I stated in my 2015 goals that I would reverse box Topps Tribute again this year (unless I despise the checklist), but also wanted to reverse box another high end product. I have been seeing a lot of hits pop up for 2014 National Treasures and gotta say, I'm hooked.
I will be doing a reverse box for National Treasures this year despite the $425 box price tag. Every box guarantees 4 autographs, 1 booklet, and a combination of 3 other cards (auto, relic, gem)
Many of the jersey and bat relics are numbered to 99, but for some of the more scarce Hall of Famers, they have relics numbered to 25 or less.
|2014 National Treasures 6/25 BAT RELIC|
The very first card I received in the mail from my recent eBay winnings is none other than the Great One, Roberto Clemente Walker.
This bat relic of Roberto marks my 15th unique bat relic of the Hall of Famer and is numbered 6/25. It cost me more than the $53 allowed per card to make this a successful reverse box, but I have confidence that I can pick up some other Pittsburgh Baseball Club members for a significant amount less than that. At only $9 over the limit per card, I am feeling pretty good about my chances so far.
That leaves me $363 more to complete the reverse box.
