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 #4 2004 Bazooka

I have sort of motored through this break, partially because I am very impatient, but mostly because this will be a busy week for me.  So I figured I would go ahead and post the last box I currently have in hand.  The Documentary box is scheduled to be here tomorrow and of course Ryan's packs as well.  I am hoping to have all packages mailed out on Friday (but it might take longer).

But that's later, let's focus on now.  This set is very similar to the 2003 version of Bazooka.  All 3 of the inserts are back along with a new one, temporary tattoos of players (Yep they are cool).  The parallels for this year are the mini and a red bordered.  Both parallels are inserted in every pack, with the reds not included in hit packs.

The rest are as follows

Bazooka Comics (1:4) = 6 expected
4 in 1 Stickers (1:4) = 6 expected
Bazooka Stand-Ups (1:8) = 3 expected
Tattoos (1:4) = 6 expected

There is one insert in every pack except the hit packs as well.

Finally, there are 30 variation cards in this set as well.  30 select players (some odd choices) have two different photos for the base card as well as parallels (for no apparent reason).  Oh well, more for us to collect.

The box. Stars galore.

The pack. Very bland.
On with the show.

See I told you not to be upset about the last box, bonus hits are always fun.  Honestly without the extra Biggio hit (although unclaimed), I would've been complaining about the lack of name power with the hits.  Jeremy Giambi?  Really?  Two duplicates inserts were bad, especially the Standups since were only 3 in the box.  But those are minor complaints in reality, we got 4 hits here.  And if you couldn't tell by the pics I decided to post, I LOVE the tattoos.

Box winners
Astros, Red Sox (again), Yankees, Mets, Blue Jays

Box losers
Giants (1 base card only sorry Ryan), Phillies, Reds, Cardinals


Here is the total for each team for this box ONLY including the 4 in 1 stickers.

I believe that the bonus packs I sent should arrive tomorrow. I'm enjoying the break so far, keep up the great work!

That Berkman tattoo is creepy! I love that Ruben Sierra bat card.

Nathan said...

The inserts are freakin' awesome in this set (the base design is ugly as sin, though).

Thanks so much Hiflew, it's been a fantastic break.

What is going to happen to all the unclaimed teams cards?

Also; Halladay duplicates are never a problem for me, even if they are inserts.

Great break so far!
