Meet the newest addition to the Hall! Willie Mays, Ken Griffey Jr, and Mike Trout Triple Relic from 2022 Triple Threads. Numbered 4/9. A great addition going to Andy's collection.
Visit the Hall of Hits to see more of the monster pulls we've had!
Did you see the changes for the 2023 Topps flagship variations?
Wanna check out some highlights from our 3 Gold Label Breaks? Here's a preview of one monster we saw. If only it wasn't a redemption. Congrats to John for getting this one! Gold Label was good to us this year, which was a nice surprise. Picture linked to full highlights.
Check out what AI thinks are the best Topps designs. Spoiler, there's a couple errors.
Help us name the BOT!
Some great additions to the Manny Machado Super PC to get the new total to 1499 different Mannys! I would have been over 1500 but I bought 2 that I already had. Not to mention I ordered the same card twice on the same order from COMC. :-)
Added some nice parallels to the Topps Flagship binder which is always fun for me.
Love the Black and White Mini Diamond Refractor from Chrome Platinum. More parallels and refractors. Those get the Numbered Card total to 408.
This was supposed to be the #1500 milestone card, but it didn't quite work out that way. Color Match Auto On Card Auto. Love this one. This makes auto #32. Thanks Nick!
Here's some stuff I've been checking for on eBay. Photos take you to current listings.
A beautiful card that would look great in any PC. After watching him in the WBC again, it seemed like a perfect addition and is quite affordable compared to lots of other stuff out there.
Baseball's #1 Draft Pick had some nice autos out of Bowman's Best, including this sweet on card insert auto.
I really liked these Primordial Inserts, and they come in a gold parallel out of 50. Bowman Inception in gold is one of my favorite parallels. Add it to the Primordial background and this is just a great set to find someone to stash.
We always love seeing players holding a ball from another sport. Here's MJ with a soccer ball. I love finding stuff from the 90's that I either forgot or never saw to begin with.
Another 90's find. Want a fun set to look through? Check out the 1996 Topps Laser set. It's full of next level "die-cut" designs. There's a Jeter rookie and more on a stacked checklist.
One favor to ask, if you use eBay for purchasing. Please bookmark this link for when you search and I will get a small commission from eBay. Doesn't charge anything extra for your purchase but will be an easy way to support the site. THANK YOU!
