Prepare for another Group Break!

Spoiler Alert: Baseball Dad at All Tribe Baseball tipped me off to the fact that the Topps "Throwback" blasters have been sighted. In fact, he has them in hand and has a post about them up right now.

If they are out I will, as promised, volunteer to host another Group Break--this time for the Target Blasters. I realize that some of you may not have gotten your "Black" cards yet, but I assure you that they are in transit. Steve at White Sox Cards just got his. So, here is the first post to gauge interest in another break. When all was said and done on the last one I ended up almost exactly breaking even, when shipping was taken into consideration.

So, this time around, we need a minimum of 13 teams (slots) at $6 per team. Out of respect to bloggers who participated in the last break, I'll give you a one day window to renew your slot for the throwback cards. After that, I'll open the slots up to everybody else.

As before, we will be breaking 3 blasters of Target's Topps "Throwback" cards. If we can manage 18 teams (Phillies, Brewers, Cardinals, Braves and Twins were unclaimed last time, among others) then I can pick up a 4th Blaster. At this point, just let me know in the comments if you would like to reserve a slot. I will not ask for any money until I actually find the cards.

I'm hoping to do this break no later than a week from today (and start looking for these cards as early as tomorrow), so if you'd like to be in, reserve your spot today!


  1. Count me in for the White Sox and Joe from Cincy Reds Cards wants dibs on the Reds.

  2. I'm in (and posting about the last break at this moment)! Dodgers again.

  3. Put me down for the Cubs. I'll also throw a couple of dollars your way for an Alex Gordon if no one claims the Royals.

  4. Count me in for the same 4...Marlins, Rays, Yankees and Orioles.

  5. i'll take the twins, i suppose. any way to get the twins from the previous break too?

    let me know where to send payment. thanks.
