So, power went out yesterday so we went out to get some food to eat. Wanted Pizza, stopped at the Little Ceaser's in K-Mart to eat since it had an eating area. Well, convinced the wive to let me get something to pass the time, had her pick out a pack and pick me a pack. The packs guaranteed 14 rookies and 4 packs of cards. It also guaranteed that there would be rookies of Oden, Durant and Horford. Blah, I should have known better.

The guaranteed rookies weren't actually rookies, but rookie year cards. Each of our packs had the complete 2007-08 Topps Rookie Set (White Border) in them. That kind of upset me but when I thought about it, at least I could use the Durants for trade bait. Smile So, here's how my wife and I did.

My wife's packs of cards:


2006-07 UD Reserve
2006-07 Upper Deck
2007-08 Upper Deck
2007-08 Upper Deck First Edition

My packs of cards:


2006-07 UD Reserve
2007-08 Ultra SE Retail
2007-08 Upper Deck
2007-08 Upper Deck First Edition

Now, remember, my wife is the one that has all of the luck. Smile

My wife's "hits":


2006-07 UD Reserve Flight Team #MA Shawn Marion
2006-07 Upper Deck The LeBrons #6 LeBron James
2007-08 Upper Deck Legendary All-Stars #LA20 Maurice Cheeks
2007-08 Upper Deck First Edition #230 Gabe Pruitt RC
2007-08 Upper Deck First Edition Draft Notices #DN21 Jared Dudley

My "hits":


2007-08 Ultra SE Gold Medallion #242 Thaddeus Young L13
2007-08 Upper Deck #236 Michael Conley SP RC
2007-08 Upper Deck #238 Taurean Green SP RC
2007-08 Upper Deck First Edition Gold #218 Marco Belinelli

Yeah, I got the higher value hit, but overall, I'd rather have opened up hers. Smile All are for trade except for the Taurean, it's a set filler (also got two other set fillers).
I had seen those packs too...was skeptical, so thanks for confirming my skepticismSmile

lol. I didn't even think about it. Mind you, they had other variety packs, 3 packs of cards and one GU for $7.99. lol. What a rip. Well, one of them was ripped and when I looked inside, someone took a pack and left the GU in there. 2003-04 Black Diamond Game Jersey of Kenyon Martin. I ALMOST thought about swiping it, but didn't want bad karma. Smile
I actually saw a few of those in the bargain bin not too long ago at $3.99. Picked them up at that price. Got a Ray Allen and a dual Magette/Brand. Dont remember what the packs were but didnt think that was terrible for $4, not for $8.
Xstream, if you're going to break up the 2007-08 Topps rookie set white border, keep me in mind for the Jeff Green.

It's yours. Smile
Cool man. What other color variations were there for the rookie set? I've got the orange version and now (from you) the white version. Are there any other variations?

To my knowledge, there's the:

2007-08 Topps
2007-08 Topps Rookie Set Target (White)
2007-08 Topps Rookie Set Wal-Mart (Orange)
2007-08 Topps 50th Anniversary
2007-08 Topps First Edition
2007-08 Topps Chrome (and all of the refractors)
2007-08 Topps Gold
I got suckered in and bought one of those awhile back as well. Still decent value on the Durant though, worth picking one up in hopes of a hit in the enclosed packs.
Not bad for the price
