2013 Topps Archives Group Break: The End is Nigh (Packs 11 - 13)

Today seems like a good day to open a quarter of the packs in the final box.  I already opened three this morning, now let's do the next batch of three.

Box 3 - Pack 11:
George Brett - Royals
Jim Palmer - Orioles
Carlos Beltran - Cardinals
David Wright - Mets
Yu Darvish - Rangers
Carlos Gonzalez - Rockies
Dustin Pedroia - Red Sox
83-RC.  All-Star:  Robinson Cano - Yankees

I can't be positive without actually going back and physically counting the cards but I believe that is the Yankees 11th insert/short print of the break.  That's more inserts than some teams have in total base cards!  Whoever said Topps doesn't love the Yankees is lying!

Pack 12:
Clayton Kershaw - Dodgers
Joe Mauer - Twins
Jordan Zimmerman - Nationals
Giancarlo Stanton - Marlins
Babe Ruth - Yankees
Eddie Mathews - Braves
Madison Bumgarner - Giants
69S-THBK.  Stickers:  Trout (Angels), Harper (Nationals), Braun (Brewers), Kemp (Dodgers)

Another multi-team sticker card to be randomized at the end of the break!  We ended up pulling the same card in a previous box too so two people will end up with this quartet of young stars.

Pack 13:
Mike Morse - Mariners
Cole Hamels - Phillies
Kendrys Morales - Mariners
Buster Posey - Giants
Jackie Robinson - Dodgers
Willie Stargell - Pirates
Yogi Berra - Yankees
241.  Fred Lynn - Red Sox

That's the fifth insert/short print for the Red Sox by my count...a good total but it pales in comparison to the Yankees (story of Boston's life eh?).
