Topps Gave Me a 1952 Topps Yogi Berra!

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

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!

    Very cool, I would much rather have that Berra in my collection that the Museum Collection box – great move and congratulations!

      Thank you very much! I hope to do this type of thing in the future when Topps series two comes out. Hopefully I will get something good that I can sell so I can buy a nice vintage card or two. 🙂

      Thanks for the comments! Yes, kudos to Topps for sending me such a nice box. It was very exhilarating to open knowing that I was guaranteed an autograph and some game used cards.
