A place where Colorado Rockies baseball card collectors (all 3 of us) can waste some time reading about our favorite sport. The Rockies and their cards will be the primary focus, but I like to go off on tangents as well so anything and everything baseball related may be covered here.

Quarry Group Break BOX #3 2003 Bazooka

Well, we finished off 1998 Bowman and everyone got a decent starting stack.  Let's move on to 2003 Bazooka which promises 3 hits per box along with 1 silver parallel (except in hit packs) and 1 mini per pack.  There are also several neat (yes, I said neat, leave me alone) inserts in this set.  Expect the following:

Bazooka Comics (1:4) = 6 expected
4 in 1 Stickers (1:4) = 6 expected
Bazooka Stand-Ups = 3 expected

The stickers feature 4 different base cards in stamp form with multiple teams present.  I will not be randoming these cards, I will be presenting them to the team present with the worst box.  My definition of the worst box is in the following order - least # of hits, least # of inserts, least # of parallels, least # of base cards.  I went through in the order they were pulled from the pack and each winning card counted as an insert in future "match ups".  I also automatically eliminated any team I now own with the exception of the Rockies.  I hope this makes sense and seems fair to everyone.  Basically if you get a hit in the box, you probably won't win randomizations...but you did get a hit.  Call me a Communist if you will, but I want everyone to have a good break.  This is sort of new so I hope I explained it well, any questions comment below.



There are also 30 logo variation parallels on select players which feature a color Bazooka logo and a facsimile autograph rather than the black and white logo only that are (1:4), so expect 6 of those as well.

Finally, there are 30 versions of card #7 featuring Bazooka Joe with the logo of each of the 30 MLB teams.  So everyone gets a shot at this one.  Not sure on the odds, but they have to be around (1:1).

Okay, we got shorted a hit.  But before anyone gets upset I am not one for spoilers, but we will make it up in the next box.  Onto the box, we got all of the expected inserts and several teams got a Bazooka Joe.  Two teams were left without a single base card, my Rockies and surprisingly the Red Sox.  Although, the Red Sox made up for it with the bat card of a Hall of Famer so there probably won't be any complaints.  My Rox got 2 parallels of "players" that never played in the majors.  Oh well, can't win them all.  If there is a break I prefer to badly in...it is my own.

Box Winners

Wow, that is a super fun break. There's a ton of cool stuff in that set.

The Mark Ellis picture is cool, I'll have to send it over to BA Benny - I'm sure it would fit nicely into his American flag collection.

Yeah I enjoyed busting that one quite a bit. I think 2004 is even better though with the inserts.

Spiegel83 said...

That Shawn Green is a cool insert. Thanks for pulling it for me.

Colbey said...

The Bazooka sets were always fun IMO. Glad to see my team landed a few of the comic cards!

Kind of weird how the Sox came up short, at least until the hit, that bat card is cool and I'll really enjoy adding it to my collection. Neat (yes, I use that word as well) break so far, and yes, no real complaints from me either...
