I splurged this week. Part of my trip down south was a trip to the Hard Rock Casino. After a successful visit to the blackjack tables, I decided to treat myself and purchase a hobby box of 2014 series 1. I'll share a couple of cards that I didn't expect to pull out of the box.
A couple of years back when I bought a hobby box of Heritage, I pulled a buy back card of Chuck Hiller from '62 Topps. I remember being happy about the card, except for the giant foil logo that Topps pasted on it.
About halfway through this years' hobby box, I pulled this card.
I have this card already for the '73 set I'm putting together (sporadically), but I have to check to see if this is an upgrade. I'm thinking it probably is. To be honest, I don't even mind the Topps 75th logo in the upper right corner. For me, it really doesn't take much away from the card.
In the next pack, I was shocked to pull this card.
Total spent on cards this week: $65 + tax
Yea, it's probably more than I should have spent, but it was "found money", and I didn't have to wait for the box to be shipped. Plus spending money at a B&M card dealer is probably a good idea every once in a while.
I may have pulled a pink, a black, and a few red parallels, but for me these were the best pulls of the box.
Now it's time to put the set together.
Thanks for reading, Robert
