Well, that wraps up the recap.

Final Thoughts

We didn't hit anything major, but I thought it was a success overall.

I was very impressed with Gypsy Queen. I thought we got a lot of nice stuff out of the box, I liked the look of the cards. The Autos are both on-card (definite plus). The relics look good especially the framed mini. The checklist for the product is great! The SP variations add a nice twist to an already great checklist. I think it was the best value in the break.

I also thought 2011 Topps Chrome was a pretty good value. We got a few nice refractors of well known players. The Autos are of up and comers so we'll have to wait a while to see if they pan out. Downside- sticker autos mad.gif Still not bad.

1978 Topps- Nothing big, but you just can't go wrong with pack fresh vintage. biggrin.gif

2010 UD Retail- I was pleasantly surprised. Nothing major, but we landed a Buster Posey RC and that Adrian Gonzalez Die-Cut is a beauty. It was free and provided some value. That's a combo I like!

1999 Bowman Chrome Series 1- Ugh. There's a reason it's still on the shelf..... that's where it belongs. The collation was horrible and that's my biggest complaint. I could understand if it was an 89 release....but by 99 Topps should have had it figured out. I knew there wasn't much in the way of big name RCs, but I was extremely disappointed by how few refractors and inserts we received.

Bowman aside, I thought we did good. Thank you all again for participating. I'll get to packing these up. I hope you had fun and we'll see you next month.

Next month, I would like to seen another box of Gypsy Queen.....I have busted a ton of blasters of this stuff and there's still some key cards I'm looking for out of that set. Other than another box of Gypsy Queen, I have no preferences on product.

Overall, it wasn't bad. I did like the 2011 Topps Chrome box. I've opened quite a bit of this stuff and it is good value with the color that you get. We didn't hit anything big, but 2011 Chrome is definitely a good box for budget busters.

The Gypsy Queen also was another solid box and for what you get, price point is good.

The 78 Topps was surprised we didn't see any star's base cards. The Ryan, Brock & Jackson RB's were nice, but would have been nice to hit a star's base card out of 5 packs.

I'll definitely be here for next month. Thanks for doing the break!

Glad to see the breakdown results. I missed the break. I was all ready for it about 15 minutes before the first scheduled time (at 9), then I did my "middle-aged-man" evening nap thing. tongue.gif

Well, after 2 trips across the country, the final package has landed. Thank you again to everyone who participated this month. The July Break has been submitted and is awaiting approval. Everyone has ownership of the chosen teams from last month. The drafted teams will go into the pool and a new draft order will be posted. I hope to see you all there.
