Thanks For a Successful 2014 Topps Series 1 Charity Case Break!

All cards have been pulled, sorted, organized, packed and shipped off to their final destinations. It was yet another fun and successful time and it certainly reaffirms my enjoyment of this hobby. Let’s be honest, though. My breaks are a lot more entertaining when my wife is around. I’m pretty sure having her there during future breaks will be a necessity.

Personally speaking, I was very satisfied with the case we got. It was very well-rounded with little disparity in quantity of cards per team (with the exception of a few teams like the Red Sox)–I even got a fair amount of Astros and Twins–and a good sampling of different types of inserts and hits. In fact, one of the biggest hits I’ve ever pulled came from this case…

A sweet 1/1 Strata cut signature of Leo “The Lip” Durocher! If you’d like to see all of the other hits, including some hard-to-pull short prints, just check out my Sports Card Album.

Also, thanks to all of you amazing folks who joined this charity case break, we were able to donate $150 to the Wounded Warrior Project!

I’m still seriously considering doing a Topps Heritage straight-up case break. If I do decide to do one, the average slot price would be around $35 per team. It’s all going to depend on if my LCS can snag a case for me. As always, keep your lids peeled for an announcement.

The next charity case break will be Gypsy Queen and will be busted in April. I’m taking non-refundable deposits on those slots right now, so get in and grab your team now before someone else does! I’ve never cracked more than a blaster of GQ before and it’s looking to be quite an interesting product. Hope to see you there!

Mint Condition, a web segment about trading cards produced by ESPN, revealed the 2014 Topps Football base design. Also, I’ve learned how to pronounce Sooz’s last name. “Lull-Jew-Die.”
