How can you win the Hall of Famer card we pulled? Instructions are in the video …
Great card! Consider this entry?
I like the idea of the repack and buyback stuff. Especially in products like this where you get a HOF auto. Very cool!! Gives folks a chance to own and collect older vintage cards that they may not have access to otherwise.
I like the concept, but seems a little overpriced at $150/box. Wouldn’t mind winning the Bunning Auto though, :)
Love the historic autos and it’s a cool Bunning, but really don’t like sketch cards in general. I know there’s a market for them, but I’d be really upset if, for my $100+ that was my second hit.
I like the Pastime concept of repackaging, especially when HOF autos are part of the mix. Count me in!
Boxes should be around $120. Check out the product information page and checklist on our website.
The Mays looked pretty cool, but I don’t see the value at that box price, especially considering the autograph is just a buy-back that is only identifiable as a buy-back by the case it’s in. Maybe that one was just a dud though, but I would rather just go buy a bunch of other HOFer autos for the same price.
A Bunning autograph isn’t going to justify anywhere near a $120-150 box. That kind of leaves the value to the sketch card. Obviously sketch cards are big in non-sports issues, but who knows about how they are going to do with sports cards. My feeling is that sketch card values can vary greatly based on the artist and subject. It will be interesting to follow the market activity in sketch cards that have started to show up in some recent sports releases.
I like the idea of a repackaged hobby box, but with that being said, i don’t foresee this as a great box. You can buy many other products, with better cards, for the same or less. The autograph idea is good, because no one really dislikes HOF autos, but the odds you will get the value or more than you spend is not great. The Bunning you pulled was nice, and so was the sketch (as long as it is 1/1) the product is nice, but until i see some great hits, I would not consider spending the money on it…….. More cards per box might change that though. Thank you guys for giving back to your fans! And everyone, go to Beckett’s Facebook page at 9:30 est (8:30 cst) for Chatter Up with Chris Olds, you can win awesome stuff!
That seems really pricey for what you pulled. I wouldn’t buy this product. Not even at half that price. I do collect Jim Bunning and Willie Mays though. I can’t imagine those two cards together being worth $150.
It’s hard to judge these sorts of things with one box. Personally, I’d be a little disappointed with opening that box at that price, but I have no clue how the points work either. Like any high end product, it’s just gambling. Probably a better return than going to a casino.
Take a look at some breaks online. People have been VERY satisfied with what they have pulled. Check out the player checklists for both cuts and cards. Also, check out the main hit of the product. I don’t like the term “sketch” card for the Pastime Portraits. If you see one of these in hand you will see that they are little pieces of art. No other product on the market has a deep HOF checklist like Enshrined Edition, limited case run
(Only 50 total!), and signed memorabilia redemptions that fall one per case. Not to mention the Pastime Portraits redemption program where you can redeem for signed memorabilia starting at 500 points!
One box can’t determine a whole product. People will probably be suprised at what that Mays would sell for. There are plenty of breaks and product information all over the Internet. Check them out and if anyone has any questions, comments, or complaints please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Looks pretty cool, but seems overpriced. I guess there is a good chance of pulling a nice HOF auto though.
Seems a bit pricey to me at $150 for 2 cards and some points. I would rather get more cards and no points for around $100. Did enjoy the auto of Bunning though.
I like the idea of being able to get a certified HOF autograph, but I’m not really into the sketch cards. They are beautiful works of art; just not what I collect. I prefered the Pastime Collection HOF Signed Card Edition from earlier this year where you got 5 HOF signed certified autos. I’d still love to add the Bunning auto to my collection though.
To clarify, the starting price is supposed to be $120.
Products like this are a hit and miss most of the time… and most of the time they are too overpriced. I try to stay away from these boxes and go for the more mainstream stuff. Luckily, in this case, I am a Phillies fan so if I pulled that Bunning, I would be delighted.
I’m not a huge fan of these products since i’d rather pick up the actual cards on the secondary market so I can get the card I want. But if you’re looking for a shot at a rare HOF auto that would be unaffordable otherwise, this is a decent way to go. The Mays sketch looks pretty nice.
