The base set consists of (100) cards. Parallels include Copper, Sapphire #’ed/150, Amethyst #’ed/99, Ruby #’ed/50, and Emerald #’ed 1/1.

Autographs include Archival Autographs, Atelier Autographed Book, Museum Framed Autographs, Superstar Showpieces, Dual On-Card Autographs, Triple On-Card Autographs, and Canvas Collection Original Player Autographs.

Atelier Autographed Books are new for 2021, and came out nice. These contain two large photos of that player’s home stadium. As a Phillies fan I’d like to see what the Bryce Harper and Rhys Hoskins books look like. FYI – the word “atelier” means a workshop or studio, especially one used by an artist or designer.

2020/21 Topps UEFA Champions League Museum Collection Soccer Hobby Box Break & Review

Collector Type: UEFA Fans/Autograph/Relic/Risk Takers

Look what I got my hands on. Its a box of 2020/21 Topps UEFA Champions League Museum Collection Soccer. This is by far the most expensive box of cards I’ve ever opened. Boxes are currently listed for $525.

Quite the quick and expensive break. Inside each box you’ll find (1) pack. Each pack contains (8) cards – (3) base, (2) parallels, (1) autograph, (1) autograph/relic, and (1) relic.

The base set consists of (75) cards. Parallels include Copper #’ed/99, Sapphire #’ed/75, Gold #’ed/50, Ruby #’ed/25, and Emerald #’ed 1/1.

Autographs include Archival Autographs, Archival Dual Autographs, Framed Autographs, and Lore of the League Autographs.

Autograph/Relics include Museum Autograph Relics, Museum Autograph Jumbo Relics, Museum Framed Autograph Patch, and Single Player Triple Relics Autographs.

Relics include Meaningful Material Single Relics, Momentous Material Jumbo Relics, Momentous Material Prime Patch Relics, Single Player Triple Relics, and Triple Player Team Crest Relics.

If you’ve opened this product before, the 2020/21 version should feel familiar. At $525 you’re taking a massive risk. However, if you pull one of those major hits it will pay off immensely. Like a lot of high-end products, busting by the case or joining a group break may yield better results.

With rookies such as Eduardo Camavinga, Pedri, and Edouard Mendy it gets me really excited for 2020/21 Topps Chrome UEFA Champions League Sapphire Edition.

2020 Topps Museum Collection Baseball Box Break

Topps National Baseball Card Day took place on Saturday, August 8.  I’ve been wanting to visit my local card shop Sports Zone Toys & Comics for awhile, and saw this as a good opportunity.  Just for walking in the door I received a Pete Alonso promo card.

I dove right into the high-end stuff and decided to bust a box of 2020 Topps Museum Collection Baseball.  A master box comes with (4) packs, each containing a hit.  Products configured like this have always appealed to me.  I don’t need a lot of base cards.

It was a solid box in my opinion.  A purchase of $10 or more got me a promo pack of 2020 Topps National Baseball Card Day cards.

Here is what I pulled:

Autos

  • Sean Murphy Archival Autographs #’ed/299
  • Kyle Hendricks Archival Autographs #’ed/299

Auto/Relics

  • Marcell Ozuna Single Player Signature Swatches Triple Relic Auto #’ed/299
  • Aaron Nola Momentous Material Jumbo Patch Auto #’ed/15

Parallels

  • Javier Baez Ruby #’ed/50
  • Cal Ripken Jr. Amethyst #’ed/99
  • Manny Machado Copper

Pin Highlight: Taber Museum – The Haunted Portrait Of Nellie Tallman – 2019 Little League Pin

The 2019 Little League World Series is right around the corner.  Its only a matter of time until visitors from all over the world flood Williamsport, PA and the surrounding areas.  Along with them will come tons and tons of Little League pins to buy, sell, and trade.

Little League’s official store has already begun selling pins for the 2019 games.  Even some of the pins made by the local businesses have started to surface.  Pins from Legal Insites, Tebbs Farms, and the Taber Museum have all been spotted.  Many more are on the way.

The Thomas T. Taber Museum of the Lycoming County Historical Society showcases artifacts that pertain to the region’s local history.  Each time I attend a Williamsport Crosscutters game I drive past it.  You can’t miss it, because of the lumberjack statue standing outside.

Pins sold by the Taber Museum usually mix baseball with local history.  Their 2019 pin focuses on the haunted portrait of Nellie Tallman.  When Nellie Tallman was 3-1/2 years old her father, an artist, decided to paint a portrait of his daughter.  What should have been a nice father daughter moment quickly turned tragic.  Little Nellie fell out of her high chair, and broke her neck resulting in her death.

John Tallman completed the portrait.  Shortly thereafter something strange began to happen.  The framed piece kept falling off of the wall.  Eventually it was donated to the Taber Museum.  While there, it fell multiple times as well.  To this day Nellie Tallman’s portrait hangs in the Taber Museum across from a painting by her father’s teacher, Severin Roesen.  It seems to have found peace there… for now.  I wouldn’t move it.  Many believe her spirit is attached to that portrait.

Cool or creepy?  Possibly the scariest Little League pin ever made.
