Show off your best pull ever. - scamperssnickers - 12-02-2012 07:03 PM
Here's what you should do. List your best pull you ever got, if possible a photo/scan, and if you have a story to go with it post that too.

Best pull is the Geronimo 1/1 DNA card from 2011 Allen & Ginter. I was at a card show in Arlington, TX with my grandfather and decided to get a box. I talked the guy down from $90 to $75. I couldn't wait to get home to open it and I opened it in the car. When I saw it I went nuts and my grandpa just looked at me and said "I guess you pulled something good." Best. Pull. Ever.

Pulled this out of a jumbo box of 2012 Topps series 1 I picked up for my birthday. It was a redemption and they sent me #1/50. It was the quickest redemption I ever received back, took a little less than 3 weeks.

Here is my story. Back in 2004 and I don't have a scan of the card but I pulled a 1/1 Jackie Robinson cut autograph / jacket card.
I used that card plus a bunch of other cards and traded for this card:
Then fast forward to around 2010 and I saw a card on eBay that I wanted. I contacted the seller to see if he would be interested in a trade.
Did we ever work a deal! I got the original card I wanted in a deal but we did an even bigger trade:
I traded the 2004 Babe Ruth auto straight up of this 1/1 quad auto:
So my pulling the Jackie Robinson lead in a round about way to the quad auto.

Pulled these 2 back in 09' from Sweet Spot. I was opening packs at red lights when I hit the Griffey. Was so excited I did not hear the horns honking at me when the light turned green. The Jeter I hit at the LCS and the owner still has a polaroid of me, among others, on his wall of amazing hits The Griffey I sold not to long ago to support my Jeter collection and of course I still have the Jeter Glove Auto.
I miss Sweet Spot

I think the Yankee Quad auto was originally pulled by a Beckett board member who may have sold it to the guy that I traded my cards to get the quad in return.
If you are interested here are the cards I got in return on my other trades with the guy:
I also got this but sold it when I got too good an offer to turn down:
