Back in April, we brought some true innovation to the blogging community. The first ever (to our knowledge) 3D box break was met with much little fanfare. Well, you saw our video, or maybe it made you motion sick and you turned it off. Either way, it’s now time for the inevitably delayed review.
How many of you out there played Little League baseball? How about High School baseball. AYSO Soccer? Any sort of team sport? If so, then you may have received your own trading card. Or at least dreamed of having one.
Most of us have seen those trading cards. They’re flimsy, boring, and the same thing [...]
Ginter! Gint-A-Cuffs! Fighting! Ripping! Ripping Packs! Packs of Ginter!
Slow on the draw as usual getting our video and review up for everyone to enjoy and/or summarily ignore. Then to make matters worse, we forgot to shoot our card close-ups! Shoddy craftsmanship. Just you wait. As soon as blogging becomes our full-time [...]
We did it for series 1, so you know we had to do it for series 2. 5 whole cases of the stuff. That’s a lot of wrappers, a lot of cards, and a lot of work. Something tells me 2 will be our limit going forward.
Let’s dispense with the pleasantries, shall we? Everyone [...]
Back in March, I did something I rarely do. I posted a preview for an upcoming product. While this blog comments on hobby news here and there, it’s usually in a editorial/commentary fashion rather than a straight-up news format. What made it even more unusual was that it was for a basketball product. I’ve flirted [...]
You’ve waited long enough, but before we start with the scans and everything, I want to let you all know about some technical difficulties we had streaming the break.
Evidently, ustream has recently instituted a cap on live broadcast recording time. So, the video you see below is only about half of the full break. [...]
Phew! Who knew baseball cards could be so much work! Still, even after opening five Jumbo cases for our business venture, you won’t hear either of us complaining (well, maybe after 16 hours straight of back-breaking sorting). You’ve seen a little taste of what to expect on our video from a few days ago, and [...]
Okay, let’s see if I remember how to do this whole “reviewing” thing. The last time I personally reviewed a baseball product was last December. I’ve done other Panini reviews since, but since I don’t think they like us anymore it’s back to the things we buy.
In this particular instance, I’m referring to our [...]
Hey everybody! Happy Cinco de Mayo! This post has absolutely nothing to do with that.
I’m here with the review of our box of 2010-11 Panini Classics Basketball. The box once again comes courtesy of the one and only Tracy Hackler over at Panini America. We’d be remissed if we didn’t thank him. And as [...]
As you may or may not have seen, we busted a box of Panini’s new high-ish end basketball offering on video a couple of days ago. We promised both a review and a contest, so here’s both wrapped up into one lovely little McDonald’s apple pie box package!
