I will finish off the Bowman Retail Box tomorrow.  As we head into this week I will be cracking some 2013 Panini Baseball Elite Edition.  I have a great story to go along with those packs that I am looking forward to sharing with you all.  It should be a big week at Wax Cracker.  I will be receiving my first shipment of packs from Steel City Collectibles, which I believe will be NHL packs, and I will crack into them as soon as I get them.  Sean from Steel City has also been extremely generous and has included a big surprise for the pack I  will crack on Super Bowl Sunday!  If that wasn’t enough, I am currently working on an athlete feature and interview of a current major leaguer.  The 4th week of the Wax Cracker project is going to be a big one.  I’ll also be checking in with Sterling More and possibly JVG for another comic article.  And I can’t forget, along with all of the aforementioned awesomeness, Bowman Sterling Baseball Thursday will take a huge week even further over the top.

It has been a great weekend here.  Temperatures in the 80s,

I got to see monkeys and orangutans at the San Diego Zoo today,

plus all the great news I shared with you above.  I feel like I need a weekend from my weekend!  Before I crash in preparation for work tomorrow, let’s crack some wax.

Here are the cards from today:

2014-01-26 17.11.07
Base Cards
2014-01-26 17.11.51
Bowman Prospect Cards
2014-01-26 17.12.22
Gold Card of Manny Machado’s brother-in-law, Yonder Alonso.
2014-01-26 17.12.49
And a sweet Tony Cingrani Top 100 Prospects insert.

Overall, I’ll give this a YEAH rating because I was excited to get the Cingrani.  The Base Cards had nice mix, and the rest of the pack wasn’t that bad.  It was kind of a surprising pack for the second to last from the bottom.

I hope you all are as excited for this week on Wax Cracker as I am.  Please check back often, it should be a good one.  Thanks for starting to reply to my posts more as well.  It’s nice to get the chance to go back and forth with you all.

Make sure to check in with Steel City Collectibles tonight.  They have some great weekend offers going!  I should have the Coupon Code for Steel City live on Wax Cracker by tomorrow evening.
