I couldn't wait for my "complete the set" prize box from presspass so I pulled the trigger on 2 boxes of showcase. How did I do?

Masterpiece Dual of Kyle Bush (2cl firesuit and 3cl. sheetmetal) #21/99

Prized pieces Ink of The King Richard Petty ( swatch is dual stitched down the center) #10/25 ,Personally I believe he has the best autograph of any sports personality,you can read his entire name not just some scribble.

Box 2

Base cards #499 of Ned Jarrett, Lee Petty, Joe Gibbs racing, Kasey Kahne, Mark Martin, Matt Kenseth , elite exhibits of Kurt Bush and Kasey Kahne.

so what do you guys think? personally I am beginning to like busting NASCAR more than BaseBall ( I got a Box of Triple Threads in a trade and even though it had a sick 3 cl. patch x3 ) both the hits were scrub players value on the box is probably $50 and I gave up over $200 worth of cards)

I can't wait for my Prize Pack of Showcase to show up if it comes in today I will post it tonight

I don't think you will ever get tired of breaking Nascar boxes. I use to collect all sports but got sick of always getting no name players as my hits. You have a way bigger chance of scoring a top driver since there are way fewer drivers than players in any sport. Those were some sweet boxes!!!! Congrats
Also i believe the Jr auto will be #'d /10 or /25

Great breaks! Did you forget to list a card from box 1 though? Congrats on some sweet pulls!
Also, I may be biased but I think there is another sports personality with the greatest signature. The King's is really nice, but I prefer this AU:

I have 4 items with his AU and all are completely readable and look great on each item. Smile

you are definitely right Ozzie is another sweet sig. what I like about the Wiz is how he dots the "i" above and below . Ii met ozzie several times .I got him to sign a promo poster the Padres gave way the year before they traded him because he didn't have one , he had the printing plate from it but not the poster I gave him 10 or 15 of them and he signed one for me ( perk of working security on the field for the padres) when he came to town working for fox during the 98 world series he remembered me and signed a ball on the sweet spot and threw it to me as he was headed to the press box , I didn't even ask for it he called my by name and said " this will go great with that poster" definitely a class ACT. by the way my showcase box from presspass didn't show up today maybe tomorrow but I did score a JJ masterpieces Dual fire suit and sheet metal while I was down in salem going to load up the breaks in photobuckett and will include that one,

GREAT STORY, Shawn!!! I have never been fortunate enough to meet him. As an STL fan in NC, and the fact that he retired the same year I graduated from HS, I never even got to see him play in person. I did get to go to the HOF to see his plaque, but it was 3 yrs. after his induction.
Congrats on the JJ Dual. I can't wait to see it.
