2012 Allen&Ginter - eBay Box Break (Mets , Brewers)

What's up guys!

I bought 2 teams in a box break of 
2012 Allen Ginter on eBay.
I had the opportunity to watch it live or later on YouTube.

Cause it was 4AM here in germany i watched it
on YouTube. ^^ 

So if you reading this post cause of A&G Mets cards, 
just stop.

There was no Mets card in the whole Box !!!! 


But the guy from the break gave me a refund for
no Mets players in the Box!

So take a look at his breaks!
I like him and i'll come back!

(But he's not able to focus on the cards, it's the wall behind everytime)

So Brewers only .. and not many!
Here is the video first!

Many Angels, Nationals, Phillys, Dodgers, Rangers!
And of course Yankees!
So if you buy a spot .. take one of these!


We had 5 Brewers cards in total ... no hit!
3 Base Cards - 1 Short Print - 1 Insert

Aramis Ramirez and Nyjer Morgan

Rickie Weeks 

Zack Greinke - SP
1:2 Hobby Packs

and ...  a really nice Ryan Braun - Highlight Sketch card!

As a bonus he gave me following!

2010 Bowman Platinum - Ryan Braun

.... so Braun is one of my favorite players! I like this one ...

Thanks for reading

2002 Upper Deck MVP - Retail Box

What's up collectors ? 
I ordered a "Deal" Box at dacardworld

2002 Upper Deck MVP Baseball
i think it was at 12.99$!

The reason to Order was Ichiro again.
The product has a lot of Ichiro inserts and numbered relics.

As you can see they are promoting that on the box .. 


Let's do the quick recap first!

24 Packs - 8 Cards per pack

I had a chance to get:

Ichiro A Season to Remember (Insert)

Ichiro A Season to Remember Numbered (Insert)

Souvenir Bat

Souvenir Bat/Jersey Combo

Souvenir Jersey

Gold Souvenir Bat/Jersey Combo


What i got:

190 Base Cards - 2 Inserts 
(not numbered)

.... there is a simple reason i usually don't buy Upper Deck!
This crap is! 
What sense!

(I know UD is good in Football and Hockey and Basketball, but that doesn't matter here in the baseball hobby) 

Upper Deck sucks! 

But anyways ... let me show you some scans.



Albert Pujols and David Ortiz
(who's the skinny guy ? ^^)

Mike Piazza
(oh nice smile, beautiful face Mike)


Alex Rodriguez - Checklist
(I couldn't identify him on this photo)

Derek Jeter and Ken Griffey Jr. - Checklist

so the design sucks and the cards are scratchy cause of this
engraved bronze stuff.


Let's head to the cool cards


Ichiro - Base Card

Ichiro - Checklist

The Inserts:

Ichiro - A season to remember (Insert) 15 & 18


Nothing more in the whole box ^^ 
I cannot believe that somebody bought this box
back in 2002!

If you want to complete the base set.
Just mail me , tweet me.
I'll send you some cards.

Thanks for reading! 

Stay tuned for Ichiro Mailday!

2009 Topps T-206 - Blaster Box (8 Packs)


What's up fans ?! It has been a few days since my last posts but here is a big one and in the following day there will be more.
Including Ichiro and 2002 Upper Deck MVP baseball! 


First of all a little Story.
I tried to sign up for Google AdSense.
But this Google crawling machine told me that i've got not realy much
text here in my Blog and denied it.

So I have to add more Text!
Sorry for that but I really want to try this AdSense thing.

Before every Post i have to describe the product ... or tell some trivia^^


So here's the product
2009 Topps T-206

As you can see there are 8 (retail) packs inside!
6 cards per pack! 48 cards per box!

I paid 9.99$ .. really cool!


Little breakdown:

" 2009 Topps 206 was released in the first week of December of 2009, and commerates the 100th anniversary of the original American Tobacco (T-206) baseball card set.
The set features 300 cards with 50 un-numbered variations. Each Hobby box promises two framed autographed and/or relic cards per box. "

I've got following in my packs:
Bronze Parallel 1:1 Retail Odds

Mini Piedmont (i think) 1:1 Retail Odds
Mini Polar Bear 1:10 Retail Odds
Mini Old Mill 1:20 Retail Odds

SP 1:4 Retail Odds
Mickey Mantle Checklist

Let's start with the design of the base cards

Jason Veritek , Front and Back

I just love the design of the cards. This should be my favorite design of all time. Even better then Allen Ginter .. Just perfect ... 

Some more base cards ...

Ken Griffey Jr    and     Rickie Weeks

Matt Kemp


Bronze Parallels:

Ricky Romero - Rookie Card Bronze Parallel

Mark Teixeira Bronze Parallel

those are not numbered but way thicker than the base cards!
(btw. i got the Romero and his base card in the same pack)


Now the Minis!

Ichiro Mini with the standard Piedmont back .. but very cool. Vintage!

Johan Santana with a Polar Bear back

Joe Nathan with the rare Old Mill back

... so there are numbered minis too. Like the Cycle back # to 99
or even the Carolina Bright 1of1 ... 


There are 7 different checklists
Every card with another Mantle on it.

I had number 5 and 6 of 7!

Mickey Mantle Checklist 5 of 7

Mickey Mantle Checklist 6 of 7


Now the short prints. The not so rare short prints.
But i think i've got 2 of the best!

Cy Young - Short Print

Tim Lincecum - Short Print Variation


If i have the chance to get another of these 
blaster boxes I'll take whatever i can get.
I love this product. Even if i haven't a hit!

Stay tuned!
