When I pick up a repack, there are things I expect. It is mainly from the overproduction era, with some recent cards thrown in. But there are gems. Perhaps there would be a unique minor league hockey jersey photo from an ITG set. A memorable photograph. A unique design that I'd never seen before.
I don't expect refractors.
Check that. I don't expect X-fractors.
I don't expect rookie X-fractors.
I don't expect rookie X-Fractors that are numbered.
I don't expect rookie X-Fractors that are numbered out of 199.
But hey, sometimes these beauties show up where you least expect to find them.
As always, the best thing about repacks. If you find a gem like this, there's more cards to go with this. All for a dollar. 9 more basketball cards. 10 more football and 10 more baseball cards. That's always something good to expect.
What does it say about me that my second favourite card in the pack is a card from of a punter from one of my least-liked teams?
