Taking a look back at the year that was 2009. When 2009 Topps heritage came out in early March I purchased 2 Hobby boxes after 3 weeks they never showed up. So I contacted Ebay and they gave me a full refund. With that money I ended up buying 5 retail boxes 2009 Heritage. Then when I got the boxes the 3rd box I opened 3 packs in I realized 7 of the 8 cards matched from all 3 packs. So I investigated and found out that those 7 cards were the Super short prints. I continued to open 4 more packs with exact same luck. The only pack in the box that didn't contain these cards were the bonus pack. I could not believe my luck. I ended up pulling 49 of the Super SPs. I was shaking with excitement and told my wife if I broke $4,000 selling these cards I'd buy her something nice. I ended up having sold 48 of them Ebay for over $4,800. With that money I bought my wife diamond earrings & have purchased over 60 boxes baseball cards in the last 9 months and it has been a fun run. I had some great pulls and some real crappy ones. Before this year I never purchased more then 15 boxes so these 49 cards have helped me quadruple my baseball card habit. Over the next few days I'll be taking a look at my pulls of 2009. I have also put a good chunk of this money into my Phil Hughes collection. Imagine what I would have got if those first 2 boxes of Heritage showed up on my door step. I guess it must have been karma!
