Each card is serially numbered. The base set is /1849. Collector’s will either need to open a lot of boxes or do lots of buying/trading to complete a base set of these. The draw with this product is the rookie autographs (John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins), the chance at autographs and relics of stars such as Griffin, Kobe, Rose etc… and of course the HRX video cards. This product also includes several retired legends such as Patrick Ewing, Scottie Pippen, Hakeem Olajuwon, John Stockton, Karl Malone, among others. Here’s what we opened:
Base cards /1489 (16): Gerald Henderson, Carlos Boozer, Paul Pierce, Chris Paul, Paul Millsap, Mehmet Okur, Carmelo Anthony, Pau Gasol, Jameer Nelson, Gilbert Arenas, Danny Granger, Rodney Stuckey, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Richard Jefferson, Aaron Brooks
First, want to applaud the design on the rookie autographs. They look sharp and having on-card signatures makes them appealing. While our box didn’t contain the most highly sought after rookies (John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Evan Turner, etc..) we did pull two solid rookies, one of which starts on a playoff team that looks like it could make a deep run this year (Fields).
Pulling even a base card of a superstar such as Lebron, Kobe, Durant, etc… would have been nice, but with a base set of 150 cards and the box containing only 16, this can’t be expected out of an average box.
While the big hits in this product provide an exciting pack-busting experience, the typical box won’t deliver an adequate return.
Several boxes on the way for the next several editions of Wednesday Wax, some of which are older breaks that should provide some interesting pulls:
1999-00 Fleer Force
One of my favorite products back in the day. Forcefield rookie parallels are #’d to 100 and the chance at insert parallels is what prompted picking up this box.
2000-01 Topps Reserve
8×10 canvas autograph in each box. Chance at autographs of Shaq and Magic. A longshot, sure, but a chance nonetheless. Some other potential autographs include Jermaine O’Neal, Antawn Jamison, Baron Davis, Shawn Marion, Elton Brand, and Andre Miller. There’s also a PSA graded rookie card in each box.
2010-11 Panini Totally Certified
6 ‘hits’ per box, generally two autographs and four memorabilia cards per box. Each card is serially numbered.
