2017 Black Friday Boxes #1: 2012 Panini Golden Age
It's hard to believe that it's already been over a month since I first got these. It seems like December went by so fast that I didn't have enough time to get to them. So, I guess before I start delving into the COMC pile, I should probably get these out of the way, lest they get pushed back even further in to the year.
I was going to do just two posts with the contents of two boxes in each post, but I think all just do one box per post, that way with less to write per post I should be able knock these out over the next four days... or at least four in five days.
I'll warn everyone in advance too, these boxes didn't turn out as well as I would've hoped, in fact they were pretty darn disappointing. Thankfully though, there was a saving grace that came out of the last box (that will be day 4, as these are being shown in the order that they were opened), that prevented this purchase from being a complete disaster. With that being said, you have my my apologies if these posts end up being a little more negative in tone than usual.
Up first was a box of the 2012 edition (one of the ones on the left of the photo). Since I already have a completed set, none of the base cards from this box are being shown. Also, since I don't have a list of which minis I have, I didn't end up including any of those either, so at least for this box (and the other 2012) you're just getting the inserts and the proverbial "hits".
Wasn't that exciting? If you answered yes, you'll probably enjoy tomorrow's box too. If you answered no, well... come back anyway, as your views and comments (if you're felling generous) will make these breaks a little less sucky.
Oh, and one other thing, since this post -- as well as the next three -- will contain many a duplicate, don't be shy if you see something you like that has been indicated as such. There are also plenty of base card duplicates as well, all of which are looking for a happy home.
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
