I bought a box

Not anything crazy, i'm not going off the rails yet. I'm no box buster but for 20 bucks at the card show last month I couldn't pass it up. I hadn't been able to track any of this stuff down yet at my regular stops so this was a good way to get the Braves in the set and maybe some cool trade bait.


I ended up getting the whole set plus 20 or 30 dupes so the collation was solid, good job Topps!



Throwbacks, need these Jedi Jeff?


These are pretty cool, Lucroy would look better in a Braves uniform and Sale will be in a Boston uni next season. White Sox going full bore on the rebuild.


He Who Must Not Be Names makes an appearance for the Braves here. That Seager kid is pretty good.



I took this photo and left it out over night, the next day at work my wife called to let me know my son had scribbled all over one card and one card only - Chipper Jones, All is well the guy I bought it from plopped a fresh one in a sleeve down as soon as I walked up to his booth today. Good guy and the only true Marlins fan I know,


The "hits", 2 serial numbered hall of famers. Let me know if you want them.


Picked up some Dirty Birds while there as well including this beauty for 2 bucks!


Deion Jones looking like the rookie of the year. Campbell has been getting better and better but got hurt today.


This guy made a hell of a catch in the end zone today as my Falcons blew out SanFran 41-13


Run Free for 3 touchdowns young man.


Defensive Player of the Year? 14.5 sacks, 6 forced fumbles including a strip and score.



Glad I grabbed these cheap when I did!


MVP?

  2. That's cool you were able to get a box (and a complete set!!) for only $20. I don't get the love for the Bunt product- but, hey, to each his own.

  3. I really like those Bunt cards. Good for Topps to have a cheap set like that out there.

    I think that I've mentioned to you before, but maybe not, my roommate is a Falcons fan so I see a lot of them. I'm glad to see them doing well.

  4. I don't need them, but just curious: why are they serial numbered?

    1. They're some goofy parallel. Gold and silver I think

  5. The 49ers look like lost little puppies. It was fun to see the Falcons pound them.

    I loved Topps Bunt. So much better than Opening Day.

  6. Ripping a box for twenty bucks is well worth it. Nice pulls.

  7. Bunt was the surprise set of the year for me. Solid cards at an overwhelmingly affordable price point, and some fun insert sets, to boot. I hope Topps brings it back for 2017.
