And the rest now that I have finished scanning some stuff
Had the night off been working on medical and scans
Forgive the top loaders folks but starting to experience storage issues on the box breaks
The CS1 I use take up tons of space, so I am going to switch to top loaders for a while so I can stack more in various boxes

Barry your package was mailed last Friday you should see it today or tomorrow even USPS Flat rate boxes are running slow

OK had my brother send me some stuff again. I blew thru one of the football boxes (2007 Longevity) before remembering folks like seeing stuff opened. The first was a 2007 Leaf Rookies and Stars Longevity football box. The second is below and I'll pop this one open for folks with pictures

Lots more I am just busy like usual so will pop just 1 box this week but when I have time to do more boxes and will post like always. I have time off coming in October.

I do know one of our board members ( @pudge27t ) is a Reggie Bush collector he's probably gonna pay attention to this break . I probably brought these football boxes as a future investment . Some players here are still playing and some had great but short careers.

I could not find a really good source of info on these boxes. Your basic card places do have the info but to be frank its lacking. I'll go with what's on the odds posted on the box itself. I'm sure there's some inserts not listed that were produced.

As always pictures of the outside of the box are below. Looks like 24 packs and 5 cards a pack.

OK so one of my peeps sent me a free box of 2019-20 PANINI ILLUSIONS MEGA BOX basketball to break and keep

Apparently wanted to see me break more stuff since my bro can't go to storage until this Covid stuff blows over
Totally outta my league here but will try and make the best of what I know


Set info I found is best here 2019-20 PANINI ILLUSIONS HOOP

You'll need to look up the info on the different configurations but this Mega Box one comes 6 cards to a pack with 10 packs per box
They have limited Sapphire and Yellow Parallels inside

Box pictures below as always

Scans of the 2019-20 PANINI ILLUSIONS box break. The owner of said box said 'keep the cards"
Sigh- so will "keep the cards" and will send in a few to get graded on my own dime and sold to break my own box of something new

Coolest insert I see is the "black" photo variations ( think maybe for traded players??) and the Cam Reddish Instant Impact
