Default 3 boxes of Tribute ***SCAN HEAVY***

Went to a new LCS to check it out and alas cases of Tribute were sitting there. Gave one a try, and then off to the other shop and decided to double down with another two boxes. Nice cards, although I could have done without 8 of the rivalry cards. I easily beat the 1:6 ratio. Here are the hits and SPs I managed. All are FS (NFT) and will be listed on ebay on Sunday night. Thanks for looking. Oh, what are the chance of Topps doing anything for a badly warped Cy Young card? There were some other QC issues with some of the cards in the set, with abrasions and small amounts of adhesive present.

Yeah, I agree. I'd say it was a slightly better than average break. One of the LCS had two Strasburg redemptions hit, and the other had a nice Heyward auto pulled from his one pack. Alas, no such luck for me...

I still like the looks and quality of the cards in this product. While I dont like the price for what you get back, its a great looking release. Some of the players in it are mind boggling. Chone Figgins and Carlos Pena? CHONE FIGGINS???

I have a Mantle base (currently in negotiation), and a blue parallel 118/399. The parallel is available for sale.

at least it looks like you got some color on those jersey cards. all the breaks I have seen on here are only gray or white pieces.
looks pretty solid all around

I agree on the colors. The Eckersley, while not worth much, is cool to look at and might end up being the only card I hang onto.

PMs sent to others...
