The greatness that has been showing up in my mailbox has been amazing. Colbey from the fine blog, Cardboard Collections, held one of his cheapo group breaks recently. He always busts a wide variety of products which is usually boxes from the 90s. The prices are low and the cards are always cool looking. Colbey usually picks boxes that not many collectors have a lot of cards from. This makes his breaks new and fresh.
I was luck enough to get the Orioles as my second team for this break. The Dodgers were my first team of course. Colbey did a nice enough job pulling a lot of Cal Ripken cards for me and a healthy dose of Dodgers. I also dig seeing Ripken listed as a third baseman. I know that I watched him play third base but, I still think of him as a beast shortstop.
Please Topps, bring back the Stadium Club. We, as collectors, need a set that focuses on photography more than we need another vintage set or a high end set that I will never purchase.
That is what needs to happen in today's collecting world. Topps needs somebody to push them for something greater than simplicity. Maybe Pannini can do that this year. But, I am not really into logo less photos or autos of 18 year old draftees.
Keep up on the breaks, Colbey. I love taking a trip down 90s lane.
