I haven't had the opportunity to participate in too many group breaks over the last few months, either I miss signing up for them or my LCS has too many of the cards from a new release set aside for me to have it make sense. With respect to Nachos Grande's 2015 Topps Archive break, it came down to funds. I had bought a couple vintage Giants and with JT Snow as the only Giant in the auto list I figured I would tackle the set on the secondary market.
Fortunately for me, Tom from Waiting 'til Next Year, picked up his beloved Cubs (and got a heck of a break with those Cubs - Congrats!) and got the Giants as his random team. Before even getting the cards from the break, he reached out to me and we decided to embark on another trade. I am super happy with how it turned out, check out all these Giants.
A pretty awesome score from a group break I didn't enter, huh?
Tom, thanks so much for getting the Giants and sending them my way, I really appreciate it! As I right this I just saw footage that Kris Bryant hit a walk off HR, that Archives auto you scored probably just jumped $10-20 in value.
