Topps 2011 Mega Box

Has anyone popped any of these yet?

They look awesome.

5 packs of Update, 1 pack of Bowman Chrome, 1 Topps code, and 1 of 3 Bryce Harpers.


Happy Fathers Day!

This is my 1st Fathers Day as a proud parent myself. I was woke up to the smell of french toast …. mmm mmm. After sleeping in a little while longer I went into town and picked out my Fathers Day present. My wife and child knew I wanted some cards, but I was able to pick out which ones I wanted. I decided to go with a 2010 Bowman blaster box,  2010 Bowman rack pack, another 3-ring binder with 100 sheets, and a pack of 2008 Donruss Elite.

I wish that I had a scanner so that I could show off great picks of my good cards. I will have to pick one up soon enough, but for now here are some pics from my camera.

2008 Donruss Elite – Waste of money. I did pull a Joba Chamberlein, but not really my thing.

2008 Donruss Elite Extra Edition

2010 Bowman Rack Pack – Not too impressed with this pack either. I did get one Detroit Tigers Chrome and I got a Bryce Brentz card. The Bryce Brentz card alone was worth the pack to me. My son is named Bryce and I want to have a collection of Bryce cards for him for when he is grown up. I really wanted a Bryce Harper card, but this will work for sure.

2010 Bowman Rack pack. Bryce Harper?

2010 Bowman blaster box – Unwrapped the box and had a good feeling. Is this the box my Bryce Harper was going to come in? Is there a Strasburg? There are so many good Tigers’ rookies, but I need to get that Austin Jackson. I ended up getting a few great cards. Tigers Rc’s, but no Jackson 😦 Best card was a second Stephen Strasburg Chrome.  Also I opened a Orange J.A. Happ 116 / 250.

8 packs of 2010 Bowman. Top one had the Strasburg Chrome.

I have spent a fair amount of money on 2010 Bowman so far this season, but I have been fortunate so far. I have one Stephen Strasburg 1st Bowman card and 2 Strasburg Chromes. I have purchased a few blaster boxes for resale and almost doubled my money on those, so that has helped the recoup. Going to put some cards up for sale. Just doubles though as I am trying to complete the set for my Bryce Michael. The best Fathers Day present is him.

Thank you Stephen Strasburg!

No. 1 overall draft pick

Baseball card collecting has been pretty dead until the recent attention brought back onto the hobby through the Stephen Strasburg 1/1 eBay auction. I can not see that card adding value, but it was priceless for the hobby. $16,400+ for one card? Do you know how many great vintage cards that could have been bought for that amount? I wonder if I could purchase every Detroit Tiger card made in the last 50 or so years for that amount? I may have to check on that one. Nothing I have to worry about until I get the 1/1 Bryce Harper next year in that 2011 Bowman.
