The Good Word: Once in a Lifetime – Reaction to Pulling a Zion Williamson 1/1 Autograph

“What if….?”

That’s the question that we can’t help but ask ourselves when we’re looking at packs and boxes at our local card show, hobby shop, or even retail trading card aisle.

What if I find some 2018 Topps Update Baseball packs on clearance at Walmart, Big Lots or Party City and hit a gold Ronald Acuna Jr. RC?” (hint: you can find those packs at those locations still sometimes).

What if the case hit is still in those last two remaining boxes of Panini Certified Football on the shelf at my local card shop?

What if I travel all around Western Washington to 9 different Target stores across two weekends in search of 2019-20 Panini Prizm Draft Megaboxes hoping to pull a Zion Williamson autograph but end up pulling the Black 1/1 auto?”

I guess my “What if” days are long over, and my days of singing my sad song of bad luck when opening wax are especially gone. To be honest, the whole happenstance and dumb luck that led up to revealing this once-in-a-lifetime card out of a pack while on camera as I filmed my box rips is still a bit baffling when broken down into perspective:

  1. Two weeks prior when Mega Boxes of 2019-20 Panini Prizm Draft hit retail stores, I found six at the Target closest to COMC Headquarters. Not being one to bust much basketball outside of Prizm products, nor many collegiate products, I found breaking the product to be very enjoyable (and lucrative – Megaboxes are stacked with silver prizms and colored parallels), which inspired my search for more of them locally. Oh, I pulled a Cam Reddish Color Blast SSP insert too!
  2. The weekend before I hit the Zion 1/1 I drove a giant loop around Western Washington to seven different Target stores in search of more megaboxes. I came home with only two, though I did find some 2019 Topps Holiday Baseball blaster boxes and hit a Metallic Snowflake Vladimir Guerrero Jr. /10 autograph.
  3. The only reason I had scheduled off Friday, November 8th was in anticipating of driving to Portland with some friends. Those plans fell through earlier in the week. On top of that, we had been dealing with our kitten who had gotten extremely ill earlier in the week, but had made a strong recovery on Friday morning. When I left the house on Friday, it was the first time I had gone anywhere that wasn’t COMC Headquarters or the Veterinarian Clinic in nearly a week.
  4. On a whim I decided to drive an extra eight miles out of the way to the Target where I bought the Megaboxes that held the Zion 1/1. I had never stepped foot in that Target before, but the weather was so nice out that day that I decided to take the trip east over to it despite heading home which was north.
  5. I had to ask a very helpful Target employee to open the Excell boxes sitting on the floor that hadn’t been unpacked yet. She gladly obliged, and although I’ve had others willing to do it in the past as well, I’ve had Target employees unwilling to do so until the Excell representative showed up and did it.
  6. The boxes sat on my floor for more than 36 hours while I spent the rest of my rare Friday off playing video games and opening the 12 blasters of 2019-20 NBA Hoops I had also found. I hit a Zion Williamson Rise & Shine Patch /25 in those.
  7. The only reason I was recording my break is to practice and dial in some settings on streaming software that I use for streaming video games. I had decided earlier in the month I wanted to revive my Youtube page, and basketball card breaks seemed like a good time to start.
  8. Panini had to be crazy enough to put one of the product hits in a retail box. This still baffles me. I’m so sorry to anyone who opened a bad hobby box of Prizm Draft!

As you can see, an awful lot of things had to go right (and wrong) and fall into place to prepare for this fateful 11:00pm Saturday night moment:

Having just watched my friend in the hobby KentuckyCards pull a Zion Williamson / R.J. Barrett dual auto Black Mosiac 1/1 from the same product (albeit, his was from a Hobby Box) just a couple weeks earlier, and fly it down to Dallas, Texas himself to get graded, I knew I had to do the same. So I did. 9 hours after hitting the card, I was sitting on a Southwest plane headed to the Lone Star State.

(Note: The dual 1/1 card mentioned above is being auctioned with 100% of the proceeds going to charity as of the publication of this article. Click here to view the auction.)

