The middle card was the main reason I did this - its an insert and a vintage style of card I really like. I know its a hockey design, but its a design I like. The other two cards were a dollar add on from the seller with a quarter extra for shipping so i just added them on since I needed them for my player collection
2008 Stadium is a favorite of mine even though there are many critics of the product, but then again I only spend twenty dollars a week, and the main thing that is repeated about the product is it isn't worth what they pay. As for blasters go, twenty dollars is the standard and to get it half off makes it a super steal to me. The first blaster of Stadium I picked up was probably back in March (i think) and I fell in love with these cards. I scored a Mark Ellis auto and some other nice cards. Then as weeks went I by I acquired two more Stadium blasters and recieved triples of about a dozen cards and doubles of about twenty. So that soured me on the Stadium experience even though I loved the photography and was still with out the Longoria cards I wanted. Well thanks to clearance prices I decided to dip in the Stadium blaster pool again and truth be told I am very happy I did. Here is what I got:
WOW!! a photographer's proof number 28/50 - Nice :)
Delmon sliding and Luke who is starting to pitch to the hype of last year
very nice start
Votto great photo
Crawford - YEAH! - a Ray and a card for my PC and an awesome photo
Hanley action shot of him playing the field - did I mention I love these cards
and I scored an Auto
WOW!!! what a pack :)
BJ!! what a great photo
Happy! Happy!! Joy! Joy!!
I am very happy with the blaster - I got a great mix of players and a bunch of cards I didn't already have. The two Rays cards are great and the proof card was a happy surprise (I figured they were a hobby exclusive, happy to be wrong). Of course the auto I will have to wait for but I don't mind. Some of these photos are just amazing. Definitely a fun blaster. Thanks again for checking out This Week in Cardboarding.
