TTM Tuesday: Peyton Manning

I don't always send NFL ttms, but when I do it's to a Manning.

Not sure how long this request was out, but it was a while. I got it back from his Foundation with a small donation.

This is my second time getting Peyton back ttm. I've also gotten returns from Archie and Eli.

9 Repacks

Last week I had to go to a Dollar Tree store for some poster board for a end of the year school project for one of my boys. 

I always check to see if they have cards. Occasionally they'll have something decent. This time they had 30 card packs from a company called Presstine Marketing Inc.

Anyone else bought any of these repacks?

$1 for 30 cards makes them roughly 3 cents each. So I took a chance and bought 4 packs. I was pleasantly surprised. Later in the week I went back and bought 5 more.

I liked these repacks because while there was plenty plenty of 1990 Donruss there was also a nice variety of old and new with some stars, hall of famers and inserts. 

I won't show you all 30 cards from the each pack, but I'll show some highlights from each one. Let me know what you think.

What is the best card I got?

Here's pack 1.

Pack 2

Pack 3

Pack 4

Pack 5

Pack 6

My Top 10 Paul Goldschmidt Cards

Collecting Cutch has one of the most impressive player collections out there and I have a hard time believing anyone out there has a better Andrew McCutchen collection!

He showed off his top 10 McCutchen cards and is holding a contest for the rest of the blogosphere to show off the top 10 cards of their favorite player.

Most of you know that my main PC is Paul Goldschmidt, so here are my top 10.

#1) 2011 Topps Update RC Gold Parallel - I don't think this will ever reach the same status as the Trout RC from the same set, but I am extremely happy to have this gold parallel in my collection. 

#2) 2011 Bowman Sterling RC Green Parallel - The green parallel is numbered out of 199. To tell the truth, I'd rather have the base card. Well, I'd love to have the gold version numbered to 50, but I don't think that is going to happen anytime soon. In the meantime, I'm very happy to have this card in my collection.

#3) 2015 Topps Chrome Gallery of Greats Gold Parallel - Speaking of gold parallels numbered to 50. Here is a nice one. I really love gold parallels of Goldschmidt cards and the fact that most gold parallels are numbered to 50 makes it even better.

#4) Five Star - I couldn't pick just one Five Star card for the list. I love all the autos and the base card is numbered to just 75, so it's harder to find than most of the autos.

#5) 2013 Topps Triple Threads - I have several versions of this card, but this is my favorite and the fact that I bought it off ebay for less than $8 shipped makes it stand out even more.

#6) 2015 Topps Triple Threads - The first card is nice, but when I saw the patch version I fell in love.

#7) 2014 Allen & Ginter Box Topper - This over-sized card has a piece of jersey and is hand numbered to 25. I need to have Goldy sign it.

#8) 2015 Museum Collection - Many of these quad cards feature only one patch, but this one has four fantastic patches.

#9) 2014 National Treasures Booklet - I normally stay away from unlicensed stuff, but I couldn't pass up #9 and #10. I think this booklet features most of the O and part of the L from GOLDSCHMIDT, but I suppose I'll never know for sure.

#10) 2015 National Treasures Treasured Material Button Card - I got this card for free. I got an email from ebay where if I sold 5 items within a certain time frame I would get a $50 credit. I made a best offer and it was accepted and ended up with this beauty.