When I returned home, I decided to post the video and photos of the card on social media circles within the hobby – and as expected, it created a buzz, and quite a large one at that. It’s awfully strange being in the limelight for one trading card. For a Seattle kid who collects the Daniel Vogelbach‘s, Mitch Haniger‘s, and Tim Lincecum‘s of the world, the exposure and number of people who have reached out is a little overwhelming, but fun! I’ll probably never get 100,000 views and 200 followers overnight on TikTok ever again. I think I can live with that.

I’ve never had a more surreal experience in the trading card industry. I feel incredibly blessed to be able to make a living doing something that I truly love. The hobby has been incredibly good to me over my seven years with COMC, and I’ve been afforded to meet hundreds of amazing people from all walks of life, travel to several National Conventions, and share my perspective of the hobby with all of you. To hit a card of this magnitude sort of feels like a cherry on top, hence why upon pulling the card from the pack, I said several times, “I don’t deserve that card.”

I know what you’re next question is, and yes, I do plan to sell the card. As I spoke to above, I never expected to own a card like this at this stage of my life. Sure, it would be fun to keep it, potentially seeing it grow many times over in value over the years if Zion Williamson ends up being everything we think he is. But as of right now, my first priority as a newlywed is to make some memories with my wife on a proper honeymoon that this card can more than pay for. Never the less, I’m sure wherever we end up traveling to, I won’t be able to stay away from the local card shop!

Retail Therapy: 2018-19 Panini Chronicles Basketball

Welcome back to Retail Therapy, a blog series where we like to venture down to our local retailer and snag some of those trading card hangers and blaster boxes that are too irresistible pass up! We all know the drill – the odds of a big hit aren’t nearly as good as buying a hobby box at your local card shop or online, but when you’ve got the urge to rip a few packs, convenience is king!

The corner damage to the box didn’t concern us, the cards are safe within the bottom portion of the hanger.

This time around we’re taking a look at 2018-19 Panini Chronicles Basketball. Chronicles has become Panini’s catch-all set for all of the basketball products and set designs of years past that didn’t get their own release during a calendar year. If you missed opening products from sets such as Panini Marquee, Studio, Luminance, Gala, and Crusade, you’ll find loads of rookie cards that utilize these set designs and many more. It truly is one of the most fun and interesting breaks in all of the basketball trading card world, offering a much different experience focused on collecting and enjoying the hobby first.

We only managed to find two of the 22 different RC’s for Luka and Trae, but we also pulled a couple retail exclusive green parallels.

This product is absolutely dominated by rookie cards. In our five hanger packs, roughly 80% of all of the cards we pulled had an RC logo on them. There are 21 different insert sub-sets with unique designs that are entirely composed of rookie cards to be found within Chronicles. Yes, that means for some of the more popular rookies (such as Luka Doncic and Trae Young) there are 22 different rookie cards to be found.

The only non-rookie cards to be found in the product are either autographed cards, or from the 100-card Chronicles base set. The base set is the only real low point of the product, as the design is ironically hideous in contrast to all of the other great sets found within the product:

Each $9.99 hanger box yields one 30-card sealed pack.

Even though the base set is nothing to write home about, there are some gorgeous looking cards in this product. It would have been very easy and somewhat forgivable for Panini to save money by printing all the different sets on the same card stock, or cheaper card stock than the original sets, but they didn’t do that. They also did an excellent job curating and choosing which past sets to feature in the product. Crusade and Luminance stand out as being our favorites.

How could you not like the epic Crusade design?

All-in-all in our five hangers, we saw a total of 13 of the designs featured as shown in the picture above. And yes, that is in fact six different Michael Porter Jr. rookie cards! Having so many rookie cards in this product will dilute the value of these cards, and none will be able to compete with the more desirable Prizm Basketball RC’s of the world, but for those collectors looking to bolster their collection, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better product to fill up your binders and boxes. Younger collectors less focused on the value of their cards will be over the moon with this product.

