2011 Topps Tier 1 Baseball Case Recap & Value Review

Released in November of last year, 12 box cases can still be found under $1,000 – so this is still on the radar of many box breakers and case flippers. The potential for big hits is here in this product, especially in the rare parallel cards that are available in almost every sub-set. Many of the autograph cards however, are serial numbered to ‘high’ numbers like 999 and 699 … which doesn’t make them very attractive on the secondary market – and that is reflected in the values below.

This is one case:

Danny Duffy #/999 2.99
Johnny Peralta #/699 6
Bret Gardner Crowd (Exch) Gold 20
Brandon Gyer #/999 2

Estimated Revenue If Sold On eBay: $345.49

Overall, this would probably be a risky break if you were trying to sell it for a profit. Even including some of the base cards (not priced above) – your PayPal and eBay fees would wipe out any benefit from that, so you’d be left with $200 if you were lucky. Collectors would be wise to just buy the cards they like on the open market. While this is just one case reviewed on YouTube, it probably is about average for most cases during this year of Tier One baseball.
