Blog Bat-Around: 5 Best Pack Pulled Hits (Cards Over Coffee Version)

There are some Blog Bat-Arounds I like so much, I do them twice. The difference this time is I am doing it with coffee.

*takes a sip*

Matt over at Diamond Jesters has sent forth a new Blog Bat-Around challenge where he posted his Top 5 best pack pulls and wanted others to do the same. I did do this already over on Sport Card Collectors, yes, I revived the blog for a day I can do that, but I wanted to do one on here as well. I have opened up packs on both blogs so figured why not do one of these for each.

Now the one I posted on Sport Card Collectors will strongly be the better one especially with the top card, but this one I feel isn't too shabby. You can read the Sport Card Collectors one HERE.

Now onto the Cards Over Coffee version.

*takes a sip, moves on with today's post*


1996 Summit Turf Team Emmitt Smith. They don't make inserts like they used to! This one is numbered to 4000. They were randomly inserted into packs.


A Case Hit with this Genesis card which also happens to be in the Coffee Card Hall Of Fame. It had to make this list didn't it?


It's Jeter, it's an X-Factor. The odds of landing an actual good player that fits my PC is not easy. I would call this a solid pull.


Tua has shown flashes of big-time stardom and then he has moments where he has you shaking your head. But, he is still on his way up and playing for a good team and coach. Pulling a good silver Prizm is something I never do, even though this is a Prizm Black meaning the value isn't as great as it would have been as an actual Prizm silver, but it's my best card of his and it's a keeper.


It's numbered to 5, Hall Of Famer autograph. Looking at the others I have on this list, it's an obvious number 1 to me.

Well, there you go. My best 5 pack pulls on this blog.

*takes a sip before finishing up today's post*

I hope all of you join in on this fun Blog Bat Around. I want to see your best pulls.

Thanks to Matt for the creative idea and for helping me come up with a post for today.

Hope all of you have a great day!....and with lots of coffee!

  1. The only ones I remember as of a couple of years ago were 2019 Topps Heritage Tatis and Guerrero out of the same pack! Happy mid-week day. Coffee time?

  2. A two-for-one special! Nicely done!

    1. Yes, it was nice. That was the last pack I opened. I still need about 55 SP cards to finish that set build.

  3. One of my best pulls was a 96 Emmitt too. Select Certified Mirror Blue. It wasn't numbered but math says there were only 50 of them. I traded it off on the old Sports Card Forum.

    1. Oh man! That would have been am awesome one to still have. I felt the blue parallels were the hardest to find. Took me forever to finish my rodney rainbow until I found a guy on Twitter who had it


Cards and coffee go together like PB&J, so don't you and leaving a comment below. Take a sip and let me know your thoughts!
