2013 Topps Archives Group Break: Box 2 - Packs 7 - 9

The group break is moving along nicely.  However, I think it will be tough to beat our first box - three autos plus a relic?  Yeah, that was more than solid.  As for box #2, we've barely dug into it...perhaps we'll find our first autograph in the box right now.

Box 2 - Pack 7:
Tim Lincecum - Giants
Stephen Strasburg - Nationals
Manny Machado - Orioles
Johan Santana - Mets
Adam Jones - Orioles
Jason Motte - Cardinals
83-CF.  All-Star:  Carlton Fisk - White Sox

12.  Gold parallel:  Jarrod Parker  - Athletics #106/199

That was a solid pack!  The Fisk is a nice insert and I happen to love the gold parallels a lot.  I really believe all of you who end up with one of them will be quite happy, they look great in person.

Box 2 - Pack 8:
Derek Holland - Rangers
Matt Moore - Rays
Pedro Alvarez - Pirates
Paul Konerko - White Sox
Eddie Murray - Orioles
Rod Carew - Angels
Mike Schmidt - Phillies
Redemption card

Each hobby box comes with one of these redemption cards - it will be randomized off at the end among all teams without a hit and/or a card seeded 1 per box or rarer.

Box 2 - Pack 9:
Dexter Fowler - Rockies
Will Middlebrooks - Red Sox
Ian Kinsler - Rangers
Yadier Molina - Cardinals
Adrian Beltre - Rangers
Robinson Cano - Yankees
David Price - Rays
238.  Frank White - Royals

The Frank White is a short print - so that's a nice little pickup for the Royals.  Personally, I plan on tracking down the entire set myself so if anyone doesn't want their duplicates (and/or short prints or inserts let me know).  Maybe we could work out some sort of swap.
