Our 2017 Topps Heritage break definitely lived up to the hype, thanks in part to the anonymous donor who let us crack open a vintage 1968 Topps Baseball Christmas rack pack. Now that all the cards from that break have shipped, we’re offering a pre-sale on teams for 2017 Museum. It’s just $20 per team to reserve, then just pay the rest before the break! Head over to the break page now to lock in your team!

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…

This really was an incredible break, and if you want to see the rest of the great hits we pulled and see/hear just how much fun we have during these breaks, I encourage you to check out the full replay video provided below. Thank you so much to those who were part of the break and helped us raise $300 for such a great cause. To me, you guys are the best part of this hobby!

As I was sifting through and organizing the base cards from last night’s Museum Collection charity case break, I noticed something strange about the only Buster Posey base card that was pulled. I searched Google, eBay, and a few forums to see if anyone else came across something like this. Are all of Posey’s 2016 Museum cards like this, or is Nick F. the new proud owner of an eBay 1/1?

Topps Museum Pushed Back

As can happen with higher-end product, especially those with on-card autographs, Topps has had to push back 2016 Museum Collection. No definite reason was given, however I suspect this may lead to the inclusion of more redemptions. Obviously, with the release date being pushed back, the charity case break has been rescheduled.

RESCHEDULED CASE BREAK: 4/16/16 5pm Central


Museum Pre-Sale SOON
