OK, so I was looking for an Anthony Davis Prestige RC.

I was in my local Target today and saw an open box of Prestige ... with 13 of the 24 packs left.

They were upside down, sideways, obviously shuffled through — maybe even pack searched for the jersey cards, who knows? — and my instinct was telling me to stay away.

Still, when have I ever been smart enough to listen to my gut?

Ninth pack ...

Score! Got what I was looking for. Thanks for reading.

Oh, wait a minute. I think I forgot one ...

Eighth pack ...

BLAMMO!

Yes, out of 13 random most likely pack-searched packs.

Eat it, pack searchers!
Awesome bro! Congrats!

Thank you, I'm still in shock ... easily the best basketball card I've ever pulled from retail. I pulled an MJ jersey out of 2006-07 UD basketball once, but that's still not even close.

Especially since it was a very unattractive looking group of packs left in the box.

Oh well, never judge a pack of cards by its wrapper, I guess. LOL
Wow, major congrats.! You got what you wanted and then more than you could've dreamed for. One time when it payed off for not listening to your gut instincts, haha!
Nice card but I think I like my Kobe Bryant auto to /25. out of a 2009/10 Rookies and Stars blaster.

Thanks very much, yeah, it was crazy ... I actually pulled the auto first and then the base RC in the next pack. Was delirious at that point.

I also pulled the All-Star cards of Chris Paul and Blake Griffin ... they're really nice, high-gloss, I was stoked with the whole bust.

Well, that's why I put a question mark next to it. LOL

Scan or it didn't happen, buddy. You know the rules. Unibrow says bring it!
Congrats... I like how they changed the background design compared to the non-auto & the auto card... makes it more interesting, than having the same card...

I never buy retail, especially from retail outlets (walmart, walgreens, traget.. ect)... most places in San Diego do not have much basketball or none at all... & when they do, they've been dropped (box has damage), opened & searched, packs stolen.. ect... the Navy Exchange (NEX) stopped selling sports cards.. they used to have blaster packs, but haven't seen them since 2007/8...

Think the last time I was able to get good pulls from retail was when my local Thrifty's & Longs Drugs stores carried packs in the early 90's... most were cello packs.. which people sometimes called jumbos..

I am looking for 90's Cello packs.. any product...
Yeah, funny thing is, I almost didn't stop in at Target ... but then I remembered we needed batteries for the video games, so I guess while I was there ... LOL
Those Prestige packs must be upsetting for pack searchers. The thicker packs either have the card board piece or a jersey card. In this product though the money is in the autos, not the jersey cards. I think that this story is great and congrats on the hits.
way to go! that is impressive.
