    2017 Diamond Kings Box Find of the Year

    I picked up one box of 2017 Diamond Kings today. I had never bought them so I wasn't sure what to expect. I collect Red Sox cards, so I was excited to pull an Andrew Benintendi rookie card, and a few other Sox cards out the packs. I was however disappointed at first in the lack of quality inserts in the rest of the box. There were a few, but I didn't think it was worth the $20 sale price. After I had flipped through the cards again I went back to look at the Benintendi base card that I had put aside. Upon second glance I noticed in silver cursive on the front the words "One of One". My jaw dropped. That's probably why there were a low number of inserts. I hit the mega card for a Red Sox collector this year. I have no idea what it could be worth. I have never pulled a 1/1 out of a pack before, never mind the player everyone in Boston is trying to find. It went right into a holder, but I am not sure yet if I am going to sell it, have it graded, or keep it as part of my collection. It is too soon to process it.

    Good thing you spotted that as the One of One writing on that is NOT easy to spot. That can easily be overlooked when flipping through cards.

    LOL, you speak the truth. I had a Zack Britton 1/1 sitting in my dime box until I thumbed through it and noticed it was a 1/1. That could have been a $40 mistake.

    I totally missed it the first time through. And even looked at it front and back and was in the process of looking it up on ebay thinking it was a base card when the light reflected off the silver writing.
