The whole point of those breaks is first and foremost to have fun opening packs of cards, but also to accumulate trade bait for the blogosphere. So far, we've been having a ton of fun, but we haven't really hit it big yet. And my end of the break is no exception. Some nice cards are coming my way courtesy of Brian and the few boxes he picked, and I feel bad that I can't send anything substantial in return. But alas, such are the laws of box breaking. Maybe I should choose my boxes better, though, there's room for improvement ! I've really been striking out on early 2000s boxes, despite drooling on the checklist and its possibilities. I suppose that's the key word....(possibilities, that is. Not drooling. Drool is never a key word in anything).
Anyway, this short post to show off what Matt pulled for me in his 2014 PANINI (!!!!) Classics box. I'm not too impressed by Solarte, but it sure is a nice looking card, with that pinstripe to top it. And as I said the other day, the Big Hurt relic was his, as he had the White Sox (we drafted teams this time instead of going NL vs AL, or attributing divisions). But instead of having the card cross the ocean twice, he let me have it right away. That's how couples last : kindness and understanding.
