A little bit of Elite Extra Edition luck

A little bit of Elite Extra Edition luck
After having seen the boxes of '12 Elite Extra Edition sitting on the shelf at Target for the past few weeks, I was finally sucked in by the two guaranteed autos.

In terms of autos, I wasn't impressed or surprised at just how lackluster they were - Slade Smith /799 and Tim Lopes /799. Fortunately, I landed a third "hit" from the box. And to make it better it's #1/10 ... officially my lowest serial number. The only notable base card I got was Almora, but all in all worth the $30.

Not too bad. Nice 1/10 hit and I kinda like Slade's autograph!

I bought a box last week .... 2 autos Alex Mejia 47/50 die cut and Hoby Milner 157/799
Not bad ... Not good ... Not impressed, but not upset either. I guess neutral Smile
I could post pics if you are interested.

Topps should send me Flowers and Candy this Valentine's Day, because they've been screwing me pretty regularly throughout the year. Smile

I've kind of just realized Elite is a lot like Bowman ... you really don't have any idea how good you actually did for three or four years.

I actually pulled those same two autos, so I was glad for a Tigers PC hit.

For sure, I definitely want to see the die cut. Plus it's always fun to see what these guys sigs look like.

Did you get them from the same box?

Here's what I got from my Elite blaster. Not bad compared to others ... I've done much worse!

Those die cut autos are sharp looking. Thanks for sharing.

I'm definitely up for trading it. The only problem is it isn't listed in the OPG yet, although the rest of his cards are, so I'm not able to add it. Any Twins autos available?

I don't remember, honestly ... I think I busted three of them ... although I've noticed that inserts/hits tend to fall in the same "runs" in retail.
