Pack Attack - 2013 Hometown Heroes

Today's pack comes from Dave and Adam's Card World in Buffalo as it was one of the packs I picked up while there this past August and am just getting to opening now. I don't have any cards from the set, so fingers crossed this ends up a fair pack so let's get to opening...

Given there is no license, can understand needing to use the city names only, clean up the uniforms, and I guess get rid of the background completely, but the yellow is just overpowering. Definitely not my favourite at all.

The first set I like better than these...

Excellent pickup - definitely not a card I love for the look, but an excellent Jay.

So, I got this, figured it was a parallel given the similar look, but the number in the top right. Being Canadian I didn't clue in that it was a zip code, which is an unusual way to make a parallel, but I guess it works. It also took me looking it up to find the last 40 cards in this 300 card set are short prints - geez! So rare enough get for a parallel short print - apparently zip code cards fall one per box. A quick look online makes me figure this card makes it worth the $1US for the pack, if nothing else so - can't argue with that!

  1. I didn't realize it was a zip code either. I thought it was a serial number.
