2016 Spectra 2 box break
Loved this 2 box break. Was really looking forward to it, and it did not disappoint. Maybe my favorite break of all time of any sport.

Not often you whiff on top autos and still strike gold- literally and figuratively. What made this an even better break is that it has several of my favorite players (German nationals, Bale, Real Madrid players, Altidore). So there was some very good emotional value as well, which I think gets lost in breaks sometimes as it seems many care about the financial value.

The base cards

The base parallels. The die cuts /65 and the Bale /75. Bale was the first card in the break I found, and he happens to be favorite player. Not an auto or patch, but a nice hit anyway.

The nice patches. Costa /99, the others /199.

The nicer patches. If I had a top 15 list of players, all would be on it. So not only are they nice hits, they are guys I like. Ramos /75, Altidore /25two color, and the Marcello /10 with 4 colors!!!

The Autos. Not major booms here, but Odegaard has huge potential, De Vrij is a guy I follow. Had no clue who Pinella was, but the rest are pretty well known, just not huge hits.

Finally the card that had me dancing. First 1/1 pull ever. I root for 2 international teams equally- Germany and USA. I watch most every game of 3 teams (Tottenham, Real, and Dortmond). So a Reus 1/1, aside from being a good hit, has some major emotional value too.

Currently looking for 2010 John Elway Emblems of the Hall. Center must be filled with either info or auto. There are blank ones out there that are ugly....
