I just can't sleep tonight. I originally woke up worrying about work and had to check in on my e-mail to stop my fretting. I tried watching The Boondocks (The MLK episode was on) but still wasn't sleepy. So I got online and started surfing Reddit. I found something completely unexpected posted there, this YouTube video:
I... don't know what to say about this. I don't normally make fun of YouTube breaks, but this is just... wow. On the one hand, I applaud the guy for ripping six dollar boxes of '86 Sportflics. That's pretty cool, I wish I had a six dollar box of Sportflics to rip. However, his encyclopedic knowledge of the 'book prices' of every card and his eagerness to sell them for full book (or wait twenty years for them to appreciate) is disturbing. The fact that 95% of the video of the break is a shot of his marble countertop doesn't help. I did learn that there is a Robin Yount with a Yankees logo error card in the '86 Sportflics set though so it was actually educational. The dude bought a CASE of Sportflics, so I'm sure there are/will be more of these videos. I would suggest to the Super Sportsflics fan that on the next video try to have less countertop and more wiggling of the cards in front of the camera so we can see the Sportsflics do their flicking. Really, that's what YouTube was made for.
