I recently joined in one of the case breaks over at Layton Sports Cards before the National. One of the reasons I did so was to get some of the silver Panini packs that Rich was giving away in conjunction with the breaks.
That’s right. I just used the word conjunction.
After the National, I think Rich got overwhelmed with all the stuff he had to mail out and my one little silver pack slipped through the cracks. I notified him via Twitter (yes, I’m on Twitter @patpdude) and he responded almost immediately. I have to say his customer service is top notch. This morning, I found a package from Rich in my in-box.
I know you can count and that’s more than one silver pack. Rich sent me five silver packs and I truly appreciate it.
As you might recall, the National was in Cleveland so the silver packs are loaded with Cleveland Browns.
You can’t complain when you pull a Jim Brown card. How about Johnny Manziel? I’m not interested, but maybe someone else is. Five packs equals ten cards. With four Browns, that leaves 6 other cards.
Unfortunately no baseball players showed up.
I got one numbered card. I’ve never heard of Joel Embiid of the 76ers, but I’ve got card #406/499. The other basketball players were John Wall and The Admiral, David Robinson.
I also pulled three non-Cleveland football players. Jeremy Hill, Logan Thomas and Mike Evans.
I’m not collecting any of these so feel free to let me know if you’re interested in any of these. I think Logan Thomas may be headed to Wes over at Jaybarkerfan.
Many thanks to Rich Layton for the packs.
