(3) 2018 Leaf Holiday Bonus Pack Break

As I mentioned yesterday, purchasing a box of 2018 Leaf Valiant Football from Atlanta Sports Cards qualified me for (3) 2018 Leaf Holiday Bonus Packs.  Inside each pack is (1) autograph, relic, or printing plate.  Some of the cards are specially made for these packs.  Others are just old inventory they want to get rid of.

During the 2018 National Sports Collectors Convention I pulled out this Babe Ruth/Shohei Ohtani dual relic #’ed 1/1 from a box of 2018 Leaf In The Game Used Sports.  It wouldn’t surprise me if the printing plates used to make that card end up in these packs someday.

Here is what I pulled:

  • Johnny Manziel 2018 Leaf Happy Holidays Auto
  • Mario Lemieux/Jaromir Jagr 2017-18 Leaf In The Game Used Hockey Dynamic Duos Black Printing Plate #’ed 1/1
  • Shinobu Asagoe 2005 Ace Authentic Signature Series Relic #’ed/500

The 2018 National – Day #3

My third and final day of the 2018 National Sports Collectors Convention has come to an end.  I spent most of it browsing the show floor and taking pictures of all the amazing items.

The first stop I made was to Chicagoland Sports Cards where I had them open a new case of 2018 Leaf In The Game Used Sports.  I chose the box on the upper left corner.  Boy did I pick a good one.  One of my hits is a Babe Ruth/Shohei Ohtani dual relic #’ed 1/1!!!  Like I mentioned earlier, I’ll go into full details about what came out of my boxes I bought in Cleveland once I get home.  The scans will look nice.

At 5:30 p.m. Topps held their Q&A session.  This was the first time I had ever attended one of these meetings.  It was fun and educating to hear collector’s questions and concerns.  Only (150) spots were available for this meeting.  Everyone that attended the meeting received a specially made Francisco Lindor autograph #’ed/50.  Not every card uses the same photo of Francisco Lindor either.  At least (3) different photos were used.  Here is a video of the entire Q&A courtesy of Sports Card News/Sports Card Radio.

Every collector should be able to attended at least one National.  No show gets better than this.  I’ll be heading home on Saturday.  I’ve got a feeling the weekend will be very crowded.

This show was a blast.  I got to meet some awesome people, take great pictures, get some autographs, and pull some cool cards.
