Next to last PACK STACK update

Thanks to everyone that jumped in for signups.  They are now closed.  In this post and the one that follows in about a week will be the final addition to our horde.

This Canadian gem was an assisted buy from my friend to the North. Thank you DC!
 This box is small but will pack a big punch
 A nice vintage retail find for the hoops pile
 These kits were sold through book fairs and flyers. The packs inside seem to be very basic but I took a shot

That's it for today! One more post to go with some major additions and then breaking on the 25th! MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Farewell from a friend

I've had a lot of fun blogging about cards. I've also had some great times bombing dimeboxadonia and warring with great folks such as Gavin, Jedi Jeff, Tony, and many others along the way. Who could forget my epic torment of Bob Walk?  But perhaps one of my favorite people to craft packages for was P Town Tom.  There have been Rancors, Wampas, and many other fun things over the years.  Just this week Tom wrote me a very nice farewell letter and also sent along an epic contribution to my going away party.  I was truly blown away. I will let the pictures do the talking and just say thank you very much to you Tom!

Let's get the updates up to date

Since I've decided to move my break up to Christmas day I decided I better speed up showing the unrevealed boxes for the break so here are some more for the pile

 The TKO version of Ringside boxing is the smaller little brother of the KO box I showed earlier. No guaranteed hits here
 Hoping for something great from Sig Wrestling
 Hello Ladies
 I dig AHS and this is one of two boxes featuring American Horror Story that will appear
Just a for fun addition with Adrenaline. Dirt cheap too!

Thanks for stopping by.  If you would like to claim teams for my big break I will be posting that up on Friday night-First come first served!

AREA 40 update time!

I've finally gotten caught up on getting prize mail out for Jeff, AJ, and SCC.  Now a winner for my last post. Drum roll please...congrats to the owner of a baseball mystery cube TONY L.   I will get it out to you next time I hit the PO.

But for now here are some new boxes for the May break...

 3 boxes of this wasnt cheap but the first TNA is worth the shot
 Maybe an early printing plate from epix will fall out of here for the group!
 Can't pass some neat hockey up
 This T206 should be an awesome break!
 Hoping for something amazing from TENacious!
Finally a little blaster that could be huge!

Thanks for following along! Comment this week to be entered for a cube of basketball ball from my collection.  GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!
