Here's something that is pretty interesting. I recently won a box of Topps cards for being called a "lucky tweeter" by Topps on Twitter. Although I had no idea what they were going to send, I was hoping for either a box of 2014 Topps Series One or 2014 Topps Heritage. I was completely surprised when this showed up at my door....
A box of 2014 Topps Museum Collection! I've never opened a full box of a higher end product so I was excited to rip into this. These boxes consist of four packs and packs generally sell for $50 each at hobby stores. I went ahead and opened the entire box and decided to list every card on eBay.
Here are the results of the eBay auctions I listed:
Lot of (3) Copper Parallels: $2.04
Canvas Collection Jimmy Foxx: $1.25
Autograph Todd Frazier 064/399: $5.24
Lot of (11) Base Cards: $6.55
Autograph Dual Relic Taijuan Walker 151/299: $6.75
Quad Relic Alex Rodriguez 83/99: $12.23
Green Parallel Willie Mays 158/199: $8.25
Dual Jumbo Relic Troy Tulowitzki/Carlos Gonzalez 3/5: $56.00
The total of all of these auctions ended up totaling $98.31. I decided to take this money and buy one card for my vintage set collection. After a lot of thinking, I decided to buy this beauty:
I ended up paying a total of $110 for this card so after selling the cards that Topps gave me, my total cost for this card was only $11.69. This is one of my favorite cards and glad I got such a great deal on it!
So, thank you Topps, for practically giving me a 1952 Topps Yogi Berra! Let me know when you are ready to give me the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle!
