Here are the results of another group break I did over at MojoBreak.com. This was a 5 Box break that included the following cards:
- 2008 Razor Lettermen
- 2012 Topps Chrome
- 2008 Triple Threads
- 2011 Bowman Sterling
- 2012 Topps Tribute
As usual, I staked claim to all the Padres cards from this break. The two big ticket items were Topps Tribute and Triple Threads. Unfortunately, no Padres cards in either of those boxes.
I picked up a pair of base cards from the Topps Chrome box. Kyle Blanks and Yonder Alonso. The Yonder Alonso card will pair up nicely with my Black Refractor autograph. However, I did realize that Topps reused the photo for Mr. Alonso. It’s the same picture they used for his card in 2012 Bowman Platinum.
And is it just me or is the picture of Kyle Blanks a little prophetic. With his back to the camera, the hulking giant is slowly walking away. I’m not sure where he fits into the team’s 2013 plans.
One hit from the box of Bowman Sterling. A game used relic featuring Cory Luebke. Nice!! With the way, the team’s been playing recently, I wonder where we’d be if the pitching staff wasn’t decimated earlier this year.
Finally, the hit from 2008 Razor Lettermen. Hey Mets fans, take a good look. Because these are the types of “prospects” you can expect with Sandy Alderson at the helm. Best of luck.
