2013 Fan Expo Canada Sports Review

Always intrigued with Fan Expo Canada, this year they made it a little harder to pass up by adding a Sports Show. Over twenty plus sports guests signing and providing photo ops along with vendors and sports companies this was looking like it was going to challenge the semi-annual Sport Card Expo.
The cost to get into the show was only $10 which is a decent price and well received from others I spoke with. Panini and Upper Deck both had booths setup at the show. Vendors were spread out among many rows with corporate booths and setups in between.
Upper Deck had a front and center area where they were taking photos for personalized trading cards of fans at the show. They had a mini Stanley Cup and only Toronto Maple Leafs jerseys to put on in the photo. If you came with your own jersey on or just wanted a card in our street cloths than this worked out well. However if you were looking at another hockey team to put a jersey on of you were out of luck. If this setup comes to the Expo in November I hope they bring a few other teams to use in the photos.
They also handed out post cards of Nail Yakupov and Wayne Gretzky. Both are over sized cards but have blank backs to them, would have been great to have something on the back of the cards. No pack wrapper redemption's either for Upper Deck, their booth seemed to focus on the make your own card than anything else. Very cool concept but should have combined it with a wrapper redemption or more for collectors.

Frameworth had a nice setup. Their items are always nice, if just browsing through the pictures or picking one out they have the best captured photography to display for a collector.
Panini had a big setup at the show. Displaying some of the Prime hockey hits pulled from recent breaks as well as some redemption items to be had during the weekends wrapper redemption program. They had staff on hand to answer any questions and help with the redemption breaks.
I participated in the wrapper redemption which I purchased a box of Rookie Anthology to receive 10 redemption packs. Both the Rookie Anthology box and my wrapper redemption packs did very well. Came away with 6 hits from the Anthology box and the redemption packs gave me a set of the Franchise Greats, 3 Lava Flow cards, some of the Top Hot Rookies and a Grigorenko relic.
I also met Karvin Cheung from Panini for the first time. He is the Director of product development (NHL/NBA) at Panini. Really nice guy to chat about the hobby with and knows his stuff about anything Panini for hockey and basketball. Panini has always had a great representation at any show recently and they continue to provide the best to collectors.

One of the cool things I saw at the show was Hulk Hogan step up to his autograph area and show off his "pythons" to the crowd. The crowd loved it and was cool to see a guy you use to watch on TV or at a WWF (at the time) event. Was close enough to get a snap shot of him, dude is still really ripped!
Overall I think the show could have been better in the sense of a card collectors perspective. It had some great companies spread out across the rows with some unique and cool items but I find it lacked in the card collecting area. Now this was a sports show so I didn't expect it to be rows of card dealers, but I did expect it to have more than it did. I was a little disappointed with a couple of tables that seemed to not have any items for sale on their tables and were bare. A couple of other tables I felt like I was at a flea market and not a sports show. This I hope changes for the next show in 2014. In the end it was ok in the books of a sports show. I didn't pick up anything other than the 1 box of Anthology for the redemption's but again didn't intend to pick up anything else unless something stood out. Always first year shows have some improvements to be had and things to consider for the next show and I'm sure next year will be better and I will again attend. When it comes back in 2014 I'll be checking out the entire FanExpo and not just the sports side to experience the entire show as a whole.

Product Review: 2013 Panini Pinnacle Baseball Hobby Box

Last Wednesday Panini released a new but old baseball card line in Pinnacle. Yes the once lost brand that Score held back in the 90's is now under Panini and is back with fury.
When this was first announced we were all over it. Loving the previous brand in the 90's, you just knew that Panini would give it some new life and bring the best to another baseball line.
Each Hobby box will have 24 packs with 8 cards per pack, with each pack containing at least 1 insert along with 1 Rookie. You will find 2 Autographs per box as well, increasing the value of this low-mid tier product.

