The end of the first box of the group break is finally here! That's right, we've made it through 22 of the 24 packs...and in the final two packs we will find our final (bonus!) hit of the box. I'll waste no more time, let's get rippin'!
98. Colby Lewis - Rangers
95. Madison Bumgarner - Giants
55. Jose Bautista - Blue Jays
145. Matt Duffy - Giants
163. Carlos Rodon - White Sox
158. Addison Russell - Cubs
USA Baseball: 6. Stephen Nogosek
1982 Base: 15. Kris Bryant - Cubs
As usual, I like the 1982 base card quite a bit. Here comes the final pack!
191. Omar Vizquel - Indians
149. Ichiro - Marlins
107. Francisco Lindor - Indians
112. Jason Heyward - Cardinals
96. Gerrit Cole - Pirates
99. Jacob DeGrom - Mets
1982 Base: 11. Paul Goldschmidt - Diamondbacks
Promising Pros: PPMS-AN. Aaron Nola - Phillies (#182/199)
Woah! An auto/giant relic card of Aaron Nola for the Phillies (Doc ended up with the Phillies) numbered out of only 199. That's an awesome way to end the box!
And with that, box #1 is in the books! I'll get the video of my entire box rip posted tomorrow morning (hopefully, assuming Blogspot's scheduler works). What do you think of the box now that we've seen all the contents? From a group break host perspective, it was pretty darn good - lots of cool stuff and much of it spread across different teams. I can only hope that the remaining boxes can live up to this one!
Life is like a box of chocolates
