Quarterback hot pack. My local Target placed a new retail box of 2014 Absolute Football out today so I figured that it would be worthwhile to purchase a random pack for $2.90, which contains 10 cards. I didn't previously purchase a retail pack of 2014 Absolute Football because Panini die cutted all of the freaking thin cards, which would most likely be damaged by pack searchers. Base Cards 13 - Geno Smith The desperate New York Jets prematurely made Smith a starter quarterback. That's one of the many reasons why they failed in the 2013 and 2014 seasons. 42 - Robert Griffin III Injuries and poor coaching has held Griffin III back in the 2013 and 2014 seasons. 44 - Tom Brady Brady became the third quarterback in NFL history with 150 wins as a starter, behind only to Brett Favre and Peyton Manning. 51 - Drew Brees Brees experienced his "most frustrating season" in 2014. He claims the Saints have found solutions to fix those problems. 54 - Tony Romo Romo finished the 2014 season with a passer rating of 113.2. Despite his efforts the Dallas Cowboys failed to reach the Super Bowl. 71 - Eddie Lacy Lacy was nicknamed "Snowplow Eddie" due to the weather in Green Bay and his aggressive running style. 78 - Darren McFadden McFadden's mediocre 2014 season could jeopardize his career with the Oakland Raiders. 80 - Peyton Manning Manning's Super Bowl record is 1-2. Will he make that 2-2 next season? 115 - Orleans Darkwa [RC] Darkwa was quickly traded to the New York Giants in his rookie 2014 season. Insert Cards Red Spectrum 17 - Joe Flacco In 2014 Flacco set an NFL record for most consecutive playoff games (eight) with at least two touchdown passes. Considering I mostly watch football to see the quarterbacks in action, I'm more than satisfied with this pack. I'll cover a value pack (or hot value pack) of this series this coming weekend.
You can't go wrong with these Micro SD cards. The New Nintendo 3DS XL uses Micro SDHC cards, which is installed on the back plate of that handheld. You'll need a size number 00 Philip's head screwdriver to remove that back plate. Listed below are the Micro SDHC cards that's confirmed to be compatible with that handheld: SanDisk Extreme microSDHC: 16GB SDSDQXL-016G-A46A 32GB: SDSDQXL-032G-A46A SanDisk Extreme PLUS microSDHC: 16GB: SDSDQX-016G-A46A 32GB: SDSDQX-032G-A46A SanDisk Extreme PRO microSDHC: 16GB: SDSDQXP-016G-A46A 32GB: SDSDQXP-032G-A46A Toshiba microSDHC: 8GB: PFM008U-1DCK Image credit: Nintendo
That could save you some time and prevent disappointment. The New Nintendo 3DS XL releases February 13, 2015 in the North American market. I've compiled a few tips that you should learn if you're considering purchasing that handheld. 1) It doesn't include a power adapter charger. The New Nintendo 3DS XL doesn't include a power adapter charger, because Nintendo has come to a conclusion that you already own one. The New Nintendo 3DS XL is compatible with chargers included with the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL. If you don't own either of those platforms (like Nintendo assumes), you can purchase an official Nintendo 3DS for less than $12 on Amazon.com. 2) You can't simultaneously share your Nintendo Network ID. Previous Nintendo 3DS users will be forced to run a system transfer before they can download content from their eShop library on their New Nintendo 3DS XL, because you can't simultaneously use the same Nintendo Network ID on more than one 3DS. 3) It uses a different type of memory card. The New Nintendo 3DS XL uses Micro SD cards, which is smaller than the SD cards that's compatible with previous 3DS models. If you invested in an expensive SD card for your large 3DS game library, you'll need to purchase a high capacity Micro SD card, because the New Nintendo 3DS XL only includes a 4 GB Micro SD card. I suggest that you purchase a SanDisk Extreme PRO 32GB Micro SDHC (SDSDQXP-032G-G46A) memory card which is confirmed to be compatible with the New Nintendo 3DS XL. Image credit: Nintendo

