So I bought in to BA Benny ridiculously huge group break (my first group break), because it just looked like fun. I chose the Nats/Expos since there weren't many teams left and I figured at worst I'd snag a couple Zimmermans I didn't have, and at best I might land the Strasburg auto that would pay off my house. Anyway, I got a fairly large stack of Nats and a decent stack of Expos. Speaking of Expos, the highlights of those were Vladimir Guerrero:
I especially like the T-96 Old Judge card. Gotta love a mini-ish card from the '90s of a guy who actually made it. I didn't land any massive Strasburgs, but did pick up these:
I did pick up quite a few Zims for the PC:
I especially like the Expos one. Did I mention I also had the Eagles. What's that? You say there are no Eagles in the MLB? I agree, but this group break was massive, so naturally it had football as well. I didn't get any dogfighters, but I did get a couple other nice Eagles QB cards:
BA Benny also randomed off the USA, non-sport, and multi-team cards, of which I scored the only hit I got:
Trevor Bauer currently plays at UCLA (did you know that Plaschke?). How awesome would this card be if he ended up on the Rays. I mean...Trevor Bauer...TB...Tampa Bay...get it? BA Benny also sent along the trappings from our most recent trade, but I'll save that for another post.
In summary, I ended up with around 150 cards of Nats, Expos, and Eagles, winding down to a grand total of 8 keepers (the Zimmermans).
8 keepers, 2 broken pitchers, and 1 decent trade bait card: $25
Total value of the those cards: $7
Watching several hours of videos of BA Benny opening 4 boxes, 6 blasters, and 298 loose packs, all while narrating with a thick New York accent and butchering names: PRICELESS!
Thanks again BA Benny, I thoroughly enjoyed the group break. Should you ever attempt something so incredible again, count me in (though maybe for a different team...).
