Cyber Week Breaks: Day 15 - A Catchy Title Goes Here!

I am having a hard time coming up with a title for this post, so I am just moving on without one. Today's packs were 2 packs of 2016 Panini Certified Racing and a box of 2016 Topps UFC High Impact. There wasn't a lot going on with them, so I added a pack of 2017 Topps UFC Knockout to the break to help it along.

The Certified packs were so dull that I only scanned this Danica Patrick base card. That's how it goes sometimes. It's a nice enough card, and it's always fun to pull a card of someone you collect.

The High Impact box included a Rose Namajunas Femme Fighters insert. It would be a better pull, but I already got that card on Day 3. I believe the Thiago Alves autograph is a new one for me. I'm glad it's not another Al Iaquinta autograph. 

My hits from the Knockout pack were pretty good. First up is an Anderson Silva Tier One relic card. This is the Green parallel, and my copy is numbered # 04 / 50. I also got a Tier One autograph card featuring the signature of Arianny Celeste. This is the base version of her card, numbered # 18 / 50. Both of these folks are pretty popular, so it's nice to get some relatively low-numbered hit cards of them.

We are about ready for Christmas. The kids have been going nuts all day, asking what time it is and counting down the hours until bedtime. They will be pretty excited when tomorrow finally arrives. Our boys are all into LEGO kits, so that's what most of the gifts will be. Before we wrapped presents the other day, the opening to our attic looked like this:

Some of those sets are for me, so I guess I'll have a pretty good Christmas morning, too. I think the kids are about to actually get into bed, so I'd better go help wrangle them. I hope my readers also have a good holiday season.


  1. The Celeste card is a great pull, I was part of a MMA collector site for years before it shut down and there was a Arianny Celeste super collector on the site and he was not humble, basically every one of her cards that he bought he made sure everyone knew what he paid. Her early autos are still going for nice prices.

    1. Celeste is one of the better pulls you can get outside of the top few popular fighters. I won't complain about pulling one of her cards.
