The same Topps Value Box that gave up the Diamond Giveaway code that unlocked the Dan Haren Die-Cut card also plopped these cards into my hot little hand.
First up, out of the second pack of Heritage, I pulled this green tinted variation of one of the Babe Ruth Special cards.
Some people have said these are hard to spot, but I can say it was very obvious on this one. These fall 1:108 Hobby packs so it wasn't a bad start. It is for trade if anyone is interested. If there are any Ranger green variations, I'd like one of those, but I might be persuaded otherwise.
The shock of the pack was my best pull this year. At least odds wise. The last of the five Topps packs in the Value Whamadamadingdong contained this card.
It's a 60th Anniversary Relic Reprint Ernie Banks non-specific Game Used Relic card #52/60. According to the pack, these fall at a rate of 1:6500 packs.
The way I figure it, this card must be worth $21,080!!! I'm rich!! I'm figuring 1:6500 packs means 1:1300 Value Boxes. At $14.98 plus tax, that equals $21,080 give or take a few pennies. Show me the money!!!!!
Of course, I did a quick search on Ebay and found one for a BIN price of $75. I found a completed auction where one sold for around $23. So, I guess I'm not rich. Still, it's a nice hit and probably the best I'll have all year.
I'm going to hold on to this one for awhile, unless a certain someone who pulled a Nelson Cruz relic/auto from Gypsy Queen is interested in it. I haven't emailed him yet.
