Trade Part 2

I was thinking about how to describe this trade and write it up my friend had a ton of 90's hockey cards that he had that he didn't want or need think these are all doubles we use to go to Hershey Bears games often back then and did a ton of autographing so I know these are the real deal so I picked through the box and came up with 160 cards that I didn't have so he said take that was about a year ago so I made it a point to make sure we completed and came up with a deal for these I had them sitting in a box awaiting finalization wound up costing me a few 8 x 10's and a signed magazine cover. Then I was thinking do I really want to list all 160 cards and figured no but I will put the 10 pictures 16 cards so you can see them.

Bronzell Miller

I received this card in the mail today was an Ebay purchase the card cost me .01 with shipping at .50 cents. Not sure how some sellers on Ebay make any money case in point this card with postage, Ebay Fees and Paypal Fees this sale was a net loss! But whatever I'll take almost any autograph for .51 cents. I didn't realize this when I purchased this but Bronzell Died on December 21, 2013 from Cancer and had a pretty interesting life He played in college for Utah and then in the NFL with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Won a Grey Cup in 1998 with the Calgary Stampede and then was an actor in such movies as Mr. 3000 and Bringing Down the House and had 9 Children.

2013 Panini America’s Pastime Baseball Cards Arrived

Today I received a Fed-Ex box from Panini inside was the box of 2013 Panini America’s Pastime Baseball box that I won from them on January 7th. Inside was the following:
  • 1 Book Card
  • 3 Autographs
  • 2 Memorabilia Cards
  • 1 Insert
  • 2 Numbered Base Cards
  • 10 Total Cards
and this is what I got:
Here is what the packaging and pack looked like was nicely done:
Top of Box as it arrived

Bottom of Box 

Unwrapped box

Opened box with pack

Pack free of box

These packs are FAT!
The following four cards are the regular cards no Auto's or Memorabilia:
Mike Piazza # 107 #'d 93/125

Brett Oberholtzer # 224 #'d 91/125
C.C. Sabathia # 60 #'d 21/25
Pete Rose Decades #D1 #'d 18/25
The following are the 2 Memorabilia cards:
Awesome triple jersey Past, Present & Future of Nolan Ryan, Justin Verlander & Matt Harvey # PF-MH #'d 59/99

Pat Tabler Pastime Signatures #PT #'d 95/125
Frank White Pastime Signatures #FW #'d 4/25
Eury Perez Rookie Autograph # 263 #'8/10
And finally the big hit in this product to me is the booklets! These cards look amazing with 4 windows this includes autograph in the upper right a black jersey piece in the lower left and two prime patch pieces in the upper left and lower right which look like part of the "A" in Arizona and the "D" from Diamondbacks and how limited is this card you ask how about #'d 3/5.

 I'd like to that Panini for this since with a suggested price of $249 a box not sure currently i'd be able to buy a box but it sure was fun to rip this baby open! Would love to open more with ever card basically a HIT!
