Mantel Quality Stories: Tyson Beck

If you collect sports cards, you probably know @tysonbeck's work as an artist designing some of the industry's hottest cards, often in collaboration with top athletes like Steph Curry, Tyreek Hill and Jayson Tatum. And if you've ever tried to scoop one of his cards on release day, you know your internet speed better be fast if you're going to have a shot at owning one.

With this week's Mantel Quality Stories, hosted by @Buster, Beck takes us through how he got started creating cards, and shows off some of his favorite items in his collection, including some drool-worthy pieces tied to the Lakers dynasty of the early 2000s.

2024 Topps Chrome launch day hits

Post image 1
Post image 2

Was able to snag a Jumbo Hobby 2024 Topps Chrome box presale and was surprised (and excited) to see it land today. My autos were OK - got a nice refractor Elly base RC - but landed an Orange Wave /25 Junior Caminero which I was psyched about. First off the print, too, for those who are into that kind of thing.

Also hit a Frozenfractor - my second since they launched last year. Though last year I hit an Aaron Judge and this year it was a Connor Phillips RC. Meh. But still one of my favorite inserts.

Anyone else open any boxes yet?

The protoype Pokémon deck you never heard of 📕

Post image 1

Before Pokémon launched in the US, Trainer Deck A (aka Brock's Deck) was quietly distributed to help League Leaders get familiar with the TCG.
These decks weren't sold to the public — all cards were marked with red borders and lettering on the back to help prevent resale. But of course, that only made them more coveted over time...
Since I work at Courtyard.io and nerd out about these kinds of stories, I was hyped to see this Onix from the deck in land in our Pokémon auction this week.

Elvin Hayes 50 Greatest 1/1 Lithograph At Auction

Post image 1

Just hit the auction block. The player copies don’t come up much.
-
I think one day these will be quite rare to see ever in auction.
-
Allegedly there are 200 or so total. (50 of them are 1/1 player variations)

FMV: 100k or so IMO

Did a fun event with the folks in the title. Mitchell & Ness provided blank batting practice jerseys for customizing. I made this one for my wife. It's super cool, so I wanted to share here. Hoping to bring some more events featuring customized jerseys and tees soon.

Day 2 of 10 Cards I’m bringing to the National is this underrated Ken Griffey Jr insert! I graded this myself with Beckett and came up a .5 subgrade short of a 9.5! Great die cut design! A very affordable Griffey insert!
