Clock ticks for BlowoutTV 50-case auction break of 2015 Bowman Draft

SwansonIf you’re a veteran prospector you’ve probably ripped into a few Bowman Draft cases through the years, but the latest big break from BlowoutTV is one that has to impress even the most-grizzled of hobby veterans.

It’s a 50-case break of 2015 Bowman Draft. Yep, 50 cases. That’s 600 boxes. That’s 14,400 packs. That’s a whole lot of potential.

The clock is winding down on the auction for this break with a deadline on ink tonight (click here for the basics) and there are a few players who should grab the attention of prospectors. Among notables here are Andrew BenintendiBrendan Rodgers and Dansby Swanson to name a few and there are inevitably other gems to be found with color or Superfractor potential in that much wax.

panini-infinity-box

There’s a new look — and a new place to keep track of all that’s going on — with BlowoutTV and a box of the new 2016 Panini Infinity football cards is part of it if you check things out.

While the breaks are regularly happening over at breakers.tv/blowoutTV, there is a new section of the Blowout Cards Forum where you can see all of the breaks that are planned in advance. You can post your claimed spots there, pay up and stay tuned for when the break will take place. That new section — BlowoutTV with Matt — can be found here and has all the info you need to know along with the latest lineups for larger breaks.

So, how does the Infinity box come into play? Head on over to Twitter and follow @Matt_BlowoutTV — that’s where you’ll find up-to-the-minute updates on breaks as they happen as well as looks at the latest pulls you won’t see here on The Buzz. Once that account gets to 500 followers, the box of the new 2016 Panini Infinity football cards (they officially arrive tomorrow) will be given away to a random follower.

Just because it’s old doesn’t mean the historic gems aren’t in there

2006-National-Treasures-football-break.34 PM
Plenty has changed in the sports card world in the last decade and BlowoutTV had a group break on Monday afternoon that proved it.

The break was a case of 2006 National Treasures football cards — a case that was made by a company that no longer exists but a lineage that continues today with Panini America.

Getting in on the break wasn’t bad — a four-box case ran just over $100 for two teams per spot — and it reinforced the notion that old wax can still pack surprises no matter what changes in the hobby.

In fact, the final card in the final box was of a Hall of Famer — a 1/1 autograph of a Super Bowl-winning quarterback.

BlowoutTV’s 1973 Topps box break: Who gets the Mike Schmidt spot? That gets answered tonight …

SchmidtIf you hadn’t heard, BlowoutTV is breaking a box of 1973 Topps baseball cards live on Friday night.

Last night, the randomization of 660 spots to determine who got each card in the set — no matter how many show up in the box — took place. The key spot, card No. 615 aka the Rookie Card of Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt, randomly went to one of five winners who retweeted a Blowout contest.

Who got the card? Nobody yet … so keep reading.

Pondering what’s possible in a 1973 Topps baseball group break — and you can win one of five free spots

1973-Topps-boxWhat you see here is a 1973 Topps wax box — 24 packs of 10 cards — with cards inside just as they were wrapped in wax paper more than 40 years ago.

blowoutTVlogo09They’ll all see the light of day soon as part of an upcoming BlowoutTV group break, which will give collectors a shot at high-grade copies of Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt‘s Rookie Card along with RCs of Rich “Goose” Gossage, Dwight Evans, Davey Lopes and Bob Boone. (Oh, and keep reading to see how you can get in on a free spot in the break …)

And then, of course, there are cards of Hall of Famers and notables such as Hank Aaron, Nolan Ryan, Brooks Robinson, Roberto Clemente, Al Kaline, Willie Mays, Pete Rose, Thurman Munson, Reggie Jackson, Harmon Killebrew, Joe Morgan and many more. Perfect specimens aren’t a given with the printing, cutting and packaging of the past, but a box like this one can yield plenty of high-dollar cards in PSA 9 and 10 form. (And some strong cards in lesser grades.)

But the real power in this one beyond the Hall of Famers? The potential for PSA 10 commons — cards that are often overlooked raw but can command insane amounts when PSA Registry collectors chase a set in high grade. How about $739.76 for a PSA 10 Bobby Murcer?

There’s some Power of the Pinstripes in play there, but that card is not alone.
