Default Gems of the Game ripoff

I was bored and wanted to open something and the store was pretty much out of everything, so I got a box of Gems of the Game. Says an autograph or graded card per box, so I figured there might be something at least halfway decent in there. Box shows a graded Eli manning and a Walter Payton auto... I'm not expecting anything of that caliber but here's what I got:

2006 upper deck rookie exclusive, GRADED a 10 of sinorce moss! Not an auto,, so this card was graded so an idiot like me walks into the store and drops a $20 on this box of crap!!

Lesson learned.. If they are out of stock of what you want, don't settle for garbage!

I think i bought one of those one time,or one like it.Had graded cards on the front and said one or a auto.

I got a 10 bgs score AP,sold it on ebay for $57.Bought another one and got somebody i never heard of bccg 9.My son currently has it in the bottom of his toy boxSo,i basically broke even.

I think it was upper deck series 2. I googled this card and its selling for 60 cents , so maybe since its a graded 10, I will ask 80 cents for it! Lol

Wonder if they ever put anything good in them, peewee u did good with the AP.

I resent you calling that Gem Mint 10 Sinorice Moss garbage! :P

I will take it off your hands, and you don't even need to pay me a dollar! I'll give it free room and board among over 200 other Sinorice Moss cards lol.

Reminds me of those "Hidden Treasures" things I used to see...guaranteed one graded card per pack/box. Bought one and got a 2000 SP Authentic Kordell Stuart base graded BCCG 9. I dare someone to top that.

Nice!! Trade ya! Lol. They must track the 10 random packs they put in them too. I didn't get any of the bigger names in the nfl in any of these packs, however I did get a prince amaruka press pass jersey card! Whooohooo me!!!

The next time I decide that I want to waste $20, I will go to walgreens and get 5 of those $4 pre-assorted random card hangers that they have!

Big dollars right there. The plastic they put it in is worth more then the card.
