Was really not expecting much, after watching some breaks of this stuff on Youtube, but I was happily surprised.

If you like any cards below, send me a PM with an offer. I am probably going to put the minis into the PC. For others, mainly looking to sell.

Started off with two hits early in my first box...I was not impressed to say the least.

Yes, the Kevin Smith was pretty cool, but I wasn't feeling great.

Next pack yielded this:

Travis D'Arnaud Rip Card /50:

So I got a case hit. I was happy.

The next box gave me my 3 hits very quickly, with nothing great to speak of. I was getting depressed. Then, this came out!

Masahiro Tanaka Mini RC NNO /50:

AND more mini goodness:

Nolan Ryan red back hand #ed 01/25:

Throw in a couple Tanaka base RCs and Abreu RCs and this turned out to be a pretty mean break.

My plan was to spread out my hobby box purchases across 3 suppliers to give me a chance at hitting multiple case hits/rips/booklets. Part 1 of the plan has succeeded.

Keeping my language within the rules, I did gosh darn, flipping great for two boxes.

Thanks for looking!

Yeah, exactly why I am NOT going to be ripping this rip card...although the extended minis do seem to be selling very well....

PM will be sent about the minis once I have a final count...

Not a bad idea actually...if I can get my hands on a magnet I will give it a shot. Meanwhile, taking offers on it currently...

I just have to say, this Pedro made my day. Spending a large part of my life living in Boston during the days of Pedro and the 90's Sox, this one really brought back the memories. Ignoring the Mets uniform of course.

Last time I opened Ginter I pulled a bigfoot box topper ink card. Always seem to get lucky with these!
