I’m late on this post, of course, but last month everyone’s pal Colbey from Cardboard Collections hosted what he dubbed a “Free Twitter Break” of a pair of 2016 Donruss Optic boxes he’d acquired. Free meaning, all you had to do was chime in first for your team’s slot and drop a paltry four bucks for shipping.
Well that fits my budget perfectly! So I paid our pal over the internet, and a week or so later my cards showed up. I hadn’t been able to watch the break live due to a busy schedule. I can’t recall if it was general family busyness, of if it happened on a night I was working. I think it was the latter. Anyhow, it made opening this little package all the better because it was a total surprise.
It was a hit right off the bat (sorry/not sorry) with this Rated Rookies pull of Tyler White. I’m not sure if it worked the same in Optic, but for the base set the Rated Rookies were seeded more rarely than the other base cards. Seeing as I only got one, it was probably the case for Optic as well.
The Diamond Kings were the other rare base seeds, and I needed both of these Altuves. Score!
Ok, so this Correa was obviously different, but you know what I meant. I was happily needing all three Purple Holo-Prizms that came my way.
