2013 Topps Archives Group Break: Box 3 - Packs 3 - 5

The final box of the break has already gifted us with a 1 of 1 printing plate and a Babe Ruth serially numbered card...and that was all within the first two packs.  Here are the next three, can they possibly live up to the first two?

Box 3 - Pack 3:
Jim Johnson - Orioles
Jean Segura - Brewers
Mike Trout - Angels
Gary Carter - Expos
Lance Lynn - Cardinals
Jesus Montero - Mariners
Jake Peavy - White Sox
222.  Howard Johnson - Mets

The Ho-Jo is a short print - and a nice catch for the Mets.  I'm a big fan of the '89 Topps design so I like this card quite a bit!

Pack 4:
Tony Cingrani - Reds
Paul Molitor - Brewers
Kyle Seager - Mariners
Troy Tulowitzki - Rockies
Albert Pujols - Angels
Tom Seaver - Mets
Jose Bautista - Blue Jays
72B-WM.  Topps BK:  Willie Mays - Giants

The Topps BK cards are seeded 1 per box (though our first box didn't hold one).  I'm not much of a fan of the design but you can't fault the player selection - a great card for the Giants!

Pack 5:
Doug Fister - Tigers
Todd Frazier - Reds
Mike Moustakas - Royals
David Ortiz - Red Sox
Mat Latos - Reds
Yoenis Cespedes - Athletics
Tim Hudson - Braves
83-JV.  All-Star:  Justin Verlander - Tigers

Although the three packs didn't provide us with anything truly jaw dropping, we did land a 1:24 pack card so no complaints so far!  19 packs remain in the break - stay tuned for more of them soon!
