Right before Labor Day, Dave and Adam's Card World had a sale and I decided to get a few boxes. I picked up two low priced 2013 Panini Pinnacle boxes, a box of 2015 Diamond Kings and a box of 2015 Panini Cooperstown.
I consider this product as a higher end one as it is only 1 pack of 12 cards for about $80-90. I have watched a ton of box breaks of this on youtube and realized that I have autos of most of the people in this product but when I saw it on sale I was feeling kind of lucky so I figured what the heck. My hope was that I would secure an auto or two of some guys I don't already have as part of my HOF Auto Collection.
As I mentioned and the top of the box clearly indicates this is a 12 card box. Since it is such a low number, I figured I would share the front of each card. First up is an Armed Forces insert:
Next up is a Crown Royale insert of Tommy Lasorda, I probably couldn't ask for a worse subject to pull. This silver version is numbered 61/75 and probably won't last long in the ARPSmith household.
Now onto the two Autographs...
this pull from 2015 Topps Series 1 and The Ryan Express strikes again, this time paired with the Baby Bull, Orlando Cepeda. Numbered out of only 5 and featuring Ryan, this is one of the better non-cut autos out of the product I have to believe. In part due to a comment by cynicalbudda, I kept the one out of 2015 as a second Ryan auto. I am kind of torn right now on what I am going to do with this one. On one hand, it is a pretty cool and very rare card and it does feature Cepeda who is in the Hall as a Giant. On the other hand, there is nothing that signifies the Giants on the card and I could way more than recoup the cost of the box (and maybe the entire order) if I sell it. I will give it a few more days and see.
Overall I was very happy with the box, a very nice design on most cards, can't beat Hall of Famers as subject matters and I got some really good cards in the break.
