Day #2 of the 35th National was a fun one. Then again, everyday at the National is fun. I participated in promos from Upper Deck and Topps, then took some time to check out some of the many dealers found outside of the Corporate Area. I even seemed to pull a little MOJO!
Here are the major highlights of the day for me.
Diamond Stars paintings of “Cards That Never Were” – Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig.
Van Mungo and Billy Werber Diamond Stars cards.
Frank Crosetti Diamond Stars.
1927 World Series (New York Yankees) Press Pin
1902 Pittsburgh Pirates National League Championship Lapel Pin
1992 Donruss Diamond Kings Supers. This auction house had a complete set on display. Only 10 sets are known to exist.
I purchased 15 packs of 2014 Topps Baseball and took them over to the Topps booth. In return I got 6 Allen & Ginter minis – (2) Jim Brown, Johnny Manziel, Mike Trout, Jadeveon Clowney, and Derek Jeter.
Upper Deck started their wrapper redemption program this morning at 10:25 a.m. Today’s promo cards were of Jack Nicklaus, Joc Pederson, Johnny Manziel, Archie Griffin, and Wayne Gretzky. I also got one of those Magic Johnson Amazon.com cards. Wait until you see what I got in the pack I needed to open in order to get these.
In order to get my Upper Deck wrapper redemption pack today, I decided to open a pack of 2014 Upper Deck SP Game-Used Edition Golf. Inside the pack was this Jack Nicklaus Inked Fabrics Shirt/Auto #’ed/10. I also pulled a Nancy Lopez Tour Gear Dual Shirt #’ed/35.
