Repack report

I recently picked up a 10 pack Fairfield repack. I'd never gotten one of these but I figured I'd give it a shot. Through the window on the front I could see that it contained a 2012 Topps Series 1 rack pack and a pack of 2006 Upper Deck Ovation. The rest was a mystery. I really didn't get much of anything interesting and halfway through ripping it occurred to me that Fairfield almost certainly actively pack searches. So I can already tell you I won't be buying any more of these. But here's what was inside.

It wouldn't be a repack without some junk wax. I fully expected at least a couple packs like this so I wasn't annoyed. And it is kinda fun to rip some genuine wax packs that are over 20 years old even if the cards inside are worthless.

2006 Upper Deck Ovation retail pack

I really liked this pack. Cool looking set with the cards being stamped to give them texture. I checked and a hobby box of this can be had for pretty cheap. maybe I'll order one sometime. Looks like it could be a fun box break.

2012 Topps Opening Day retail pack

I normally don't buy Opening Day but I really like the look of this insert set.

2012 Topps Series 1 rack pack

Interestingly this rack pack did not contain any colored parallels. So I am assuming that it didn't come from Wal-mart, Target or Toys r Us. I didn't realize these were sold anywhere else. Walgreens maybe?

2012 Topps Chrome retail pack

I was surprised to see this pack in there. Such great looking cards.

The repack also contained a 2011 Topps Series 2 and 2012 Topps update Series pack. Neither one contained anything worth showing.

There was also one last pack that I will devote a post to later.

Overall the repack was very ehhh. The UD Ovation and Topps Chrome packs were definitely the best part. But Fairfield won't be getting anymore of my business.
