It was a little crazy at the arpsmith household last night so I didn't get a chance to random the winner for last week's contest or put together a new contest post. Hopefully later today or early tomorrow on that but I did want to share the results of a group break I entered recently.
Spankee over at My Cardboard Mistress had a unique group break a few weeks back. As I recall, he had quite a few random packs, blasters and boxes, some of which had been opened and stashed and he decided to break them up by team and sell them off in a group break. At first I wasn't too interested, I already had quite a few of the Giants from the sets he was offering. Knowing that I am one of the few Giants fans in the blog world, he pestered me a little and I finally decided to jump in and participate.
I got a pretty large stack of dups as expected but did score some nice cards to add to the Giants collection. He also threw in a hit as the break didn't result in any Giants hits. I was very happy to pick up the cards I did and glad to have participated in the break.
Here is a random assortment of cards if I do say so. The Milner is a card I never would have known existed if it didn't pop up in this batch of cards. This card alone almost made the break worthwhile. I was also happy to score the Schmidt silver parallel - I have very few Giants parallels from this Fleer set. The Kevin Mitchell is an awesome numbered insert from a great sets - Upper Deck Classics. The three guys along the bottom were pretty new to me. Not big names but great additions to the Giants collection.
Thanks Spankee for talking me into the break, it was well worth it!
