2013-14 Pinnacle Basketball blaster

Sport:  Basketball
Product:  2013-14 Pinnacle Basketball
Break Date:  March 5, 2014
Hit Breakdown:  one Artist's Proof per pack
Summary:  Pinnacle has grown on me, and I really didn't think it would. But, it seems to constantly be a fun low-end break. I hadn't bought a blaster yet, and figured it was time.

Across the board, it was a solid lot of cards; the highlight is definitely the Team Pinnacle Paul George/Paul Pierce Artist's Proof, which is a cool card. Not far behind would be the Kobe The Naturals.

If there is one gripe, it's collation. I pulled two Jeff Withey rookies, and while we haven't opened a lot of Pinnacle, the tally on Withey RCs now stands at four. If it was someone else - say, Michael Carter-Williams, the complaint wouldn't be as major, but no one needs four Withey rookies.
