Yet more cards for the CM Punk collections and the 2010 Topps auto collection came over the last few days. The first card to arrive was one of the best I’ve added to the Punk collection. Manged to secure it for only $25 too. I saw the CM Punk red 1/1 of the other Platinum insert set (Platinum Performance) appear on eBay in the inital flood of Platinum cards around the end of last year but it was snapped up for $80 almost instantly. I actually had the cash at the time to splurge but only discovered the listing in the Completed Listings after it had sold.

– 2010 WWE Platinum Legendary Superstars insert Red 1/1 CM Punk/Terry Funk

 

Next up was a lot of 6 different 2010 Topps WWE autograph cards. The dual Punk/Serena is for the Punk collection and the rest are for the base auto collection. I now only need 3 autos for that collection, Sheamus, John Cena & The Big Show. If anyone reading this has one for trade then leave a comment here with your email and I’ll get back to you. The total price of this lot (all were separate Best Offers) was $57 with the Edge being $18, the Punk/Serena being $13 and the rest averaging abou $5 to $7.

[Box Breaks #2] Topps 2010 Football Hobby #1

2 Nov

This is part two of the five card box break. This one was a little better than the UFC but still not a great pull out of the box. Managed to get a relic rather than an auto. I have a 2010 Jumbo box up next so I’m hoping for something crazy out of that box.

Relic:
Matt Ryan QB Peak Performance game used relic

Black Parallel:
#316 Marion Barber (04/55)

Gold Parallels:
#40 Chris Johnson (264/2010)
#118 Cutis Lofton (1600/2010)
#158 Rashad Jennings (1187/2010)
#165 Cortland Finnegan (1826/2010)
#240 Ryan Grant (1982/2010)

[Box Breaks #1] 2010 Topps UFC Round 4 Box #1

2 Nov

This is the fist part of a multi box break. My package from dacardworld was finally delivered this morning after managing to pay the delivery man this morning!

For the first box this was a really, really disappointing break. Both autos are two of the most common in the set and both relics are basic mat relics, not even an event worn relic..

Autos:
Chris Tuchscherer
Jim Miller

Relics:
Nate Marquardt
Clay Guida

Parallel:
Shane Carwin #98 (13/188)

[Wrestling] WWE Slam Attax Starter Pack + 10 booster opening

17 Oct

As I mentioned in the previous post I would be picking up a Starter Pack of the WWE Slam Attax collection and here you go. I did this as a live video break simply to test out uploading videos to youtube as I haven’t done it before. Since this worked out fine, I’ll more than likely live break any and all boxes from now on!

[Wrestling] 5 Packs WWE Slam Attax Mayhem

16 Oct

I got 5 packs of these cards picked up for me today, I was hoping to also get a Starter Pack but they were out in the toystore I checked. Hopefully, I’ll get one of those in my regular card shop.

The Slam Attax Mayhem set has 224 base cards (much more than this year) and 59 Foil Cards (which are 1 per every 2 packs except for the Champion Cards which are 1 per every 5). The back of the pack notes that there are 838 Authentic Autograph cards in total around. There’s 3 different autos to be found: Sheamus, The Miz & Kofi Kingston. Just like last year there are multiple Limited Edition Cards to be found as well. I’ve emailed Topps UK about these and when they reply letting me know where they can be found I’ll post that info on here as well.

As for the 5 packs purchased I managed to pull the following and managed to beat the stated odds:

Jack Swagger (Champion Foil)
Melina (Champion Foil)
World Heavyweight Championship (Foil)
Beth Pheonix Glam Slam (Signature Move Foil)
Christian Killswitch (Signature Move Foil)
