Welcome back to another round of The Best Box Break Hits of the Week from the DACW Live Lounge and our team of breakers. Our breaks are streamed live through Twitch, encouraging participants to interact during the break and are always a fun time; when a great card gets pulled, we can’t help but get excited ourselves! That’s the beauty of box breaks – you never know what you’ll get and you can’t help but feel a little adrenaline rush every time there’s a pull. Follow along here on the blog as we will be recapping and showcasing some of the best pulls each week.
So without further ado, here are some of the awesome, rare, and more valuable cards from our box breaks this past week:
A very nice start with a Connor McDavid dual jersey and autograph numbered 10/25 from UD Artifacts. I always like to see contrast with jersey pieces but the dual orange jersey swatches stand out nicely against the pictured McDavid in the Oilers road whites!
A couple of huge pulls from the diamond, side note: Spring Training can’t get here soon enough, along with the warmer weather! From 2017 Panini National Treasures a Babe Ruth Materials Bat card numbered 3/3 bat card and a 2017 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs Red Shimmer Refractors Francisco Mejia!
We finish this week of hits with another unique 1/1 patch from the NFL. If you have been following our blog (and if you haven’t, what is wrong with you!?) you saw last week the awesome 1/1 Mike Williams Nike swoosh patch pulled from 2017 Panini Limited. That card might have been topped with this next Seattle Seahawks ’12th Man’ hanger effect patch. For those unfamiliar, the Seahawks are one of the teams in the league who use the ‘hanger effect’ on their game jerseys, this is usually a city or team inspired phrase, nickname, logo, etc. that is found on the inside neck collar. They have been increasing in popularity on jerseys across both the NFL and NHL in recent years. Here is a snippet of the Seahawks one:
The breakers pulled a ’12th man’ hanger effect patch from 2017 Panini Vertex of Seahwaks WR Tyler Lockett! Another amazing patch card with a little bit of background on it to close out the week!
