I ended up with more than half of the base set, so if I pick up any boxes in the future, I may try to finish it. I think I had 3 dupes. Getting more than half of the base set is pretty good, in my mind, for a product like this. I got one base card for my VT Hokie collection:
|Eifert, Patterson, Ponder, Nicks|
Including this guy:
|Zach Ertz Gold #59/99|
I got two rookie die cuts. At one-per-box, I beat the odds.
The box promises three hits, and I got three. No complaints, here.
The first is a jersey card. I did a little better than average and got a gold patch parallel:
|Markus Wheaton Gold Patch #23/90|
I'll probably redeem it, hope he doesn't sign, and try to ask for a former-Hokie replacement.
My last hit comes one-per-case, so I'd say I did pretty well with my box.
|Landry Jones Signature Relic #35/35|
I took advantage of having Strata earlier than a lot of folks and listed the good stuff on eBay. The Ertz, Wheaton Patch, and Jones Auto/Relic all sold, which helped me recoup most of what I spent. I'm always happy when I bust a box, get to keep a bunch of cards and still make back some money. I would recommend Strata if you're looking to bust a hobby box at a reasonable price. There are a lot of nice looking cards in there.
Merry Christmas to me!
