I haven't walked into a Target in probably three months though thanks to this pandemic, so instead I decided to hit eBay to satisfy my "something with a surprise element" craving. What I settled on was the package you see above, which is a random soccer re-pack.
For $11.99 this was an intriguing offer by a seller with excellent feedback. Each lot contains over 20 cards and is guaranteed to have:
- One card of each Messi, Ronaldo, and Neymar (three of the biggest names in the sport globally)
- Twelve inserts
- Two serial-numbered cards
- One relic
- One autograph
The back layer has that brown striped backing that you see behind Christian, then there's a middle "spacer" layer that elevates the top portion of the card which contains the border and the image of Christian. The box behind Christian is a clear acetate on that top layer, allowing you to see down to the bottom layer and creating a cool 3-D sort of effect. I did not expect anything this nice as my hit in a re-pack for $11.99, that's for sure!
Well, that was a whole lot of fun. I killed an hour or two stuck at home just enjoying these cards, researching the subjects and typing up this post. I'd certainly consider going back to this seller for another re-pack or two if this pandemic lasts as long as it's supposed to!
Thanks for stopping by as always, and especially for sticking with me through a soccer post, and have a great Memorial Day weekend! I've got more content planned for the holiday weekend so stop on by again if you're looking for some cardboard happenings to read about...
