    My Heritage case beat a lot of odds

    Opened my first ever full case of Heritage last Saturday. I have had years when I went crazy with Heritage, but it's been a while, and I never bit the bullet and got this much at once. When I've opened full cases in the past it ended up being a trudge, filled with that feeling that I wasn't going to hit anything good, which I didn't. Of course, those were cases like 2005 Topps Chrome and 2004 Cracker Jack, so the good stuff was pretty sparse. But this one was great. Watched a couple movies and gave most packs a close look. While I didn't pull an Ohtani red auto or anything, I was pretty happy. I just crunched the numbers on what I got (and by crunched I mean wrote down):
    Insert 1dds # pulled
    quarter 25543 1
    pilots 3464 1
    magenta 691 1
    relic gold 523 1
    flip stock 512 1
    chrome black 501 1
    100th 277 1
    mini 262 1
    color swap 205 1
    real one auto 154 1

    I am really surprised I met or beat the odds on every insert with less than 50% probability except the throwbacks and chrome golds and supers, which have really long odds. No interesting boxtoppers, though. And I haven't finished sorting the base cards, but I doubt I hit a Nickname, either. I hadn't realized how tough the Pilots autos were, and we really lucked out on the Quarter card (Kris Bryant #/5!). Of course, that was in one of the boxes my wife opened. Chick luck strikes again. Also pulled an Ohtani SP, which I've heard are 1:3 cases. I will be building the full base set plus Action photos, so I'll be posting in the trade forum soon.

    I'll be making this an annual thing for the next few years as the next few years' designs are some of my faves.

    Sweet breakdown! That KB Quarter should bring a decent price.

    So, do you risk selling the Ohtani and then buying another one later for the set?

    I have two SPs: 464, 478. They're yours if you need 'em for the set.

    And GL on your sales!

    Did you only pull 2 autos from the case? I'm pretty close to pulling the trigger on a case but first I'm checking out as many breaks as possible to see the average amount of autos pulled per case. I'm noticing most have roughly 3 autos (a couple Real One autos + a red ink or insert auto on average) per case which is an amount I'd be happy with.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    Heritage is a solid rip...just dump everything fast that's hot. SP's and variations don't hold value anymore unless you know.

    Just to correct this comment, upon looking further into some older Blowout breaks of Heritage it actually looks like most cases are yielding 1-3 autos with the majority in the 2 range.

    Yeah, I used to be a hardcore Heritage ripper. Would generally rip 2 or 3 cases of the stuff up until 4 (or so) years ago when I converted into a prospector to save money. My wax habit was becoming way too expensive.

    But I bit the bullet and relapsed today. Bought a case of Heritage! I'm filled with both excitement and dread, as I always am right before busting cases.

    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    I'm liking the Pilots and overall '69 set design...and the shiny stuff.

    Brent had 99 in 45 cases.

    I think he had some auto relics and multiple sigs, but only a handful - basically 2 per box - anything more than that is a bonus from what I see.

    I cracked one and am sitting not he other - haven't had time and haven't decided course of action yet.

    nice pulls

    heritage by the case is fun - unless you are OCD and have a need to sort the base!
