Picked Up A Peek

I didn't think I had a shot at this one.  2018 Opening Day features some very short-print cards in an insert called Dugout Peeks.  The odds are one for every 1,791 packs.  Those are some very long odds for a set that is supposed to be an entry level set.

Search Ebay for "2018 Zobrist Peek" now and you'll find just one listed and three more that have sold.  While I bought mine on Ebay, it is not one of the four.

The seller didn't do a very good job of listing the card.   Zobrist's name wasn't in the auction title.  Thanks to that omission, there were not many eyeballs on the auction and I was able to get the card for half the price of what the others are going for.

There is one more SSSSP out there, a Kris Bryant Stadium Signatures card.  It's odds are slightly better, at 1:1572 packs, but because its Bryant, the prices are higher.  The sold ones on Ebay went for at least $50.  I don't think I'll run across a deal on that one.

So that should wrap up Opening Day for me.... 18 Cubs cards.


  1. I feel like I won the lottery when I find a card on the cheap that hasn't been advertised correctly. Good for you for snagging the Zobrist!

  2. Nice score! I pulled just one Dugout Peeks in my case(not the Zobrist), which is about the right odds.

  3. Congratulations on finding 18 cards! I'm at 13, but my goal is only 17, so I'm hopeful. :)

  4. Gotta love it when sellers list cards with poor descriptions. Although it's sometimes sad to see... our wallets are always smiling. Congratulations on the purchase.
