This year I've opened only one current hobby box. The usual suspect would be Topps but the Flagship design didn't interest me. Other Topps boxes are overpriced thanks to the Aaron Judge gold rush. None of the other set designs have grabbed me either.
What was the lucky box, then? It was 2016-17 Panini Presitge. I previously posted about this set, remarking how I enjoyed the cards. Even after opening a box, I'm still a lot of cards short of the base set.
I saw Rosenort at Condition Sensitive post about opening some packs of Prestige and decided to see if I could chip away at my want list.
Is JR Smith copying Nik Satuskas or is Stauskas copying Smith? The world may never known.
I miss the old Raptors with their cartoon logo and purple uniforms. I can understand why they would change away from it though.
The always elusive rookie cards. Diamond Stone saw a measly 7 games of playing time. Marquese Chriss saw far heavier playing time. He played in 82 games averaging 21 minutes per game. He's clearly the better rookie out of this trade.
Thanks for the trade, Rosenort!
