2013 Topps Archives Group Break: Box 2 - Packs 13 - 15

We are now into the second half of the second box (and with it, the second half of the group break).  Let's see what goodies await us in the next trio of packs.

Box 2 - Pack 13:
Hyun-Jin Ryu - Dodgers
Mike Morse - Mariners
Cole Hamels - Phillies
Jason Heyward - Braves
Ryne Sandberg - Cubs
Jackie Robinson - Dodgers
MT-RC.  Tall Boys:  Robinson Cano - Yankees

83-MT.  All-Star:  Mike Trout - Angels

Box 2 - Pack 14:
Derek Jeter - Yankees
Cliff Lee - Phillies
Salvador Perez - Royals
Freddie Freeman - Braves
Jon Jay - Cardinals
CC Sabathia - Yankees
Hisashi Iwakuma - Mariners
210.  Bob Tewksbury - Cardinals

The Tewksbury card is one of the short prints in the set.  I happen to like that the short prints got "original feeling" backs rather than the typical shiny (and thin) card stock of the base set.

Box 2 - Pack 15:
Wade Miley - Diamondbacks
Fernando Rodney - Rays
Billy Butler - Royals
Brett Lawrie - Blue Jays
Adrian Gonzalez - Dodgers
David Freese - Cardinals
Wei-Yin Chen - Orioles
FFA-DB.  Fan Favorite Autograph:  Don Baylor - Angels

What a gorgeous looking autograph!  For all the complaints that Topps receives for its various sets and designs, the Fan Favorite Autographs are just about perfect.

Overall, this was a good trio of packs for the Angels between the Baylor autograph and the Mike Trout insert card.
