So, here is the twist for this Pack/Box War. I will first compare the two 10 pack boxes against each other, then the 2 of them combined versus the 20 pack box tomorrow. At first I was just going to show the best card in each pack, but several packs had a couple if not a few choices. What I have done is scanned 1 page only of each pack, so if it had more than 9 cards then I left out those which didn't come into play as far as I am concerned.
I am listing the packs here so when we get to the scans , you know.
Pinstripe Box contained these packs:
2014 Topps Update, 2015 Topps Series 2 and Update, 2015 TSC, 2014 Heritage, 2014 Archives,
2015 A&G, 2015 Topps Opening Day x2, and 2012 Triple Play.
Blue 10 pack Box contained these packs:
2015 Bowman, 2015 Heritage, 2015 GQ, 2015 Topps Ser. 1 & 2 x2 each, 2015 Topps Opening Day jumbo pack, 1991 UD, and a 1988 Donruss.
Blue 20 pack Box contained these packs:
1991 Donruss x3, 2015 Bowman x4, 2016 Leaf Babe Ruth x5, 2015 Topps Ser. 1 x4, 2015 Topps Ser. 2 Jumbo, 2015 TSC, 2015 Leaf Heroes x2, and a single card bonus.
Here we go.
PS pack 1
For me the Seaver insert was/is the best.
Blue box pack 1
I have no standout favorites here.
Score PS 1- Blue 0
BLUE pack 2
I stated earlier this week on this blog how I feel about Bowman. I was thrown back a bit to see in each pack there base bowman, bowman prospects, and bowman chrome prospects. These were also 10 card packs so I pulled 1 from each. This one did have the Green parallel in to the top right corner.
PS pack 2 & 3:
For me I have to go with the Trophy cup, the Blue box takes pack 2.
Score PS 1- Blue 1
BLUE pack 3:
Hands down Banks, BLUE takes pack 3.
Score PS 1- Blue 2
BLUE pack 4:
This was a jumbo pack hence the inserts and Trophy Cups which I needed all of them.
PS pack 4:
Clemens takes this pack. Blue wins again.
Score PS 1- Blue 3
BLUE pack 5:
That is a great Babe Ruth insert.
PS pack 5:
You know I am rooting for the pinstripes. I felt this was a no brainer when I was ripping the packs, but when comparing them, I don't know. Blue again.
Score PS 1- Blue 4
Blue pack 6
Nomar is a PC guy.
PS pack 6:
Great Shadow on the Strasburg card. TSC beats out pretty much anything.
Score PS 2- Blue 4
BLUE pack 7:
So so pack.
PS pack 7:
Score PS 3- Blue 4
BLUE pack 8:
PS pack 8:
Archives Fan Favorites Certified on card autograph of a Brave, yep all even now. I guess that is a HIT. Works for me.
Score= PS 4- Blue 4
PS pack 9:
A mini and an insert, we'll see.
BLUE pack 9:
Yeah I don't have to say a thing.
Score= PS 5- Blue 4
PS pack 10:
BLUE pack 10:
Pack 10 for both boxes yuk. But I'll go with the Clemens and call these two boxes a draw and will have to decide which wins. I got the autograph HIT and the Red Border Heritage Brave from the Pin Stripe box, I declare the PS the winner. Tomorrow I will only show the BLUE 20 pack box as you have these from today to compare them against.
