It’s been a little while since I’ve posted anything as I’ve just been a little busier than normal. However, I’ve still been buying cards and today I’ll show you a recent purchase that I was pleased with.
I recently purchased two blaster boxes of Panini Diamond Kings from Target for $19.99 each. While I didn’t pull any autograph or memorabilia cards, I was pleased with the overall results.
As you can see from the pictures, the same seven parallel/insert types were represented in each box. I don’t know if that was coincidence or not, but there’s enough variety there even if this is the typical break.
I love the variety that Diamond Kings provides the collector. There are players from multiple eras. There are color and black & white illustrations. There are framed cards, minis, horizontal and vertical layouts, bright colors where needed and designs that pay homage to the past.
In my opinion, this is a fun break for $20 no matter what cards you pull. Luckily for me, I pulled that Ken Griffey Jr card pictured above. That instantly became one of my favorite all time cards!
Man love that Griffey! Need to find that one for the PC
Probably the most fun Panini baseball product to break since Hometown Heroes (I still miss that set).
