Wishful thinking...

When I chose a box of 2007 Ace Straight Sets as my free gift from Dave and Adam's Cardworld, I had hoped for this...

But instead, I pulled this:


Oh well... win some, lose some.  I don't follow tennis and have no idea who Mr. Nalbandian is, although he once was the 3rd ranked player in the world (2006).  He's up for trade if anyone is interested.


In addition to this relic card, I pulled a few players I recognized.  An insert card of the 4th ranked player in the world:


A base card of the 2nd ranked player in the world, along with Enrique Iglesias' girlfriend:


And two new additions to my Japanese PC:


This box wasn't a complete bust.  If anything, it was at the minimum a nice reminder of why I don't bust blaster boxes and/or tennis products.

Happy Sunday and sayonara!

  1. I almost bought a set of those cards (I am at least a casual tennis fan) but when I looked at the checklist there were so many names I didn't know that I decided to pass. I'll stick to singles, pun intended.

    1. Do you need anymore singles from this set? If so, email me a list and your mailing address and I'll ship them to you.

  2. I'd love to open a box of this sometime. I'm a tennis fan, with zero tennis cards.

  3. I broke two CASES (20 boxes each) of that stuff. I've got a ton of sets sitting around. In 2 cases, I pulled 2 Sharapovas. Sorry, though, they're not for trade.

    I do need that Nadal insert, though, as I'm trying to put together all of the insert sets.

  5. Fuji,
    I see you also won a gift from All About Cards. If you get the Andy Dalton Auto and don't want it maybe I could trade something you want I have Let me know I see your 3rd and i'm 8th so you have a shot. Thanks, Dion @ soskinfamily(at)yahoo.com

    1. Lol... highly doubt that'll slip to the 3rd spot. That's what I call... wishful thinking :-)