In regards to the base set, it is 150 cards deep with an additional 50 cards of 2013 Rookies. Parallels are also found for the base set which are the previously famous Museum Collection (1:8) and Artist's Proof (1:12) designs. Inserts play a major role in this brand with a total of 16 different themes to collect. Slugfest, Team Pinnacle, Behind the Numbers, Awaiting the Call, Swing for the Fences, Team 2020, Position Powers, Aces and Clear Vision are among some of the prevalent ones to pull. Some of the inserts date back to Score Select (Aces) and previous Pinnacle themed inserts (Team 2020).
An interesting insert in this product are Pete Rose The Hit King Die-cuts. These mark the different milestones within 5 cards of his 4192 hits. Will be interesting to see the secondary values on these cards as they are not found in every box from what we've heard so far.
One of the great looking and cool technology inserts found are Clear Vision. These span across Pitchers and Hitter to reflecting accomplishments at the plate and on the mound. Pitchers have Complete Game, Shutout, Win, No-Hitter and Perfect Game. While Hitters have (as you might have guessed it) Single, Double, Triple, Home Run and Cycle. They've done a good job adding in new content with the older inserts every already enjoyed.

Autographs are very deep with 74 current and past players along with 26 rookies from the 2013 season. these seem to all be sticker autographs and both have the same design to them. With pulling 2 per box it is just more added value that Panini is bringing to the collectors.

Hobby Boxes will be around the $75 range and with the amount of value you receive, boxes could climb up next week or so. Like most products in this range they typically don't raise up too much but could fluctuate with the demand of the Autographs or some of the harder to find parallels and inserts.

Once we picked up our boxes we couldn't wait to rip into them, here is what we pulled:

Base Cards: 160 (0 doubles)
Base Card Museum Collection: 3 - Troy Tulowitzki, Jason Kipnis, Jackie Bradley Jr.
Base Card Artist Proof: 1 - Starling Marte
Slugfest: 2 - Curtis Granderson, Edwin Encarnacion
Team Pinnacle: 2 - Thomas/Pujols, Cabrera/Brett
Swing for the Fences: 3 - Ryan Braun, Aramis Ramirez, Jose Bautista
Behind the Numbers: 1 - Mike Stanton
The Naturals: 1 - Joey Votto
Team 2020: 3 - Yu Darvish, Stephen Strasburg, Bylan Bundy
Awaiting the Call: 4 - Tim Raines, Edgar Martinez, Greg Maddux, Ivan Rodriguez
Pinnacle of Success: 3 - R.A. Dickey, Buster Posey, Albert Pujols
Position Powers: 2 - David Wright, Buster Posey
Clear Vision Single:3 - Aramis Ramirez, Ian Kinsler, B.J. Upton
Clear Vision Double: 1 - Paul Molitor
Pete Rose The Hit King: 1- HK2 Die-Cut
Aces: 1 - Gio Gonzalez
Autographs: 2 - Shelby Miller, Sean Marshall

Yet another reason why Panini should have a piece of the MLB license, products like this are great and fun to rip open. The Base cards are typical old-school Pinnacle with plain black designs and nothing too flashy. I don't have a problem with it and they look great and almost stealth-like. The Museum and Artist Proof parallel's are great and offer a little more to the set.
Inserts, Inserts and more Inserts! Man this is a loaded insert product. We pulled 27 inserts from this box, which is more than the expected 23. A lot of these use the Museum look to them which standout and a couple use the clear acetate technology.
Clear Vision are a great insert. They have a little bit more stock into them and use the acetate technology as well as a prizm look. Pretty cool cards and if not for so many in the Single set would go after one. We pulled a nice Molitor Double which the higher you go the harder it is to pull one out of the box.
When the Pete Rose Hit King card was pulled we didn't think anything of it but then realized that not all of them were Die-Cut and this was a parallel. Very nice cuts around the numbers and adds much more to the already popular cards with collectors.
For our autographs we were very happy with the Miller RC auto. Sean Marshall isn't bad either but was expecting that type of player to come out of the box. Most times you will get two of the same tier player auto out of a $75 box, so pulling the Miller was very good. Both are sticker autographs but we'll take anyone in a box for this value.
Overall this is a great buy, either as a single box you bust or through a Box Break. Lots of cards, every team is represented, and a 50 card rookie base to pull some nice ones out of. Inserts again are the key in this product and might overshadow the fact you also pull 2 autographs out of the box. We came away with 40 cards short of a complete set from 1 box so we might bust open anther one to see about completing it. And why not, we can build up our insert sets with the other box and have fun ripping into another one.

