2011 Topps Update packs and Group Break Bidding Ends tonight!

Check out the group break details here and see the current bidding here.

How crazy am I? So crazy that I am showing group break cards before it's even locked.  I picked up two rack packs and three loose retail packs of 2011 Update, and they will kick off the break. 

Let me start by saying this is my favorite Update card so far.  Good timing on the photo and the placement of a gigantic beer ad is awesome, even if Budweiser sucks.  Just think if this was a '70s RC of a good player.  How awesome would that be.  Anyway, on to the good stuff:

Well, looky there.  A few nice cards of Red Sox and Giants, which haven't been bid on yet. 

Sparkly unclaimed Brewers, Angels, and Yankees galore! And I realize the Red Sox may be one of the more expensive teams, but you would at least walk away with the best card of these update packs:

A Cognac sparkly of the Babe! These should be called liquorfractors.  Geez, do you really need any more reason to bid on the Red Sox than a blue parallel and a Cognac Sparkly Legend. I recommend the Yankees as well.  Really, you can't lose on any of the teams that haven't been bid on.  There are a ton of great teams in there, and I will do my best to make sure you get your money's worth.  I will be adding packs as we go, in addition to the massive pile I've shown a few times lately.  I'll even add a sweet bonus for last minute bidding tonight. If I get bids on both the Yankees AND the Red Sox, plus any one of these teams:

Los Angeles Angels,
New York Mets,
San Francisco Giants,
Minnesota Twins,
Detroit Tigers,
Los Angeles Dodgers,

I'll add this to the break:

I might bid on the Giants but not for that gold. Please don't call any card of Orlando Cabrera on the Giants a nice card.


He is absolutely terrible.

The Campana card is nice looking. But check this to see where Topps got the picture from.

Ok, I'm officially adopting Liquorfractors into my vernacular.
