2022 Panini Mosaic Blaster!

A little interesting one today. I've never actually seen any of these in the wild...the discount Walmart blaster. So, while I wouldn't normally jump on a Panini baseball product, I figured the price was right to give it a chance.

Let's see how this went.

Here's the box. And, I was telling the truth. It's apparently more than 50% off regular price. Not a bad deal at all.

Here's the Red Sox card I got. Typical Panini product. Generic design, and super shiny. But, a fun little card.

With no other Red Sox cards, how about some former Red Sox? This insert card of Mookie Betts is fun. I have to admire Panini committing to the theme with the "hot". I'm just not sure why the theme is there. Is Mooke "hot sauce"? Does he like "hot sauce"? But, it has the actual hot pepper and two types of flames, and the shiny graphics.

And here's a card with no Red Sox connection, other than the Braves aspect. But, this one is super-duper shiny, which is interesting.

And there you have it. One Red Sox card, and a couple others. Thank goodness the blaster was cheap. Because it certainly didn't produce a big return. But, still a lot of fun to open.

How did your box go?

  1. It's been so long since I've seen discounted retail blasters/packs, I thought they stopped in like 2018. The 'sale' price is probably the most I'd be willing to pay for Panini (baseball) but at least you got a couple nice cards here.
