My son and I just got back into collecting baseball cards around last November. He is only 7 yrs old and really didn’t know what they were. I have been a collector for many years but not on a grand scale.
I bought a ‘hobby’ jumbo pack of 2013 Topps Series 1 from my favorite card shop, Funtime Collectables in Sharonville, Ohio. I almost opened it before I got home from work. I told my boy on the phone I had bought him a new pack of cards so I resisted and waited. We got a lot of base cards, some fun inserts and we pulled this:
This one is #1 of 25 made. Collectors like #1’s, player # and the last # produced. There have only been 2 others listed on eBay since their release in Feb 2013. Both selling for over $200 each. We’re keeping ours!
