I really wanted a box of Topps UFC for a long time now and I just finally got my hands on one. I know this product for the price is hit or miss (what product nowadays isn’t) but I’m feeling kind of lucky today.
Hmm so my box was missing a guarantee memorabilia card but that is OK because I got Kimbo freakin’ Slice auto and it is on card.
Kimbo Slice is like the best hit you can pull in this product and it alone more than paid for the box. I just wonder what does the 303 inscription mean. Anyways, honestly Kimbo isn’t my favorite Ultimate Fighter contestant; Marcus “Big Baby” Jones is and guess what? I pulled a Marcus freakin’ Jones auto too.
In addition to that I pulled two more autos, Bruce Buffer, who my brother likes for some reason, and Martin Kampmann, whose name sound familiar.
The relic card I did pull is of Clay Guida, 89/99. They call Clay Guida the caveman for obvious reasons.
Counting parallels as base cards, the base set is about 60% (91/150) complete with 17 doubles. This is the a set I want to complete and I am missing: 5,6,7,8,10,12,15,19,22,23,26,28,30,35,36,38,40,47,48,49,51,53,54,55,60,63,68,
125,126,129,132,134,135,137,142,143,145,148. I also like to get doubles of 9,13,29,31,107, and 133 for my PC. That’s quite a lot.
I also got 16 (one in each pack) inserts. The bloodlines inserts are probably the best of the bunch.
So I beat the odds and got four autos and a relic. It definitely surpassed my expectations and this may be the best box of anything I opened so far. I still can’t believe I got both Kimbo Slice and Marcus Jones autos. I hope Kimbo Slice can actually win a fight to back up all the hype about him.
Finally I guess this is a shameless plug but I now blog for Inasectv (a sport social network and aggregator) where I will cover the top MMA, basketball and football stories. Follow me at my blog and my twitter accounts @inasectvMMA for MMA and @inasectvRay for basketball and football. If you’re wondering, I am still plan to update this blog Shot Not Taken regularly and you shouldn’t notice a difference. I have to leave you with a little sample of my work. Enjoy.