In five hanger packs we did not see an autograph or relic, and our only numbered card was this Classics Allonzo Trier Purple parallel numbered to 49. However, the real fun is just enjoying this product for what it is, rather than searching out the big hits. You will likely not make your money back opening retail Chronicles products, but as long as you go into opening the product knowing that, your experience will be substantially better.

Now hobby products of this set are a different story – with two autographs falling per box from an autograph checklist that features everything from legends (Kobe, Dirk), to retired fan-favorites and stars (Sean Elliot, Marcus Camby), to active players and of course, plenty of rookies.

That said, with each hobby box you’re only going to get six packs with eight cards each, so a $100+ hobby box is going to only yield 18 more cards than a $10 hanger pack. If you’re trying to put together a particular set found in Chronicles, or stash a pile of rookie cards for a few years or decades, retail products area actually the better option. That’s what makes this product so unique.

Of course, there is no better option than simply buying the 2018-19 Panini Chronicles cards that you want on the COMC Marketplace! We have over 2,500 unique Chronicles cards in stock, and any cards you see in this blog, or any retail therapy blog for that matter can be found in our COMC_Breakhits account.

Until next time, see ya’ in the card aisle!

Rich Reminiscences: New York Life in the 70’s.

by Rich Klein

If you have ever spent any time in waiting rooms, the odds are pretty good the television station was playing HGTV. The reason is pretty simple: these programs are designed to appeal to everyone, and have no political or religious viewpoints which might upset some of the patients or guests waiting. 

Recently, the house which was used for the Brady Bunch series was purchased by that network, and all the living members of the cast have reunited as part of a series titled: “A Very Brady Renovation”. I should point out there is no mention if Cousin Oliver is going to show up near the end of the production.

But what this really proves to all of us is that we still long for the memories of seeing what appeared to be a perfect family, which for years was part of the pre-cable world, and seemingly always in reruns somewhere on our daily television dial.  We do have the memories of the original show, just as we’re also fortunate to have our memories from the sports world (some of which were kept and are still available) of our youth.

Growing up in the New York Metropolitan area in the 1970’s, we were always enthralled by the exploits of the New York Yankees and seemingly everyone in the organization, including the boisterous owner, George M. Steinbrenner. Since the Yankees were one of the best teams of baseball from 1976-81, and had all those personalities, let’s take a look back at some of the fun we had in New York in those days. 

Here’s some footage of George Steinbrenner in the early days, including the introductory press conferences.  Look how uncomfortable Mike Burke, the previous Yankees head honcho is during Steinbrenner’s speech.


For the next couple of decades Steinbrenner continued to be embroiled in controversy, and was actually suspended from baseball twice in his first two decades as the Yankees owner. The first time was for improper political donations, and the second was when Steinbrenner was involved in a scandal where he was trying to dig up dirt on Hall of Famer Dave Winfield.   Here is some audio of John Sterling, who has been a Yankees announcer for the past 30 years (albeit, he took some much deserved time off this year) breaking the news of the 1990 decision.


Of course, 1990 was such a fine season for the Yankees that Andy Hawkins pitched a no-hitter (at least according to the rules of the time) and lost on an error by Jesse Barfield.  But I digress.

Billy Martin as Yankees Manager


Although Steinbrenner hired and fired managers like a grandparent handing out cookies, the manager who kept recurring in the first 15 years of his rule was Billy Martin. Now, there might have never been anyone who loved being a Yankee more than Martin, and how he put up with indignities big and small to keep in George’s good graces was legendary. Billy had plenty of his issues, as he never met a punch he did not like to throw, or a drink he could pass up. That combo led to some interesting experiences and interesting publicized stories.  Without delving too far into details, let’s just say Billy enjoyed the not-so-quiet night life and debauchery a little too much.

So instead of writing of such events on this blog, here is a newspaper account of some of the Yankees highlights of his off-field exploits. This does not even mention the barroom fight he got in with Baseball in 1969 while managing the Minnesota Twins.

