Group Break: 2017 Topps Archives - Box #1: Packs 16 - 18 (a 1:3,315 packs card shows up!!)

We are nearing the end of the first box of our group break - I hope everyone is having fun so far!  I have to admit, I've been impressed with our box up until now, let's see if that continues as finish off the final few packs in the next day or so.

Pack 16:
41.  Justin Bour - Marlins

45.  Javier Baez - Cubs
98.  Jake Lamb - Diamondbacks
104.  Bert Blyleven - Indians
175.  Sandy Koufax - Dodgers
179.  Early Wynn - Indians
212.  Jacob DeGrom - Mets
296.  Carlos Carrasco - Indians

Pack 17:
91.  Adam Jones - Orioles
94.  Manny Margot - Padres
125.  Jackie Robinson - Dodgers
167.  Dennis Eckersley - Athletics
240.  Rick Porcello - Red Sox
282.  David Robertson - White Sox
289.  Aroldis Chapman - Yankees
Jeter Retrospective:  DJ-13.  Derek Jeter - Yankees

This is the second Jeter Retrospectives card from the box (which is exactly what we should get given that they are seeded 1:12 packs).  This card is a reprint of the 2005 Jeter base card.

Pack 18:
7.  Billy Hamilton - Reds
44.  Julio Teheran - Braves
105.  Jake Ordorizzi - Rays
107.  Carlos Gonzalez - Rockies
131.  Jackie Bradley Jr. - Red Sox
258.  Dustin Pedroia - Red Sox
278.  Tom Seaver - Reds

Rookie Stars:  Soft Red Parallel:  RS-6.  Alex Reyes - Cardinals (#06/25)

Ok, while that Reyes card may not appear to be overly special, it's actually a nearly impossible pull (the soft red parallels are seeded a whopping 1:3,315 packs)!!!!  You can only imagine my surprise when I realized just how rare that card actually is (I had no idea of the rarity of the card when I pulled it from the pack on video, as you'll see when I post the video)!
