The 2013 Topps Archives Group Break Begins!

Yesterday, I posted the team randomization results.  Today, we begin the group break.  As a reminder, the break consists of three boxes of Archives - here's packs #1 and #2 from the first box to whet your appetites for more!

Box 1 - Pack 1:
11.  Joe Nathan - Rangers
37.  Elvis Andrus - Rangers
70.  Ozzie Smith - Cardinals

95.  Reggie Jackson - Angels
124.  George Brett - Royals
152.  Craig Kimbrel - Braves
189.  Homer Bailey - Reds
83-DJ:  All-Stars:  Derek Jeter - Yankees

The pack began with a pair of Rangers and ended with a Red and a Jeter insert.  Not a bad start.  At this point, I should mention that there was a box topper in the box as well but I haven't opened that up yet.  I will do so at some point in the future in an effort to keep things "mixed up" a bit.

Box 1 - Pack 2:
3.  Carlos Beltran - Cardinals
30.  Yu Darvish - Rangers

51.  Carlos Gonzalez - Rockies
97.  David Wright - Mets
147.  Hiroki Kuroda - Yankees
155.  Wilin Rosario - Rockies
193  Jim Palmer - Orioles
Topps Archives Redemption

The redemption card was a surprise since I didn't know Topps was doing that.  The card is good for a foil-wrapped vintage card from the 50s, 60s, 70s, or 80s.  The only catch is you have to bring it to your local (participating) hobby shop in order to redeem the card.  For the group break purposes, I'll be randomizing this card among all teams without a hit (or other "rare" card).

Two packs down - still a ton to go so don't worry if the first two weren't overly good to you!

I forgot that you like to split up your breaks among many posts. This is totally the best way to go. Your ripping/posting of packs over the course of a week helps me to stay under budget! Gives me something to look forward to without spending more dough on cards! Keep 'em coming'!
