Random WalMart...BLASTER!
I found a blaster of Pinnacle a the Dub and nabbed it for $14.99 expecting to be sad I did. I don't know, you tell me.

Not bad, let's see if I get a parallel...

Meh. But there's a thick pack in there...hope it's not a decoy...

It's not! A JSY in a blaster is always good news. Can't get any better from here, right?

...not sure, is this good?

So case in point. Pinnacle is believed to be a garbage product just like Zenith and you did pretty damn well here! It's just so random.

RE: Random WalMart...BLASTER!
I actually like Pinnacle. The base set leaves a ton to be desired as far as design but other then that it's a decent product.

And you're wrong. Pinnacle is a lower end product, Zenith is mid-level. When Pinnacle comes out the price point it about $60. What was the original price of Zenith? $110? I got my $60 box greatly discounted and was still sorely disappointed. I'm not a fan of Pinnacle but I've never had a break I was actually disappointed with.

You're comparing apples and oranges.
I also don't know how following wing me around telling me I should be happy with a terrible Zenith hobby break because my retail Pinnacle break was decent does any good. I say Zenith sucks. Not Panini. Zenith. The only good Zenith breaks I've seen had something really nice in the DTT. If the DTT is a dud, the box is a dud. I can't see how saying I think people should stay away from a product whose breaks all depend solely on one card warrants this.

The product sucks. Panini failed hard on that one. That's all there is to it. What I pulled from a blaster of Pinnacle has zero to do with any of this.

Pinnacle is not low end, it's definitely middle of the road. Hobby boxes started out around $75 and up when it first came out. Low end is Victory and Score.

When Zenith can out it was $110. $75 and $110 are not the same level.
By the way, thanks for turning this into a second argument. I really appreciate that.

Randi, you may as well close this thread and delete it. I just wanted to show off a break but someone decided to have the same argument in two places so this is basically dead now.

Artist Proof! Seems like it would be a decent hit..not sure though. I'd be satisfied with that break.

Nice stuff bro, I always liked the Pinnacle blasters. I mean heck, even if you paid full price they were still 19.99 for a guarenteed hit! And you definitely killed the odds!

RE: Random WalMart...BLASTER!
congrats!

FYI as swjrp10 mentions you are guaranteed a hit. I have always gotten only jerseys from that year's blaster (I bought a case once at a good price) however apparently you can go an auto instead.

Wanted:

Sidney Crosby, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
