I always like to see your ripping retail videos just to see if you ever get anything. I rarely buy retail, but a few weeks ago I did buck that trend. I bought a box of 2007 artifacts from a retail store (it might have been an old hobby box). I was fortunate to get a Roger Clemens autograph (autofacts). It, by far, was my best pull ever from a retail store.

Hey Chris,

Is there a variation version of Card # US15 Justin Verlander AS if there is i think I might have it because the card of verlander that I pulled was way diffrent then the one you pulled in the video. The card that I have has Verlander,Firlder, Miguel Cabrera on it. Please let me know if it is a variation.

Yep, that’s a variation card.

Hi Chris,

What can you tell me about the Obama or Romney cards. I checked the Topps web site and could not find anything about it. On the backe of the card there is a code that you enter.

Romney and Obama both have 50 cards 1 for each state. Presidential Predictor cards will have a code on the back that can be entered online. Once the election is over, there will be a prize awarded to one winner for each state — a total of 50 prizes, a patch card of the next president, will be awarded.

Hey, Chris,

I always enjoy your ripping retail segments. I am 56 years old and have been collecting since 1963! I have over 9.8 million cards that have overtaken my house and storage units. My wife puts up with my great passion- card collecting!
I am a teacher and have oftentimes taken my classes to Spring Training as a reward here in Arizona. I have some Reggie Jackson stories that will make your national experience seen trite, compared to what he has done to adoring students asking for a simple autograph.
Please try to contact me if you have the time to touch base on my collection- Reggie- and Beckett opportunities.

Thanks again for all that you bring to the hobby!!
David DeStefano
