This is a pure impulse buy. It is a repack with 100 baseball cards and 1 pack. I haven’t opened much baseball (or basketball) cards lately and I pretty much got it with just my reward points…
First the pack, a 2012 Panini Triple Play.
I like the art style and there is a bit of trivia, puzzles and a sticker in the pack. Here is a trivia question from one of the cards: Which pitchers had 200 K’s each year from 2008-11? Panini definitely did a great job hiding the fact they can’t use team logos and I get to add the Ichiro puzzle piece to my collection. I never heard of Triple Play before this but I give it a thumbs up as it is a fun pack of cards to open.
As expected the 100 baseball cards in the repack is mostly bulk. But there is a few cards that peaked my interest.
First off country music star Dan Seals sneaked his way in the repack.
This a Bobby Valentine card from the Mother’s Cookies set.
This is my favorite card. It is some sort of Astros versus Dodgers scratch off game. I wish Topps and Panini could do more stuff like this.
Here are a bunch of other interesting cards offered without comment.
It is just me or are there a lot less repacks out there nowadays? I wonder if the supply of bulk cards and bulk packs are finally drying up.
