2017 Topps Flagship Needs. Help a Brother out

2017 Topps Flagship Needs. Help a Brother out

Share Button

Topps 2017 Flagship is ugly, I dislike the design, but I’m nearly finished hand collating series 1 and 2. Alas I have some holes, and out of the 5 – 36 card packs I picked up today, I only got 10 cards I needed. Grumpy Dave is Grumpy. The All-Time All-Star design is nice, and probably my favorite. I pulled one of Al Kaline today. If I recall correctly, I think I saw that he signs TTM recently. I will probably pack this one up and send it out.

I think the MLB Network broadcasters cards are silly. If it were Bob Costas or John Smoltz that I pulled I would probably enjoy them more. Side note, the other night on MLB Network, Costas taught Smoltz about flipping cards. Consequently, he also taught me about flipping them. The First Pitch subset is probably my second favorite behind the 1987 Tribute set. But there’s just something about the 1987 that makes me nostalgia filed.

I have stacks of extra base that I’m willing to trade for the holes I have. I’m missing the flagship S1 Judge, so I figure that’s probably a 3 dollar card, but I think everything else is a common. Willing to do 1:1 for base need list if I have what you need.

Flagship Series 1 Needs:

35, 58, 82, 132, 137, 146, 203, 287, 295

Flagship Series 2 Needs:

373, 374, 391, 392, 399, 405, 407, 419, 428, 444, 452, 454, 461, 484, 485, 502, 512, 559, 568, 569, 573, 579, 610, 617, 652, 656, 682, 692.

Like I said, I have a lot of base to trade 1:1, I also have some Heritage series 1 base that I can trade as well. Just get me a list of what you’re short, and I’ll see if I have it.

Hit me up on Twitter if you have a need, and I’ll see what I can find. I don’t think I have a single one of the flagship variants. So be forewarned.

89 Topps Wax Pack Number 1. The quest for Jefferies

89 Topps Wax Pack Number 1. The quest for Jefferies

Oh 1989 Topps, how I love you. Not like I love the woodgrain of 87 Topps, obviously because those are greatest of all time. But I do love you. Your banners and font work are terrific.  And your weird combination of portraits, poses, and action shots are crazy to say the least. Also, the memories of #TheHuntForGreggJefferies when I was a child. He was going to be the next big thing, and for some reason that I cannot recall every 9 and 10-year-old wanted all of his cards.

So when I found 2 uncracked wax packs setting in my old locker of baseball cards, I asked my friends on twitter if I should open them. When they reminded me of the #HuntForJefferies, I knew I had to open at least one.
