Topps 2017 Heritage Blaster Box

Topps Heritage is a product I enjoy getting every year.  The throwback designs are fun to collect, even though it's tough to get a hit in this series, in my opinion.  I picked up the last blaster from my local Target on Friday.  I had my fingers crossed for a relic at best, but what I got is pretty good.

First up are the Cubs I got from my blaster.  The back of the Rizzo card is part of a picture puzzle.  I'm gonna try and track down the rest of it.



Here are the other fun cards I had in the box.



My favorite inserts are the Game cards.



And lastly, the best card in the box is a Madison Bumgarner Blue Chrome Refractor 51/68.



I've checked my box of cards at least 5 times to see if I got an error card, color swap, flip back, etc, but it doesn't look like I got any of those.  Overall this years design is one that I really like.  The downside is that there are so many variations that it can be overwhelming if you don't do your research.  I'm hoping Topps goes back to fewer variations in next years release.

  1. I echo your thoughts on fewer variations. It's becoming a headache to be a collector! :p

    1. Yeah, I could still have some sort of variation, but I just got tired of looking through the 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.

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!
