1. 2021-22 Panini Spectra Marcus Zegarowski Black Pulsar Aspiring Auto /10
There’s nothing better than a Release Day Break. “Spectra is fire”, according to Rhody Breaks, and we couldn’t agree more. A Logoman would have been nice, but the Hit that stood out in this Pick Your Team was a Marcus Zegarowski Rookie Auto. The Black Pulsar Aspiring subset card numbered to 10 featured his Autograph in a sharp Silver ink.
2. 2022 Panini Luminance Brian Robinson Jr Year One Auto Green
This was a Layton Sports Cards Personal Break just for Brett W, who apparently knows a good set when he sees one. Luminance is one of our favorite sets, each card seems to be from a different, slick subset. Year One Autos are their first printing of young athletes, and this Brian Robinson Jr card will only gain value as time goes by. This card had Green foil that matched perfectly with the Green Ink Auto.
3. 2021 Topps Triple Threads Jacob Degrom, Pete Alonso and Francisco Lindor Gold /9
I guess it’s not too surprising to find a Triple Relic in a set called Triple Threads, but it’s still a really good-looking card. It was a Gold Triple Relic featuring 3 of the NY Mets’ finest, from a year when they posed quite a threat in the National League. Will these 3 still be in NY at the start of the 2023 Season? Only time will tell, but Brandon, for whom this Personal Break was for, will have this card forever.
4. 2022 Topps Luminaries Tom Glavine Patch Auto /10
This on-card Auto and Patch of the legendary Atlanta Pitcher is not only special because it’s numbered to 10. This Masters of the Mound Relic card also has a huge 2607 etched into the Patch, commemorating his total number of career strikeouts. Luminaries is a great set, fortunately they already come in the one-touch cases so they save collectors that critical step.
5. 2019-20 Panini Flawless Clyde Drexler Diamond 1/1
When your Box of cards comes in a suitcase, you know it’s special. As was the Case with this 2019-20 Flawless Basketball rip, a Box valued at $10k. Hitman Rips did not disappoint, pulling 1 of 1 Clyde Drexler from the USA Olympic Basketball Team of 1992. Better known as the Dream Team, they walked away with the Gold that year, as well as a must-see documentary made back in 2012.
