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!

PackGeek ep #115 | 2019 Chronicles Football w/ Guest Tracy Hackler of Panini America

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.

PackGeek ep #112 | Everything You Wanted to Know About Star Basketball Sets | w/ Danny Goldberg | Jordan Star Cards

The Star Basketball sets of the 1980s, are some of the most interesting basketball sets available. The print run is low, and the star power is high. Some believe the 1984-85 Jordan is his true rookie card, and some prefer to label it his XRC (Extended Rookie Card). During this episode I go deep into the world of Star Basketball, with collector and Star aficionado Danny Goldberg.

PackGeek ep #107 | 2017 Optic Football Hobby Box | Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl Celebration

I promised myself that if the Chiefs won the Super Bowl, I’d open a cool box of 2017 “Something” on the show – and Optic Football is where I landed. These boxes have certainly seen a bump since they were initially released, but it’s not every day that you have a chance to pull a Patrick Mahomes rated rookie auto!
