This is my first break so I am trying to do the best I can, so what I decided to do is post each members stats, inserts, and hits.  I will continue to do this until I am done.  In the stats I already took the doubles out and randomized the doubles, so they are included in the total stats.  Mind you these people got all these cards for $18, lower than the price of a blaster box! (this break thing does take a LOT of work!)


Cardinals, Cubs, Nats/Expos (+doubles randomized)

PTown Tom at Waiting 'Til Next Year was one of the first that put their name on this break.  He score two Cardianls prospects from 1998 and a great amount of other great cards!  The Ankiel Diamond Best is an insert set of one per box, and he scored that hit.  Thanks for being in the break, and I should have these wrapped up and mailed by Jan 2nd!

  1. Wow, that's a pretty good hall. I'm a Cubs fan, but a few Cardinal hits should net me couple of sweet Cubs cards at my LCS.

    Thanks for the detailed breakdown! That must have been pretty time consuming to put together.

    Believe it or not, the card I'm most excited over is the Team Best card of Matt Clement. He clinched a playoff spot for the Cubs in 2003 on the same day I proposed to my wife! What a great day!
