Review: Did you notice something special about this box? I didn’t realize it until I completed posting the pack-by-pack break, but there were 25 packs, one more than a typical box. Sadly it didn’t contain a super hit or anything. BUT, it did add 8 unofficial G-A-C points to my box score! This was easily the best box of the three that I opened. The Relics all earned bonus points, and the auto was simply awesome.

I intend to write more about this product and get some more images out this weekend, but for now this will have to do. Also, I’ll have to re-do my G-A-C scoring, some of the points are still being tweaked.

  1. You know you’re only allowed to enter 2 boxes, right?

  2. Man that Dominique auto is sweet! Any chance you’d trade it?
