This is what the base rider cards look like. I picked these 3 because of their awesome names. We've got a Tater, a Skeeter and a guy with either the best or worst last name for a bull rider, Dirteater! I can't decided if that's cool or unfortunate.
This is what the backs look like. A nice full bleed shot with a short bio and injury info. Apparently Tater and Dirteater are tougher than Skeeter. He wears a hockey mask. What a wuss!
The Bulls' cards were Nobie's favorites from the start. Here we have 3 of the most colorfully named bulls. I'm A Gangster AKA Uncle Buck, Booger Butt and Scene of the Crash. I think I'll steer clear of 'ol Booger Butt especially. Nasty!
One of the insert sets is called Spur Crazy. They are nice and shiny and embossed, but they don't scan well. The fronts show the riders in the middle of their 8 second ride and the backs show them shortly after. Looks like a couple of the guys lost their hats!
The Belt Buckle cards are a little more rare, we only got 2. They are also shiny and embossed, but look much better in person. I'd like to get all 10 of these, but not sure if anyone else on earth even collects them. Now on to the hits!
The box promised 3 relic and 3 autos and that's what we got. We got a rider shirt swatch, a rider hat swatch and a bull fighter jersey swatch. The neat thing about these relic cards is that on the back it shows the article of clothing that the swatch came from or at least where they want you to think it came from. Even if it's not the exact item, it still makes for a nice looking back to the card.
Besides the 3 relics we got the 3 promised autos, 1 black and 2 slightly more rare #'d to 75 blue ones. We got an auto of Joe Baumgartner to go with the relic of his jersey so now all we need is his rookie card for the trifecta! We didn't pull any of the biggest names in the set, but it was still pretty cool to get 3 ON CARD autos! We ended up with a whole set of base cards (100) and the advertised 6 hits. Too bad all boxes don't get you 6 hits for $35! All in all it was a pretty cool box to open. All we've got to do now is track down the rest of the Spur Crazy and Belt Buckle inserts and we'll be all set. Later.
