Transcending Into Opening Day!

Now that the season is getting underway, hopefully I can make it to a few games this season. I got to three NPB games and three Shikoku Island League games last year, so perhaps I can match that in quantity, and hopefully quality!

Wait, what's that? Not your ordinary Topps parallel, is it? This is a Transcendence VIP Party 1/1 stamped with the 2017 All-Star Game logo. And while some cards apparently aren't actually 1/1, this seems to not be on that list. And that might remain my only card from a Transcendence release for a long time. This is one of the cards given away at the party in so-called "Silver Packs". Other than the foil stamping on the front, it's the same as any other regular Topps card. But it's still cool to have a card that ultimately came from a $25,000 pack.
Happy Opening Day!


  1. Oh no, another parallel I have to live in fear of existing for the 2017 Torrens card.

    1. There are at least partial lists of what cards were given away at the Transcendent party. I don't know for sure, but I doubt every card from the flagship set was used - it seems like lots of Bowman and other sets were included too.

  2. $25,000 pack (of non-vintage trading cards). Donald Trump is residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Two things I'd thought I'd never see.
