Jeremy Lin Quarterly Subscription Box Review #LIN01
Jeremy Lin is one of the newest Quarterly curators, and this is the very first box in his subscription!
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Jeremy Lin Quarterly Box
The Cost: $75 a box (ships every quarter)
The Products: “Being Game Ready involves more than having the right sports gear. In my first mailing, I’m excited to share with you the items I use to be ready for a game – physically, spiritually and mentally.”
Good to know: Jeremy’s boxes benefit the Jeremy Lin Foundation.
Each box includes a letter from the curator detailing the items included. The theme for the first box:
I am often asked about my Game Day process and mentality, so I want to use this box to give you more insight into my Game Day preparation, mentality, and routines.
Adidas Originals Heritage Backpack – Retail Value $50 (On sale for $40)
I love the print of this backpack! It has a padded laptop compartment too.
Humility True Greatness by C.J. Mahaney – Retail Value $15 (On Amazon for $12)
From Lin’s letter:
I’ve included one of my favorite books that talk about one of the most underrated qualities of a person – humility.
Lin also annotated the book:
There are a lot of post-its in this!
POP Pumbaa – Value $10
We’re always excited to see a POP in a subscription box! This one has a very specific meaning to Lin, so I’ll quote his letter again:
Post-game is all about refueling. This year I’ve really gotten into cooking and I spent a lot of post-games in my kitchen cooking healthy post-game meals for my friends and family. I’ve included POP Pumbaa to represent these kitchen sessions. I love Pumbaa for his personality and his ability to eat. My close friends and family think I eat like Pumbaa (I also eat about double what my family and friends eat) so it’s fitting that I keep a Pumbaa in my kitchen. (Some of you might have already spotted Pumbaa in my kitchen in our All-Star Break video!)
Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups – Value $2
Wristband – Value?
Lin included Justin’s Dark Chocolate peanut butter cups since they are one of his favorite sweet snacks that are also healthier than the alternatives. And the wristband included was made just for this Quarterly mailing!
3 Player Cards – Value?
These are another Quarterly mailing exclusive – these are pictures from Lin’s high school days!
Verdict: After reading the letter, I can tell this is a very personal box for Lin, and I love that he included exclusives for subscribers in this box too. I think the retail value is close to the cost of the box, but adding in exclusives makes this much more appealing to Jeremy Lin fans. What do you think of #LIN01?
