    Opened two packs of the Topps opening day box from texasraider loupe account.

    First pack Wander rookie
    Second pack Jesse Winker auto

    Pretty much the highlights. Two blue parallels of Anthony Bender and Teoscar Hernandez.

    I do think the odds were crushed for that product with the auto.

    I am absolutely shocked that two big 1/1s were pulled on a Whatnot giveaway night. Shocked I tell ya. The other was a Flawless Tyrese Haliburton 1/1 RPA.

    It's also super interesting that the card was pulled like two days after Drake put out the "Lambo bounty" for the Triple Logoman. I don't typically entertain conspiracies because they're always so far fetched but something smells here.

    Topps has plenty of faults/issues, but I cannot stand Panini

    texasraider does Loupe have a way to go back and watch previous rips? I've done a dozen or so in there but still new to it, but find myself completely forgetting what I pulled and having to just trust the accounts to ship it all. Is that just how it works?

    I can request certain clips but it’s a process.

    Some people screen record when their packs get ripped. Some just take screenshots

    Looks like PSA is doing away with the allocation lottery and now allowing all Collectors Club Members to send as many Economy orders as they'd like.

    I think I bought a card a guy mislabeled on eBay? He listed it as a stadium club box topper but it's a normal sized card, and it's on the checklist as a base autograph. I was under the impression that box toppers were larger cards.

    Yeah they're bigger. I got an Ohtani base box topper in last year's hobby box. Probably mislabeled it. I would message the seller. Probably an honest mistake.

    I bought that case but it was going to ship while I was out of town so I had it shipped to Ry. I was bored while the wife napped so I told him to rip a box for me

    The guy who runs the CardPurchaser is such a bitch. He has a paid discord server, and has allowed/posted bots for baby formula on their servers and is getting called out for it.

    Being a new dad, I had a few comments and he blocked me :roll:

    People 100% use the alert bots to buy formula and flip it for more. I’d bet of the percentage of people who use that bot, very very few are actually parents needing it.

    I find having any bot set for formula to be ridiculous considering the shortage.

    it's a monitor, not a bot. if you flip formula, fuck you. if you use the monitor to buy formula for yourself, i have no issue.

    I agree. But I know the hobby well enough to know it’s not all dads using that.

    Also, he’s sharing this on his own private discord people have to pay to access.
