a wee while ago, Matt from Cardboard Conundrum had a group break. Unlike a lot of the group breaks out there, he wasn't trying to make a profit. He just wanted to have some fun. He offered up 6 boxes of 2012 product. Topps Heritage, Topps Archives, Topps Jumbo Series 1, and Jumbo Series 2, as well as two boxes of Gypsy Queen. Your choice of teams for $20 shipped, later reduced to $15.
With me not busting any boxes of baseball anymore, the opportunity to pick up almost complete team sets of my Braves from all of the 2012 product in one scoop was too good to pass up.
Relax, I won't show you every card I received, but a few highlights. You know how I like pictures.
In the box of Heritage I also received
229 Brandon Beachy
238 Jose Constanza
308 Brian McCann
347 Chipper Jones (see? I don't show every Chipper card I get)
350 Tommy Hanson
394 Tim Hudson
409 Jair Jurrjens (what in the hell happened Jair???)
429 Jonny Venters
TN-AK Hank Aaron / Matt Kemp
Here I'll show every card I got since I hadn't seen Archives in person yet.... plus I didn't get that many.
Freddie on a really white card.... and his buddy Brandon. (oh Brandon, what could have been)
BMac and Huddy from the same photo shoot as the Heritage cards. Ahh... Atlanta at sunrise.
The past and the future. Chipper and Kimbrel.
here's my first 'hit'... a Jason Heyward gold foil parallel that my scanner doesn't like.
Speed and Power. Hopefully we see more of both... and soon.
Topps Jumbo Series 1 and 2
I got quite a stack of these cards. But I had to show off this one.
Look owl! Mini's!
ended up with three of them.
And now my second hit. A Randall Delgado autograph.
I also received 30 Braves base cards from both series, as well as 8 inserts. Not bad.
you knew Chipper was making an appearance along with his hunting buddy.
someone needs to remind Freddie to catch with his glove. That's what it's there for. I showed the big version of Tommy to illustrate the mini variant I got. At least I think it's a variant. Maybe.
First, a mini relic of Tim Hudson.
as well as 20 Braves base cards. No inserts. But I don't think they are in any of the insert sets. I think. Maybe. Hell I don't know.
If you are in need of any Braves base cards from this year, let me know, I may have dupes. Maybe we can swap for ones I need. IF I can figure out what I need.... that may take some doing.
I'll tell you what. Matt included a Golden Giveaway code card. (I'm assuming unused) The first person who offers up a card off of my wantlist gets the code. Any takers?
