Yes, I enjoy shopping for cards around Black Friday and holiday season. Plenty of occasions to celebrate – Thanksgiving, birthdays, Christmas, New Year’s, etc. Already ordered some treats online at Dave and Adam’s Card World. My local card shop, DJ’s Sports Cards, had its Black Friday sale this morning. Great deals on just about everything in the store, got some singles and a couple of hobby boxes, so of course I got more than I had planned. 🙂 DJ had grab bags for the first 50 customers buying $10 or more, and mine included an Edgar Martinez auto #’d /75! Also, there were special “Panini Black Friday packs” included with various hobby boxes, which were supposed to include various base-type, autos, memorabilia, #’d cards, etc. I opened up the 5 packs (2 cards each) and was pleasantly surprised! Some neat stuff, all labeled as “Panini Black Friday 2016” on the back.
- Base: Eli Manning, Joe Flacco, Jay Cutler, Luke Kuechly, RG3
- Insert?: OBJ
- RC: DeAndre Washington Oakland Raiders RC #’d /499
- Parallels: Antonio Brown #’d /50 on thick stock, Keenan Allen refractor #’d /10
- Memorabilia: Allen Robinson Salute to Service GU(?) camo.
Pretty cool! Looking forward to opening those boxes I got. 🙂
PS Of course when I looked online later in the weekend, these cards are just the tip of the iceberg. The fancier Panini Black Friday cards I’ve seen out there are pretty awesome.
