    Believe it or not my best pull was a 1955 Bowman Jerry Snyder. I know this card is not worth much and the condition is not that great. However, I found this card in a floorboard in the attic of a house that my great grandfather built. How it got there? I don’t know. Who did it belong too? I don’t know. None the less it is definitely a PC card.

    I bought a pack of 86/87 Fleer basketball about 10 years ago and hit a Clyde Drexler RC he is the nicest guy I ever met and my favorite player.

    I want to say my Wayne Gretzky rookie card but that is from 1979 and we didn’t call it a ‘pull’ back than. From the last few years, I would have to say my 2010-11 Certifed Immortals Mirror Green #4/5

  4. Derek February 21, 2013 at 4:40 pm #

    My favorite pull was from Upperdeck , It was a 1/1 Babe Ruth Film piece.. It was just very cool!

    2012 Bowman Chrome Soler autograph, nothing special but my favorite prospect right now. And it was from you guys in case that gets me bonus points, lol.

    I would have to say that the best pull that my wife and I have had was a 2012 Topps Finest BB Bryce Harper Jumbo Patch Auto card /99. My wife was the one that opened it out of 2 packs we ordered. Ever since then she has been known as the “card ninja” in our house.

    If it wasn’t for her supporting me and finding great cards like that, neither of us would be collecting 🙂

  9. Young Kim February 21, 2013 at 4:46 pm #

    The best card by far that I pulled was a Shaq Frequent Flyer insert from 97Hoops. It was my first BIG pull, worth over $30 bucks on Beckett when I pulled it. I’ve since pulled a Kobe HRX Auto, Durant HRX, Nick Toon Auto Superfractor, Andrew Luck Crown Royale RPA /49, Kobe GS Auto, Julius Irving SPx Auto and a lot of other HUGE hits, but the Shaq is still my favorite.

    Back in 1991 my wife sent me out to pick a couple of things from the convenience store. I bought a single pack of 1991 Upper Deck from the local WaWa along with her stuff and pulled a Hank Aaron Baseball Heroes Auto. It was awesome. On the card and hand numbered. First time I had ever pulled something that cool and still have not duplicated that feat or feeling.

  11. Thomas R February 21, 2013 at 4:48 pm #

    The best card I ever pulled was a 2011 finest jacoby ellsbury die cut xfractor /10!!! I pulled this from my FIRST EVER HOBBY BOX a little over a year ago and I was amazed! I didn’t even quite understand how lucky I was since it was my first hobby purchase!

  12. Dustin Broostin February 21, 2013 at 4:49 pm #

    I have 2 huge pulls in my 20+ years of collecting. Back in 2009, I bought a box 2008 Triple Threads football and pulled a Matt Ryan triple patch emerald auto #/75. I ended up selling it and making a nice profit over what I paid for the box.

    As a life long Vikings fan, I have been wanting an AP auto. A buddy of mine bought 5 boxes of 07 Aspire, hoping to pull an AP auto, himself. I offered to buy the box for a little more than he paid. About 6 packs in, sat an AP auto!

  14. Shawn Welker February 21, 2013 at 4:50 pm #

    Maybe not the best, but the Contenders Cracked Ice Andrew Luck auto /20 drew a lot of oohs and aahs during my break a few weeks ago. Thanks for sharing, too, btw. I love new breakers. Fun & Affordable Group Breaks on FB. 🙂

  15. Jason Cooper February 21, 2013 at 4:51 pm #

    My best pull has to be The Derek Jeter Sp Rc. Buyback auto #d93 From the 2010 Upper Deck Sp Retail Pack! Was so Stoked to see that!!!!! I pulled it the year they won the world series!

  16. Bob Sirtak February 21, 2013 at 4:52 pm #

    The best card my daughter and I ever got was in a break. We had the Astros…The guy pulled a Nolan Ryan auto with patch…Never got the card..The guy said he was keeping it…I have been fighting with Ebay ever since…My last time doing breaks with anyone!!! My daughter cried!

  17. Tim Smith February 21, 2013 at 4:52 pm #

    As far as value, probably Adrian Peterson Topps DP&P Chrome Refractor RC. But pulled a 2013 Topps Andrew McCutchen Cut to the Chase insert the other day. Pretty sweet card for a Pirates fan.

  18. Gavin February 21, 2013 at 4:53 pm #

    Pulled the Product chase card out of the first finest UFC product! Pulled a 1/1 booklet auto of Georges St. Pierre! Amazing card. Made a ufc website too

    In a matter of days in 2010 I pulled both variations of the Sam Bradford Contenders auto RC’s from the same LCS.

  20. Ted Dastick Jr. February 21, 2013 at 4:56 pm #

    My favorite player is Will Clark, been collecting him for around 25 years now to the tune of somewhere over 3,000 unique cards.

    Back in 1996 Donruss Signature came out at *gasp* $10 a pack! I figured I HAD to give it a shot at least once, so I grabbed a pack at Kmart (they sold them in blister packs) and out of the massive checklist, guess who I pulled? To this day, I still can’t believe I pulled it! To heck with your Ruths and Mantles, this is easily the best card I could have ever pulled.

