Mail Day #4 - Auto's and Inserts

I've got some bigger things to post, but I wanted to do a quick pick up post here before I forget.  I have done some trading recently with some friends on Twitter and picked up a few cards from eBay.  None of the Twitter pickups are Cubs.  However, I did go to my LCS and picked up a couple packs of 2016 Topps Heritage Minor League and found a Rizzo I didn't have in my PC.

First up is an Andy Pettite from 2016 Bowman's Best, a Harold Baines auto /50 from 2016 Stadium Club, and an Anthony Rizzo /199 from 2013 Topps Archives.

  • The Pettite insert is awesome because they used the 1996 design.  I plan on picking up more of these.  
  • The Baines auto popped up on eBay for cheap, so I grabbed it for trade bait.
  • Lastly, the Rizzo my LCS had, so I grabbed it for the PC.

Next up I have a couple of Gypsy Queen autos of Trevor Cahill and Christian Yelich.

  • The Trevor Cahill auto goes to the 2016 Cubs  roster auto/relic collection I started.  Check the PC tab on the blog to see how that collection is going.
  • Christian Yelich was part of a twitter trade I had.  He is a good young player that I think I'll start collecting when I see his stuff for cheap.

Finally, the two packs of 2016 Heritage Minor Leagues didn't give me much.  I got a cool insert of Billy McKinney and a blue border parallel /99 of Osvaldo Abreu.


I'll add the Harold Baines auto to the for trade section of my blog.  More trade items will be added shortly, now that I'm organizing my cards.

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.

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!
