Sorry Nic Cage, you're not in this National Treasures sequel

National Treasures, despite the lack of logos, is traditionally my favorite high end release each year. I have been fortunate to grab some nice buttons, patches, and laundry tags in past releases.

When Panini showed their designs for the 2016 version, I initially thought "meh". As the cards started to appear in my mailbox due to an uncontrollable nature of Pokemon style baseball card collecting (gotta catch them all) I began to warm up to them.

One card that caught my attention was the camo jersey & (sticker) autograph booklets numbered to 5.

The reason why I was so excited about this card in particular is that at best Cutch will have 20 autographs hit the market each year.  I'm not talking about different releases, I'm talking TOTAL autographs.  Since 2014 Cutch just doesn't sign anymore. A few sticker autographs numbered to /10 or less is the best you can hope for.

Well, I snagged the above booklet auto....

Then got this because I had placed a bid on it the same time as the best offer was submitted...

So now I have 2 of the 5 printed.  I am willing to trade one or can seek out the remaining 3.


  1. That would be amazing to have all five. Good luck!

  2. Awesome booklets! He has a great looking signature. I have 4 out of 5 serial numbered Ryan Roberts cards. I would love to get the 5th.
