May 7th Card Show.

I’ve given a few box breaks of Diamond Kings and Perennial Draft Picks in the past, so instead of rehashing that, here’s the highlights of a recent break during a card show. The show continued on Sunday, but being Mother’s Day, let’s just say my presence was required in more important places. Box one – another 2015 Diamond Kings. Sure I can’t strike gold every time I break a box, but you can’t make contact without swinging the bat! Plus I pulled a Twins hit! How often does that happen?


25 Rookies base
61 Base cards
Three short-prints, but 0 #/d cards. :(. Worse still, two of the short prints were the same player. :(.
Two framed Diamond Kings – #45 Eric Hosmer, #181 Terrance Gore.
Two DK Originals – #6 Madison Bumgardner, #8 Jose Abreu.
Two Nicknames – #3 Mariano Rivera, #5 Lou Gehrig.
Two Aficionados – #14 Rusney Castillo, #16 Miguel Cabrera.

Two minis – #202 Addison Russell, #238 Raisel Iglesias.
#082/299 Anthony Ranaudo dual relic, auto, and a #48/99 Joe Mauer bat, jersey relic!


With the lottery ticket out of the way, I broke three more cheap boxes of Perennial Draft Picks. A big spender saw the players I was pulling and decided to break a few himself. More on that later.

Very nice group here. So it was about this point that the big spender was paying for his second box, and I grabbed my third. Before I could start the third box he pulls this:

A #097/100 Byron Buxton! He said he had no real attachment to keeping it, and he’d be open to trading when we finished. Sweet. Box 4:
102 base.

So wrapping up the four boxes, and some searching on Beckett, COMC, and Ebay pricing later, we agreed to trade the prizm Aaron Judge(but not numbered!) and the Cory Vaugh prizm base #/d card for the #/100 Byron Buxton. Four boxes, three Twins – not bad. As this was during a card show, I had a few purchases there too. Namely some vintage: ’51 Bowman Irv Noren, ’53 Bowman Pete Runnels, ’55 Bowman Jim Lemon, and two ’52 Topps Eddie Yost, Floyd Baker. Also a few PC pickups:

Two retail parallels, a home and state parallel, and a #181/199 Chrome. If these are the types of shows Duane is gonna run, count me in for future shows!
