The mailbag was good to me today, rolling in with a pair of envelopes. One to start a trade, with the other to finish off a break. I'll hit the latter first, even though the first main envelope rolled in almost two weeks ago. I did feel I should wait until the second part arrived. So, I'll wait to get to the R.A. box until probably the weekend.
The randomizer was very good to me in the last mojobreak random break, a basketball break where I ended up with the Celtics, and ended up with a nice autograph of Robert Parish numbered to 10. So, I went for a football break this time, featuring 2014 products. The ol' randomizer landed on Denver for me, so let's look at the Broncos goodies.
Get used to seeing Peyton Manning in this post.
And finally, SPX. Hope you like Peyton.
But, there was one more to go. The randomizer was still very good to me when this came out of one of the Prestige packs.
So, I had to then select a 250 point card. There were no baseball cards at this point, so I limited to some other sports. At that level, the Senators only had some redemption specific 1/1s, which didn't really appeal to me. For the Bills, they had some nice cards at 250, but I'd already acquired a nice collection of relics and autos from the 2013 rookie class, so I passed on those. There was a DeRozan card for the Raptors, but that was a relic card shared with other non-Raptors, and that didn't really appeal to me. I went back to football to look for Alshon Jeffrey cards for my 2/14 collection, but those were of cards that I could have added at not too great a cost at COMC, so I passed again.
Finally, I just went to hockey, and searched on 250 point cards. I almost pulled the trigger on an Alex Chiasson 4-colour patch /25 from Certified, seeing as he will be a Senator next season. This was going for $50 on COMC, so it would feel like a good turnaround.
But, that would still be a Dallas card.
Eventually, I decided to go for a simple, one-colour Hall of Famer relic.
Still, the shipping cost left a bad taste in my mouth, and any future point redemption cards will likely get sold.
