Topps Redemption Mail Day!

Just a quick follow-up to my 2014 Topps Platinum Football Retail Value Pack Case Break post from about 2 weeks ago. If you read that post, you’ll know that we pulled several redemption cards from the case. I entered them the day after we busted the case and they’ve already arrived today. Not bad service from Topps there.


So the cards are a Veteran Auto Patch of Ryan Mathews numbered 100/172, a Rookie Refractor Auto of Devin Street, a Rookie Patch Auto of Aaron Donald and a Rookie Patch Auto of Jeremy Hill. Donald and Hill are both promising players, so I was happy to see that those had been signed and would be available for shipping. I was even more happy when I opened the bubble mailer today and saw the patches on those two. 3-color on Donald and the Nike swoosh on the Hill. Topps hooked me up on the patches.

I can’t remember having a retail case break this good in a long time. I was happy enough hitting that Odell Beckham gold auto and the other cards detailed in the previous post, but getting these today made it that much better.


Amazing Michael Jordan auction on eBay

April 19, 2009 Leave a comment

Only a select group of collectors would have the money to even consider winning this auction but it’s nice to dream. Three of Jordan’s major early releases are offered and all graded PSA 10.

1985 Nike PSA 10
1986 Fleer PSA 10
1986 Fleer Sticker PSA 10

If that’s not enough, there’s an Upper Deck Authenticated 8×10 photo and three more PSA 10’s (overproduced Hoops and Skybox cards).

The only major early release missing is Jordan’s 84-85 Star Co. rookie. Those are very tough to find in nice shape but I’m sure whoever wins this will be looking for one to complete the package.

The seller has listed this twice, once for $9,999 and once for $9,799. No takers on those. The auction ends 8 hours from now and it’s at an even $6,000.
