As soon as I was able to jump on my computer Friday, I immediately went to e-Bay to check out what they had to offer in terms of Panini’s new Prestige basketball product, which made its return to shelves on Friday after a one-year hiatus.
I have been adding cards of both Pau and Marc Gasol to my personal collection for about a year. Panini’s new release allowed me to get my hands on some fresh cardboard of the brothers Gasol. My first purchase was of the brothers’ Connections insert card. The card, which features both Marc and Pau, was available for the buy it now price of $1.00.
My second purchase was of MarcGasol’s Inside The Numbers jersey card. I was in a hotly contested auction for the card throughout Saturday, but I prevailed in the end, taking only a $6.00 hit in the wallet.
For those of you who missed my last post, I also snagged a Terrence Ross Draft Night Autograph in a blaster box of 2012-13 NBA Hoops this weekend. Needless to say, the snag was quite the surprise, given the complete gamble of buying retail.
