First of all, before I even talk about anything else, I just want to acknowledge the image posted above. That is a screenshot of the confirmation page of our donation to V-DAY from the 2016 Topps Museum Collection charity case break. We raised $300. That brings our total lifetime amount to over $6000 raised for various charities! You guys freakin’ rule, you know that? AWESOME!

The break was a very fun time, especially with a healthy LQ back on board to give me her usual good dose of shit like she loves to do and to provide her eagle-eyed card sorting. Of course, sorting 250 cards shouldn’t be too challenging. To her credit, though, she was also working at the same time. Props to my wife. Love ya!

We pulled some monster hits, as you might expect from a full case of Museum Collection. Believe it or not, this case actually yielded my very first ever Bryce Harper autograph. Now if only I could land a Byron Buxton and maybe even a Kris Bryant.

We also pulled an unusual card that I posted about yesterday. It’s the Buster Posey base card. I have yet to find any more information on this card to see if this was a one-off whoopsie or if all of Buster’s Museum base cards are like this. Check it out…

My guess is that they’re all like that, but if not, that card is definitely a keeper!

Let’s take a look at what we pulled. Here are a few of my favorites from the break…

    You know, after having watched the break I am very surprised that there were ONLY 7 Mets hits. It seemed like every box contained a Mets hit!!

  2. Jeff says:

    Am I reading this right – White Sox were shut out? And that’s why I don’t waste my time in breaks. Complete lack of appreciation for my team. Screw you, Topps.

  3. Ooh a Larkin auto – that’d be worth the price of admission for me!
