The collation for base cards was good. Completed 2 sets definitely. Might have a 3rd but I'm not checking. Those are the trade pile, so whoever needs base please contact me.
Received exactly 8 base refractors and 4 xfractors per box. Received exactly 24 1989 reprints (all different), 24 Diecuts (all different) and 12 Topps Shelf (also, all different). I can't be upset about not getting dupes in the insert portion.
Beat the odds but if I were to sell the contents of the case I'm sure I'd lose money. Good thing I'm not in this to make money or I'd be in trouble. Here's when the real fun begins.
I know a few of you commented on cards you were interested in or a particular team. I promised some of the Yankees to Lost Collector and a few pirates to Bob walk the plank and I believe some Mets to Home Run Apple (if hes interested?). Sorry if I missed anyone, this coming week is extremely busy for me, so please please email me at brauer144 at gmail dot com and I will get back to you in a day or two to work something out!
I will look at lists or blogs or whatever. I am interested in phillies (shocking I know) Frank Thomas or other trade bait. I've traded quite a few times over the past couple years so many people can vouch for me if necessary. I feel like I am rambling.
Hope everyone enjoyed watching the break on the blog! I posted as I opened so sometimes I struggled with new adjectives (I do not write for a living)
Thanks for reading, looking forward to the trading portion of this endeavor!
