    Come on Chris…. whats wrong with Kirt Manwaring??? the guy won a gold glove once upon a time and has a WS ring!

    Have been away from the hobby for quite a while and am enjoying getting back into it, appreciate the box busting videos as am overseas and is difficult to see how a box plays out. Cant just walk into a shop and try a couple packs, so seeing you guys bust them gives a bit of an idea of what to expect before spending loads to have a box shipped abroad.

    thanks again…

    Did you really put that Kevin Maas in a card sleeve? You doubled its value!

    Kevin Maas is a golden god.

    Don: I only do them because a LOT of people tell me they like them. They also get just as many — if not more — views than some of the brand-new stuff.

    The two different designs was actually because the cards in packs were reprints of team set cards from that year. CMC made cards only of Triple-A players, while ProCards made cards of lower leagues. That’s why the AAA cards from packs have the CMC design from that year, while A and AA players have the ProCards design.

    Paul: yep, though it is all under the CMC name as far as packaging.

    Backup: um, no.
