Resolved and a Gift!

Ten days ago I received three Austin Meadows autos from an Ebay breaker who busted 3 cases of 2020 Topps Archives Signature Series.
That was a bummer of a day. I received quite a bit of feedback on that post and I'd thank those who wished me a quick resolution.

Today the cards arrived.

Prepare yourself for super Vogel Mojo!
2013 Bowman, #60/99

2014 Bowman Platinum, #19/47

2015 Topps Heritage Minors, #23/34 -- This one's my favorite. The card design is in my Top 10 from Topps and the uniform top is similar to a throwback. The whole card has a vintage-esque vibe to it, you know, besides the gold foil stamp and what not.

It only took ten days to turn three unwanted Meadows into three VOGELMONSTERS. That's a pretty quick turnaround if you ask me.

It was an honest mistake and I'm just happy to have my cards. Glorious Vogelbach cards!

But, wait! That's not all!  The seller slipped in a pack Topps 2020 Series 1. Not needed, but totally appreciated.
I'm not going to buy and packs this year. That's my thing. I'm forty-four days in to the new year and going strong.  Yet, if someone wants to gift me a pack . . . well, that's something different altogether.

So, here's the highlights. We'll start with my first card from a pack for 2020:
 Hey, a rookie I've heard of before!  Not a bad way to start a pack!

I also found this guy in the pack.
 Two Blue Jay fledglings. Nice.

And then there was this:
I have a feeling this pack was meant for someone north of the border. Wow. 

Here's another checklist.
 I guess I didn't realize last year's All-Star batting practice jerseys were sleeveless. Huh.

How about a second future star?
I liked the brazen future star font of the late 80's. This is way too subtle for me. 

Rookie Cup!
This fourteen card pack is bringing the young talent!

1985 Topps is an underrated design in my book.
The Willie Mays card is a sweet pull if you ask me. 

 Topps, from what I have seen, did a most excellent job this year with photo selection and cropping.
Ha!  No Vogelbach in the pack, but I did pull a Kike card!  I don't think gcrl needs the base card, but I'll send it to him anyways.

I tell you what, I'm not into using my blog space as a promotional tool, but here's the business card of the Ebay seller. Yes, he mixed up the packages. But, he fixed it as quickly as possible, owned his mistake, paid for ALL the shipping, and tossed in a free pack of cards to make sure I had a good experience.
If you're looking for an Ebay breaker who does an honest break and treats their customers right, then give Sport Card Breakers a shot.

Have a great Valentine's Day, everyone!


  1. Glad to hear you got your cards. I forgot Vogelbach was in the Cubs system at one point. That Heritage Minors card looks really good too.

  2. Good that this resolved quickly and to your liking. BTW, I'll dropping your 2020 Vogey in the mail soon.

  3. Glad to see it got sorted out so quickly.

  4. Glad everything worked out in the end. I'm like you, I won't be buying much in the way of packs this year either (at least until Ginter, then it's all bets off).

  5. Kudos to the seller for making it right. Everybody makes mistakes...if a company will do what they can to fix theirs, and maybe even add a bonus for your troubles, they deserve our business.

    That Heritage Minors card really is great. And a Willie Mays is ALWAYS a good pull!

  6. Those are some fantastic Vogelmoster autos! It's great to see that Sport Card Breakers took care of things and gifted you a good pack for the inconvenience. Well done!

  7. Glad there was a happy ending to this story.

  8. Faith in humanity restored! Glad to see that not only did the seller make it right, they made it better. That's the way to do it!

  9. Oh man that Smokies card is wonderful. Thanks for sharing the 2020 Series One pack. That was very generous of the guy and I'm glad that it was all resolved.

  10. Love the Smokies auto! Happy this turned out well for you. Most sellers have the desire to make it right with their buyers. Throwing in the pack was beyond what I would've expected.
