Retail Therapy: 2019-20 Panini Mosaic Blaster Box

One of my favorite products this year has been Panini Mosaic. I was really excited to be able to find a Blaster Box at my local Target and saved it for a nice treat at the end of a long week.

Panini Mosaic almost never disappoints at the MSRP (for the blaster box it is $19.99). You get 8 packs of 4 cards and will pull plenty of colored parallels. These boxes are up to almost $80 on eBay right now.

Here’s what we pulled out of our box.

Pack 1:

Lou Williams Green Mosaic, Giannis Antetokounmpo MVP, Luka Doncic, Hamidou Diallo.

Pack 2:

Jeff Teague Prizm, Nassir Little Rookie, Evan Fournier, Landry Shamet.

Pack 3:

Enes Kanter Green Mosaic, Cam Reddish Debut, Glenn Robinson III, Jeremy Lamb.

Pack 4:

James Harden Will to Win, Cameron Johnson Rookie, Bradley Beal, Tim Hardaway Jr.

Pack 5:

Oscar Robertson Hall of Fame Green Mosaic, Pete Maravich Hall of Fame, Joel Embiid, Spencer Dinwiddie.

Pack 6:

Trae Young Give and Go, Cam Reddish Rookie, Montrezl Harrell, Tristian Thompson.

Pack 7:

Rudy Gay Green Mosaic, Jordan Poole NBA Debut, Jae Crowder, Brook Lopez.

Pack 8:

Goga Bitadze, Russell Westbrook Got Game?, Dennis Schröder, DeAndre’ Bembry.

Grade: B-

This Blaster Box provides a lot of fun. While the value may not have been there, you can’t complain about opening a 2019-20 basketball prospect at the $2.50 a pack price. It would have been nice to pull a colored parallel (either a Silver or Green Mosaic) of a rookie, but getting the Hall of Fame Oscar Robertson Green Mosaic was nice pull. I’ve been working on picking up those cards and this happened to be one I had not yet picked up. I was happy to pull a nice Cam Reddish Rookie and Rookie Debut, as I think he has a nice chance to really take off next season. For the MSRP price I can’t complain at all about this break. However, if I paid the current eBay prices I’m sure that I would have a different outlook.
