(2) 2020 Onyx Vintage Extended Edition Baseball Box Break & Review

Here we go! Round #3 of the 2020 Onyx Vintage baseball card line.

First we had Onyx Vintage. Second came Onyx Vintage Premium. Now we’re on to Onyx Vintage Extended Edition.

2020 Onyx Vintage Extended Edition is setup much like previous versions. Each box comes with (4) cards, (2) of which will be autographed. All autographs are signed on-card.

Browsing over the checklist you can clearly see this product mainly focuses on rookies and prospects. Of all the players on the checklist, Pete Alonso has the most MLB experience. Luis Robert, Cristian Pache, and Spencer Howard are a few other names that stick out to me who made their MLB debut this year.

Additional key signers include Spencer Torkelson and Austin Martin who were the #1 and #2 picks in the 2020 MLB Draft.

Onyx was even able to get two highly anticipated international prospects to sign cards as well – Felnin Celesten and Roderick Arias. Arias can’t sign with an MLB team until 2021, and Celesten has to wait until 2022. These are early autographs of two guys who we should be hearing a lot more about in the future.

At the base level are the Blue Ink autographs #’ed/275. Other parallels include Green Ink #’ed/50, Red Ink #’ed/25, Purple Ink #’ed/10 (sold exclusively online), and Black Ink #’ed/5. Full name/inscription autographs can also be found and vary in numbering.

Onyx makes a nice product. Retro style, on-card autographs, not a lot of base cards, and quite affordable. Box prices have been through the roof this year. 2020 Onyx Vintage Extended Edition’s price is just under $40/box. Very reasonable.

Here is what I pulled:

Autos:

  • Riley Greene Blue Ink #’ed/275
  • Jorge Ona Blue Ink #’ed/275
  • Ronny Mauricio Blue Ink #’ed/275
  • Seuly Matias Blue Ink #’ed/275

Base:

  • Carmen Mlodzinski
  • Yusniel Diaz
  • Carlos Colmenarez
  • Omar Estevez

2020 Onyx Vintage Premium Baseball Box Break & Review

What’s this?  Another baseball card product from Onyx?  You bet!

Earlier this year collectors received a glance of 2020 Onyx Vintage Premium Baseball in the form of short-printed inserts found in 2020 Onyx Vintage Baseball.  Now the high-end inserts have a set all to their own.

This product is setup similarly to 2020 Onyx Vintage Baseball.  A box of the Premium version comes with (3) cards.  One of which will be signed on-card.  Production of the Premium set is much lower, coming in at around (100) cases.  The cards are of higher quality too as they’re printed on thicker stock.

Looking at the checklist you’ll notice its relatively small.  The base set consists of (34) cards, while the autograph checklist stands at (31) cards.  Subjects range from top minor league prospects, 2020 MLB rookies, and Hall of Famers.  Even popular prospects such as Carlos Colmenarez and Cristian Hernandez have autographs in here.

Every year there comes a new batch of “must have” prospects.  The real big one for 2020 is Jasson Dominguez who is in the Yankees organization.  I’m happy to say that 2020 Onyx Vintage Premium has autographs of him via redemption.  According to Onyx, they have them in hand and are ready to ship upon being redeemed.

The on-card autographs really look nice.  Various ink colors indicate rarity – Blue #’ed/90 or less, Green #’ed/20 or less, Red #’ed/10 or less, and Black #’ed 1/1.  Its also possible to find full-name and nickname inscriptions as well.

Fun rip!

Here is what I pulled:

Auto

  • Luis Patino Green Ink Auto #’ed/20

Base

  • Ronny Mauricio
  • Alexander Canario

(2) 2020 Onyx Vintage Baseball Hobby Box Break & Review

Onyx Vintage Baseball makes it’s return for a second year in a row.  The 2020 version packs even a bigger punch compared to the 2019 set.  Upon viewing the checklist you’ll notice the main focus is on rookies and prospects.  But current stars, retired players, and even Hall of Famers can be found.

Packaged inside each hobby box is (1) pack.  That (1) pack contains (4) cards – (2) on-card autographs and (2) base.  Very quick and to the point.

The base set consists of (32) cards – Wander Franco, Gleyber Torres, Nolan Ryan, etc…

Autographs come in a variety of parallels – Base Blue Ink #’ed/200, Green Ink #’ed/50, Red Ink #’ed/25, and Black Ink #’ed/5.  I think its important to note that these cards don’t have the actual serial numbers stamped on them.  Please be aware of the signature’s ink color before selling, trading, or buying.

Ichiro Suzuki, Randy Johnson, and Nolan Ryan are each Blue Ink Autograph Short Prints.

Ornate-looking prospect and rookie autographs offer a more difficult pull.  Blue Ink versions of these are #’ed/30.  Parallels include Green Ink #’ed/15, Red Ink #’ed/5, and Black Ink #’ed 1/1.

(24) boxes come in a case.  As an interesting case-hit, one of those boxes will contain a redemption for a graded rookie card from the past.  So far I’ve seen rookies pulled of Randy Johnson, Kirby Puckett, Tony Gwynn, and Bert Blyleven.

Only about $50 per box.

A high-end version called Onyx Premium Vintage is scheduled to release this summer.  Thicker card stock.  More on-card autographs.  New signers.

In 2019 Onyx teamed-up with Futera to bring collectors Onyx/Futera Unique Prospects & Legends.  Collaborations like this don’t happen very often in the hobby today.  2020 sees Onyx working with Super Break.  Inside Super Break’s 2020 Deluxe Edition Baseball there are special Onyx Vintage autograph parallels.  Wander Franco, Gleyber Torres, and Ronald Acuña Jr. are the autograph subjects.  Each has a version #’ed/10, #’ed/5, and a 1/1.

  • Mason Martin Green Ink #’ed/50
  • Ronny Mauricio Blue Ink #’ed/200
  • Jean Casanova Blue Ink #’ed/200
