PackGeek ep #125 | 2008-09 Topps Chrome Basketball Hobby Box | Monster Kobe Refractor HIT

It has taken ALL of my willpower not to open this box before now. It’s been sitting in a closet, it survived our recent move, and now it’s finally time to see what the contents are. I don’t think I’m the only person that imagines one of the biggest hits in the release being in their unopened pack, box or case. But something told me that I needed to hang on to this one, and open it on the show. I’m glad I did.

PackGeek ep #121 | Hobby Shop Profile w/ Mike Becker of Playball Sports Cards in Arlington, TX

As a kid, I dreamed of trips to the card shop. During the school year, I was lucky to make it there once a week. While my memories will always be fond of the card shops of my youth, they pale in comparison to Playball Sports Cards in Arlington, TX. Veteran hobby shop owner, Mike Becker, has created a sports card mecca with his nearly 6,000 square foot hobby paradise – just a stone’s throw from the Rangers’ Ballpark and the Cowboys’ Stadium.

PackGeek ep #116 | 1996-97 Topps Finest Series 1 Basketball | w/ Guest Eric Norton – Kobe Bryant Rookie Card

A rookie class like the NBA had in 1996-97, does not come around often. We’re talking about Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson, Steve Nash amongst other HOF candidates who played their first season of pro ball that year. It’s LOADED! So naturally, we want to open some product from that year. I enlisted our good buddy, and veteran pack ripper, Eric Norton – to join us for this hobby adventure!

Last year, I considered Panini’s Chronicles Basketball release to be the sleeper hit of the year. This year, Panini has brought the same exciting mix of products to Chronicles Football! Chronicles Football is the delicious trail mix of the hobby, and I think Panini has another homerun on their hands. I challenge you to find a product that yields more rookie cards! Our favorite Hobby Marketing Manager, Tracy Hackler, joins us for the unveiling.
