Default 2 Boxes Famous Fabrics, Pull of My Life

I got two boxes of Famous Fabrics from Blowout today. Here's what I got...


First Box:



Michael Vick Record Breakers Jumbo Patch 1/9


Second Box:



Cal Ripken Jr. Nameplates 1/1 Game Used "P"

I really couldn't believe I pulled this, because I'm usually not too lucky with boxes. This is definitely the best pull I've ever had, especially since I don't think I've ever even seen a whole game used letter of Ripken. Thanks for looking!

Wow that is insanely nice! Congrats man. BTW, is there a checklist for this anywhere? I am interested to see the other guys who have GU letter patches.

2010 Famous Fabrics -Creative Cardboard- Checklist & Review
Ah, thanks. That's too bad they don't include a checklist for the nameplates, they are by far my favorite set from Famous Fabrics.

Hi, try the Creative Cardboard website Creative Cardboard Concepts| Checklist & Card Images
It lists the nameplates and the number of jerseys they used for each player. There appears to be 6 Ripken jerseys in the product total. Congratulations on the great pull.

Now THAT is a nice hit - and IMO, the only reason I'd bust this product - LOVE that Ripken

No clue - but I would imagine rather well, since the boring looking stuff sells so well.

My guess would be probably around 200 give or take.

I agree...I have no idea who is buying this stuff. I don't think I have ever seen a more bland product do so well. If this stuff came out of any of the big names I have a feeling people would be crushing it. Whats the saying you can't regulate taste? Each to their own, the letters look ok but with no picture of the player only a name it still leaves alot to be desired.

I'd guess $300-$400. A Clemens just sold for $183, and he has suffered a lot in the aftermath of his steroid abuse case. Plus, Ripken is one of the best HOF'ers to play the game!

What do the backs of these cards look like? Anyone have a scan? I'd like to read what the CoA says on the back.

Take a look at the Group Case Break we did, front and back of the cards have been scanned.
