So, this weekend I busted my remaining four packs of my HTA box of Topps Series 1. Did I lose my nerve? No.
I read that the time to send in the wrappers for the wrapper redemption were most likely almost out. So I took a chance. I'm really not expecting to get a pack for my wrappers. I've never done a wrapper redemption before - I had no idea how rabid people would be to get their wrappers in.
So I busted my final four packs to get my last ditch effort of receiving an extra pack.
Either way, here's what I got in my last four packs. Some pretty good stuff actually.
Notable inserts were a Josh Hamilton die-cut, Warren Spahn Chasing History and Willie McCovey Chasing History.
But we've all seen the inserts, I'll just get right to the hits. Here's how the first pack started out:
But when I finally got to it, I was still pretty impressed with the card - even if the subject isn't pulling a ton on the secondary market.
It's seriously the thickest card I've ever pulled though. It's not heavy like the coin cards, but it's thick.
And for my auto in the box - the auto that made me think this box would've really been better off for a Braves fan - I pulled this beauty.
For a sticker auto product, it's still a pretty great looking card. And the auto is from an era where people still gave a damn about their signatures.
So that's it. I'll see if I can snag an extra pack - but I was very impressed with this product and with my box in general.
