Well I thought I wouldn’t buy any cards till October but my birthday happened last week so I decided to make my hobby box order early. I ordered a hobby box of 2013 Elite and 2013 Certified. I’ll post the Elite box some other time but for the time being, this Certified box is more important.
I opened the box yesterday and pulled the greatest card of my life.
Demaryius Thomas Auto 1/1
Needless I was ecstatic. Especially since it’s a great player.
Here are the rest of the hits from this box:
You may have noticed a lack of post lately or maybe you don’t read this blog at all. Most likely the later. The reason though is because I’ve had to take a step back and look at the big picture of my spending habits when it comes to buying cards. Getting back into this hobby took a lot of time and research. Through it all, I’ve had some highs and lows and a lot of spending inbetween.
This has led me to suspend my spending on cards which started on Sept. 8th. I plan on continuiing this until October. Then I will start buying only hobby boxes once per paycheck. I’m thinking of making my first purchase a box of 2013 Certified and maybe also a box of 2012 Topps Magic. I also plan on getting a box of 2013 Panini Playbook at some point in the future.
Until then, I have GTA 5 to help keep my mind off cards. And football.
I may also post other cards I have too. We’ll see.
I got a couple 2013 Topps Jumbo breaks recently. Bengals in a 3 box break and Seahawks, Dolphins and Bears in a 6 box break.
Here are my hits:
I went to Walmart tonight and picked up a “value pack” of 2013 Topps Platnium which just came out this week and a blaster box of 2013 Rookies & Stars.
Check out the good stuff below:
I’ve been wanting to get a Lamar Miller auto for some time now and a couple weeks ago I found the one I wanted. I got an auto of his from 2012 Topps Inception 13/25. It’s currently worth $60 and I paid $30 which I think is fair. As a guy that played at the U and is now playing for the dolphins and should be their starting RB this year, I have high hopes for him and think he can be one of the top backs in the NFL which will hopefully increase his card value.
