Full Version: The adventures of a Contenders Box Break

Well, after working all night and being completely wiped out, my neighbor wakes me up after an invigorating 40 minutes of sleep. Seems UPS left a note with him that I have a package I need to pick up at their office. I'm thinking, "well I know it's my box of Contenders, but why did they leave a message with my neighbor?" So I get back up and head down there to pick my package up. Lo and behold, I'm informed "it's out for delivery." I inform the guy that I've just worked almost 15 hours, and could he possibly find out which driver has my package. He radios around for 35 minutes and finally finds the driver, BUT, he's on lunch! I calmly explain that I really don't wish to be woke up again when he does deliver it, and ask if I could meet him where he's having his lunch? He sounded kinda iffy, but finally agreed. So now, I'm off to one of 3 local Taco Bell's (he just happened to be at the one furthest away from my current location.) I finally meet up with the guy, apologizing for interrupting his "me time", and alas, I'm on my way back home, Contenders box in tow. This whole process took a little over 2 hours (that's 2 hours I could have been dreaming about pulling a Bush RC from the box!) Anyway, I got gome and started ripping packs. Here are the results with the "consolation prizes" listed first.

Tye Hill/Dominique Byrd 695/1000

REGGIE FRIGGIN' BUSH!!! (MAJOR MOJO!! So I need not explain how that felt)

Pack #24

Will Blackmon (Could have been a better 5th bonus auto, but look above one more time and ask if I care!)

The lack of sleep as it turns out, was worth it. And yes, I'll take actually pulling the card over losing 2 hours sleep dreaming that I pulled the card, any day of the week! The only downside....these things do not scan worth a crap with that foil front. But hey, I got the Bush tongue.gif

I've heard that too. Before this, the best card I'd personally witnessed anyone pulling was a Colston RC