Third time's a charm! I purchased three hot packs of 2014-15 Panini Prestige Basketball for only $13.43. Two of my packs are thick, and my final pack is thin. It looks like I'll pull two thick materials cards and one thin serial numbered card. 2014-15 Panini Prestige Basketball features a load of serial numbered hits. I'm predicting I'll pull one card numbered to 75 or less, and two cards numbered to 199. Pack 1 Base Cards 39 - Nicolas Batum 62 - Javale McGee 70 - Gerald Henderson 152 - Jonas Valanciunas 157 - Nene 159 - J.R. Smith 176 - Tyler Ennis 180 - Rodney Hood Insert Cards Franchise Favorites 14 - Kobe Bryant Bryant is a 16-time NBA All-Star (1998, 2000–2014). If he manages to make that team for another 3 years, he'll tie Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's NBA All-Star record of 19. Purple NBA Materials 18 - Pau Gasol (serial numbered 194/199) Gasol was signed by the Chicago Bulls on July 13, 2014. In my opinion, he has been their Most Valuable Player so far this season. It's a shame the pack searcher dented this card during his/her search. Pack 2 Base Cards 40 - Ersan Ilyasova 49 - Nikola Pekovic 93 - Ty Lawson 96 - Carmelo Anthony 112 - Joakim Noah 117 - Matt Barnes 192 - Erick Green 195 - Jordan Clarkson Insert Cards Franchise Favorites 18 - Ricky Rubio True Colors Materials 12 - Tyson Chandler (serial numbered 47/75) Chandler was traded back to the Dallas Mavericks on June 25, 2014. As of January 16, 2015 he has scored 10.8 points and 12.2 rebounds. This hit also has deep dents. Pack 3 Base Cards 9 - Nerles Noel 13 - Tim Duncan 51 - Ryan Anderson 60 - Gerald Green 68 - Demar DeRozan 75 - Kenneth Faried 167 - Julius Randle 171 - Doug McDermott Insert Cards Hardcourt Heroes 13 - Anthony Davis Bonus Shots Platinum Autographs - Tony Snell (serial numbered 1/1) Holy crap! I pulled a mint 1 of 1 autographed card from a retail pack of this series! That was totally unexpected considering my first two hits is mediocre on many levels. Snell was named to the 2014 All-NBA Summer League first team. He's expected to be a solid contributor in Chicago for the foreseeable future. If I tell that seller what I pulled he/she would faint! Instead, I'll simply follow that seller and make another purchase as a thank you.
Sells for less than the price of 15 blaster boxes. The only complete 2014 Topps Football Commemorative Kickoff Coin Set on eBay was quick to sell for less than $300 by way of a secret best offer. That set consists of the following 32 cards that can only be found in retail blaster boxes of that series: NFLKC-AA - Antonio Gates (San Diego Chargers) NFLKC-AG - A.J. Green (Cincinnati Bengals) NFLKC-AL - Andrew Luck (Indianapolis Colts) NFLKC-AP - Adrian Peterson (Minnesota Vikings) NFLKC-AR - Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers) NFLKC-BM - Brandon Marshall (Chicago Bears) NFLKC-BR - Ben Roethlisberger (Pittsburgh Steelers) NFLKC-CJ - Calvin Johnson (Detroit Lions) NFLKC-CK - Colin Kaepernick (San Francisco 49ers) NFLKC-CN - Cam Newton (Carolina Panthers) NFLKC-CS - Cecil Shorts III (Jacksonville Jaguars) NFLKC-DB - Drew Brees (New Orleans Saints) NFLKC-DM - Denarius Moore (Oakland Raiders) NFLKC-EA - EJ Manuel (Buffalo Bills) NFLKC-EM - Eli Manning (New York Giants) NFLKC-JC - Jamaal Charles (Kansas City Chiefs) NFLKC-JF - Joe Flacco (Baltimore Ravens) NFLKC-JG - Josh Gordon (Cleveland Browns) NFLKC-JL - James Laurinaitis (St. Louis Rams) NFLKC-JW - J.J. Watt (Houston Texans) NFLKC-KW - Kendall Wright (Tennessee Titans) NFLKC-LF - Larry Fitzgerald (Arizona Cardinals) NFLKC-LM - LeSean McCoy (Philadelphia Eagles) NFLKC-MR - Matt Ryan (Atlanta Falcons) NFLKC-MW - Muhammad Wilkerson (New York Jets) NFLKC-PM - Peyton Manning (Denver Broncos) NFLKC-RG - Robert Griffin III (Washington Redskins) NFLKC-RT - Ryan Tannehill (Miami Dolphins) NFLKC-RW - Russell Wilson (Seattle Seahawks) NFLKC-TB - Tom Brady (New England Patriots) NFLKC-TR - Tony Romo (Dallas Cowboys) NFLKC-VJ - Vincent Jackson (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) The starting price of $300 was a decent price for that set to begin with considering you can only find one Commemorative Kickoff Coin in each $19.99 blaster box; with that said, I suspect the buyer offered $240 (20 percent off) for that set.
