#PackADailyCircus - A Crapload of Stuff

When I got home on Monday, there was a H-U-G-E box on my deck from Crackin Wax! My "crapload of stuff (his words, not mine)" had arrived!!

I decided to do a video break and that video (as I write this) is currently being finalized and will be uploaded to Youtube. Once it is done. I will post it on Tribecards for all to see. In the meantime, I am posting the list of cards I received in the box. These came by way of "Gold Wrapper" packs from Sports Card Album, some cards loaded in toploaders and cards busted from a blaster of 2014 A&G. These are not in the same order as the video nor are they in any particular order.

*I have yet to decide if certain cards will be drafted by their "group" (Ex: The Personalities) or by the individual card. Knowing me, it will be the latter, but I have to think on that a bit. We do have precedent in that Kate Hudson, logo cards, and team cards were/are all drafted individually. I dunno.

Congratulations, managers!! There were some incredible cards in this prize package! A H-U-G-E thanks to Topher and CrackinWax for the prize, but mostly for helping raise money for charity through the hobby!! Everything listed above just a small portion of the massive box sent to me. As mentioned above, I will post the video break of the prize box as soon as I can. This was a lot of fun!!

Scans of all manager hits will be posted later. In the meantime, here's a little something to whet your appetite!


  1. WAHOOOO! I'M STILL ALIVE!!! Cool I got a back-to-back after going dry for a longtime. Gotta look at the free agents list.

    1. You are just more highly selective than some of the other managers. :-)

  2. Why didn't I put Jim Rice higher on my initial draft...

  3. Nice post man! Topher is a good guy. I recently completed my second charity case break with him. I like his personal auto card.
