Topps Archives Group Break: Box 1 - Packs 13 & 14

If you missed the post this morning, you really owe it to yourself to check it out!

Now that you are back, let's crack open another pair of packs from the first box.

Box 1 - Pack 13:
13.  Ryan Zimmerman - Nationals
87.  A.J. Burnett - Pirates
94.  Curtis Granderson - Yankees
108.  Austin Jackson - Tigers
145.  Alfonso Soriano - Cubs
158.  Mike Olt - Rangers

174.  Ike Davis - Mets
69S-RGBJ.  Stickers:  Ruth, Gehrig, Berra, Jackson (Yankees)

At least I don't have to go through the hassle of randomizing the sticker card since all four players are Yankees.  Other than that, this was a solid but unspectacular pack.  We are still looking for our first Houston Astros card - the poor 'Stros are the only team without a card at this point in the break.

Box 1 - Pack 14:
9.  Ryan Braun - Brewers
73.  Aroldis Chapman - Reds

85.  Tony Perez - Reds
114.  Robin Yount - Brewers
139.  Matt Holliday - Cardinals
156.  Goose Gossage - Yankees
196.  Johnny Cueto - Reds
83-RC.  All-Star:  Robinson Cano - Yankees

Whaddya know, a pack with three Reds in it!  That's certainly something that makes me happy!  With the Cano insert, the Yankees now lead in that category with a total of three short prints/inserts in the break.

The group break is moving along nicely, we are now past the halfway mark of the first box.  This box should still have one more Fan Favorite autograph in it - which is amazing since we've already found two autos and a relic...what a way to start the break!
