Talking The suspense is killing me! These are the box breaks I like!

*PLEASE NOTE, NOTHING IS FOR TRADE OR FOR SALE*



On the agenda for this evening:

1 2003 Playoff Contenders
1 2001 Playoff Contenders
1 2001 Leaf Certified Materials
2 2003 Leaf Certified Materials
1 2001 Bowman Chrome
1 1998 Topps Chrome
1 1998 Bowman Chrome

I already busted the loose 2003 Leaf Limited pack, and I actually pulled a retro card I wanted to pull. Not a big dollar card, but I remember this thing was smokin hot 6 years ago:


Anyway,

My oldest boy Dane who is 4, loves to crack wax with me, so we'll live break this evening after work.

I really don't like any newer products, so when I'm able to obtain some stuff that I used to love to rip back in my hayday, I jump at the chance.

Stay tuned. Hopefully we pull some nice items!

*edit*

I'll just update the OP with pics

Killed a box of 1998 Topps Chrome!!
























2003 Contenders was disappointing, but I'll still submit the Barnett even though it expired in 2005











2001 LCM was a freaking blast! Great box. Both patches /21, the freshman fabs are /400, manning is out of 88, alstott /75







1998 Bowman Chrome





2001 Bowman Chrome was fun. Glad I could save Derrick Mason before he got wiped away like Marty McFly!






Reggie White Gold Ref /99

Mr. Mason


2001 Contenders, also fun. No Vick, LT or Brees though




But I did pull a FRED-EX!!!!



Mr. Wayne surprised me with a third auto 34/50


And that's all. This was fun. I highly suggest nobody else does this so I still have boxes out there I can buy. Thanks for the look!

Wow wow wow!!! I built both the 2001 & 2003 Contenders sets.

2001 Contenders - you could pull a Vick or a Brees!!! Or a Ben Leard or a Mike McMahon.

2003 Contenders - you could pull a Palmer or a Romo!!! Or a Kyle Boller or a Dave Ragone.

No black peel, but I know what you're talking about!

And yes, that's the point. I'm back to my roots. No new products look good to me. I'm having a blast pissing away my money!

Exactly. Through the midst of everything, this was an awesome break. I love going back to my roots. My favorite parts of the older cards too were the fact they depict a photo of the jersey the swatch was cut from. Companies took pride in what they did. Miss those days.
