This is my first post and to start off, I will document my adventure to a card shop in LA that I visited while I was out there called Games and Cards located in Eagle Rock. It felt great walking into this place because being from South Florida, there’s nothing like it here. The prices were a little steep compared to what you can get online (2013 Topps Jumbo box was $110 at the shop and about $90 online) but I certainly didn’t mind supporting the shop as I’m sure they don’t see that much business in today’s economy.
Now onto the cards, I bought a box of 2013 Topps Finest Football and a couple misc. packs of football and basketball. I didn’t hit anything in the misc. pack but here’s what I got in the Finest box:
Stedman Bailey RC Auto Patch (3-color and not numbered)
Jarvis Jones RC Auto Patch
Dion Jordan RC 16/25
Rob Gronkowski 7/99
Refractors – Tavarres King RC, Ed Reed, Jeremy Maclin and Reggie Wayne
Notable RC’s – E.J. Manuel, Matt Barkley, Manti Te’o, Ryan Nassib, Andre Ellington, Tyler Eifert, DeAndre Hopkins and Stepfan Taylor
Overall I’d say it was a decent box, I like the way the cards look. No idea what the pricing is like yet.
