Brothers in cards recently got to sit down with Purdue Quarterback David Blough and rip some packs. A younger Blough was a collector himself, in the video he talks about that, the Manning family and much more.

Now adays you hear and read more about hobby shops closing than opening but for collectors in the Noblesville area its just the opposite. Welcome to the downtown square, Bruno’s Shoebox located inside Moonshot Games at 50 N. 9th street in Noblesville. The shoebox mostly deals in vintage sports cards and memorabilia and if you think you may recognize the owner behind the counter, you probably do. Owner, Conrad Brunner has been a sports journalist for 40 years, covering the Pacers and Colts for the IndyStar and 1070 the Fan.

The store is open Tuesday – Saturday 10 to 6.

It’s the rarest, highest graded, and most valuable football card collection in the world and this weekend fans will be able to see it on display at the Football Hall of Fame.  The Hunt/Casterline football collection is a one of a kind collection

Football Hall of Fame

Football Hall of Fame

put together by Robert Casterline and business partner Dan Hunt, it includes a Rookie card of every member in the football Hall of Fame and shows no sign of completion.

“This collection is going to grow,” explained Casterline. “Every year there is going to be new Hall of Fame players. The thing that is organic about this collection, it can grow for the next 500, 5000 years. Hopefully my children will take up the cause.”

The card exhibition is the first thing you see as you walk in the doors, as its set up in the hall’s exhibit gallery located adjacent to the museum’s grand entrance. The exhibit is free with paid admission to the Hall of Fame. For a complete schedule of Hall of Fame events click here.

Below is what was a year long project, not a lot of money was put into it, but will have some fun ripping these 50 packs on Thursday. I haven’t decided yet if this will continue next year or not, but here’s a list of some of what was pulled.


What is Operations Open-A-Pack? Well it goes back to a few years ago, a fellow collector would not open any thing he bought from November till Christmas, and then he would open it all on Christmas Day. This would include Ebay buys, Blasters, and Hobby boxes, including a annual trip to the November Sun-Time Show. In one way a great idea tons of pack to rip open, right? But I could never walk out of that Sun-Time Show boxes, yes boxes in hand not to open anything for a month, no way no how. So I’m taking his idea and putting a spin on it. Starting back on January 1st, almost every box – blaster and hobby box that I open, I’m putting 1 pack aside and will open all the packs on Christmas. Below is the list of what the box holds.
