Thanks to some AMAZING collectors, we were able to donate $200 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital from our 2017 Topps Series 2 charity case break! Phenomenal!

Our next charity case break coming up is one of my annual favorites, Topps Museum Collection. It’s actually LQ’s favorite thing to break each year (because HITS). We’ll be busting that case up in your face at 5pm C on Friday June 23 2017, so be sure to come back here then to watch and chat, or come back later to watch the replay! Don’t worry. If there are any code cards this time, I’ll be sure to keep the codes off camera. *WINK*

If you missed it, check out both our Series 2 break recap video AND our Series 2 Gut Reaction review video below! Thanks, enjoy, and we’ll see you Friday night!

Someone Stole Our MLB The Show 17 Codes

MLB The Show 17 Code Card

On Saturday night, we busted a full case of 2017 Topps Series 2. In that case, we pulled 30+ MLB The Show 17 code cards. I delivered one card to each person in the break, and the leftovers went to another person. I have heard from some people that their codes have already been redeemed. The obvious answer is that someone watched our entire break, paused the video each time I pulled a code card, and stole the code.

Yes, I should have been more careful. I should not have allowed the codes to be shown on screen. Lesson learned. I do have to wonder, though, what kind of pathetic lowlife scans through a nearly five hour long video of a baseball card case break with the intent to STEAL?

So, if you were in our 2017 Topps Series 2 charity case break and your MLB The Show 17 code card does not work, I sincerely apologize. In the future, I will be more careful with any potential code cards that may be pulled in future products. As for the thief, you owe me and a lot of other people an apology.

You really can’t expect too much out of 2017 Topps Series 2, but we busted open a case and ripped it apart anyway. Did this follow-up to Series 1 beat expectations, or was it just another ho-hum low-end money grab? Also, is it really that obvious that I tried a new recording technique? Oh, well. I’ll do better next time. Enjoy!


It’s been a while since we’ve done a case break for charity, and I’m super pumped to get this one rolling! We’ll be tearing into one hobby case of 2017 Topps Series 2 along with 12 silver packs at 1pm C, and we’re raising money that will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital! Come back then to watch us rip and join the chat, or come back later to catch the replay!