  21. Stan February 21, 2013 at 4:57 pm #

    2011 Topps Chrome Blue Refractor Stephen Strasburg auto. Very cool!

  22. Scott miles February 21, 2013 at 5:00 pm #

    The best card I have ever pulled was a Bryce Harper auto patch,from USA baseball,#’d to 99.I also have 2 other Bryce Harper auto’s from USA baseball.I think he’s gonna be one of the great one’s( I hope).I love collecting and have been collecting for over 30 years.

  24. Justin Fowler February 21, 2013 at 5:06 pm #

    I have pulled a lot of case hits from one box orders from you guys. My favorite is hard to say, but I would choose between the 2010-11 Elite Black Box Basketball where I pulled a Black & Blue Signature of Bill Russell #’d 10/10 or the Rookie Hard Hats clear acetate auto I pulled of Russell Wilson #’d /99. I love that guy.

    My favorite local hobby shop pull with be the 2011-12 Preferred Basketball of Ty Lawson’s Silouhette Prime. It’s a beautiful card. The booklets are why I bought Preferred to begin with. Nothing is better than great used memorabilia.

    I could list several more. I always love buying boxes because you never know what you’ll get. It’s like Christmas!! Lol.

    2000-01 Topps Chrome Basketball Final Piece Game Jersey Refractor

    Ron Harper hand numbered 2 of 10 – okay… it is not the best hit … Shaq might have been better but Ron has won a couple of Championships, too…

    It was a box from Dacardworld. 😉

    Never again had such hot hands… perhaps in the future??? Who knows?

  26. Ben Rhoades February 21, 2013 at 5:09 pm #

    Favorite pull was a Scott Rolen autograph from Upper Deck! He is my favorite player and its a sweet auto.

    The best card I ever pulled was 2008-09 SP Authentic Derrick Rose Auto Patch RC (001/299), because it was a jersey numbered card.

    I sold it pretty soon after pulling it, and now regret not hanging on to it until he had his MVP season.

    From the inaugural Topps UFC series, I pulled an Anderson Silva autograph card! The money I received from selling it allowed me to buy quite a few boxes of cards.

    When I lived in Wisconsin I use to go to this shop called Dugout little expensive but the owner Rick is a awesome person always gave me free packs. I never pulled anything out of a free pack except rookie base cards. One day I bought $50 worth packs pulled nothing so he gave me 2 free packs last 2 packs of Donruss baseball first pack nothing at all second pack I started to scream Rick owner said what did u pull I still could not believe it a 1/3 Babe Ruth piece jersey and bat card book value was $300 at the time I needed the money so I sold it for full book value . I called Rick about a month ago bought few cards over phone because I no longer live in Wisconsin he still has the card personal collection and I asked what is it worth because it was so low numbered hard put a price on it but he says he was offered $1.500 for it and he refused sell it. I regret selling it but need to do what u need to do to survive in this world thank you Jeff.

    In 1978 after opening pack after pack, I finally pulled a Reggie Jackson All Star Card. I discovered baseball during the 1977 World Series and Reggie immediately became my favorite player and still is to this day. Still my favorite card of all time.

  45. FLAVIO NARDELLI February 21, 2013 at 6:13 pm #

    The biggest pull I ever had just happened last week I bought 2 boxes of the Big Bang Theory Season 3 & 4. On the first box I was down to my last 2 packs and when I opened the next to last pack I Pulled the autograph wardrobe card of KALEY CUOCO as PENNY. I was so excited that she was my favorite character in the show and never pulled one of the main characters of the show. I also heard that it was a very rare pull. Also in the same box I pulled 2 wardrobe cards whch you suppose to get one. One was a Sheldon shirt card and a dual wardrobe card of Rajesh snd Leonard. That was the best pulls I had for awhile.

    Russell Wilson slideshow auto!!!

  47. Nick February 21, 2013 at 6:20 pm #

    1997-98 Pacific Cramer’s Choice Wayne Gretzky. I bought one of those variety boxes from Kmart and out of a single pack of 1997-98 Pacific with all the cards stuck together, I could see the triangle diecut within the middle of the stack. The stack easily separated to unveil the Gretzky. At that time it was the single best card out there and still my most memorable hit

  48. Chris L February 21, 2013 at 6:21 pm #

    Crosby The Cup Rookie card

  49. David Hartman February 21, 2013 at 6:26 pm #

    Easy, I was ten years old and in my first pack of 1975 topps, I pulled a George Brett (saved all my cards obviously). By the way, my first pack was 1969 topps baseball !

  50. Craig O February 21, 2013 at 6:26 pm #

    Andy Van Slyke Topps Fan Favorites auto. Van Slyke has been my favorite player since I started collecting in ’88. I have every single card of his (including odd-ball issues and regional issues) from during his playing days, and it was awesome pulling an on-card auto (that I didn’t have to mail to him to get) on a nice new, great looking card!
