Old School Box Break: 99-00 UD Encore

 
 So here's my most recent Old School Box Break. A box of 99-00 UD Encore. The 99-00 season was one of my favorite seasons ever thanks to Vinsanity. Vince Carter was on FIRE this season and it was the year of his EPIC dunk contest. I also remember really loving this draft class with Elton Brand, Steve Francis, and Shawn Marion leading the way. Decided to take a shot at this since there's always that super slim shot of MJ autographs or memorabilia. The odds are super long but I felt it was worth the gamble.

Overall Thoughts: Yikes..there's no way to spin this...even by 99-00 standards this was pretty brutal. There's plenty of inserts but they are all at easy odds so nothing really worthwhile there. The rookies were beyond brutal. I was hoping for at least one semi decent pull. I know Game Jerseys are impossible at the time, but I was hoping for at least a F/X Parallel, a MJ Higher Power insert..just something extra. Instead, it was a pretty by the numbers box break. Oh well, win some lose some! Here's some pics
