Sports Cards and Stuff | This Week in the Stadium

Welcome to the Adventure Stadium Blog. I am your host, Samantha. We all know the sports have lost a great player this week and we are all saddened by the death of Dwayne Haskins. It was announced today that his memorial service will be held on the 22nd of April; our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, The Steeler Nation, Washington Commanders, and the Ohio State Buckeyes. We will all miss him. 

As the season opens for Baseball we have some amazing games and some great players to talk over. We all know that the world of Baseball is no place for the weak hearted, as the new Cleveland Guardians take on the Reds and win yesterday it was something no one saw coming. The Braves winning over the Nationals however is such a great game, even if it was a blow out. Let's not forget the Astros beating the Diamondbacks with a 2-1 score. Man, this season is shaping up to be a doozy. 

Don’t forget to come in the store and see all the new jerseys, cards, sealed boxes and even some breaks we have going on this month. Like this week we have two new products that came out. 

First is the 2021-2022 Panini Contenders Basketball Hobby Box- Break Average. It has 2 Autographs, @ base parallels and 8 inserts/ insert Parallels.Past and present NBA standouts are also slated for on-card autographs via Veteran Ticket. These autographs highlight some of the top 2021 NBA Draft picks. Parallels include 75th Anniversary (shown above), Cracked Ice Ticket and Championship Ticket. Look for short-printed License to Dominant and Permit to Dominant cards in Hobby boxes, as well. Inserts supply another eight cards per Hobby box. There are several Hobby-only options available, including Legendary Contenders, Lottery Tickets, MVP Contenders, Rookie of the Year Contenders, Suite Shots, and Superstar Die-Cut.
