1 Box 2012-13 Limited
The Mrs. bought me a box and gave it to me for an early birthday present.... she is not into cards at all and cannot comprehend how I can spend so much money on pieces of cardboard with pictures on it lol but she is very understanding and never complains. So she gets me a box and unfortunately it was a complete dud...... terrible, but of course I don't want her to feel bad so I'm acting all excited "OMG Tyler Zeller, I can't believe I pulled a Tyler Zeller" but she bought it and I really did appreciate the box. Here are the pics.

TBarn I feel your pain and have often had to act excited myself at an anti-climatic box purchased by a loved one. Although the Laimbeer, while not too bad, what is up with that pose?

Currently collecting A-Rod, Jeter, Cano, Mauer and Trout. I tend to be a fast shipper, work across the street from our post office.

I have been lucky to this point. My girl loves opening packs/boxes with me and has bought some real good ones recently.

Problem is every time she gets me a box she opens a few packs and ALWAYS pulls the big hit. I have yet to pull a refractor because she gets them all. Opened a box of 93-94 Ultra she got me and one pack she gets the Scoring Kings MJ. I love that its in there but man, its tough to cover the disappiontment EVERY time she gets the hit.

Lol yeah, it is tough covering up the disappointment. I know my big box is coming soon though I have had to many duds to keep this streak up. As for the Laimbeer lol I don't know what is up with that. I could think of a thousand captions for that picture.

I love the look of the Zeller auto. The on card, and the clear plastic i think is very unique. Pulled an Isaiah Thomas one.

Maybe I should start making my girl open too. Anything to break this slump. Where do you get your old wax at? I would like to bust some good 90's stuff. I busted some later 90's stuff not to long ago, but I would like to find some early 90's. Like some E-motion, the first two finests. maybe some 95-96 stuff.

They are really cool looking. I'm planning on getting another box or two of the limited and if I pull one of the High Dollar players I think I am going to go after the set.

RE: 1 Box 2012-13 Limited
but the regular base aren't numbered...meaning the limited base aren't limited anymore. Try wrapping your head around that lol.

I collect Michael Jordan, Mitch Richmond, and Ohio State players (football and basketball) in OSU gear. I strongly prefer 90's-era cards and use newer cards primarily for trade bait!

Those clear autos are sweet. I grabbed the derrick Williams off the bay yesterday for my PC. I am lucky that my wife likes busting wax. More lucky that she likes to do my sorting too. I am with everyone else though in that she always pulls the best hits. She hit my strasburg auto, pujols auto redemption, and both my kobe hits.

I am typically a fast shipper and I ALWAYS use Delivery confirmation. Sometimes I forget to provide the number.

Seriously, whats with the women pulling all the dope stuff on us?

I usually grab early 90s stuff from BBCExchange.com or ebay. Basketball options are slim but i scored some good 88-89 Fleer boxes and 92-93 and 93-94 stuff. He gets new stuff in sporadically. More for older baseball collectors but beyond legit. Pulled my Scoring Kings from a box i picked up there.

I use ebay a lot too for finest and later 90s stuff.