Product Review: 2013 PressPass FanFare NASCAR Hobby Box

Being a fan of NASCAR, I really have fallen in love with some of the products that Press Pass has come out within the last few years. This year's Ignite was a fun break and when we heard about FanFare we just had to give it a shot.
2013 FanFare brings you a Mid-range NASCAR product with a lot packed into the boxes. The Hobby product packaging consists of 8 packs with 5 cards per pack. The power behind this product is that each box delivers 4 Autographs and 4 Memorabilia cards!

Each of the Autographs and Memorabilia cards have parallels to collect along with some scarce Short Prints. Autographs come in a variety of serial numbers from /299 for the Young Guns down to 1/1 for some of the Veterans within the sport.
Memorabilia also has it's share of parallels to keep you hunting down some cool items. Fire Suits, Sheet Metal, Hats, Gloves, Shoes and even Rookie Tape are all found within different serial numbering of /199 down to 1/1.

The Base card set features 100 cards across the different NASCAR series's and include some Legends of the sport as well. Like all sets this one is loaded with parallels Holo Foil Die-Cuts, Silver Foil, and Alternate Photo variations. Some of the Photo Variations are short printed as well adding more value to the product.

Inserts are included but not the focus like other NASCAR products. Showtime, Fan Following and NASCAR Hall of Fame are the three included. The first 4 cards in the Fan Following insert set are short printed which could prove tough and maybe costly to finish the 15 card set.

As you can see this is a loaded product and very intriguing to those collecting NASCAR. I couldn't wait to bust open our box so here is how we did:

Base Cards: 16 (2 doubles)
Base Card Young Guns: 1 - Annabeth Barnes
Base Card Alt Photo SP: 1 - Brad Keselowski
Base Card Foil Die-Cut: 8 - Martin, Vickers, Reutimann, Long, Keselowski, Regan Smith, Ragan, Kahne
NASCAR Hall of Fame: 1 - Rusty Wallace
Showtime: 2 - Dale Earnhardt Jr, Kyle Busch
Fan Following: 8 - Jeff Gordon (SP), Kahne, Ambrose, Pastrana, Logano, Dillon, Edwards, Harvick
Fanfare Autos: 2 - Jeb Burton /125, James Buescher /125
Magnificent Materials Silver: 1 - Joey Logano Race Used Sheet Metal /199
Magnificent Materials Gold: 1 - Kyle Busch Race Used Sheet Metal /50
Magnificent Materials Signature Edition Silver: 1 - Aric Almirola Autograph Race Used Fire Suit Patch /99
Magnificent Materials Signature Edition Gold: 1 - Clint Bowyer Autograph Race Used Fire Suit /50
Magnificent Materials Blue: 1 - Justin Allgaier Race Used Glove & Shoe /50
Magnificent Materials Holo foil: 1 - Michael Waltrip Race Used Glove & Shoe /10

Very happy with this product. The Base cards are done nicely and the foil technology is great. They are on a thin stock so dinged corners could become a problem if not stored properly. We managed to find a Alternate Photo base card which turned out to be one of the short printed ones too of Brad Keselowski. The Die-cut parallels are very nice and have a holographic technology that really stands out. On the down side we pulled 2 doubles from the 16 base cards in the box. This is not great considering you only pull 16 base cards and that the set is 100 cards deep. Assortments like this shouldn't happen on this type of product.
The inserts are not too exciting but are typical for a NASCAR product. Again we found ourselves a short print with the Jeff Gordon Fan Following. The action shots of the cars on pit road are well done and the Fan Following also have some cool shots like the Gordon card signing autographs among a crowd of fans.

