2016 Adventures in Repacks: Part 24.1 - Comfort Food
1 97/98 Be A Player (with an autograph)
1 07/08 Ultra
3 08/09 Victory
1 10/11 Victory
1 10/11 Donruss
1 11/12 Score
All the sticker packs were 09/10 Panini. For the first post, I'll cover the card packs, ignoring the BAP with the auto, and then cover that, the relic and the stickers tomorrow. As seems to be my most common method of recapping a bunch of packs, I'll attack chronologically.
And this is not the most spectacular start to this. I guess the best card here is the parallel, with Fedorov being a Hall of Famer, albeit this coming from a stint that wasn't the most memorable.
And the big surprise was that two of the better cards came from the Victory packs.
And along with that, why not pull a box hit from a repack box. Gold parallels are 1:36, so those are nice, even if the one I pull is of Pierre Marc-Bouchard.
And even both inserts were needs as well. I'm not actively trying to build the inserts, but if more fall into my lap, I can see myself hunting down the rest at COMC/sportlots. I have 24 of the SotC cards, and 22 of the Breakers. Both are 50 cards each. Given their repack frequency, I'll probably knock enough off the list to go for it.
This might have been the only repack break ever where the best cards came from the Victory release. Tomorrow, the hits and the stickers!
