My Thought On 2015 Topps Museum Collection
I didn't pull anything like that, but I did do ok, I guess. I had a couple PC hits like the above Jimmie Foxx base card. Man, it would be awesome to pull a Foxx relic. Regardless, this is a great card of The Beast, so I was glad to pull it.
He was clearly winning the trade anyway, but I liked the Sonny Gray he was sending, so I agreed to it and we were to send at the same time. He got the card, and I got a PRE (that's right a plain RED envelope), with one stamp and what did not feel like a thick relic card inside. Sure enough, out falls a 2013 Topps base card of Mike Napoli and a note thanking me for my business. When prompted about whether or not this was a joke, the kid tells me "Oh, I'm sorry, I must have sent you the wrong card by accident..." and sends me a tag of the person the Napoli card was intended for... the kid's PERSONAL Instagram account. His response to that was "Oops, I sent the wrong link..." Yeah, ok. So, I called the kid out on Instagram, and also reminded him that I still had his address and screenshots of our trade discussions that I would be more than happy to send his parents. Needless to say, I got the card returned to me in only a few days. Again in a PRE... With one lonely stamp. Subsequently, the kid closed his Instagram account, as word had spread that he had scammed a few other folks. So, yeah, I still have this 5/10 Hosmer relic card and I do intend to trade or sell it.
I had also pulled a Dalton Pompey auto and a Yordano Ventura dual relic/auto. The Ventura was sold to my buddy, Noah, and the Pompey was traded for the damaged Hunter Harvey manufactured logo and auto that I showed a few weeks ago.
In all, I liked busting the box of Museum Collection, even though I didn't really get my money's worth out of it. The Kemp and Hosmer cards are solid, but I won't make up for what I spent. It would have been a lot better if I pulled some hotter players, like Trout or Harper, but that's the name of the game.
