Red Mini's 9-Rosenthal, Koufax, Piscotty, Ellsbury, Ray, Hernandez-Laurie, Senzatela, Rosenberg, Reyes-Efren.

Silver mini's 2-Wright-Steven, Mazara,

Only 1 bazooka back and 2 no number minis. We had several packs with no mini's.

Had 4 or 5 of every card 1-300 except number 300-Kepler We only got 3. 5 Judges.
Had 2 or 3 of every card 301-350 except number 316-Wainwright. We got zero.

If anyone can help with the 2 Wainwrights and the 1-Kepler please send a PM.

Now to the autographs

Non Baseball
Katz, Keene, Kelley, LaForce, Manganiello, Steele-Redemption and

Shatner

Baseball
Lindor-Redemption, Blach, Springer, Benintendi

and

Jeter.

Overall very happy with the case except for not getting a least 1 complete set.

Thanks for looking

Just busted my first of two boxes...

Judge Rc
Didi Gregorius Red Mini /5
Alexa Datt framed mini Auto

Pretty happy with the break, thinking about selling the second but will probably end up busting by the end of the night.

Box 2/2...

Red Mini Jayson Werth 4/5
Jorge Alfaro Auto
Beni RC

Again no Syndergaard/Harper/Bryant/Trout/Judge in two boxes. Almost wish I had bought a 3rd box, but my wallet and my risk tolerance for the month has been exceeded.

For $60 a box though, I'm not complaining. It was a fun rip.

outside of the red minis, this stuff is not selling

just like normal years

sure it's extremely limited, but no one cares

a base judge rc has not sold for 2 days now, and there are a lot of them up and the prices keep getting lowered
sure graded, a year from now may be good

sets aren't moving, minis aren't moving like they are limited/100
shoot mini lots are selling less than black border mini lots did, haha

and the autos, really aren't commanding much attn or premium, so many sitting there
outside the top names, not much draw

that was my concern with chrome coming, that too few even knew about this release and that chrome would bury it

seems to be

and sure 2-3 months from now when dried up, but again...will anyone care? Ginter X is awesome, but has never sold well or been in big demand, both sealed or opened
hmmmm, got me rethinking it
that and the case I opened will actually LOSE $, yep, it was THAT bad, haha

Anyone want to sell me a #307 J.J. Hardy full size for $4? You can ship however you like as long as it gets to me in good condition. It's the only card I'm missing for a set. One on eBay for $5.50, but I'm trying to save a buck lol.

Part of the problem is the general public isn't aware this is a thing I've had a lot of offers on the minis where people have "lowballed" me, and said that the other copies of this sold for $1-$2 and why am I asking so much for mine. In other words, they're being confused with the black minis from the regular Ginter.

NO one really knows about the print run, the total sell-out at Topps, or the lack of opened product. I've done well even without the Mayweather, but I think a large segment of the collecting population isn't even remotely aware of this being a separate limited issue. Time will tell...

Nice! That's the fourth Manny I think on here and two on eBay, one of them isn't a member on here. I'm not sure that this is SP'd, obviously still could be. I've seen as many of these as the regular ginter, black frame and red ink combined from the regular series.

Maddux /25 Mini
1/1 Silver Greinke


And this....

Ordered 12 boxes, received a sealed case. I prayed for a "signature" silver 1/1 and I got it.

Very nice! I'm interested in the Perez if you are selling/trading.

You guys are killing me with your great breaks. I decided to bust 12 boxes and it wasn't pretty

Autos-Legrand, Tapia, Keene, Laforce, Alex Reyes, Baez, McNamara, Grichuk, Rinaldi, Anderson, Alfaro, Steele redemption, Fowler redemption. I did get an extra auto but

Silver- Jose Reyes 1/1

Plate- Victor Martinez 1/1 black

Red- Maddux, Bo Jackson, Kershaw, Conforto, Stanton, De Leon, Granderson, Kinsler, Herrera

Brooklyn back- Bench #25/25

NNO- 3 no names

Minis- Clemente, Ryan, Benintendi, Moncada, Seager, Ripken, Bryant, Aaron, Mattingly and others.

2 Base sets 1-300 and 2 sets 1-350 can't complain about collation.

My case came in a day early! My wife tells me at 10:30 in passing... "oh yeah, a Topps package came today". Instantly I thought it was one of many redemptions that they owe me because surely it couldn't be the case. She knew it was coming and described it as we all know they come... crappy tape that says "do not accept if seal is broken" or whatever. She went on to say (as I'm practically running to the other room at this point) that it just didnt feel heavy enough to be the case. My heart sank as I recalled Brent's initial debacle and the other report i heard. Thankfully, it was the "case" or 12 boxes as it turned out. I immediately called my friend and of course he agreed to drive an hour to help me open and sort!

Here is what we degenerates received in our 12 boxes that was supposed to have been a case:

NO # minis:
Honus Wagner
Aaron Nola
Johnny Cueto
1 other

Brooklyn Back /25
Manuel Margo

Red Backs that I can recall:
Yadier Molina
Odubel Herrera
Barry Larkin
True Blood guy
Robbie Ray
Ty Blach
Ryan Zimmerman
2 others

1/1 Silver:
James Shields

1/1 Full Size Glossy:
Miguel Cabrera!

7X BASE JUDGE
2X MINI JUDGE

Autographs:
Henry Owens!!
Dansby Swanson Redemption X2
Sage Steele Redemption
Ty Blach
Chris Sale (Nice Signature)
Julio Urias Redemption
Gary Stevens
Andy Katz
George Springer
Bo Steil
BRYCE HARPER REDEMPTION!!
1 other but I cant remember who... one of the Dansbys was an extra with the Henry Owens!

Very fun break... my sets are doomed, but I'm not complaining!

Sure, and I mentioned that earlier
Yet the main question is, even do most collectors care?
If when i tell them how limited it is, it does not seem to impact their decision at all, and some won't ever even stop to hear about this release

I sent out feelers to my customer list this week for base sets and team sets
A few people responded about team sets, but no one who ordered basic Ginter sets from me wanted an X set
2 of them said almost the exact words...Thanks, but I've had enough Ginter for this year
Another said he never does X
several didn't know about it despite it being out before and said they weren't interested
I did manage to sell a few team sets but again, compared to my norm

Maybe the online exclusive kinda hurts
I've said this before, but we live in a bubble here...sure this has been viewed many times, but often it's by the same group of 50-100 of us viewing multiple times daily, but even if not, the general collecting public does not visit here and read everything especially if they aren't seeking X out

I am rambling, but I guess my point is, will they care

Personally, I like it better than regular Ginter design wise...sure it's missing many elements I enjoy, and there isn't as much variety, but I love the black and the minis...I almost wish this was a parallel within the set, and make the black border minis just be these, and the black framed /25 autos, be the silver ink
I don't know, again...I ramble

I agree , it's great, and I think long term values will hold and increase for many things especially sealed, but a lot of it also is the history of the product...it's always been soft, and even at 40-50-60% does not move well for Topps in the past

THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT IF FOLKS DO WANT IT, THERE IS HARDLY ANY OF IT OUT THERE TO BE HAD!
