Retail Review #208 (10/11 Score)


I'll always have good memories of Score. It was a brand of cards that I collected in the 90's and it is a brand that continued to produce cards that looked and felt like the ones from back in the day. These blasters were cheap enough when they were new, but currently they can be found for under four dollars! That is an incredibly low price!



Price - 
$3.95

Packs - 11
10/11 Score Packs

I really don't feel as if it has been that long since I was breaking box after box of this. I remember vividly going to my local Target and picking up boxes of Score. At the time I had just gotten back into card collecting and I was hungry to get my hands on any product I could.

Score met my needs very well because it was extremely affordable and a relatively new product from Panini who had just come into the fold. Score hasn't really stood the test of time - as evidenced by its price - but it is a product that can yield some rare and hard-to-find cards... if you're lucky enough!

Let's open this blaster up and see what's in it:


Review -
This break was very similar to other Score breaks that I've done. Each blaster will net you a handful of insert cards as well as a glossy card per pack. I always look forward in seeing what inserts come out of the blaster as Score has such a wide array of them. Rookie cards are also fun to check out. From that year PK Subban is available to be pulled. Unfortunately, the rookies I got in my blaster weren't very good ones.

Here were my top cards from this break:

Top 3 Cards


#3 - John Tavares Card No. 306
Johnny T was the big rookie to get when I started collecting, and this is a second year card of his. I still get excited when pulling his cards. It's because of that initial excitement that I got caught up in back in those early days. I'm glad JT has turned out to be an excellent hockey player. Also, love the All-Rookie Team logo in the corner!


#2 - Anze Kopitar Card No. 231
This was probably the best of the bunch when it came down to the glossy cards. Kopitar has been a very good player for the Kings and played a crucial role in their championship years.


#1 - Joe Thornton Card No. 25
This is a sweet looking card of Jumbo Joe. The card has a very 90's looking feel to it. The Franchise cards were big pulls way back when. Pulling them now isn't a big deal, but I still enjoy them nonetheless.

Overall Value -
This is probably one of the cheapest blasters that you can find today. Is it a good value? I'd have to say yes because there are still quality cards that can be pulled out of Score. If you're ever looking to add a little something to a hockey order, Score is probably the product to do that with!

Let me know what you thought of my blaster in the comment section below. Have you ever pulled anything good out of one of these? I'd love to hear about it.

Overall Value Score:
6/10

Look for a new episode of Retail Review every Sunday!
