January 7, 2010

2009 Ticket to Stardom Box Break

I've been meaning to post this for a while, I opened the box Christmas night after all the family left and I could open them without people wanting to touch them. I don't like people handling my cards unless it's really necessary or they collect cards and know how to handle them.

The first pack I opened had this card:

Clearly I will be sending this to Sooz because she needs it and I don't want it. The one and only useful card was in the first pack. No, really. Keep reading.

Here are the other hits:

Serial numbered blue parallels

Serial numbered gold parallels

Big Tickets

Ticket to Stardom, and a Seasoned Veteran

Daric Barton dual game used jersey card with ticket

Prince Fielder Big Ticket (didn't scan very well for some reason)

Matt Cain auto redemption (which I haven't redeemed yet)
This might sound terrible, but this box was more entertaining the the Unique. At least they were decent swatches and you got a ticket stub. Oh and the auto is of a guy who doesn't totally suck. That being said, if anyone wants to trade for any of the relics or autos other than Kouz let me know.


  1. I'd be very interested in trading for that Prince ticket card. I was at that game after all. Let me know what you're looking for.

  2. lol...waiting for everyone to leave so they won't touch your cards when u open em. I agree totally but it still makes me laugh reading that.

  3. Haha I have that same peeve. People touching my cards bothers me. Especially people who will touch them with dirty fingers.

    Anyway, I was wondering if the Hanley and Ichiro inserts were available for trade?

  4. I don't even like handling my own cards. Once they get put away, there is a good chance they will never leave the binder sheet, penny sleeve, or snap case they got put into.

    Nico- still available. What are you forking over?

  5. I would be interested in that Cain redemption. YOu like the Cardinals, right? I'll see what I have.

  6. Omega- just Pujols. Will trade for Cano, Lind, Pujols, and a few random others. E-mail me.

  7. congrats on the bonus hit!

    My box (and it's my understanding all boxes) should just have 3 hits.

    my blog has the daily packbreaks (and scans will be following soon).

  8. I got the same dang Redemption card in my packs. Redeemed it over a month ago. Still waiting.

  9. I have 7 Yankee Stadium Legacy cards, a Bob Gibson blue parallel from 2008 Heroes #/199, and some other stuff. Do you have a certain team that you collect or just players?
