how's your weekend going? what a great sunday afternoon here. I smell a neighbor's BBQ coming through the wind and occasionally i hear tiny yelps from our newborn puppies out in the back yard.
this and my next couple of posts will be catch-ups from trades and breaks i was involved in from a ways back. today i'm covering the last break i was in, and because of new financial changes around here, maybe the last break i'll be in for a while. i'm going to be scaling back on how many breaks i join. maybe that's lucky for you other Dodger collectors, as I'll only be jumping in if the products are something i just can't resist.
speaking of lucky - i caught some major, major break mojo on this group break from Community Gum and i hauled in my biggest catch yet of all the breaks i've participated in. Andy and Jon gave us a shot at a case break of 2012 topps archives. of course, my team was the dodgers, and i picked up some cool cards of a few guys from other teams as well. here's the highlights -
|of course it's a highlight when i get a jackie hit. love this card's great design. aint all that blue purty?|
|nice new cards from (last year's) stars|
|never been much a snider collector, but i like this one.|
|i know some of you out there dig these stickers. bleh...|
|i always love to get a new mike schmidt card. the straw looks great in this card.|
|clemente ALWAYS a good addition. sometimes i feel this dude walked the field with an aura you could see.|
|andy and jon included this note that gave me a good chuckle when i saw it. 'couldn't pull anything good for me?' HA ! they only pulled my greatest hit of all ! check it out below ....|
|see that? a Fan Favorites Sandy Koufax AUTOGRAPH !!! that auto was the entire reason i joined this break. i was hoping to catch lightning and the boys at Community Gum helped me catch it this time !!|
I went to the topps redeemtion site and the only drag is i have to wait until september for delivery. SEPTEMBER ???!!!???!! ARRRGHHHH !!!! this might be the first time i ever wish for summer to pass quickly. THANKS for the great break, Jon and Andy!
