I am Joe Collector, or am I?

I bought into my first group case break ever, held over at iamjoecollector.blogspot.com yesterday (the 27th). Of course, I was hoping to pull some Indians, and am still hoping to be able to trade for some, but here is what I ended up getting ("the hits"):

David Wright Finest Moments Red Refractor Auto /25
Jonathon Niese Patch Auto /285
Justin Morneau Refractor
Gary Sheffield Refractor

The Wright will find itself a very good home (along with another surprise I got in the mail today), but the others are up for grabs for anyone else that bought into the break who is willing to give up Indians.

I have to say, I missed the live break, but it was a lot of fun to see what I ended up with! It's a fun way to feed my habit, that's for sure. Of course, I'm so clueless, I have no idea what the cards look like to post pics here....

Thanks for some great fun!


  1. Yeah, I had 2 spots in that break and did really well. Groat, who actually got the Sizemore printing plate, is trading it to me. I'm excited as heck about it. I've never had anything like that before.

    This kind of thing makes me wish I could afford to just go crazy and buy a few cases of stuff to see what I get. But, my wife likes me right now (I think) and I want to keep it that way.

    Put up a scan of that David Wright card when you get it. I'll bet it looks fantastic.

  2. You are a brave man for participating in a group break. As a step toward overcoming our unreasonable and morbid fear of group breaks, may we ask a question? Is it fun or frustrating? Do you experience buyer's remorse more or less than just buying a box or pack on your own?

  3. I would be more than happy to quell your need for indians cards for the Niese card. I have a bunch of indians jersey and patch cards, some vintage stuff if you're interested. email me at jacobmrley@yahoo.com so we can work on some specifics.
