HOBBY TOPIC

Another post in our new series Hobby Topics. This is not so much a post for us to comment about or give our opinions on, this is your chance to let your voice be heard on a variety of topics in the hobby. We are leaving the floor open to you! So comment away! But please no language and keep your answer clean as we do have a younger following as well.

Today's Topic: Beckett.

Seems that many have dropped using the once popular price guide. Have you? If you have, how do you price your cards? And what does Beckett need to do to be on top again?

Let's hear your thoughts!

90's Rip Party: 1994-1995 Skybox Premium Basketball Series 2 1 Pack Break

I think I can call this a sequel to yesterday's post that featured Skybox Premium basketball 1993-1994 in the newest edition of 90's Rip Party.

In Skybox Premium basketball 1993-1994 Series 2 there were 12 cards per pack. The design was a little down from the previous years even though for most of the base cards they stuck with the rectangle strip down the side. This time that strip could be found on either side and only contained the player's name.

Skybox also added in some brightly colored subsets with BIG WORDS such as SKY SWATS AND SKY SLAMS. They also took the rookies from the product and gave them a colored background which is very easy to spot whether you have a rookie or not.

Now onto the break:




Pulling a Grant Hill rookie card from 1994-1995 was always exciting. For me it was not only because he was a great NBA player but because he came from Duke.

As you can see with this rookie, the photographic background has been colored helping you identify that it's a rookie.

So not only did I land a Grant Hill rookie, I pulled a pretty nice looking insert as well! Though the odds on these are only 1:2 packs lol.
Overall, I was pretty satisfied with the results from this break. Grant Hill rookie, an insert, and some semi-stars.

May Contest Week 3

WELCOME! This is the Third and final week of our May Contest. Now, compared to monthly contests in the past, this one is different. Instead of picking different winners daily, earning points, having the top three in points win prizes you only need to do this one entry where there will be one winner at the end of this week. This contest will run for three weeks and there will be a total of three winners. Once you have won for this month, you cannot win again as we want to spread the prize love around. Also, once you have won for the month, you will go into the WINNERS CIRCLE where you will not only be randomed to pick a prize for the month (all three names will be randomed and the person at the top of the list from the random picks their prize then so on), but will get a guaranteed spot in October's Monthly Contest. That is the ONLY way to be able to enter October's Contest. which has three prizes including a GRAND PRIZE from BCW Supplies.

This months prizes in the Prize Pot are:

1 SPOT INTO A FOOTBALL BREAK WITH JAMMIN JDCARDS
1 SPOT INTO A BASKETBALL BREAK WITH JAMMIN JDCARDS
And this lot from BCW Supplies:
Great prizes to be had!

WINNERS CIRCLE SO FAR FOR THE MONTH:
@gordonfan24ever
@brewman70a

Now onto how to be entered this week to be in the WINNERS CIRCLE for this months prizes and the WINNERS CIRCLE to be able to participate in October's Monthly Contest.
  1. Pick the winner of: Detroit at Boston
  2. Give me the TOTAL RUNS WITHOUT GOING OVER 
  3. As a tiebreaker, the total amount of STRIKEOUT by both STARTING PITCHERS
  4. Any other tiebreaker will be broken up by a random
  5. Entries are due by Sunday Night May 18th by 8:00 pm e.t.
