2016 Topps Archives 65th Anniversary Box

I finally saw one of these boxes sitting at Wal-Mart and picked one up.  For the price I couldn't complain about getting a guaranteed autograph, although I don't have high expectations for pulling a big name player.


As you can see, these cards are reprints of other cards.  I took a picture of the back and put it down further below.  There are a few cool reprint cards in here, but nothing mind blowing.  Topps has reprinted some of these cards as "inserts" the past few years.






For my auto I got Scott Hatteberg.  The only reason I recognize this name is from the scene in Moneyball when he hits a walk off homerun to extend the A's winning streak. lol


I'll throw this onto the trade pile for anyone interested.  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. A reprint of a 2016 card issued in 2016. (Seager). That is pretty dumb.

  2. I wouldn't mind picking up one of these boxes if I came across one that was discount, but the guaranteed auto is not enough of a lure for me to pull the trigger on such a small number of cards.

    1. Yeah, I would say wait for it to go on clearance. Or just save the $20 and put it towards the card you want on eBay from the set. Lol

The Loot Locker

The Loot Locker is a $20 monthly subscription service that sends you hobby packs of sports or movie/tv cards.  You can choose between baseball, football, basketball, hockey and the new movie/tv boxes.  I purchased a single baseball box from September.

The box it comes in is a 400 card storage box (nice touch) and inside it had 4 hobby packs of cards, toploaders, penny sleeves, team packs and some bonus candy.  If you are lucky you can get an upgrade to your box with bonus packs of cards or hits.  I was fortunate this time to get an upgrade which you will see at the bottom of the post.  I don't want to spoil it, but I was pretty happy with it.

The packs for September were 2 Donruss Optic, 1 Bowman Chrome and 1 Diamond Kings.


I didn't get anything interesting from Diamond Kings or Bowman Chrome, but my second pack of Donruss Optic had a really nice hit.  I pulled a redemption for a Raul Mondesi Rated Rookies 1987 Retro Signatures Gold /5!  If you haven't seen any of the retr…

Walgreens MLB Jumbo Value Box

Walgreens has these 100 card value re-pack boxes of baseball and football cards for $4.99.  It says on the box there is a hit in every fourth box, so I figured why not take a shot.  After sifting through the cards here are the ones I liked the most.

Check out the awesome Kent Tekulve!  I'm gonna have to start a PC for him ASAP.


Yu Darvish, Dwight Gooden, Darryl Strawberry and Steve Avery.

An Ozzie Smith, Stan Musial and Jose Canseco/Terry Steinbach/Mark McGwire combo card.

Lastly, Ryne Sandberg and Kerry Wood cards I didn't have in my PC!  I also got a hit!  An autograph of Miguel Negron 95/100.  Doesn't look like he ever made it to the majors, but it's nice to get a "hit". lol

As it turns out, this was a really fun box I picked up that had some cool cards to add to my PC.

Sports Card Collectors Contest Win!

I have entered a few contests on Sports Card Collectors blog and last week I won!  The card I won is a Topps 2016 Olympic autographed card of Holley Mangold.  What's awesome about this card is this is the Gold auto version numbered 14/15.  It's a really tough pull, but thanks to Sports Card Collectors I can add this to my personal collection.  Thanks again for the contest and be sure to visit the Sports Card Collectors website to enter more contests that are currently running!