Lets get into the goodies shall we. Starting with the Autographs, we pulled Jeb Burton and James Buescher which aren't the stars you would love to get but both are serial numbered /125 and on-card autographs. Buescher coming up the ranks might be a good long term value, Burton hasn't hit the radar yet within the NASCAR series.
 Sheet Metal is very common within any NASCAR product and we pulled solid colored ones to boot. Kyle Busch is one of my favorite drivers which was a nice pull. Both are low serial numbers and have a nice design with foil lines throughout the cards.
 We were lucky to pull 2 Autographed Memorabilia cards in Bowyer and Almirola. Love the on-card autographs and Bowyer's takes up some great space on this card. His memorabilia is a solid color but feels like a patch of a sponsor. Almirola's patch is really nice and looks great with the different colors.
Saving the best for last? Well we had too, these are some of the best we've pulled and seen within NASCAR products. The 2 Dual Magnificent Materials we pulled are simply great and the pictures don't do the cards justice. First with the Allgaier, it's a Blue parallel version numbered to 50. the Race Used glove has black and white coloring and is a thick piece of material. the Shoe piece is just as thick and has the standout white with Red trim. the Waltrip card is similar to the Allgaier consisting of a Glove and Shoe relic. The Glove has 2 dark colors on a thick piece, while the shoe is straight black. This is a Holographic Silver type parallel that isn't really defined anywhere on the checklist or sell sheets. The extra value to this one is it is numbered /10.
Overall we did very well with our hits and cards out of this box. The Base card parallels were great and of course the Hits make the product what it is. We've seen a couple of boxes pulled and we had a second box which was just as good but with less Memorabilia flare in it and more focused on Autographs. This is well worth the investment to bust open a box or two. If your geared towards NASCAR or even if your looking to get into something new within the collecting hobby this would be the box for you. By far one of the best products we've busted this year and definitely will be hard to top within the future NASCAR products coming down the line.

Product Review: 2013 Bowman Platinum Baseball Hobby Box

Last week marked the release of 2013 Bowman Platinum from Topps which added to the prospect collecting for 2013. The Bowman Platinum brand continues with providing us with today's stars, rookies and future stars in the game. If you like baseball prospecting this is a great product for that. It takes the Bowman regular release and adds some flare to it, and by flare we mean die-cuts, parallels, inserts, autographs and relics.

This years set is comprised of 100 base cards and 100 Prospect base cards. Each of the base cards have hobby parallels to collect with the Base cards having Gold (1:5), Blue Sapphire (1:10), and Ruby (1:20). The Prospects also have a Chrome version to them and have multiple Refractors to hunt down; X-Fractor, Green, Blue, Gold, Red, Atomic, and Super-Fractor.
Inserts play a role within this years product. Best Bowman Players of All-Time continues in Platinum with 10 cards in the continuity program to collect. Along side are Diamonds in the Rough, Top Prospects. and Cutting Edge Stars die-cuts.

Each Hobby box will consist of 20 packs and 5 cards per pack. Most hobby shops will sell by the box, but you might find some that sell by the pack. If you do, your odds of finding a Relic will decrease due to the fact there are no filler cards in this product. So pack searches could be on the hunt to pull them out of the opened boxes. Autographs are harder to search for so you have a good chance there.

Platinum runs in both Hobby and Retail packs, however the main value comes from the Hobby boxes. The difference being the different Purple Retail Parallel. This is not to say that you can't find an Autograph or Relic in the packs at Retail, but your odds ratio increases.

