JABO Break Results

If it seems like my only card purchases lately are through group breaks, well... then... you've probably noticed that it's the truth. I am certain that I'll get back in the swing of things with new 2012 stuff on the horizon, but I'm definitely in a serious collecting rut at the moment. Fortunately, there have been a few of these group break type of things to keep the embers going. JABO has had a number of such events already in its relatively short time of existence. If you get an opportunity, you should consider participating.

I got three teams in the break, plus some extras. Of course, the Cardinals were represented and included players I'd never heard of! Awesome! I think? Kenneth Peoples-Walls was apparently a 4th round pick in the most recent draft. Let's hope that I get to hear announcers say his name at some point down the road.

There were also some kids in the package. When I say "kids", I actually mean people that were born in 1995. 1995! That's crazy. People shouldn't be allowed to own these. They may as well make Little League World Series cards. (They probably do, sadly.) I am guessing that the cards for players who were not affiliated yet with a major league team ended up getting randomly distributed among the participants. I will hang on to these in hopes that they all become supermegastars someday.

White Sox! This was a team that was randomly assigned and one that I do not often find trading partners for, so of course most of the "hits" in the package were White Sox cards. This here is one of those refractor type thingies.

Dodgers! I selected this team purposefully after taking the Cardinals, because I never have a problem getting rid of Dodgers cards. In fact, I am so going to get rid of some Dodgers cards tomorrow... provided that the Postal Service still exists by then.


  1. I'm looking forward to his 2012 Topps break.

  2. I've had success trading with a couple White Sox guys. Let me know if you want to know who they are.
