Here are the results of another Trading Card Central group break that I participated in. We busted open 1 box of 2012 Topps Gypsy Queen, 1 box of 2011 Topps Chrome, 1 box of 1999 Bowman Chrome, and a few packs of 1978 Topps.
No Padres cards in the box of 1999 Bowman Chrome (boo!!). I also only received one Padre card from the packs of 1978 Topps. Not a Dave Winfield card , but I still like it. You gotta love 1970′s cards. The afro, the sideburns, the brown and gold uniform. It’s just an awesome card:
The 2012 Gypsy Queen yielded a Tony Gwynn SP and a Cameron Maybin card. I already had these from an earlier group break. But, I did get a couple of mini’s – Tony Gwynn’s regular mini and his SP mini. Now, I just need a Cory Luebke to finish off the set. See if you can spot the subtle difference between the regular card and the SP variation:
The box of 2011 Topps Chrome didn’t have any Padres refractors. I did get three base cards – Mat Latos, Heath Bell, and Cory Luebke. That leaves me 5 more base cards to complete this set.
