2019 Adventures in Repacks - Part 11.1 - Straight from the Source

Knowledge can be a dangerous thing. While watching break videos on youtube, I learned that Presstine, the provider of Dollarama goodies, made repacks with more cards than the standard 15, or even 80 cards. 250 cards worth of repacks? Yes, please! While they don't seem to be available in stores, they are available online.

So, I can get repacks sent directly to me? Yes, please!

I picked up these:

A 250 card hockey repack
A 250 card football repack
A 100 card basketball repack (w/ a hit guaranteed)
An 11 card goalie pack (w/ a hit guaranteed)

That should get double digits worth of posts!

Since it has been the longest since I've busted some football repacks, I'll start with that one. 250 cards is a lot, so I'll break it up into 4 similarly sized stacks. There were no hits promised in these, but there were still a couple lurking within.
2014 Rookies & Stars - Golden Tate - We're off and running. While I generally don't like cards without a photo background, at least it is team colours here.
1991 Pro Set - Andre Ware
1990 Pro Set - Mark Murphy
1992 Portraits - Pat Swilling - A drawn card.
1991 Platinum - Brian Noble - While there was a lot of the regular early 90s Pro Set, there was also a lot of Platinum, their slightly higher-end brand. The full bleed on these have aged extremely well, even if you don't have the player's name on the front.
1990 Pro Set - Lindy Infante
1991 Platinum - Jackie Slater
1997 Playoff - Brett Favre
1991 Bowman - Duane Bickett
1991 Platinum - James Brooks
2009 Topps - BenJarvus Green-Ellis
1999 Pacific - Ernie Mills - The most obscure set so far.
1991 Pro Set - Bruce Kozerski
1990 Pro Set - Trace Armstrong
2015 Chrome - Golden Tate - Starting me off with a lot of Golden Tate.
1990 Pro Set - Johnny Holland
1990 Topps - John Roper
1990 Pro Set Super Bowl - SB XI Poster
1991 Platinum - Jeff George
2002 Ultra - Jamal Anderson - It is hard to find an Ultra design that didn't age well.
1988 Topps - Oilers Team
2004 Elite - Carson Palmer
1989 Pro Set - Robert Lyles
1990 Pro Set - Pepper Johnson
1993 Stad. Club - Derek Brown
2003 Ultra - TJ Duckett - Again, Ultra.
1990 Pro Set - Bruce Smith - Bills content!
1990 Pro Set - Ron Hallstrom
1990 Pro Set - Bill Parcells
1989 Pro Set Super Bowl - XXII Logo
1990 Pro Set Super Bowl - Weeb Ewbank
1990 Pro Set - Neal Anderson
1994 Stad. Club - Dewayne Washington
1991 Wild Card - William Thomas
1990 Pro Set - Ron Hallstrom - I'm highlighting this because while I did receive dupes in this repack of some cards, I received about 7 of these.
2000 Contenders - Keyshawn Johnson - Contenders and their ticket motif design is always one of my favourites to look for each year.
1991 Topps - Gill Fenerty - CFL stats on the back!
1995 Ultra - Johnny Thomas
2010 Contenders - Calvin Johnson - Another nice Contenders card and design.
1989 Pro Set - Frank Minnifield
2008 UD First Ed - Edgerrin James - Despite playing several years there, it still looked odd to see James not in a Colts uniform.
2012 Strata - Matthew Stafford
1992 All World - Quentin Coryatt - The most patriotic design in the cube.
1989 Pro Set - Eric Martin
2001 SPA - Peerless Price
1991 Pro Set - Rod Woodson
1989 Pro Set Super Bowl - XX Logo
1993 Ultra - Eric Dickerson - Forget James as a Cardinal, how about Eric Dickerson as a Falcon? He spent 4 games there.
1992 UD - Bill Brooks
1991 Portraits - Richard Williamson
2015 NCAA Contenders - Nick Marshall
1991 Pro Set - Kent Hull
1991 Score - Steve DeBerg
1990 Pro Set - Neal Anderson
2008 Press Pass - DeSean Jackson/Justin Forsett
2014 UD - Victor Hampton - Just a great photo for a college release.
1996 Finest - Curtis Conway
1993 Bowman - Ricky Proehl
1990 Pro Set - John Roper
1989 Pro Set - Brian Bosworth
1990 Pro Set - Troy Benson
2016 Prizm Draft - Kentrell Brothers - This might have been the most recent card in the repack.
1994 UD - Steve Emtman
1991 Score - Brett Perriman
1989 Topps Traded - Tim Johnson - Not the Tim Johnson that would manage the Blue Jays after saving the lives of an entire platoon in 'nam.
1990 Pro Set - Andre Ware
1988 Topps - Roger Vick - And this will end the first approximate quarter of the cube.

Another 60-ish cards next time!
