2007 Sweet Spot – My best tin yet!December 5, 2008 at 10:56 am | Posted in Box Breaks | 6 Comments
Hi kids! Now that the brouhaha of my recent nuptuals is over and FINALLY paid off, I decided to celebrate my return to collecting and blogging by busting another tin of my absolute favorite product to open. I’ve been thinking about this for a while now, and for several reasons, 2007 Sweet Spot Signatures is in my opinion one of the best products to bust of the last several years. The price of a tin is now down to $52.95 delivered to your door. For less than the price of most boxes out there, you get 2 serial #’d base cards, 2 jersey cards(some with patches), and 2 guaranteed on-card autos. All bang, no fluff. Just the way I like it. If someone just getting back into the hobby after a long break, or someone newly discovering it asked me what to bust, this would be my reccomendation.
If you’ve read this blog before, you know I haven’t had the best of luck so far with the 2 tins I’ve busted. My autographs thus far have been a bunch of nobodys. I think my luck may have turned with this tin though, so without further ado, the pulls.
This is the first swatch card I’ve gotten of someone I consider to be a star player. They aren’t worth much, but it’s always nice to pull a Jeter relic.
Here’s my rookie auto. I love the design and idea of these cards. UD has done away with them for 2008 in favor of a base card auto, and I think it’s a big mistake. Their aren’t a lot of big name rookies in this checklist, but I think the on-card auto with the helmet design is fantastic. Plus, I’m pretty sure I can find this one a good home .
This is far and away the best Sweet Spot auto I’ve pulled out of my 3 tins. Not only a tough to pull bat barrel, but the 2008 NLCS & World Series MVP, and a cool sig to boot. I don’t know what it is, but I love it when a player has a nice autograph.
I also managed to pull one of these stupid Buysner cards about 8 months after they were last worth something. That may be my only beef about this tin. It’s a funny card, but unfortunately it takes the place of a serial #’d base.
So that’s it for now. I think I did pretty well with this one, and I’m glad to be back to collecting and blogging. I’m going to start making time to post more regularly again. And I think one of my collecting goals for 2009 is going to be to bust an entire 20 tin case of Sweet Spot. Should be fun!
