually picking up a few of these boxes.

Groat said...

Can't even decide what to spend your own money on, huh? I suppose I can make a list of my own. All these prices are from DA.

2 Boxes 2008 Playoff Absolute - $218
2 Boxes 2008 SPA - $234
1 Box 2007 Leaf Limited - $99
2 Boxes 2007 Sweet Spot football - ~$130
1 Box 2007/08 O-Pee-Chee Premier Hockey - $126

Oh, and of course you'd have to give me all of the Clinton Portis cards. I almost suggested a 'box' of ITG Ultimate Memorabilia, which is the craziest set ever (both in terms of cost and that people actually buy it.)

I busted a case of 07/08 SPX and didn't come within shouting distance of an Oden or a Durant.

Word verification bedophyl.

Fuji said...

See... That improves my odds of pulling the Durant in just 1 box :)

How do you think I was planning on pulling the Paul & Williams rookies in just 2 packs?

It's called karma... I've been patient for all of these years... this is my time to shine!

1. 05 Bowman Draft. 180.00
2. 07 Donruss Elite EE 110.00
