My First Official Giveaway: 2017 Topps Heritage Baseball 5 Box Break!


To celebrate the upcoming release of 2017 Topps Heritage Baseball, The (Pedestrian) Collector is having a giveaway!



2017 Topps Heritage is due for release March 1st. I have pre-ordered five boxes from Blowout Cards (by converting COMC cash), and I expect to have hundreds of duplicate base and insert cards. There will likely be lots of parallels and variations within the five boxes, but we'll get to those in a minute.


I want to help out all of you team and/or player collectors, so I will be giving away up to 20 cards from 2017 Topps Heritage to each blogger who participates.

How do you participate? It's quite simple.

This is my tenth consecutive day posting an entry on this blog. All you have to do is comment on any of my other February posts and you'll "earn" ten cards.

Follow my other blog The Pedestrian Writer and you'll receive an additional five cards.
Comment on one of my posts there, and you'll earn five cards


Then comment on this post with your team request. (You can also request certain players and card numbers, as long as they don't overlap with other requests.)

Once you've commented, send me an e-mail (sutherlandct @ gmail) with your address. When the boxes arrive, I will send you all of my duplicate base cards for the team you requested, plus some inserts if possible. (I might even throw in some extras from past years' sets.)

That's it. Comment, follow, e-mail...get free cards. Easy enough, right?


As for the parallels, variations, relics, etc... I will scan and discuss all of those cards once I open the boxes. Many of them will be available for trade, and I can always hold off on sending your freebies if you are interested in trading for some of the hits.

*Please note: short prints will not be available for trade unless I somehow get duplicates. My main goal is to build the entire 500-card set, SP's included.


This post will remain at the top of my blog until 2017 Topps Heritage arrives at my door, at which point the giveaway will be closed. If you have any questions please leave me a comment and I'll answer ASAP. 

  
 Get your Heritage here!

  3. I don't if it counts or not, but if you get any buybacks that you're not overly fond of, I would very much be interested in them.

    1. You got it! I still have your address from the Christmas card giveaway (which is why I call this my first "official") You said you collect Brodeur..I have a couple dupes (including the Net Cam card) I can add; let me know if you want those as well.

      Delete
  7. I've got three boxes coming in, so I don't want to claim any dupes (hopefully I won't need them!). However, should you pull any Ranger variations, I'd be interested in trading for them! Thanks! (judsonmeeks AT gmail DOT com)

    1. I'll let you know if I do. And I'm holding that Yu Darvish jersey card for you. I think I tried to get in touch with you but couldn't find your e-mail anywhere on your blog.

  8. Five boxes? Super jealous. Can't wait to see what kind of goodies you pull. I'd be interested in Oakland Athletics dupes.

    1. Its not something I normally do, but I've been looking forward to this set for years. I'd be happy to set aside the A's for you. E-mail me your address - I'd like to break the ice on a trade if we can.

  9. Two questions:

    When you say you're giving away cards to each blogger who participates, do you have to have a blog? Or is just being a Blogger commenter enough?

    Does the fact that I commented on the Presidents post yesterday count, or only going forward?

    If I'm eligible, I'd be looking for Mets cards. Thanks.

    1. Good questions, and thanks for commenting.

      You don't need to have your own blog to participate, if you're following/commenting on mine you're eligible. I'll count your previous posts, I'm not picky. E-mail me your address and I'll hold all my Mets dupes for you.
