Here were the basic rules:
- Donate 2 or 3 star game used, rookie card, short print, or autographed cards.
- Each card should be assigned a book value.
- For every card you want out of the box you must replace with a card of your own of equal value.
- You can take as many as you want, as long as you replace what you take.
I thought I would share what I pulled out of the box:
I started with a trio of 1972 Topps HOFers. I ultimately want to put together this set so whenever I get the chance to pick up some great cards from this set I jump on it.
Next up are some more vintage beauties. The 1965 set is one of my favorites and I have always liked The Sporting News All Star subset. I couldn't pass up Mathews card either, a beauty of a 1959 Topps card.
Lastly, there was a binder with some recent issues and there were two I needed for my set so I quickly grabbed them.
We are keeping what we submitted a surprise but I mostly replaced the vintage with vintage and the Ginter with Ginter. There were several football cards as well so I decided to put in a nice gold parallel of a future HOFer that I hope is well received.
Lots of fun and can't wait to see what goodies are in the box next time around.
