Tier 1 (not actually a box break - yankees_pride - 11-17-2011 09:36 AM
Ok so I am not one who likes to spend 75-100 on a box of 6-8 cards, not packs, cards!!! So I usually wait and see what the breaks look like and decide which avenue I want to take. I pc a few people and the odds of hitting those people when busting a small pack/box are so minimal that I just ebay buy or trade. This product had all 3 of my main guys and a few prospects I like. So I went the route of trading and buying. My first trade was with hamiltonfan where I aquired the Nunez, Craig, and Jeter. Then I went to the bay because usually when these boxes hit people flood the bay and usually you can get some pretty nice scores. I found a guy that was selling at .99 and 2.50 shipping, so I asked if he combined shipping and he did so I went after a few of his on the rise autos. For 8.54 I bagged the Ogando, Hand, and Forsythe, pretty good for 3 prospect autos. I bought the Santana for 10 from a guy on another site Then the big score IMO was my Heyward Auto Gold #2/25 I traded a 1983 Gwyn rc and $14 for him. Pretty stoked over all. I need a few more base cards and would like to grab a Noesi auto but I'll get there. Thanks for reading!!!

who are you looking for in base?
I've bought a few lots of base cards off the bay recently while trying to piece together the base set and I have a few dupes (as soon as they all arive).

the Brad Hand is pretty sweet ..and that Heyward looks cool with the throwback uni.

I really like that Craig... Very nice bunch of cards overall, and awesome buys.
