A Blasterful of 2015 Stadium Club: Worth (Basically) Every Penny
You know...sometimes taking the stupid way into something can be the best way in.
I tried spending some time collecting Stadium Club via JustCommons, but it didn't feel genuine. That's why I felt the only way to really be content with myself would be to purchase a blaster of the product, despite how unfairly priced the product was. I just had to. It was, to me, the only way.
Here now, are the highlights of said purchase. If you're a Cubs fan, you might like this blaster.
I pulled the jackpot.
I don't think I'd be able to replicate the expression I made when this fell out of the pack. I didn't think I'd ever own this card, and now it's in my scanner. That's kind of insane. One of the biggest rookie cards of the year, and it's mine all mine.
And then the insert in this pack...might be one of the best things I've pulled out of a pack in a long, long time...
Let me give that a moment to sink in.
That is a GOLD PARALLEL of a Contact Sheet insert of Anthony Rizzo...which is numbered to 50 COPIES...which is a REALLY NICE pull, especially considering it's of somebody I really, really enjoy. Very satisfied with this.
And our insert this pack is...
Either way, it's Rizzo.
Those were some very nice packs, and I got some GREAT cards that I needed, including a Kris Bryant rookie and that awesome Anthony Rizzo insert. Kind of takes the sting out of not pulling any Yankees.
