As I stated in my description, I can no longer work due to injuries in Iraq, but my wife gives me an allowance (just like my kids). Some times to get a higher end product I have to save for awhile. I went to a hobby store and had to really bite my toungue when I told the man behind the counter I wanted one of those $50 packs. I opened at the store, and I wanted to throw my cards right back at the man! The two cards that were anything great was this David Wright Relic /99 and Tim Lincecum /75. Both those cards I could buy on Check Out My Cards for less than $20 and that is the reason I don't buy high end items. I could either buy a couple blaster boxes every few weeks, or one 5 card pack a month.
Yes, there are some very good high end cards, but when you are collector that has to pinch pennies to buy the high end product and get a single relic card, you kind of feel sick. Oh well, I'm sure I'll try another $50 pack in 2013 and say the same damn thing over again about, why the heck did I buy this! This should be my one and only break of Tribute for me this year. Hope you enjoyed reading about my disappointment! ;)
