Retail Box Break: 2015 Panini Contenders Baseball

Last night I posted my other blaster box break from yesterday (2016 Topps WWE Road To Wrestlemania) and while I was happy with that blaster, I was ecstatic to open this one as I’ve been putting off purchasing one of these for a while.

There’s not too much out there in the way of college baseball and I’m impressed (so far) with how much attention Panini has given college baseball now that they have the CLC license.

As you can see from the picture, this blaster guaranteed two autographs.  Not too shabby for a $20 blaster box from Target.  For me though, much of the fun that comes from opening these types of products is the retro cards (i.e. the Mark McGwire in the picture below featuring him in his USC uniform).

Coicidentally, both of my autographs (Mark Mathias and Triston McKenzie) are players currently in the Indians farm system and both actually had excellent years in 2015 for the Mahoning Valley Scrappers.

Note: After researching these blaster boxes a little bit more once I got home I realized I actually overpaid.  Do a quick eBay search and you’ll find these for less than $18 (shipping included) per box.  That’s a steal if you ask me!
