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.

June Quarry Group Break - Box #1 1996 Studio

It is time to get started on busting some boxes for the June Quarry Group Break.  A total of 20 teams were purchased (well 19, but I am including my Rockies to push us up to 20 and get the bonus).  But that will come later.

For now, let's get started with a box of 1996 Studio.  The insertion rate on this box is up for debate.  My SCD Catalog says we should get a total of around 8 inserts.  The rate on the pack says 1 insert per 9 packs which would give us 2-3.  To end the suspense the pack is correct, but there are a couple of pretty good ones coming up.

On with the show.

A couple of the packs brought about mid-90s sticking problems, but after inspecting the cards the damage was very minor and all but maybe 2-3 cards were doubles.  I hope everyone is okay with that, and if the damage was severe or plentiful I would've replaced this box.  Sometimes mid-90s boxes are about the same as expired redemptions, there is not much to do about it.  I had ABSOLUTELY no issues with any of the other boxes.

Winners for this box
Orioles
Padres
Red Sox
Dodgers
Braves

It's good to see some teams at the top that aren't always at the top.  The Ripken is a die cut and just an awesome card, congrats Ryan.

Losers for the box (top 2 are obvious)
Diamondbacks
Rays
Brewers
Giants
Phillies

Luckily only 2 of the teams in the bottom were purchased, but I think the owners of those two teams will soon be quite happy.  Next box coming probably later tonight.

When looking at the checklist and subsequently signing up for this month's break, the Ripken card was the one I hope you pulled for me the most. Everything else I get is just gravy now! Thanks!

That Gwynn probably paid for the break by itself! Thank you, thank you!
