Topps 2017 Series 1

I purchased a few jumbo packs from my LCS last week.  Unfortunately, I didn't get any hits, but I got a few Cubs and solid inserts.

  • Kyle Schwarber and Jorge Soler base cards.
  • Chicago Cubs World Series champions card!
  • Kris Bryant and Kyle Hendricks League Leaders inserts.

  • Dansby Swanson rookie card!
  • Evan Longoria 5 Tool insert - cool looking insert.
  • A gold Shin-Soo Choo out of /2017.

  • These 1987 inserts are awesome.  Brings back fond memories of collecting this set as a kid.

After not getting any hits from the jumbo packs, I decided to hit up eBay and check out the autos for sale.  I ended up finding a Jim Abbott auto and an Addison Russell manufactured Jackie Robinson patch for cheap.




A few days later I jumped back on eBay and saw a couple of the 2017 Topps Hobby Silver Packs for an affordable price.  I grabbed both of those and pulled a Jose Altuve auto!  These are chrome versions of the 1987 inserts and look pretty nice.  I'm pretty happy with the players I received.



If you are interested in any of these, (minus the Cubs cards), let me know and we can work out a trade!

  1. You should hit up Daniel at "It's like having my own cardshop." I'm sure he would bite on the Goldschmidt.

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!
