From an overall enjoyment factor – breaking a case 2013-14 Panini Titanium Basketball hit the target spot-on. I enjoyed the mixture of of recent historical NBA references like the game used Tracy McGrady Patch….to the Hall of Fame and Playground Legend homage to “The Hawk” Connie Hawkins.
The 8 Box Case did well in the sales break-down below (assuming one were to sell every card on the week of release) and candidly I was a bit shocked as some cards sold for much lower than I would have anticipated.

|Box||Avg Price||Sold||Profit/Loss||Key Hits|
|1||$90||$38||-$52||Kobe Bryant GU $8, Shaquille O’Neal GU $17, Michael Carter-Williams GU $10|

|7||$90||$105||$15||Anthony Davis 1/1 $80|
|8||$90||$25||-$65||Connie Hawkins $10|
I think the Larry Johnson Auto at $12 was a steal! (*Which is why I am happy I held on to mine for my personal collection….Grandmama in a Knicks Jersey?!?! Bonus!)
The Game Used Swatches were significant and designed really well…and there were some cool patches included in the 8 boxes too – Still trying to ID where Pau’s came from!
My only regret was how low my Anthony Davis 1/1 sold for….I started it out at $49.95 on eBay to see if I could garner attention…and while it did attract over 20+ watchers….the bidding war never emerged that I expected. For under $100 I would have preferred to keep that card for myself….next time I will start the bidding higher! <sigh> farewell my friend it was nice to have you momentarily.
Though the one true Rookie card I did pull from my case was garnering some heavy sales figures based on three sales of comparable cards….I am glad stayed it my PC!
