Earlier this month in Chicago, I was invited to the Layton Sports Cards party at Rivers Casino in Rosemont. I've become friends with Rich, who owns the shop in Cape May, NJ, his wife Sara, and Brian, the shop manager. I've done several group breaks with Rich so far, and he is the best in the business. More on that in a later post.
What I have to show here are the hits from a World Baseball Classic box I won as a door prize at the LSC party. This was a major score for a few reasons. One, the cards are beautiful, there are several hits in the box, and it was one of the hottest boxes of the show due to it being the box you needed to redeem at the Topps booth for a Yasiel Puig Gypsy Queen redemption. I already sold the Puig for $44 bucks. Did I mention a box of this cost $145 at the show? Yeah, big time score.
But it gets even bigger. Here are the hits:
Here is a sweet three color patch of Yovani Gallardo.
The last hit I will show is one of the biggest I have ever pulled, and I didn't even know it at the time. I pulled a logo patch relic card of a South Korean player named Dae Ho Lee.
So all in all, this door prize win was super awesome, I'd say.
