PACK BREAK: 2016 Panini Prizm Football Hanger Pack

Living in Fort Worth, it’s difficult to turn on any kind of media without hearing about the Dallas Cowboys. I despised them for so long, but I admit that I’ve become interested enough that I want to see them win (it’s always better for the local economy). That, combined with the “never leave the last one on the shelf” philosophy many of us have, led to me picking up one of these this evening at a local Target.


Each one comes with three four-card packs and a three-card pack of Red, White and Blue Prizm cards.  If you read the blog often, you probably know that I’m a fan of packs that offer guaranteed exclusive parallels.  Continue reading

Whenever I am somewhere out of my normal area and come across a Target or Walmart, I try to stop in if time allows. I’m not going to find many discounted blasters in my local area that I’m interested in, because I’ve already bought them. A little over a week ago I was on the other side of Fort Worth and stopped in a Target. I was thrilled to find a 2015-16 Upper Deck Hockey Series 2 blaster. I wasn’t passing it up at $12.99.

Yesterday afternoon we were out running errands and one of the stops on the agenda was Target.  The boxes of junk wax I opened this weekend (check our Twitter feed) had me in the mood to open a little more.  I saw a box that I had in the basket, but I put it back and didn’t grab it.

After dinner, I decided that I was going to go back and get it.  In a way I was hoping it wouldn’t even be there anymore, but there is was…

After work yesterday I stopped by Duane’s Sports Cards to pick up supplies.  As you should know by now, I find it difficult to buy just supplies.  I’m not into baseball, but I know that the Allen & Ginter set is popular, so I bought a couple of packs.
