With one night sleep to go before the official release of series 2 AFL, everyone is anxious to start busting.

If you are like us and love your footy and cannot wait, here is sneak peak of 2017 Select Certified Football, reviewed by none other than Mr AFL himself MOJOKING.

To quote MOJOKING – “Anticipation has been high for this release and it won’t let you down. Best release ever”.

So  sit back and enjoy the first box break, thank to Select Australia.

If you are a vivid Pop! Vinyl collector like us on Gimko then having the right protection to ensure that your collection stays mint is ESSENTIAL. This is why we have done extensive testing on what is out there currently on the market, and to put it quit frankly, we were not happy at the quality of protection.

With extensive effort talking to collectors who buy Pop! Vinyls, we asked the the simple question of what they were looking for? Their response was something that is affordable and as durable like an expensive hard box protector but as flexible to store in large amounts as a Ultra Pro protector which did not break as easily.

The solution to this was to create a high quality plastic semi-ridged fold-able protector that met these requirements.

If you know what a Pop! Protector is and are looking to buy some for your existing collection, then visit our official online store.

Well folks it was bound to happen sooner or later! NRL was the very first break listed on Gimko.

The original home and pioneer of NRL breaks just keeps on delivering the MOJO to our loyal collectors!!

When the news was out that ESP were releasing four 1 of 1 cards in this years 2016 NRL Elite, the hunt was on.

Tonight we were blessed with the best case possibly out there.

The break delivered beyond our wildest imaginations:

  • Ruby Mojo Pack – Penrith #34/40
  • Sapphire Mojo Pack – Dragons #6/20
  • Redemption Signature Game used Memorabilia Card – Broncos #44/50
  • Redemption Game used Memorabilia Card – Rabbitohs #62/150

At this point the break is sounding pretty darn good right?

Well there was more to come that would make this the NRL case break that tops them all.
