1997 Pinnacle Inscriptions box break!! - dow714 - 06-17-2012 07:24 PM

Ok so i posted a thread about this box a week or so ago. Sorry it took so long to get it posted on here. I had my bachelor party all weekend and have been pretty busy. Anyhow as some of you might remember i wasnt sure if it was a sealed hobby box or just a simple pack/box. The mail lady came to the door and to my delight she had a big box for me.

This is what i got when i opened the pacakage.
A box the size of two shoe boxes stacked on one another.
24 packs per box
Challenge Collection 1 in 7 packs
Artist Proof 1 in 35 packs
V2 1 in 11 packs
Inscriptions Autograph 1 in 23 packs

And inside the box i found these! 24 individually sealed boxes! <- Sweet

Inside each individually sealed boxes i found a sealed clear pack of 3 cards.

My first pack yielded me this very cool Barry Sanders Inscriptions V2 insert which has a plastic film which says "peel off" on it. I didnt peel off lol but one edge has peeled a tiny bit as you can see in the scan.

My next few packs got me some base cards. Pack #5 yielded this Barry Sanders Incriptions Challenge Collection insert.

Finally pack #10 got me auto. Needless to say i was dissapointed. Jeff Hostetler wasnt who i had in mind.

So at this point i was pretty bummed and was debating on if i should just sell the other 14 packs on ebay. But im the type of person who cant stand not seeing whats in each pack so i kept on opening. Pack #14 gave me this Troy Aikman Inscriptions Artists Proofs insert Smile yay i beat the odds 1 in 35 packs

Well guys i had a good mail day too i would like to post about but i am getting married this saturday so im not going to be on the boards much for the next two weeks. Hope you enjoyed this break as much as i did. I can honestly say i had more fun opening this box of cards then i have ever had opening any other boxes.

I think I saw a couple of Marino boxes in the second scan. I would be interested in one if you still have them...

And I would be interested in the Young boxes if they are still around. Congrats on the great pulls, especially the Young.
