My best box break hit ever...and it's not a Ranger.

Kyle over at Just a Bit Outside is holding box breaks like the world is on fire. His 4th break was auction style and I took a flyer on the Cardinals (in addition to my Rangers) because they were such a good bargain. Turned out to be a good move on my part because I got my best box break hit ever.


It wasn't this card.





It wasn't this card either.





I love that Kyle threw in this 1963 Marv Breeding Senators card, but it's not the card I'm talking about.





Behold the 2004 Fleer Platinum Albert Pujols Inscribed autograph, #20/100.





This card has a Beckett value of One Bazillion Dollars!






Assuming he never tests positive for anything, I'll have a nice low numbered early auto of a first ballot Hall of Famer to pass on to my son.

Thanks Kyle!

  2. Is that the low value or the high value?

  4. You are lucky that wasn't one of the many expired redemptions from 2004 Platinum. I opened a box last year and had TWO expired redemptions. Congrats on getting the second best card in that break after my Tulo.

  10. Are Albert Pujols cards worth anything anymore?
