I did some online shopping over the Black Friday weekend, picking up 6 boxes of cards from Dave and Adams along with a bunch of singles from COMC. I was a little disappointed to see my COMC order which consists of a few hundred cards bought on Black Friday and over the last few months wasn't scheduled to ship until the middle of December. I am hoping to get it before Christmas.
I did also stop by my LCS that weekend and picked up a couple vintage singles for my 1972 set which I will share at a later date and a box of 2016 Topps High Tek.
I have seen a ton of the broken on Youtube and it is a totally hit or miss product. I had the itch to crack something and it isn't too high of a price point so I figured what the heck.
Here are some of the base and parallels I pulled. I believe the Greinke is the most common design, I am trying to find a site that gives good odds on the different backgrounds. The Trout has a similar design to the Greinke but also has some sparkly spirals in the background. I am hoping this means it is a super rare parallel but without it being numbered I doubt it.
I got one numbered parallel, this green Curt Schilling.
I was very happy to pull 2 different versions of Madison Bumgarner's card. These are my first Giants Tek cards this year. I believe the one on the left is considered the base version.
Finally my one auto from the box, a rookie auto of Astros rookie Tyler White. See how a couple of these have sold for a buck plus shipping on eBay you can see I was much closer to the miss side of the ledger versus the hit side when it comes to value.
