Still sucks that Tyler Austin wasn't able to be put into any of the Future Games insert sets due to him getting hit in the head in his first game in TAMPA just after his call up. I believe it was his first or second at bat and BOOM concussion.

Case #5, Box #12

Justin Jackson Blue /500
Clayton Henning Blue /500
David Cruz Orange /250
Jesus Montero Rooke Refractor /300
Mitch Haniger Auto

Grade: D
Comments: Halfway through the break. I’ll start breaking Case #6 sometime Tuesday night, so get those entries in!

Case #5 Summary

Grade: A
Comments: I had five boxes in the middle of the case that were as bad a stretch as I’ve seen in this break. But it was followed by the best four-box stretch I’ve had, with two Russell autos (including the gold), a superfractor (my second of the break), and a Perfect Game auto. That stretch, plus the two Almora autos at the beginning of the case make this my best case so far. Maybe I’ve just been lucky, but I think there’s a ton of value in this product and the prices are mostly holding steady or dropping.

I had no idea this was why -- terrible.

About ready to crack that 6th case. Last chance for entries!
[CONTESTS CLOSED]

No further entries accepted -- good luck!
There were 23 entries, by the way. One person picked a number under 100, 17 picked numbers between 100-200, 4 picked numbers in the 200s, and one person picked a number in the 300s. I'm not sure the latter is possible in this set, so I think it's basically down to 22 entries. A lot is going to depend on how high the serial numbers are for the Perfect Game/AFLAC autos, assuming there are 2-3 pulled, as these are numbered to 235. Good luck all!

Case #6, Box #2

Austin Aune Blue /500
Rashad Brown Blue /500
Jason Wilson Orange /250
Matt Moore Rookie Refractor /300
Andrew Heaney Auto

Grade: C-
Comments: Slow start. And unfortunately, both boxes have had a lot of miscut base RCs.

Case #6, Box #3

Jeremy Hefner Blue /500
Kevin Plawecki Blue /500
Nick Travieso Blue Refractor /250
Edwar Cabrera Blue Refractor /250
Addison Russell Perfect Game Auto 072/235
Lewis Brinson Auto

Grade: A+
Comments: There we go. I’ve done well by Addison Russell so far this break. His serial number of 072 is lower than all picks, however, so we still don’t have any contest leaders. Our lowest pick was 83, so we’ll probably need to wait for the next blue refractor auto to put someone in the contest lead. I predict a blue auto in the next 3 boxes.

Is that 6 boxes in a row without an Almora autograph? Doesn't seem possible. lol. Hopefully you'll seem some low-number Harpers from here out.

Case #6, Box #7

Jeffrey Popick Blue /500
Taylor Ard Blue /500
Patrick Merkling Orange /250
Yoenis Cespedes Rookie Refractor /300
Alfredo Rodriguez Blue Refractor /250
Richie Shaffer Best Die Cut Refractor /99
Paul Blackburn Blue Refractor Auto 134/150

Grade: B
Comments: My feeling was just one box too early. Nice to get a blue refractor, but this wasn’t my ideal subject. I’m hoping there’s one more colored auto hit in this case. Interestingly, Blackburn’s serial number was pretty high, high enough to eliminate all the contestants who made predictions under 125. Two contestants picked 125, so they now lead. If they should hold onto the lead throughout the remaining 4.5 cases, the Monday night football game will break the tie.

Case #6, Box #8

Yasmani Grandal Blue /500
Richie Shaffer Orange /250
Xavier Avery Rookie Refractor /300
Xavier Avery Blue Refractor /250
Nicholas Grim Gold Refractor /50
Shane Watson Auto

Grade: D+
Comments: Just got braces on my teeth this morning. I’m 47 – what’s up with that? Talk about an indignity.
