...an autograph worth getting out a Topps base product. Never, have I seen an auto from a pack of basic Topps that was worth really anything. I've pulled a few decent autos but nothing overly fantastic. This guy is the clear winner for best auto I've pulled:
Certainly a quality auto right here. Pulled from a hobby jumbo, from of all places, a Newbury Comics store. For those who don't live in the Massachusetts area, Newbury Comics is an awesome store that carries comics, movies and music. I noticed the last time I was there a few months back they carried baseball cards. Last night I went with a buddy of mine and picked out 4 packs and one jumbo. All hobby. No idea why they have hobby packs but that's all they had. No problem there. The pack luck continues. When I buy packs, I get good stuff. When I buy boxes, I usually get the shaft or missing hits. Want more proof? See the Reggie Jackson, Bucky Dent relics and the Yaz and Ortiz dual relic? I pulled those three from four packs of 2009 SP Legendary Cuts. Last time I went to Wal-Mart, which was on Thursday? I picked up a couple packs of 2011 Topps and pull the Ruth legend variant (card 271). I'll save that picture for a future post. Packs net me my best stuff, maybe I should just give up boxes all together...
