Super Bowl Countdown: Super Bowl Sunday!

Today is the last day, and the Seahawks need a miracle.  Perhaps they'll find one in here:

Boom.  Go big or go home, right? 

Today's box is 2013 Inception.

I got a great deal on this box, and it's something I've really wanted to open.  It's definitely the most high-end product I've opened.

Each box comes with 2 Autos, 1 Jumbo Relic, 2 base cards and 2 parallels. 

The pack on the inside.
Base Cards:


Green #163/199

Purple #54/95

Rookie Jumbo Relic:
Yellow Patch #07/25


A 1:20 pack pull with a cool jumbo patch. 


Purple #05/75

It appears the Seahawks have just pulled off the miracle.  Going into the last day, they were trailing 10-4.  With this Christine Michael rookie auto, the Seahawks pull way ahead 21-10 with only one card left.

Silver Signings #46/50

These are some of the best looking cards in the set, and I'm thrilled to pull Lacy.  At 1:10 boxes, these are slightly rarer than a case hit.  To get one of the best names on the checklist is icing on the cake.

So, if the cards are right, the Broncos will take the lead early on but lose to the Seahawks who mount an improbable comeback in the final minutes.

Super Bowl Countdown Day 6

Today we will see the second half of the 2013 Finest mini-box.  There should be a hit in this half.

Pack 4
Montee Ball is having himself a field day.  By adding 2 more points (Bronco, rookie) he now has 8 of the Broncos' 10 points.

Pack 5
Pack 5 Refractor of Mike Glennon
Still no love for the Seahawks.

Well, at least the Seahawks break even on the day with a Christine Michael RC.

I'm really not sure why Topps chose that picture for the card.  This would have been great if the 49ers had beaten the Seahawks.

With one day to go, the Broncos lead 10-6
