Ozzie Smith 1979 Topps Rookie Card Pulled by Vintage Breaks [VIDEO]

Ozzie Smith 1979 Topps Rookie Card Pulled by Vintage Breaks [VIDEO]

The Wizard made an appearance on Vintage Breaks West this week! Charlie G broke a wax pack of 1979 Topps baseball and pulled one of the nicest-centered Ozzie Smith rookie cards we've seen. Check out the video of the pull and see how you can hop into our next break.

Charlie G did his best Phil Rizzuto impression while breaking a 1979 Topps baseball wax pack on Vintage Breaks West this week! "HOLY COW" was the first thing Sir Charles said when saw this VERY well-centered Ozzie Smith rookie card.




Ozzie has a dinged corner but the centering almost as spectacular as The Wizard's glove work back when he won a Gold Glove every year from 1980 to 1992! You can see Smith in his Padres uniform on that 1979 Topps card. You may recall Ozzie as a Cardinal but he began his career in San Diego where he made an all-star team and won a Gold Glove. He shined as a Cardinal as he made 14 All-Star teams, won 11 more Gold Gloves, an NLCS MVP Award, and won the World Series in 1982. This card won't get a PSA 10 with the corner but should grade well! The PSA Pop report has only FIVE 10's on the list.


Congrats to Aaron for landing Ozzie in spot 11! Is there anything cooler than only buying one spot in a break and landing THE card everyone wants? We do have more spots available in a 1979 Topps pack if you're looking to try and pull a pack-fresh Ozzie rookie, too - just click here:


Come travel back in time when Topps still put gum in a pack, you put rubber bands around your stack of cards and stored them in a shoe box, and you rocked out to My Sharona by The Knack.


Vintage Breaks offers THE BEST VALUE IN BREAKING.

When you check out for a spot on the site, the price you see is the price you pay. Taxes and shipping are included!  Your cards always come protected in holders.  The last time you mailed a package out had to have set you back more than three bucks, right?  If you buy a $3.00 spot, you get your card holdered and shipped for that price.

Lack of product in stores has been a problem; we see the same empty shelves that you do.  If you can't find cards, Vintage Breaks is your solution.

FUN!  Cards are our passion!  Isn't is just more fun to chat with other collectors? Come hang with us and other collectors just like you during our breaks!