So lets see how we did in our hobby box break:

Base Cards: 24 (0 doubles)
Prospect Base Cards: 50 (0 doubles)
Base Card Gold Parallel: 4 - Jered Weaver, Cole Hamels, Edwin Encarnacion, Yoenis Cespedes
Base Card Blue Sapphire Parallel: 2 - David Wright, Chase Utley
Base Card Ruby Parallel: 1 - Chris Sale
Chrome Prospects: 5 - Corcino, Crick, Rosario, Montgomery, Nunez
Chrome Prospects Green Parallel: 1 - Corey Seager /399
Chrome Prospects X-Fractor: 1 - Joe Ross
Diamond In The Rough: 1 - C.J. Edwards
Best Bowman Players Blue Sapphire Refractor: 1 - Evan Longoria
Cutting Edge Stars: 2 - Evan Longoria, C.J. Cron
Top Prospects: 4 - Jorge Soler, Kevin Gausman, Gregory Polanco, Matt Barnes
Autographed Prospects: 2 - Jesse Biddle, Michael Kickham (Green /399)
Autographed Jumbo Relic: 1 - Avisail Garcia Blue Refractor /199

I must say we did fairly well overall in this box. The card design of the base and prospect base cards are nicely done with refractor type technology. You can tell the difference between the Prospect cards as they have a circle around the BP compared to the oval around the BP on the regular base set. We did notice some chipping around the edges of the base cards though. Not typical pack damage so could be the brittleness of the card stock and technology. This was on a few cards but nothing major showing or damaged. Chrome prospects are the same design as the base cards but with the technology and different numbering. Refractor technology is great from Topps and the parallels equal to those in previous releases. the one thing about the chrome cards is finger prints. they run rampant when you look through them.

Base card parallels are nice with the "Cracked" look. Blue and Ruby are easy to pick out but the Gold is very tricky and have to be in the right light to make sure you have a parallel or not. The scan shows it perfectly but under normal lighting it is tough. Would help if Topps stated the parallel on the back of the cards.
Diamond in the Rough and Top Prospect inserts are decent and the design of the Top Prospect cards are one of the best. Aside from the refractor technology, the design lines on the card make them very collectible.
Continuity programs sometimes can be tiresome but this years "Bowman's best" is a great one to collect. Dating back to the first Bowman cards and adding them as Blue Refractors is awesome. Very happy with the Longoria pulled for the PC. Die-cuts continue to draw interest with collectors. Cutting Edge Stars is no different, very cool design and unique cut. these are tougher than they look but be careful around the bottom sharp cuts in the middle which look a little brittle.
Onto the Hits......well lets talk Autographs, as in On-Card Autographs. Again a big fan of these and add value to us as collectors. The two players we pulled aren't the top prospects but nice that they are on-card autographs. Was happy we didn't pull a redemption for an autograph with the current troubles with replacements.
Our Autographed Relic was a nice Jumbo of recently traded Avisail Garcia. Must say he has a great autograph and took the time to sign it nicely. even though it is a sticker auto still happy as this is common with relic autographs. Again we were pleased with no redemption plus pulling a nice future star is never a bad thing.
Overall is a good new story for the 2013 release. Designs are sharp, inserts were well planned and added value to the box. Of course the 2 Autographs and Relic Auto make or break the box typically but in this case with the amount of prospects pulled your value is there. This is just like any other Bowman product with prospects, you might have to wait a bit to see your values show but well worth it when these prospects make it to the "bigs". Highly recommended for any Prospect collector or Chrome fan.

Product Review: 2013-14 Panini Score Hockey Jumbo Hobby Box

Panini provided us with their first 2013-14 Hockey product a couple of weeks ago now, Score. This is their lower-end product which comes in two formats; a 36 packs with 12 box or a 10 pack 52 cards per pack jumbo box. I always prefer the Jumbo's over the retail/hobby boxes as you will always be receiving more for your value. This year is no different in the Jumbo box land, but will be a first that Score Hockey will guarantee two Autographs and a Relic in each box. This is great news for any hockey collector.

