This isn’t the best pulls or most amazing break hit wise or even best value. This is what I consider to be the products that were most fun to break. Granted I don’t open every product so this is based on the 25-30 boxes I had the pleasure to bust this past year.
The fist is a product I have been a fan of for many years. Topps Update. This was a fun break based on the number of rookies
and some fun parallels
Nothing earth shattering, no monster hits but just a lot of fun checking out cards of the new guys in the league. Dudes like Mike Trout and Hossmer getting their first true Topps card.
The cognac parallels received some ire from fans but I think they add a lot to the break. They are nice for team and player collectors and look nice in a binder.
Update, like Topps series 1&2 is just a good old fashion fun break.
Next is a product is one I liked a lot and had a great time opening. Plates and Patches.
The real key to the fun of this break was the packaging. It’s a one pack deal in a nice hinged outer box and little box inside had a fun high roller feel for just about $100.
I didn’t pull any p those big hits but still had fun opening my box and that’s what this post is about.
My number one fun break is something that would have made the list since ’07. Elite Extra Edition.
I opened two boxes of EEE and both were a blast. The first was a hot box and was amazing. 10 autos is always gonna be a good time.
One thing that tends to happen in the hit driven era we live in is that a pack with no hit is just tossed aside or at least scanned pretty quickly. With EEE each pack held my interest. The base cards were cool and loaded with top prospects and with one inserts parallel or auto in seemingly every pack you had something cool to check out.
I have always enjoyed busting EEE and this year was no different. I can’t wait for 2011 to drop in a few days.
What about ya’ll, what was your pick for most fun break?
