Kudos to the Warriors

Living in the bay area, I've noticed some great trends of teams committing to social networking.

Recently the Warriors have really been pushing checking-in on facebook, and deals for being one of the first people at the stadium have included meeting Jerry West:

and shooting free throws on the court. Hopefully they turn out better than DeSagna Diop's...

I was curious about what other teams around the country have been doing around social networking. I've still been collecting by the way, and have plenty of items to post. However, I'm rethinking some of the deals-related portions of the blog, especially since I've noticed that most of the deals are the same old products each week. I might make guides to selling your own mystery packs, the risks of busting a case, and information about important sports cards websites more in the future.

and completely unrelated but funny:

2006 Ultimate Collection Baseball Break Part 2: Jerseys

Thanks for your patience during a hectime time for me and my family, I should be back for good now.

Continuing the Ultimate Break, here are the two jersey cards, interestingly numbered 1/50, and 2/50 respectively. Both cards are FT.

I can't really stand the Kendry (although I guess his real name is Kendrys) Morales card being in a somewhat high-end product. How can there be a plain jersey card of an average player...
Hank Blalock has his fans around the blogosphere, and these patches are one of the reasons I tried this product. We'll see if Blalock is signed by a team this offseason.

And the Winner is... (2006 Ultimate Bonus Pack)

Beginning the box break, here is the bonus pack that promises a printing plate, Ken Griffey Jr. Buyback Auto, or a Legendary Materials card. I announced that I pulled a printing plate and gave readers a chance to win the card.

And the winner is...

Matt Pedersen! The first comment was also the best!

Cam Newton's Newest Fan plus a Quick Contest

Recently I pulled this Cam Newton auto.

Today I managed to sell it for $625. Life is good.

Cam Newton is officially one of my favorite players.

I also busted a box of 2006 Ultimate Baseball that I bought on Black Friday and I'll post it pack by pack.

I'm giving away the bonus pack's 1/1 printing plate, and all you need to do is guess what team the player depicted on the printing plate is on (the team on the plate, not his current team). To eliminate a couple of teams it's not the Giants or A's or I would have kept the plate. It's also not the Yankees or Red Sox so there's no need for lots of guesses for both of those teams.

If Gary Payton Gets into Blogging, We Might as Well Retire

If only I could make half as entertaining box breaks. He also bought packs for the kids in the store so kudos to The Glove.
