Hey guys, it's that time of the year where I get tempted by some of Blowout and DA's Black Friday etc deals and buy some crap. Mostly retail stuff this year, record for hockey. There were a few things that intrigued me at first and a few things pretty cheap and affordable but here's what I ended up ordering.

Hockey - 2010/11 Victory Blaster - 11 packs/6 cards per

Hockey - 2009/10 Victory (Swedish Edition) Retail Box (I'm a sucker for international editions!) - 24 packs/6 cards per

Football - 2011 College Football Legends Hobby Box - 20 packs/5 cards per. 3 autos per box.

Football - 2008 Upper Deck Blister Box - 20 packs/18 cards per. No stats on hits but so far I've seen at least 2.

Hockey - 2012/13 Upper Deck Series 1 Blaster - 12 packs/5 cards per

Hockey - 2012/13 O-Pee-Chee Blaster - 14 packs/8 cards per

Basketball - 2008/09 Upper Deck Lineage Retail Box - 24 packs/6 cards per

Baseball - 2012 Bowman Chrome Blaster - 8 packs/3 cards per

Football - 2012 Panini Gridiron Blaster - 8 packs/10 cards per. Maybe a hit?

Hockey - 2002/03 O-Pee-Chee Blaster - 9 packs/9 cards per. 1 5x7 card per box

Basketball - (2) 2012/13 Panini Hoops Value Pack - 44 cards per

Hockey - 2009/10 Upper Deck Ice Trap Pack - 2 packs/5 cards per

Football - 2011 Panini Prestige Value Pack - 40 cards per

Hockey - 2011/12 Upper Deck Black Diamond Blister Pack - 3 packs/5 cards per

I was pretty close to trying out 2011/12 Panini Rookie Anthology Hockey but decided to go with the College Football Legends. I will open some of all this before Christmas. I have been working on the 2008 Upper Deck Football. Will get that up soon. Good luck to whatever you guys may be breaking as well!
