Let’s send 2015 out on a high, with the final pre-Black Friday box: Benchwarmer Eclectic! These things are hella monsterbeasts, I tell ya. 8-9 guaranteed hits + 60(!) packs, mostly from the days before Leaf came along and ruined things by turning Benchwarmer into an an almost exclusively high end affair. Said packs usually drop at least 3 more hits (1 is guaranteed) and maybe a few early-mid aught chrome inserts & things. It’s a very fun time, but collating and scanning can be pretty daunting tasks. I still don’t have all the packs I set aside from my first box scanned. They were originally intended to be posted over the summer & early fall on A Pack to be Named Later. Oh well, if the extra strength, climate change-powered El Nino ain’t already doing it, then maybe they’ll finally make it in time to heat up your winter. 😉
Anyway, here’s all the guaranteed stuff you get from every box (though #’ed parallels don’t always happen; my first box had none). We’ll see if I ever get around to posting up the autos/chrome/inserts/high number SPs/etc. from the packs, but it’s well past time you at least had the chance to take a gander at the main stuff.
Sabrina Rose is the only keeper here. Love that inscription. The rest are available, for your hottie binder needs or whatever.
In my first box, the promo autos were the highlight. Both were keepers. These two… not so much.
The promos are available, but I think I threw all my Carmen Electras in a package that’s outward bound the beginning of next year.
We’re in the home stretch. Now all that’s left is the Eclectic Swatch!
Not sure if it’s just my monitor, or it actually scanned that light, but the swatch is pink and it looks like there’s an outline of a number or something rising out of the bottom of the window. Pretty cool, but not a keeper.
There ya go. That’s what you can expect (again, possibly barring a #’ed auto) from one of these boxes. As noted, the post-break work is indeed a burden if you’re planning to show them off in any meaningful way. They’re still super fun breaks regardless. You get upwards of a dozen hits and both my boxes were well below $40 (before shipping). Definitely worth it at that price.
Sabrina Rose is my only keeper. Everything else is available. If you wanna make a deal on one, leave a comment or email me (see my blogger profile on the sidebar). Thanks for stopping by!
Until our next…
