The National is over and what a fun time it was. I got to see lots of cool stuff, meet a lot of fun and interesting people, pick up some stuff I didn't think I would, and of course, add to my box break inventory.
All the times I have been on Atlanta Sports Cards website, filling up my cart with all sorts of boxes from an age where collecting was the farthest thing from my mind, and I never once actually completed my order. I don't know why. I just didn't. Seeing that they were actually at the National show, I didn't think for one minute that they would have any of what I wanted. Well I was wrong. They had everything, and then some.
I've been a little burned out on new product (that's not to say I didn't get any) so I wanted to boost my collection a bit with early 00's stuff, namely 2000-01 through 2004-05. The first box I purchased was 2001-02 Pacific Private Stock Titanium.
Not the best year for cards but the Titanium set had such a limited print run of rookie cards, that they all carry a pretty high demand and dollar value. Plus, this was a premium set at the time with only 6 packs and a "hit" in every pack. That hit is a dual sided GU jersey card of various teammates around the league. There is also usually an insert card in each pack as well consisting of a Premier Date parallel, Hobby parallel, All Star, Rookie Team, Saturday Knights, or 3-Star Selection.
I decided to try my hand at another Video Box Break just because I am a glutton for punishment and really have no idea what I am doing. So maybe the practice will help. Check it out if you need to waste 12 minutes of your life on something.
