Box Break: 2016 Panini Diamond Kings Retail x2

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. 

Box 1: 

Box 2:

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!
