Group Break: Topps Finest Didn't Suck This Time

Blah, blah, blah, show the cards, blah, blah, blah.

2000 Topps Finest:
Pack 17:
148.  Kerry Wood - Cubs
153.  Ryan Klesko - Padres
196.  Hideki Irabu - Expos
200.  Sammy Sosa - Cubs
220.  Carl Everett - Red Sox
259.  Rookies:  Javier Colina - Rockies #2755/3000

As a group break host, I always like when the "good stuff" gets spread around a bunch of different teams.  With the serially numbered rookie card in the Rockies pile (and the corresponding pack win), we have now had every team win at least one pack in the group break except for the White Sox, Marlins, Royals, Angels, and Brewers.  Even better, every team has at least five cards to its name (except for the Diamondbacks and Brewers who each have only three cards thus far).  

Pack 18:
169.  Jose Lima - Astros
195.  Shawn Green - Dodgers
218.  Roger Clemens - Yankees
229.  Adam Everett - Astros
244.  Jason Dellaero - White Sox
269.  Counterparts:  A.J. Burnett (Marlins) & Mark Mulder (Athletics)

Since neither the Marlins nor Athletics were chosen as a "primary" team in the break, this card will also be randomed off at the end of the break.  I'm giving the pack win to the Marlins though since Burnett holds the front side of the card.  I should also note that this card is NOT a refractor which means that the previous Counterparts card that we pulled is an even better pull than I thought at the time!
