With us being on the other side of the holiday rush, we had a little more time to do some Brief Box Breaks in the shop last week. Next on our list was a 2022 Absolute Football blaster box.
First released a few weeks ago, these carry 66 cards, coming by way of 11 cards over six packs. Making a deal to get Russell Wilson on the box probably seemed like a good idea many months ago.
The box boasts the possibility of autographs or memorabilia cards but we wouldn’t hold our breath there. Maybe they will prove us wrong.
The side of the same box mentions ultra rare (and popular) Kaboom and Explosive inserts as well as three green parallels per blaster box, on average.
All of the rookies in the set are foil while the base cards are printed on glossy stock.
In opening the packs early on, we noticed a ton of duplicates from the base set. Upon further review, the base set only consists of a 100 base cards and 100 rookies, so the overlap will be pretty great.
We managed to pull a rookie card of fast rising Green Bay Packers receiver Christian Watson along with a few quarterbacks.
We did hit a memorabilia card of Indianapolis Colts rookie WR Alec Pierce, who’s really come on late in the season and pieced together a solid rookie campaign.
Then, we pulled a nice looking Leonard Fournette green wave parallel, numbered to 50 copies.
Many of the inserts in this year’s Absolute have a striking appearance and are really high quality for a product at this price point.
We had our fair share of other inserts from Draft Diamonds to Star Gazing to Last Call (a nice action shot of T.J. Watt) to Introductions.
While we didn’t score a huge hit, 2022 Absolute did offer a solid amount of fun for the price.
