Do you like Buzz Breaks? Today’s your day then as we launch 12 in 12 — a series of a dozen breaks of past wax boxes and wax packs in a dozen hours. We’ll post one every hour on the hour all day long today … this is Hour 11.
The box: 2012 Panini Cooperstown Extra Innings baseball cards
The cost: $40 (packs here when available)
What’s inside this one? Keep reading …
With 52 autographs in every box — as well as a posh party invitation — it doesn’t take a lot to see the dollar signs inside each $25,000 box of 2016 Topps Transcendent Collection baseball cards.
Those invites alone get a good chunk of change back (details here) and each case’s 1/1 Kris Bryant autograph using one of the 65 historic Topps designs commands some, too. Those cards have sold for as much as $2,182 on eBay (so far) and all seven sold have gone for at least $1,000.
Meanwhile, the asking or bid prices in current auctions are over the $1,000 mark in all but one instance and range as high as $7,250 for those in the historic set.
But the priciest find found inside one of those 65 silver briefcases? It’s much more impressive.
The latest high-end Topps baseball card set is on its way soon and that means it’s time to see a checklist.
Topps released the final list for 2016 Topps Dynasty on Wednesday — a week before its release — and this will be one of the first places where Derek Jeter‘s autographs will be found as part of his new deal with the company.
But he’s not alone.
What: 2017 Leaf Cut Signature Edition History of Baseball
Box basics: One cut signature card per box (20 boxes per case)
What’s buzz-worthy: Leaf’s newest cut autograph product will be all Hall of Famers as part of a made-to-order product with all serial-numbered cards encapsulated and printed on Metal Prismatic stock.
He was known as “Little Napoleon” during his 17 seasons as a player that began way back in 1891 and during his 36 seasons as a manager that ended back in 1932, but the memorabilia cards of Baseball Hall of Famer John McGraw found in 2015 Panini National Treasures are a big deal.
Why? They’re unprecedented in hobby history.
