They Did It and 2017 WWE Topps Blaster 2

Of course, have to first talk about the Raptors and their historic win last night to bring the NBA championship north of the border for the first time ever.

It was a fantastic back and forth game with something like 15-17 lead changes.

Couldn't ask for a better way to close out Oracle than a championship win for the Raps.

Sure, we can start to question whether Kawhi will stay here, and what next year will bring, but for a few days at least, let the party just happen and enjoy. First word seems to be that the parade will be Monday which stinks because it is a filing deadline for some tax returns...will be interesting to deal with the commotion getting to and from work....but well worth it!

I will have to try and sneak over to it for a little bit though.

Here we are - the final WWE blaster from Dave & Adam's last year. I have one baseball one left for show after this - hopefully between the two, we end with a bang.

Odd are I won't get close to completing the set. That said, I have 53 of 100 base cards, so if no dupes, should be over 90 - but THAT isn't going to happen with collation these days!

A reminder of the scoring...

Base card - 1 point (yes, all cards get a point)
Base card need - 3 points
Base variation card - 20 points
Insert Card bonus - points based on odds - if 1 in 4 - worth 4 points
Per Box Bonus card will be per points based on the per pack odds - if 1 in 35 boxes worth 350 points as there are 10 packs per box...should be generally fair I think....and reflect value in the "hit"

Pack 1:

An excellent start with 6 new base cards including a nice Johnny Wrestling, Nikki Cross, and Terri looking, well, like Terri did back in the attitude era.

Just one dupe, which is the insert, and given it is a Total Divas one - not too upset about that. I watched more of the show than I probably should have, but haven't seen much of the newer seasons or Total Bellas.

1 Pack, 7 Cards, 19 Points.


  1. Great win for the Raptors. Love seeing Kawhi get another ring and Finals MVP. I like the Divas cards. I'll admit to watching the show from time to time.

  2. Congratulations! Only watched about 20 minutes of the series, but I was pulling for the Raptors. It'll be interesting to see if KD and Kawhi stay with their teams.

    1. Not sure Kawhi is a lock to stay, but hopefully the thought of another championship would be a good reason to stick around...

  3. Yeah, it was a great final game. Total Divas is my guilty pleasure.
