I participated in Nachos Grande's most recent group break. I believe there were eight different boxes from the last twenty years or so, with a majority of those boxes spanning the years I was out of the hobby.
Show-and-tell time! Let's start off with the super big Cubs mojo first!
The above card is from 1998 Fleer Tradition and the below cards are from 1998 Pacific Paramount.
Here's a couple more cards from the '98 Fleer Tradition box.
Kerry Wood binder!
I thought I might hit on a few more Mark Grace cards than I did, but this was the sole Grace in the break.
Hey, a Schwarber rookie! Nice hit!
Pat Mahomes, the elder!
Here's a couple more that will settle into a binder:
Play at the plate!
Ricky Gutierrez cameo? I think the name is too short on the back of the jersey... probably Chris Gomez. Funny how I can't remember my best friends' birthdays, but I can put a name to a 20+ year old picture when only the color scheme and two partial letters are given.
Sluggin' Sammy Sosa was the name that was included the most coming in a five cards. Sorry, only four are pictured!
Here's a set I somehow missed my first trip through the hobby: 1953 Topps Archives, released in 1991.
The last set in the break was 1997 Donruss Limited. The front side of each card is done up in chrome and the backside features another player who has loose connections to the player on the front.
Kieschnick card for my player collection. The only connection between Brooks and Marty Cordova is they are both left fielders.
I also hit a Sandberg! 903 different ones in the collection now!
That's the end of the highlights for my chosen team. The Nachos Grande randomizer gifted me the Royals.
Here's another one of those 1997 Donruss Limited cards.
The other side?
Thanks for the great group break, Chris. It's always fun to take a stroll down memory lane and gain some news cards at the same time.
