I'm pretty sure I already ot a David Dahl auto in one of our previous breaks. I have no idea who Andrew Toles is, but it's a very low numbered auto of a major franchise, so that always makes good trade bait !
I wasn't impressed with the base cards (and even less with their gold parallels), but as I looked at them closer, they grew on me. Why not, after all, at least some thought went into those cards.
And finally, the kind of pull we always hope for in a box break but hardly ever happens. Matt jokingly wrote in the email presenting the box he picked that he hoped there would be 4 Aaron Judge autos. There was one. We'll take it ! It's a sticker auto on a Panini product, so it won't reach amazing heights in terms of value, but you can hardly dream of a better pull, and it's all mine, MINE ! Well, if they do send the card to me one day, but I don't think that will be a problem.
The package Matt sent me was also loaded with a few more blasts that he always so carefully choses, thanks to his great knowledge of sports and of everybody's collecting needs :
More from Immaculate, this time with a very nice Encarnacion swatch.
And finally, I never ever thought I'd receive a Carmelo auto in a trade with my baseball budies one day, and yet there it is ! I wasn't exactly sad to see him leave New York for OKC, but he's still a major NY player from the past (ugly) years and a major addition to my collection.
I'm once more baffled
thanks a lot Matt for the break (wooohoooo, Judge auto !!!) and for the incredible extras !
