Breakin' Wax:2020 Playoff Football Blaster Box

Every box of 2020 Playoff football comes with 7 packs of 8 cards per pack. Each box also guarantees one autograph or memorabilia card and each box goes for $20. Don't be fooled by the flippers.

The base card set is built up of 300 cards. The design is okay, I would have rather preferred them leaving off the white squares to reveal more of the action photo.

At the time when I got this in December, I took this picture to point out it was the first card I had seen with the Washington Football Team logo.

Now back to the breakdown of the base set.

It is built up of veterans like Saquon above,
Legends like Steve Largent

And of course rookies like Zack Moss, who was also my best rookie card pull of the box.

There are plenty of parallels to be found as well in Playoff such as Goal Line, Kickoff, Red Zone, 1st Down /99, 2nd Down /49, 3rd Down /25, 4th Down /10, and Touchdown 1/1.
I found two kickoff parallels in my break.

Now onto my favorite part of Playoff, the inserts.

The inserts in Playoff standout with their complete chromed approach. As we all know, with anything Chromed there are parallels.

Playoff offers the following parallels for their inserts, Blue, Pink, Purple, Red, Silver, Gold /10, and Touchdown 1/1.
Behind The Numbers

Call To Arms

Thunder And Lightning

Rookie Wave

Rookie Wave Red (sweet Burrow version as well!)

Here are both side by side

So far, the Burrow parallel was the best find of the blaster. Now onto the hit.
Usually these boxes come with relics most of the time, but I lucked out and pulled an autograph of Dezmon Patmon who was a 6th round pick. He only played in one game with no catches.

Not a bad break, the Burrows definitely made the break worth it and finding a couple Giants PC cards helps as well.


  1. Not a bad box some PC Giants couple Burrows and an auto instead of Memorabilia so that's in my stack lol

  2. Judging by what I've seen on your blog, I'm guessing that this Joe kid had about 900 different rookie cards last year?

  3. Nice job getting the Burrows and auto. I chuckled when you typed "action photo" because many a Panini product shows the player all by his lonesome.

  4. Congratulations on pulling the Burrows. And that Largent is nice too.
