The Breakdown: What's In A 2014 TCSP 5 STAR DIAMOND CUTS Hobby Box+GIVEAWAY

There is a card company that you may or may not have heard of putting out some pretty cool products. If you haven't heard of TCSP you should go check them out. Yes, there product may not be licensed by leagues, but they have some pretty nice looking cards out on the market and not to mention some pretty unique ones as well such as an autograph of Eminem. You can't find that in any other card product.

Today, I was lucky enough to get my hands onto one of their products and will be able to share it with you! I busted a hobby box of 2014 5 Star Diamond Cuts Hobby Box. Each box comes with 7 cards and two hits. Most boxes carry an msrp under $50 and all of the cards in the box are numbered. Base cards are to 35 and everything else is lower. So there is great value to find.

Here is how I did:

One thing that really caught my attention about these cards is what they are printed on. It was not cheap card stock. These cards are printed on what TCSP calls "super stock". They claim "you can drop the card and it won't damage and that it can also withhold 50 pounds of pressure because it's top of the line." They also say these "cards will stay mint for a long time". I tend to agree. These are well made and extremely thick. The card surface has a rough but plastic smooth feel. Its pretty cool.

As for my thoughts on the product, I think despite being unlicensed by the league, they have a nice design despite missing the logos. I would have liked to seen the writing on Veteran and Prospect a bit smaller but other than that they do pretty good for what they got. The card-stock is completely outstanding and the cost is really well for the amount of low numbered cards you get in return especially since all of the cards were numbered to 10 in this box for base. Not to mention two hits that were numbered to 5. You can find big name autos to such as Yasiel Puig and Derek Jeter.

Also, less a product is made, it drives up value on the cards because it makes them rarer and with only a limited number of cards made per each player and a good price it makes a great product for everyone in the hobby. It would have been interesting to see how this product would have been if it was licensed by MLB.

Now onto the giveaway, I am giving away these 2 cards including the cut signature auto #d to 5!!!!
