2 Hanger Heritage high box break (massive hit alert!)

I had a Modell's gift card for 50 dollars that I had won at Fantasy Fest last year. I drunkenly threw a nerf football into a trash can and whoever sponsored that booth (pretty sure it was a car dealership) gave me a gift card. Fantasy Fest is an event thats happened the last few years towards the end of summer held down  by the stadiums at Xfinity live and they have different activities and sports people show up. It's pretty cool (and free!). For those that don't know Modell's is just a local sporting goods store. I went to one on my lunch break cause I wanted to buy a volleyball for the upcoming season. (I am captain of my team, we should be decent this year) Anyway, at Modell's near the checkout they had 2 Heritage High hanger boxes so I grabbed those and a bunch of hockey cards. I left those. Grabbed one other thing which I will show later.

I opened the first box and got nothing crazy but as I was free rolling due to my exceptional Nerf skills I was not upset.

The Miggy was the big hit in the first box. I do like the decal edges though. I now have that one and the Ohtani rookie. Gotta give Greg Holland a shout out. He had some major arm issues and seems to have gotten right this year and has had a really great start this year with Arizona.

Here is the big hit in the 2nd one. I gotta admit I saw the redemption blue and got a little excited. I was hoping for a big big name but it's cool pretty happy to hit a rare card.

Met starting shortstop Amed Rosario Auto Relic (from what I understand these are numbered out of 25) The odds on the box say 1:6,763 boxes!! Craziness! Couldn't believe a random hanger in a sporting goods store had such a rare card in it. I haven't redeemed it yet since it isn't a Phillies player so is there is a Met fan out there that wants to trade or buy I will be open to it.

Thanks for reading! What's your best retail hit? I think this is mine. I've hit some big hobby cards but usually not anything this rare out of retail. I did hit a numbered Austin hays auto from Topps Chrome which is nice but not nearly as rare as this.


  1. Nice score. My biggest retail hit was a Neil Walker autograph out of Opening Day. The odds for OD autos in retail were like 1 per case. I was pretty stoked because not only was it a rare hit, but a player I actually collect.

  2. I might be tempted to give you a few bucks for that, or maybe a trade.

    Best retail hit by far was a Mark McGwire auto from a marked-down hanger box, numbered to 25. I did pull a Nola auto once, and he might end up being a comparable star although that one’s not numbered.
