Strasburg Heritage = Obtained

The biggest promotional giveaway during this year’s National has to have been the Stephen Strasburg 2010 Topps Heritage RC #’ed/999.  It took me two days to try and get into this line.  Topps had a posted schedule of when they planned to give out these cards, and most of the time people lined up two hours ahead of schedule.  Friday I hovered around the general area where collectors were suppose to line up.  When they said you could get in line, it was a mad rush and I’m sure I ran over a few toes.  I had never seen such a rush for a promo.  Luckily I was able to get one.

#’ed 294/999

Ever see the movie 300?  This is what it was like when they said you could get in line for the Strasburg promo.

The Strasburg 2010 Topps Heritage RC was the hardest promo to obtain in my opinion.  For the first time, I got the idea of what it was like collecting during the early 90’s while attending a National.  Promos are always a big draw, but this was insane.  Some other promos I got include a bunch of Elite cards from Panini such as Brett Favre, John Wall, and Jimmy Clausen all numbered to 499.   Plus I got all the promos that came included inside the VIP packages.

I also pulled some great cards too.  From a box of Ultimate Collection Baseball I pulled a Yankee eight way jersey #’ed/20.  Wednesday I tried my first box of Sportkings and pulled a Joe Greene / Mario Lemieux dual jersey.  LOTS OF GOOD STUFF!!!!!
