Merry Christmas all! As I wait for my daughter to awaken so we can start our Christmas festivities, I thought I would get this recap posted. It's been on my to-do list for a week but it kept getting pushed to the back. I apologize for the delay.
This was the largest break we ever did at The Card Swap and I was shocked at how fast it sold out. I thank everyone for that. This will not be the last Super Mixer. The next one is on the list to be planned for some time in January.
This featured 10 MLB Hobby Boxes and we were hunting for 20 autos, we got 21:
- 2018 Gallery
- 2018 Topps High Tek
- 2018 Bowman High Tek
- 2018 Archives
- 2018 Archives Snapshots
-2018 Topps Fire
- 2018 Clearly Authentic
- 2018 Topps Finest
- 2018 Allen & Ginter
- 2018 Gold Label
Take a look at the highlights!

This was a very fun break! Such an assortment of hits and numbered cards. I could have showed a lot more cards but didn't want this to be too long of a post.
It had been awhile since we pulled a Buehler Auto, good to see another one! Our Ginter box was a hot box but didn't deliver anything major out of it. I wish I would have used Gypsy Queen in this one, but it'll def go in the next one. The Archives box showed us a couple of retro autos including a really sweet Kevin Appier. The Cubs did well in this break with the Happ and Contreras Autos. There was a couple Trout numbered cards and it's always fun to pull a Beltre hit. This one was a bat relic. Snapshots gave us 2 autos instead of the promised 1. Our Eckstein was a gold border hand numbered 1/10. Very cool cards!
This was a tough break to grade. Easy to just give an A because of the volume of stuff we pulled. But I am going with a solid B+ for this one because though we pulled some nice autos and none of the boxes were "bad", we didn't pull a a true monster. A lot of quality cards, but it was missing that one card that made everyone say "wow"
