I got a surprise box in the mail yesterday. It was from In The Game and it’s their Canadiana Series. These boxes retail for $93 on Blowout Cards and it’s a one pack 8 card box. I do like these one pack box of hits only. We shall see if I like it to the tune of $93. This was my first video box break, so I should warn you, it was done at 5am this morning, it’s really bad, and you are probably going to laugh at how awful it is. That being said here is the video:
OK now that my embarrassing video is over with, we can get into the meat and potatoes of the review. The hits were great, the Scott Niedermayer card has two swatches of jerseys, one from his Ducks uniform and the other from his Team Canada Olympic Hockey uniform. I found out that Susan Jacks is in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and is a famous musician from the 1960s -1980s and still performs today. As for Jessalyn Gilsig, she has been in everything from Glee to Boston Public to Heroes. The T-Shirt swatch is considered to be a mega swatch. It’s a blue t-shirt worn by the actress. As for the base cards I had 5 ruby version and 1 sapphire version.
Now for my take, $90+ for 3 hits and 6 base is a disappointment to me. I love the cards, I love the designs, but I just don’t see the value. One more autograph or game used and my take would probably be different. But this product in my opinion seems to be a bit overpriced. Now I am not Canadian, so these might be the equivalent of pulling a Dolly Parton autograph and a Heather Locklear T-shirt, but still I just don’t see the value. I give it a 2.5 out of 5. Leave a comment below and subscribe to the blog and you could win one of the hits. All weekend I will be giving away cards. This contest ends tomorrow morning at 10am.
I need Canadian input, is this a good box?
