2013 Topps Archives Group Break: The Conclusion of Box #1!

It's time to finish off the first of the three group break boxes!  I must say, no matter what the final pair of packs hold this first box was a rousing success.  We already landed the two promised autos plus the box topper auto (which was really rare).  Add in the relic plus some of the rarer inserts and we have a spectacular box.  Let's see if there's any other goodies remaining still...

Box 1 - Pack 23:
17.  Hanley Ramirez - Dodgers
56.  Josh Reddick - Athletics
84.  Coco Crisp - Athletics
121.  Ian Kennedy - Diamondbacks
137.  Brian McCann - Braves
162.  Carlos Ruiz - Phillies
211.  Tom Brunansky - Twins

189.  Gold parallel:  Homer Bailey - Reds  #089/199

Alright!  Another gold parallel, but this one goes to me which makes me happy.  The foil on the 1990 Topps design is AWESOME looking - the scan doesn't do the card justice at all.  Love it.

Box 1 - Pack 24:
19.  Tyler Skaggs - Diamondbacks
42.  Mariano Rivera - Yankees
53.  Brandon Phillips - Reds
93.  Ian Desmond - Nationals
122.  R.A. Dickey - Blue Jays
132.  Bronson Arroyo - Reds
161.  Anthony Rizzo - Cubs
MT-DBU.  Tall Boys:  Dylan Bundy - Orioles

Topps gave Bundy quite a bit of love in this set - shades of Bryce Haper and Strasburgmania I guess.

And with that, the first box is finished!  I hope everyone is happy so far...two more boxes remain!

I am fairly certain that we will end up with a bunch of duplicate base cards - so if anyone doesn't want their extra base cards, please let me know.