The basics around this years set is a 550 card strong set features all the rookies you missed out on with the strike shorten hobby season. 60 rookies in total make up part of the 550 cards along with 30 Team leaders and 10 Highlight cards.
As mentioned above, this years product comes along with Autographs and Relics. The Autographs range from Hot Rookies, Recollection Collection and Score Signatures. You will find 2 of these in each Jumbo box. The Relics are pretty cool for this type of product and should be a mainstay going forward. Each Relic is a Team 8 Relic, meaning 4 players on each side with a piece of their jersey swatch. there are 48 of these to search for and can be 8 players from one team, four and four, or even two players on four teams. Along with the Autographs some of these are Short Printed. You will find 1 Relic in each Jumbo Box.

There are 7 inserts to collect as well in this packed product including Check-It, First Goal, Net Cam, Team Score, Future Team, The Franchise and The Future Franchise. All with distinct designs and more players to hunt down for your PC.

So lets get down to business, we picked up a Jumbo Box since it had the most value for your money and we were very happy with our results:

Base Cards: 337 (6 doubles)
Base Card Team Leaders: 20
Base Card Highlight: 10
Base Card Hot Rookies: 40
Gold Base Card: 60
Gold Base Card Team Leaders: 6
Gold Base Card Highlights: 2
Gold Base Card Hot Rookies: 12
Check-It: 1 - Eric Lindros
First Goal: 2 - Mika Zibanejad, Brandon Saad
Net Cam: 1 - Carey Price
Team Score: 1 - Jonathan Quick
Black Base Card: 2 - Tuukka Rask, Tim Gleason
Alternative Back Base Card: 1 - Ryan McDonagh
Autographs: 2 - Nathan Beaulieu (Hot Rookie), Stephan Gionta
8 Piece Relic: 1 - Bruins/Leafs/RedWings/Canadiens (Hamilton/Seguin, Komarov/Kessel, Mrazek/Datsyuk, Price/Galchenyuk)

Needless to say this is a very loaded product and provides you more than you might expect. The Base Card designs are simple and very Score like. Nothing too fancy but they do the job. The one thing I noticed was the photography is excellent on almost each card. The goalies I find to have the best overall pictures and look great in the action shots taken. The Hot Rookies design is also nothing too fancy, but does incorporate the new Dual Rookie symbol on each one.
The Gold Parallel cards are not numbered but are a nice touch to the product. The Hot Rookies should do well in the secondary markets with the set being so large and Golds not easily found. The Black Parallel is nice as well and same as the Golds are not numbered but less found per box. We found two in ours so these will be on the hunt list for PC collectors. Also rare are the Alternative Red Backs, we were able to find 1 in our box but have found this is not the case in each box. The front of the cards are the same and we found ours in the middle of the pack within the inserts so it was easy to tell.

The Autographs we pulled were not the best pulls but still Autographs to say the least. Both were Sticker Autographs but at least we pulled a Canadien Hot Rookie for our PC. With a box in this price range providing two Autographs and a Relic you can't complain.  

The best part of the box was finding the relic. Knowing it was an 8 piece swatch was exciting and not knowing which team or players on the card was even more exciting to find it. Needless to say we pulled a very cool card for the PC again. This card features the 4 top teams in the North East and 4 of the Original 6 teams! Super happy to pull this one out of the box, the Datsyuk has a little bit of stick or puck mark on it which is rare to find on hockey swatches. It also has a rookie from each of the teams including Galchenyuk for Montreal. 
So overall we are very pleased with our box. Not only did it provide some nice PC needs but it gave us a sense of true value spent on the product. You don't find that in every product and Panini did a great job giving back to the collectors on this one. This is a highly recommended product to break and would suggest the Jumbo Box if you have the option. Very affordable and very giving which is the way you would always like it to be as a collector.
