Ok, so I didn't kill it like I did last time, but I did pretty well.
I bought the Reds and Rays, and was assigned the Nationals (woohoo) and Marlins. I was really happy to pick up the Nats since I considered buying them. I ended up with four cards for my player collections:
As for randomed cards, I was granted this Goudey Sport Royalty Guy LaFleur:
I'm not a hockey guy, so it's available for trade. The main reason I picked the Reds was to land some Griffeys, since 2008 SPx is a Griffey-loaded product. JABO already had the Mariners for the same reason. I got two of the American Hero inserts as a result:
Both are serial numbered and the one on the right commemorates his 500th-career homer.
I ended doing really well with the SPx box as far as hits. 3 of the 10 hits came my way:
Not real exciting, but an auto nonetheless.
Now this is a pretty cool card. Luis was a solid player, and you don't see a ton of Luis Gonzalez relics flying around.
The best hit, though, was proof that I made a good decision with the Reds:
A pinstriped Kid #/99. Pretty darn sweet. This break was definitely worth it. Everything is for trade other than the Uptons and Zims at the top (not that you wanted those anyway). I also have some base/parallels from the Goudey and Unique boxes for the Rays, Nats, Marlins, and Reds.
Sam and I also recently worked out a trade. He sent me some sweet GQ minis:
To keep the Reynolds train going, he also sent an A&G relic:
Thanks, again, Sam, for the group break and trade.
