  • Box Break Buffoonery: 2009 World's Greatest Chase


    The Product: Two Boxes of 2009 World's Greatest Chase
    The Purchase Price: $5/box = $10 = A Nice Meal @ Baja Fresh
    The Contents: 16 Action Packs Per Box = 32 Packs of Cards You Normally Wouldn't Buy


    Kudos to whoever designed the box for this product. I rarely buy packs or boxes anymore, but I was drawn to the Spiderman comic on the front of the box... and with a little encouragement from Max (who was selling these) at the Great Mall card show, I picked them up.


    I figured at $5/box, how could I go wrong? That's less than $.16/pack. I mean... at that moment in time, I felt like the box should have said... 2009 World's Greatest Deal.


    Well... I was wrong... and the fact is... you get what you pay for. But I have nobody to blame, except myself. Yep... I'm the buffoon!


    World's Greatest Card Chase did an excellent job of advertising their product accurately. They promised 16 action packs, which were defined on the box as either movie cards, TV show cards, comic cards, sci-fi cards, or sports cards.


    And that's exactly what I received. Here's a breakdown of what the two boxes contained:




    2008 TriStar PROjections Baseball (x2)
    2008 TriStar PROjections Baseball High Series (x4)
    2008 TriStar TNA Impact Wrestling (x4)
    1996 Topps X-Files Season Two (x2)
    1994 Collect-A-Card Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (x2)
    1995 Fleer Ultra ReBoot (x2)
    2004 Cards Inc. Shrek Two (x2)
    1994 Pacific Saved By The Bell The College Years (x2)
    1995 Saban VR Troopers (Ryan Steel)
    1995 Saban VR Troopers (Kaitlin Hall)
    1992 Pro Set Guinness Book of World Records (x2)
    1993 Topps The Flintstones (The Movie) (x2)
    1994 Upper Deck Street Fighter (The Movie)
    1992 Food Lion Richard Petty Fan Appreciation
    1997 Pinnacle Checkers (Rudd/Martin/Benson)
    1996 Upper Deck Johnny Quest (French Version) (x2)
    1988 Topps Dinosaurs Attack


    Out of the thirty-two packs, I opened ten of them: the six baseball and four wrestling packs. Here are the top two cards I pulled:




    Nothing spectacular, but at least I'm able to add a few more packs to my Non-Sports Wax Pack Collection.


    Happy Tuesday... and sayonara!

    For the price, you cant really go wrong. It would have been nice if they threw in a Marvel Universe Series 1 pack in the box. That would make up for falsely advertising the comic on the box. LOL!

    This is the card from Marvel Universe Series 1 that I was referring to. It is a real card.

          Thanks! Didn't find much to open, but at least several packs went to my non sports unopened wax pc. The rest I'll giveaway in this summer's contest.

          I'm a huge fan of those Marvel Universe sets from the early 90's. I purchased a ton hunting down those holograms... still need a couple for my sets.
