My luck stinks when opening packs.  I have gone through cases of ginter and ginter x and the best I have pulled is a mini black.  LOL.  I just pay the price when I see a card I need, cheaper and I don't end up pissed off.   Smiley

that stinks dolph Sad

I was just thinking that yesterday; about how it's probably cheaper to just buy the cards we want rather than hunting.  But the hunt is fun  Cheesy  I found a print plate of blumstein in one of my hobby boxes last night  Cheesy

I found a printing plate as well (Ryder Jones) along with a cloth Johnny Bench and two metal  1/3 minis.  this was in just two hobby cases, so i think i did good.

You did great, anytime you pull a plate or metal mini's those are great cases.   What did the cases run you, I have seen them as high as 2100.00 a case

Frank (Lynx Art Frank) was nice enough to point me to blowout cards where they sold for 1,100 at the time.  They have since sold out completely.  Steel City sells them for the same price.

I bought a Ginter X case for 1400 with an ebay 10% off that i may flip if anyone is interested.

LOL!!! Smiley

Seriously though, I have contacted Topps to discuss the four 2018 cards that appear to have common relevance with each other and will post our discussion afterwards. 


Personally, I think you are 100% correct in the sense that these cards all have in common an historical relevance from the same year (2017). However, I am skeptical that they were intended to go together as some kind of sub-set collection.

I can easily picture the folks at Topps sitting around the table and asking, "OK, everyone. We've decided on which ball players will be in the upcoming 2018 A&G cards. We still have space for 34 non-baseball players. Any ideas? And let's not make them all people. How about a few non-human cards? C'mon, what do you got for me? We need ideas, people!" A person speaks up, "Umm, I did read an article about that new cryptocurrency, bitcoin, yesterday. Apparently, it was a really big deal last December. All over the news. Maybe something like that?" "Hmm...cryptocurrency. I like it! What else was all over the news in 2017?" Another person speaks up, "Well, let's see... We had that big solar eclipse. And there was that bomb cyclone too." "Alright! We've got some great ideas, so far — cryptocurrency, solar eclipse, bomb cyclone... Let's run with it."

As I said above, I can easily see the product development team in a conversation like that. However, I do not picture them saying, "Hey, let's make this a sub-set collection of historical event cards! People can collect all three and display them together!" Says another employee, "You mean 'collect all FOUR!' Don't forget the memo we got this morning about the Marine National Monument!"

But I admit... I could be wrong. In fact, I often am. Grin

I look forward to reading the reply from Topps. Thanks for reaching out to them, dolphriends.

Regards,
Me

I would like to hereby rescind any doubts that I previously may have voiced about the legitimacy of an intended Historic Event Collection. This change of mind probably has nothing to do with me pulling a #259 Bomb Cyclone GLOW mini card.

Thank you for your time.

Regards,
Me

They did indeed sell out.  But they're restocked. As of right now they have five more cases available Smiley

Just got word from PSA that my crypto mini gold parallel got a grade 10  Cool  Very excited about that; hoping my glow in the dark gets a 10 as well.

By the way, side note:

Do not send the 10x14 poster to them.  They cannot grade it.

I mailed mine in and got word today that it's going to be shipped back Sad  They said they do not have cases that large and unfortunately cannot grade it.  So heads up to anyone else who has the idea of sending it in like I did lol

This hobby is very, very addictive.  After finishing the case last night I wanted to order another  Wink

Had a lot of great pulls; several autos, one of which is the swim suit model you all talked about (framed mini, limited to 25 and numbered).  Also got two rip cards, one limited to 75 and the other to 50.  And at least 10 relics.  Also a silver glossy box which makes it the second silver glossy box I've found  Grin

One of my 2018 Topps Home Run Challenge cards from an A&G box showed Cody Bellinger on the front, but the online system matched the code on back with Bryce Harper. Since the player on the card is supposed to match the player in the online system, I emailed Topps to ask if they may have printed the wrong code onto my card. Topps replied this morning.

"Yes that is indeed an error with your Bellinger card."

While it probably doesn't make it worth more, it does satisfy my desire for "error" collectibles. Wink

Regards,
Chris

Awesome Chris.  Are these (the non error ones) rare at all?  I've pulled several of them; at least ten different players.  Was debating on if I should scratch them or just hang onto 'em.

One per box, I believe.

Hey bp, you should carouse the card forums to see if yours is a one off or if all the bellinger/harper cards are like this.  If you have a one off, you might certainly have a nice score there.  Worth a look

Just an fyi on the recent 1 of 10 5x7 cards I bought.  They sell relatively easily!  So far,  I've sold about 8 ranging from 50 dollars to 12 dollars.  I have a long way to go to recoup my initial investment, but assuming a 1/10 Cryptocurrency card is worth 300 bucks.  I hope to sell enough of the other cards to make it free or close to it.

People love the baseball legends - will Clark, George brett.  They also like Tommy wiseau, stugotz and the tennis players.

If you do buy a set, search for the topps referral link a member posted to save 10%.
