PressTine Baseball Trading Crads



"While you are in America could you buy some baseball cards? ...I will give you the money!"
One of the pitfalls in asking people from the UK to buy baseball cards while they are visiting the US, usually Florida, is that they will sometimes return with these PreeTine repacks. I am usually hoping for packs and I am not that fussy, encouraging them to look in Walmart or Target, even Toys 'R' Us for the latest cards. However the PreeTine packs will be filled with cards that I am sure will come the late 80's -early 90's era 'Junk Wax'.
I must add that I appreciate the effort people have taken to actually find the cards, nevertheless these packs will not yield cards to fill my wants list.
The last time I received some of these, there was 20 cards in the pack, so the number has bumped a little. More cards for your money?
And the packs were purchased from a service station in Florida. A service station?

I have three packs and each pack contains 30 'genuine collectible trading cards'

Pack 1:
1983 Donruss Glenn Gulliver Orioles

1983 Donruss David Palmer Expos
1984 Topps Pat Putnam Mariners
1986 Fleer Lance McCullers Padres

2004 Donruss Extra Jody Gerut Indians
2009 Topps Tug Hulett Mariners
2013 Topps Johnny Giavotella Royals
2015 Bowman Gary Brown Giants



So these were much better than I expected. I collected the Flashback Friday cards, so it was surprise to find a card to add to the collection plus a couple of Red Sox. The 'Who to Watch' die cut cards from Fleer Tradition are nice looking cards as well.
Overall a better selection of cards but the majority, roughly half the packs, were Junk Wax.

2016 Allen and Ginter blaster

Before opening this blaster, I had a look at what people were saying about the years offering. Some real mixed reviews and collectors have tired of the same format after 11 years.
I collected the whole set in 2010, firstly the base set, knocking out a few short prints along the way and then going after the inserts and I will admit, once is enough. 
Allen and Ginter is always a lovely looking set and an eclectic mix. Where else would you find a Hot Dog eating champion, fitness instructor and political analyst and that is not the start of a joke however there are a fair few comedians thrown in for good measure. 
Though if you are a baseball card collector, these obscure cards might be of little or no interest. 
Saying that,  I really like cards that are printed on material other than card and this set includes wood, metal and cloth minis. 
The 2016 Allen and Ginter base set consists of 351 cards,including the 51 short prints.
There are five different parallels: Mini, Glossy, Mini Exclusives, Mini Cloth and Mini Metal.
There are many inserts, The Numbers Game, Baseball Legends, Natural Wonders, Mascots in the Wild, Ferocious Felines, Laureates of Peace, Subways and Streetcars, US Mayors, Skippers, Artist Originals, Rip Cards and Double Rip Cards.
There is also a very limited 1/1 Greenland Explorer insert.
The Red Sox checklist includes:
#57 Jim Rice
#81 Brian Johnson RC
#87 Craig Kimbrel
#109 Eduardo Rodriguez
#134 Henry Owens
#151 David Ortiz
#184 Mookie Betts
#187 Carl Yastrzemski
#237 Dustin Pedroia
#255 Nomar Garciaparra
#263 Hanley Ramirez
#264 Xander Bogaerts
#270 David Price
#322 Ryan LaMarre SP, RC
#346 Pablo Sandoval SP

I have a blaster, which contains 8 packs and each pack has 6 cards.

#86 Adam Jones Orioles
#154 Ervin Santana Twins
#179 Jen Welter Coach mini

2017 Topps Heritage Blaster

2017 Topps Heritage is a 500-card set based on the design of 1968 Topps, which consists of 400 base cards and 100 short prints. Unfortunately what is become the norm  for Topps is the Gimmicks, Errors, and Variations. The checklist for these is quite big with 25 Action Image Gimmicks, undisclosed but about 25 Black Dot Gimmicks, about 6 Single-Player Rookie Gimmicks, about 15 Throwback Gimmicks, 6 Errors and 7 Traded cards. I am guessing but they must be popular with Topps including this type of card again and again. 
There are two Parallels- Chrome and mini.
There are a number of different inserts, New Age Performers, Then and Now, Baseball Flashbacks,  News Flashbacks, 1968 Topps Game, 1968 Bazooka, 1968 Topps Discs, 1968 Topps Game Rookies,  1968 Topps 3D, 1968 Topps Posters, which I prefer than the Gimmicks, particularly the oddball versions like Bazooka, Discs and 3D perhaps I am alone in this. Although most are limited, exclusive  or only available as a hobby box loader.

The Red Sox checklist consists of:
#2 Dustin Pedroia / Mookie Betts / Jose Altuve LL
#4 Edwin Encarnacion / Albert Pujols / David Ortiz LL
#10 Corey Kluber / J.A. Happ / Rick Porcello 2 variations
#125 Steven Wright
