Hey all. Today I have a post for an entry into a contest over at Arbitrary Crap. Martyn asks "Have you joined a Box break & What's the
best card you've got?"
Well I have joined many a group break out in Blogoland and have even hosted one plus I have done some break slot auctions on E-Bay. It really is a great way to get cards of your favorite teams without the clutter of other cards you don't really want and it can save you a bunch of money, especially with higher end products. For this post I will go with a group break I jumped in a while back that Joe was hosting over at The Sandlot. He was busting 2 boxes of 2009 Topps Unique. I picked the Yankees since Joe had the Mets and in this case I am sure glad it worked out that way. Long story short, these were the highlights of my haul.
|2009 Topps Unique Unparalleled Performances Alex Rodriguez |
Gold Parallel sn'd 23/25
Now the feature card that answers Martyn's question.
|2009 Topps Unique Triple Threat Auto sn'd 3/10|
Sweet!!! The picture doesn't do the job when showing off this card. It looks great! A triple auto from the Yankees. While Damon is cool to get, add A-Rod and Robbie Cano and its a bonanza. Sn'd to just 10 makes it too cool!
