I pre-ordered a case of 2012 Five Star Baseball a couple months ago, and I finally got my case tonight and cracked it open. As the description of this break says, all I can say is "WOW!!!".

I've seen a bunch of this opened already online, and I will say, I was VERY pleased with my case, and I thought I would share with my fellow TCC'ers.

I will go over each box, though I will do the boxes in order of preference (saving best box for last), and I will do the cards from each box in my order of preference, as opposed to the order I may have pulled the cards, once again, saving the best for last.

Most, if not all cards will be going to my PC, but a couple may be available for trade and/or for sale if the offer is right. It never hurts to ask if you are interested.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy, as I share the results my break of a 3-box case of 2012 Five Star Baseball with all of you.

-Joe

Here is box #1. This actually was the first box I opened.


Base Card - JIM PALMER 48/80

DAVID WRIGHT Jumbo Jersey - 42/92

STARLIN CASTRO Silver Ink Auto 3/99

Here comes the first change up in the order. Remember, I am presenting in my order of preference, not in order of cards pulled.




ERIC HOSMER Auto 78/150

user posted image





Time for the first Hall of Famer auto of the case....but it won't be the last. cool.gif





FERGIE JENKINS Auto 17/208

user posted image



And finally, last card of Box 1. I have to rank it my favorite, because as many of you know, this is from my #1 team.




CLAYTON KERSHAW Jersey Auto 80/97

user posted image





A very nice box, but as I've said, I think this was the least impressive of the 3. Box 2 results coming up shortly.....

Time for Box #2. This was actually the third box I opened, and many of you are going to be amazed that this isn't ranked as the #1 box (some may even disagree). However, I think my selected order will become obvious. Needless to say, this was one heck of a nice box.

Without further adieu.....


Base Card: CLIFF LEE 11/80

JACOBY ELLSBURY Jumber Jersey 62/92

user posted image





Now for (arguably) the worst auto of the box...and its a Hall of Famer (say Whaaaat?!?!?!)




ANDRE DAWSON Auto 89/106

What a beautiful signature Andre has.....well done.

user posted image





That must have been a typo. How can Dawson be the least ranked auto? Well, you got to remember.....I'm a Dodgers fanatic. Which brings us to the next auto.....

Okay, I must warn you.....I am about to present auto 3 of 4 in the box.

And some of you are going to think I've lost my mind. Maybe I've have. But I have to put this one as second best....I have to.

Well, that is going to be one tough box to beat. But I think I may have done it. Some will disagree, but all will understand why I put this #1.

Here we go.....final box of the case (and actually the 2nd box I opened).


Base Card: ROBINSON CANO Rainbow Parallel 8/10

TROY TULOWITZKI Jumbo Jersey 24/25

user posted image




I better have some nice autos in here, or I am going to look like a fool.



Better get off to a strong start.



RYAN BRAUN Auto 41/150

user posted image






The next auto is a player who doesn't get enough respect. 7-time All-Star, 5-time Gold Glove, 4-time Silver Slugger, 2-time NL MVP, 398 HRs, and he did it before the steroids era, yet he gets no HOF love.



DALE MURPHY Auto 135/208

user posted image





Auto 3 is another solid one....




JOSH HAMILTON Jersey Auto 46/55

user posted image




By now, everyone thinks I am insane. No way is this the best box of the 3. Its been good and solid, but not overly impressive.


I'm not going to lie.....I probably agree with you up to this point.


However, lets see if I can finish big.

Some of you may disagree, but remember, I am NOT an impartial jury. This was what I wanted when I bought the case.

We've had Maury, Clayton, Fergie, Bryce, and Hammerin Hank, to name just a few...

Final hit of the case....

SANDY KOUFAX GOLD INK AUTO 3/5!!!!!!!!!!!

And that's it!!! I know some would take box #2 over #3, but Koufax is my Meca....it doesn't get any better.

Thanks for checking out my break....I hope you enjoyed. I sure did!!!! biggrin.gif