Billy;s favorite player protagonist was Reggie Jackson, the Hall of Famer who played on many post-season teams during his career. One of the myriad quotes Reggie came up with was “If I played in New York they’d name a candy bar after me“. 

Well after some twists and turns that we’ll get to later on, Reggie hit 3 homers in the final game of the 1977 World Series, and by the next opening day the Reggie candy bar was created. Having had some of those back in the day (no, it did not unwrap itself and tell you how great it was), I can assure you that it was perfectly edible, but a not great chocolate bar. In my opinion, the Pro Set Puck Chocolate was actually better, but that’s a different argument for a different day.

And now for some of the bumps along the way that Reggie faced on his way to hitting those 3 famous World Series homers. First was this infamous quote in a Sport Magazine article released a couple of months into the season. This was in a pre-social-media world where newspapers and magazines mattered just as much as the modern day facebook and twitter.

You can imagine just how well that statement went over in the Yankees clubhouse, especially since Thurman Munson was coming off an MVP season in 1976, and was a beloved figure with both teammates and fans. Supposedly by the end of the season, Reggie’s only person he could really turn to was Fran Healy. Healy was able to parlay his positive presence for all concerned to a 40-year post-playing career working in the New York area as a baseball personage. 


And of course, there was some playing drama on the field in both 1977-78. There was this famous incident where Billy Martin wanted to fight Reggie in the dugout because Reggie did not apparently hustle after this ball in the outfield.

But at the end of the season all was forgiven after 1977 World Series game 6.

If you have ever seen the footage of the game, note the top of the 9th inning. The fans are actually sitting on the fence waiting to jump on the field and celebrate/riot after the final out. Thankfully, no baseball came close to the fence, so what could have been a real disaster never occurred.

The next season Billy and Reggie had round 2. Billy got so worked up over everything that he uttered this famous line one night:  “One’s a born liar and the other one is convicted.”

Yes, seemingly we can use that line about politicians then and still today, but calling your owner “convicted” is a pretty good way not to be working in the near future. So Billy got let go, but the fan reason was so anti-Steinbrenner that a few days later at old-timers day this event occurred: 

The ovation lasted a long time and is still remembered as of the seminal moments of that era. Here are clips of some of the other famous late 1970’s moments:

No, Chris Chambliss never touched home plate, but under those circumstances who was going to take away the homer!

And I love to tease my Red Sox friends about this one:

Bill White’s understated call is still great to hear.  “Deep to Left”.   

This card featured Dent being greeted at home plate after the homer.


Sadly the next year, the Yankees lost Thurman Munson in a tragic plane crash in 1979. Jerry Narron told us at a SABR meeting that having to catch in that game was the hardest and most emotional game he ever participated in his life.

A year earlier Munson had hit this massive homer in the American League Championship Series. He was broken down, and every bone in his body was hurting, but he had that one great moment left:

A few games later the final out of the World Series was this play:

Looking back over 40 years, we can’t even imagine all the sub-plots which the Yankees were involved with.  This became the theme for the Bronx in 1977. On top of everything else, New York City was having major issues in the 1970’s:

The Bronx was indeed burning, and the Son of Sam was shooting innocent people:


And in 1976 the Daily News had this unforgettable headline:

Image result for Ford to NY Drop Dead

 And we had songs written about those pre-1970 older days in NY City:


When I first heard this Simon and Garfunkel song I understood the importance to both singers, because of the break-up they had a few years earlier.  Listen to the wonderful lyrics of Paul Simon and this song, which was recorded at the famed Muscle Shoals studio.

This was the only top 40 single for Cashman and West, who were better known as Jim Croce’s producers in those days. In case you didn’t know, Cashman is the same Terry Cashman who recorded Talking Baseball just in time for the 1981 season. 

And with that, we’ll always remember baseball is part of our life today, it was part of our life in the 1970’s and 80’s, and it was part of our life even before any of us were born.
