2010 Panini Century Collection - Sponsored by Panini
This was sent over by Panini. You can get them for about $145 at Big T, $153 at Blowout and significantly more at DA Cardworld.
I like these baseball stamp cards.
This Sinatra/Kelly card is absolutely beautiful
Picture is a bit fuzzy on this Spahn. I'm sure Panini could have found a better pic. But its Warren frickin Spahn!
Nice Senior Picture Gary - This is a sweet sweet patch. Good use of white space.
Ok, I only have a couple critiques about these cards. I like Blue autos, these look like facsimile autos. The autos are stickers. Having said that, this is one of the best most fun breaks I have ever done. The cards are fantastic, high quality and just look nice. This was so much fun to open and I was genuinely excited to see it in the box from Panini. I had high expectations and this box delivered.
5 out of 5 Joes recommend this product. Why would I give this a perfect score knowing how much I despise sticker autos? The answer is simple, for the money this couldn't be a better break, this is a fresh idea by Panini, and I haven't had more fun opening packs. Is this a rip and flip product? Not at all. I have no idea how much these cards would go for on ebay, but I could care less.
In comparison, Prime cuts is a decent break for $150 but even then, half the box is junk. These days Prime Cuts is like $300 for some reason that I cannot figure out and I have busted 5 boxes of Prime Cuts. I would pay $150 for these boxes and not regret it a bit.
