Topps 582 Montgomery Club & 1952 Bowman Baseball Card Pack Pins Arrived This Week

This is just a quick post to show-off my latest trade.  I was able to acquire a set of (3) Little League pins that look like packs of 1952 Bowman Baseball.  They’re large in size, but nowhere near as big as the 1954 Bowman Baseball pins I received not too long ago.  I made this trade through the Little League Pin Traders Club group on Facebook.  Very cool!

Members of the Topps 582 Montgomery Club began to receive their collectible pin this week too.

(3) 2020 Topps Series 1 Baseball Jumbo Pack Break

Today I took a trip to my local card shop – Sports Zone Toys & Comics.  Its a really nice shop.  Easy to get around and very well organized.  The main reason I went was to pickup a few plastic containers used for storing cards.  I left the shop with some containers, Bryce Harper bobblehead, Phillie Phanatic Super7 action figure, and (3) jumbo packs of 2020 Topps Series 1 Baseball.

Here are the results from the (3) jumbo packs.  It was a newly opened box with only a couple of packs purchased from it.  The store’s owner said no hits had been pulled yet.  FedEx just dropped off a 2020 Topps Series 1 Baseball hobby box which I’ll be working on next.

Sports Zone Toys & Comics is quite active on Facebook and YouTube.  Check them out!

2018-19 Fleer Hanes Michael Jordan 30th Anniversary Pack Break – Auto Pulled?

The most important decision of your life…

Nope.  No autograph here.  Falling at a rate of 1:108,625 packs, I really didn’t have a chance anyway.  It makes me wonder if anyone will pull one of the ten Michael Jordan autographs.  You have to think that lots of people are just throwing these packs away.  I hope at least one autograph surfaces.

The local Walmart here in Selinsgrove, PA had one Hanes product left that came with a pack of Michael Jordan cards.  It was a package of (7) t-shirts housing a red pack.  A complete base set consists of (50) cards with Red and Blue Foil parallels.  All-Star inserts which have Gold Foil parallels are also possible to pull.  Once I actually got my hands on them, I was surprised to see how thick the cards are.  I was expecting them to be thin and cheap.  Terrific marketing campaign.

Here’s what I got:

(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

(2) 2018 NSCC Topps Wrapper Redemption Pack Break

Upon taking my box of Museum Collection to the Topps booth during the 2018 National, I received (2) wrapper redemption packs in return.  Inside each pack are (4) exclusive Bowman Chrome cards.  Parallels and autographs could also be found.  Although I didn’t get any autographs, I did pull two nice parallels.  Take a look!
