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.

    1. Cool, I'll send him a message. Thanks!