I know some people do not like the whole re-packaged buy back releases but I love them, they give people a chance to pick up some older cards that they may not have thought about previously. The down side is that the product seems well over priced. There is the chance to pull some nice autographs/ cut signatures but in all honesty something like this would be more reasonable around $75-80 for a box.
a little pricey but is a hit or miss product. i think it would do better at maybe $100 a box, no real junk in this though
Not sure I would have been too happy with that box for $120…..
Looks like a pretty good idea. Especially if you pull a big time HOF Auto..
Its a bit pricey but the bunning still looks pretty nice!!!! Bunning is one of the unpopular HOF pitchers but he was really good espicially when he threw the perfect game
If it was only rookie cards of HOF I think it would be a good idea. But then the prices would be a hell of alot higher. I think for this $80 is good for one HOF auto, scetch card, and/or point card or another card.
Hit or miss product, price point seems a bit high for what you received in this box.
$120 is pretty steep for a Bunning autograph, sketch card, and points card. That being said, I thought the sketch card was really nicely done.
As with anything it’s going to be hit or miss but I like the product. Always nice to see products that highlights the past. A little pricey but still a nice product.
I’d like a shot at the Bunning. I wouldn’t buy this product for the simple reason that I do not activley purchase auto’s. Not knocking the idea, but @ $120 per pac, this is way to much hit and miss. Like that sketch card, but again, unless you are hitting a PC guy, this product is to expensive.
Nice product. Would be a nice way to add to my hank aaron :)
Price point is steep, but the sketch cards look sharp but this Phillies fans wants that Bunning card!
repackaged box is cool–different things to see but costly
I really love sketch cards, I can never afford to blow a heavy $ load on the sketches, but I think they are my favorite inclusion of any set.
anytime you can pull a guaranteed HOF autograph of any sport its a good break.
Can’t go wrong with HOF autos …….. seems like a fun bust !!! Would have been happy with the Mays or the Bunning ! Nice product
Not worth it but
I’d be still cool to have
I like this idea. I just wonder what the average value of the pulls is. I love seeing off brand companies try something new.
These products are aimed at the youtube box breakers & Case Breakers who sell slots. These are always fun to watch especially for people like me who cant spend 120-150 on a pack (I call them packs because 2 cards is a pack not a box).
With these boxes there is always some super hits so its the lottery tickets of Packs.
While I love the Bunning & would love to have it as a fan of the old timers :-) for a youtuber it would probably be a letdown.
The sketch cards are sketchy. Being 1/1s they are worth whatever 1 Person somewhere is willing to pay.
I have no problem with these repacks as long as people know what they are getting into & know like lottery tickets you wont win most of the time.
FROM MOD: Winner via random selection
Love the idea of this. The sketch cards are very cool and unique. A baseball card and an art portrait combined is valued for an art collector and sports memorabilia collector. Also with the hall of fame autograph you know your not going to get a couple average players autographs, you get a top notch autograph of a player who left their mark on baseball history.
I want to throw a hot dawg with mustard on that Bun-ning. GIVE IT TO ME!!!!
The bunning is cool, not sure about the prodcut. Seems awfully expensive for 3 cards.
I definitely like the sketch card, and the chance to pull a big hall of fame auto is definitely enticing. However, the price point seems a little high for what you get.
Looks like an ok product. Go Phillies!
Love the idea, but often the idea is better than the execution. Still, a HOF auto guaranteed is a good thing.
I like the idea of the HOF auto. The sketch card is cool too. The thing that would upset me is the “points” card. I would only be able to afford to buy one box/pack of this product (I’m sure most of my fellow collectors would be in the same boat), so the points would likely go unused since I couldn’t pull enough of the “points” to get another item. Rather than the points, why not a graded card from a 70′s or earlier HOFer? I would be MUCH more interested in this product at the $120 price point if it were not for the “points”.
BTW, my wife would be thrilled with the Bunning auto for her Phillies collection.
I would be honored to win this
Winning isn’t everything but this sure would be nice!
Set is ok in my opinion. I like the classy design. The best part is the HOF auto. The sketch cards (a.k.a. Pastime Portraits) One HOF auto, one sketch card, and one points card is good for a $120 box. The points idea from Pastime is bad. They are just trying to make more money with the points. Don’t waste your money re-opening this set or buying points cards. Despite this I like the design of the set. The HOF auto gives it the retro feel and the sketch cards give it the new feel.
P.S. Thanks Beckett for the giveaway. The best of luck to everyone.
