1 1969 football card
2 base 84 & 95 (##/99)
1 red base 98 (2/5) 1:10
1 Impala trunk key 2:5
1 Apollo 8 Stamp on NFL 50th Anniversary card
1 bounty card...two long-shot options...

I always like the sound of these historical products that include oddball memorabilia cards and autographs from related individuals, often deceased. I like the novelty aspect and the base cards can be informative.

I've never had much luck getting any substantive hits though. I don't mean value wise, just in the sense of adding something I really enjoyed owning. Unfortunately the filler in these types of products is just stuff and people you have never heard of and it keeps me from trying more than a couple of boxes every couple of years. In the last one I got, I kept getting these glued bits from old newspapers and how historic is that? Big Grin

Thanks for sharing. Opened a case for a group break and really liked it on the whole, especially since it isn't too expensive. I actually think the bounty cards should be a pro, it is an extra incentive for those who like to collect sets. Shatner relics were too common, think there were 6 in a case so it got repetitive. Something about those keys I really liked. Guess since I will never own a vintage Camaro or Corvette at least I can have a key!

You are talking about Super Break with the glued newspaper pieces. They started off really strong a few years back and have gone downhill in quality. Their last release was a mess.

Exactly Super Break Pieces of the Past 2018 Antiquity Edition. The newspaper and document cards were unattractive and pointless. The stamp cards looked a lot better. The product is very discounted now, no doubt because it got opened up. Naturally I bought it when it came out at full price. Big Grin

Just added results of box #2.
Surprised by the hand-numbered insert, and two red parallels. Really happy with the jumbo Vietnam relic.

Anybody have results to post, please do asap.

Wonder if it's a UK thing or a software issue Confused . I can't seem to access any Blowoutforums now although I can get to Blowoutcards.

Thank you ifish73 for posting pictures Thumb Up .

Any of the chase cards hand-numbered?

There are a number of case and individual box breaks on Youtube.

I think the Shatner auto, Shatner leather jacket and one or two of the keys were. Don't remember if any of the coins were.
