Jonathan came in looking for a BIG ONE and decided 2013 Topps Five Star at ONLY $349.99 was the way to go.  Here is Jonathan with two redemptions worth waiting for: a Yasiel Puig Autograph Jersey Patch Gold Parallel #d/10 and a Yu Darvish 3 Piece Auto Book.



At the Super Hit Factory, you don't get just any Huge Hit, you get a Super Hit.  We specialize in the first card (ex: 1/25), the last (ex: 25/25) or the jersey number (ex: RG3 12/25).  Chris tried a box of 2013-14 Upper Deck UD Black Basketball for ONLY $309.99.  Here's Chris with his UD Black Michael Jordan Autographed Arena Book 23/23.  That's Right 23/23!


Marcus came in and said, "Charlie with all the great hits I've pulled, I've never pulled an Andrew Luck Autographed RC.  Pick me out something."  I picked a box of 2012 Topps Valor for ONLY $125 per box.  Here is Marcus with his first Andrew Luck Auto RC and it's numbered to just 50.  



A few days later, Marcus came back and tried another box of 2012 Topps Valor Football.  You guessed it, another Andrew Luck Auto RC #d/50.  And, that's why we say, "The BEST CASES in The Hobby are at Sports Cards Plus."


Dennis is a 2012 SP Signature Edition Baseball collector.  He owns over half the set, having purchased most of them on eBay. He came in looking for singles but we were out.  He mentioned the "Hot List" singles were super rare and only saw one on eBay which sold for over $600.  He saw a box of SP signature Edition on our shelf and decided he'd give The Super Hit Factory a chance.

Here is Dennis with his 1980's Hot List 1/2 Seven Autographed card of Ken Griffey Jr, Wade Boggs, Will Clark, Bo Jackson, Tony Gwynn, and Brett Saberhagen.  That's right, ONLY 2 MADE and it came out of a Super Hit Factory box!

Kenny came in today and pulled some nice stuff, but nothing worthy of a Super Hit Factory Facebook Post.  Kenny said, "I want something special.  Charlie, pick me out a pack of 2013-14 Pinnacle Basketball." 

Here is Kenny with his Pinnacle Basketball Lebron James Jamfest Artist Proof 1/1.  A Lebron Pinnacle Jamfest #d/25 sold on eBay for $76, so what is this 1/1 worth?  $500?Kenny likes to try his luck buying a pack here and there from open boxes on our counter.  Often times he will buy the last couple of packs in a box just to see what others missed.  Here is Kenny with his 1/1 Lebron James 2013-14 Pinnacle Basketball Jamfest Artist Proof Parallel.

2013-14 UPPER DECK UD BLACK BASKETBALL DELIVERS MICHAEL JORDAN, LEBRON JAMES, MAGIC JOHNSON, LARRY BIRD, BILL RUSSELL, ALLEN IVERSON & KYRIE IRVING AUTOS


Sports Cards Plus, a.k.a. The Super Hit Factory has 2013-14 UD Black Basketball Boxes for $309.99.  And, we are doing Box Break Slots at $79.99 with EVERY Slot Winning ONE Autographed Card.  All base cards will be randomly assigned.  Every slot gets one FREE Magnetic Holder.

NEWS FLASH 4/3/2014: Chris and Sports Cards Plus, a.k.a. The Super Hit Factory team up to bring you this Super Hit.  Here is Chris with his 2013-14 Upper Deck Black Basketball Michael Jordan Autographed Stadium Book 23/23.  That's right, 23/23.  At Sports Cards Plus we don't just get you any old Michael Jordan Autographed Book, you pull the 23/23.  So be like Chris.  Come to Sports Cards Plus TODAY and pull your Super Hit.


What are the odds of getting a great hit?   Here goes my estimate.  There are 45 base cards with each numbered to 175 and a silver parallel numbered to 10.  With two base cards per box, that makes about 4162 boxes and about 1387 (3 box cases) cases made.

Here is a count of autographed hits taken from our friends at Cardboard Connection:  Michael Jordan (411), Lebron James (331), Magic Johnson (257), Dr. J (259), Larry Bird (254), Bill Russell (96), Anfernee Hardaway (308), Allen Iverson (44), Grant Hill (395), David Robinson (228), Kyrie Irving (90), and Anthony Davis (105).  Total for these stars is 2778 or about 2 EVERY 3 BOXES!

2013-14-Upper-Deck-Black-Basketball-Michael-Jordan-Logo-SignaturesThe odds of getting a Michael Jordan or Lebron James Auto are better than 1 in 6 boxes.  And, in addition to the stars listed above, 2013-14 UD Black includes hundreds of autographs of Alonzo Morning, Hakeem Olajuwon, Karl Malone, Dennis Rodman, Jason Kidd, Paul George, Rajon Rondo, Dominique Wilkins, Isiah Thomas, Larry Johnson, Elvin Hayes, and more.
