I have to admit I was pretty nervous breaking this 8 Box case of 2013-14 Panini Titanium Basketball as those who follow me know my luck was horrendous in Panini’s Gold Standard case break! But I am happy to say my faith in Panini has been restored and I have found some of my Mojo with my second solid break in a row!
The case started off as a Lakers box with Shaq, Nash, Gasol game used and Kobe, Kobe, Kobe….Did I mention Kobe?
The Kobe Autograph is going in my personal collection but I had to stare and admire that Kobe/Gasol Prime combo /25. Gasol’s piece looks like a piece of that sleeve he wears giving a really cool contrast to Kobe’s letter patch!
The Rookie cards in this series are intentionally hard to pull with the original sell sheet saying one per 8 box case….so initially I thought this was my RC hit:
But then when I was sorting through the pile of cards I noticed a few were turned around and as I flipped one over I saw this….
The Greek Freak staring back at me with a low serial number?!?! I am still torn what to do with this card as I have seen some crazy prices on Giannis’ Gold Refractor Prizm RC….but this one may end up at BGS and then into the PC.
So if you watch the video you may notice that I don’t even acknowledge the BIG HIT since it is turned backwards and I thought oh another duplicate base (got triplicates of many players) but upon sorting I flip this Bad Boy over….
I was stunned (and albeit slightly embarrassed I didn’t catch the card during the video break!) but a 1/1 card of one of the hottest players in the NBA right now. I wanted to add it to my PC….but alas you can’t keep everything….otherwise where will I get money for my next break?!?!?
So you can find the Unibrow along with other cards from my break on eBay under home_plate_1989
I will follow up in a week or so with the results after the sales are completed.
Until Then…..Keep on Busting!
