Video Post: Trade Packages, Box Break, and Other Goodies

Here is another video of some TCDB trade packages and a Hobby Legends Topps Series 2 break. I am pjdionne12 on Trading Card Database if you want to trade!

Here is a better view of my Topps Home Run Challenge winning cards. There is a lot of talk about the numbering and a lot of people are claiming to be owed cards beyond the numbers that have been printed. I am awaiting a public response from Topps. Should be interesting and I am a little leery of moving these until I find out what the numbering issue is and how it will effect the market on these. Leave it to Topps to screw up something relatively simple. These are available for sale or trade for other winners of Hoskins, Soto, or Arenado.

Bought a pack of minor league at the LCS while picking up penny sleeves. This was the only interesting card. 

Retail blaster of series 2.

A couple of Meijer packs gave me these.

I'm working on one of these things I've seen people do.

VIDEO POST: 2019 Topps Home Run Challenge WINNERS April/May! Harper, Torres, Ohtani, Sanchez


It would seem I recieved my 2019 Home Run Challenge winners for April and May well before some other collectors. Not sure why, but a few have reached out angrily wondering how I have mine in hand when theirs say "processing" still. Sorry, no idea. Above is a quick unboxing of my package from Topps, an Ebay box break I was in for Topps Finest, and a Trading Card Database trade package. All Home Run Challenge cards are available for purchase as I am in need of funds for the National.

Tigers Game and More Cracked Bat Goodies!

Julie from A Cracked Bat blog sent me so much stuff I am still only a small percentage through it all. Here are some more pictures of goodies.

Tigers Game 6/6 Tigers vs. Rays

Took advantage of the Tigers' midweek deals and hit a ballgame with my buddy's family. The game was meh but Nolan had a blast meeting Paws, riding rides and hanging with his friend. 

Finest Break

I bought into another Ebay case break. This time Topps Finest was the product and I had Tigers and Rangers. Nolan Ryan has a few (very few) autos in the product so I took a chance. I hit a Stewie auto /150 but no other hits. Excited to get this auto in hand. Breaker was Black Bog Breakers and they were good. 

MLB Network Topps Home Run Challenge Help

I caught a quick glimpse of this on MLB Central and thought it was really cool. BUT, they were giving picks for the day of. If you have the actual cards you have to put them in the day before your date choice. It would be nice if they chose the day before so you could use their input. I am contemplating doing a weekly post either on here or twitter giving my picks for who would be a good choice on certain days and the tips and tricks I have for success. Who knows if I will put it together with my busy schedule.
