Coming up empty


A while ago, I signed up for a case break over at A Cardboard Problem.  Well, the break finally took place once the cards were released from Topps and ACP got hold of the cards.  After the break, I received an email from Marie.  She let me know that the Indians raked in exactly ZERO cards from the entire break!  Say what!?  ZERO Indians cards in the entire box or case or whatever it was!?  No way!  Way.  Nothin'.  Because Marie is such a great person, however, she made an offer I couldn't refuse and so I will be trying again for the next break.
I can't help but wonder how it is that in all of the Topps collation systems, there are ZERO Indians cards in the box.  In the whole box!?  Really, Topps?  Oh wait, I know.. This was an "error box" right?


  1. I have to admit, I found it quite funny. I nearly spit Coke out of my mouth, as I was taking a swig as I was reading Marie's email. How bizarre that the entire break would yield not ONE card from a given team!? I think Topps owes Marie on that one.

  2. D'OH! How do you strike out in a case break!? That's brutal! I like the blank card template though, that could come in handy later.
