I signed up for Nacho Grande's most recent group break and small flat rate USPS box was a delivered earlier in the week. I haven't been purchasing much current product the past two years so I figured this was a good way to get my Cubs fix. Plus, who knows when I nice Cubs hit will fall into my lap from one of the boxes.
|The new cat trap is working.|
Let's pull ourselves away from all of the cuteness and take a look at my favorite cards from each of the boxes.
Fist up we have Greg Maddux from Topps Museum.
I have a nice little run of Opening Day sets and I've always liked the Superstar Celebrations insert series.
If I had the cash I would purchase a box of Diamond Kings. I didn't watch all of the videos Chris filmed, but I made sure to watch the live feed of this box.
Gypsy Queen? Sure, why not. I still don't know why Topps has Gypsy Queen when Allen & Ginter's is pretty much the same thing. But, whatever.
collection. Hey, I'm up to 765!
Bowman, Series 1, was also included in the break. Kyle Schwarber gets the nod here, because I just don't have many cards of his yet. All in due time I suppose.
Hey, freebies! I didn't score a big hit, but Chris threw in some random Cubs goodness for me. What a generous soul!
Billy Williams from Panini Cooperstown:
A new Kerry Wood card, which raises the count to 393:
Oh, and another new Rynse Sandberg card. Score! Up the tally to 766!
Hey, I guess I did get a couple of hits and both were minis:
And now, a time for a plug:
Nachos Grande is busting a case of Topps Archives and there are still some slots left for his next group break. I think we're guaranteed 20 autos from the case, plus a chance at a Will Ferrell auto, which I'm personally pretty jazzed about. I really like the way Chris' does his breaks and would highly recommend them. I've been scammed a couple of times through eBay group breaks, and I don't know if I'll go back, but there are no worries with Nachos Grande. He does a nice job in the videos, he posts summaries afterwards, he usually gives away free cards, he ships promptly, and he's a trustworthy member of our blogosphere. The only thing he doesn't provide in his breaks are actual nachos. But I suppose I can let that one slide. :)
Chris, thanks for hosting another great break. I can't wait for the Archives case in June!
