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.

July Quarry Group Break - Box #3 1998 SkyBox Dugout Axcess

Two boxes down and 4 to go in this pretty good break so far.  4 hits (1 more than expected) to four teams that usually have to watch others get hits and a couple of "near case" cards.  And that's just so far.  Here we go with box #3 and it is a LOT of cards.  36 packs with 10 cards per pack = 360 cards (plus 2 additional inserts per pack for a side set).  The problem with that many cards is this set is only 150 cards strong.

As I mentioned in the original group break announcement, everyone WILL get all inserts of their team.  Additionally you will get the FIRST appearance of every set card for your team.  All additional duplicates will be randomed as partial sets at the end of the break.  To simplify, I am going to build sets from the cards and break the first into team sets and random the rest.  I will also do the same thing for the Double Headers, which is the 20 card side set, of which we will get 72 cards.  I hope that made sense to everyone, but if there are any questions (or anyone that can explain my thoughts better than me) feel free to ask.

Once again I will have to go light on pictures because of so many packs.

BOX WINNERS
Mariners
Braves
Giants
Blue Jays
Rockies

The Mariners take yet another top 2 spot in this break.  I am so glad they got purchased this time, because I would hate to have hogged all of these great cards (unless they were Rockies of course).  The Gronks cards come every other box with Redemption Autos being in every other box...we got lucky.  The Braves picked up a nice selection, although the Superheroes cards are kind of odd.  I have never once saw Andruw Jones and thought of the Silver Surfer, but SkyBox chose him because they are both "wanderers."  Who knows?  The other two did reasonably well with inserts and I just wanted to see my team on the winners list for once as the final team (and I am happy with a nice insert of the late Darryl Kile).

BOX LOSERS
Pirates
Angels
Cubs
Reds
Rangers

It was hard t pick losers for the box as well, since we did get every base card.  I chose the Pirates and Rangers simply because they are the only 2 Frequent Flyers that didn't show up (missed former Rockies Tony Womack and Tom Goodwin).  The other three just got their 3 main base cards with no subset cards or inserts.  So not really losers in that their cards didn't show up...they just weren't in the set as much.

What the heck is a Groink? Wow. I've seen some strange sets in the past, but this one takes the cake. I have a few of these cards scattered in my collection, but I've never seen many of the inserts. Always good seeing crazy '90s wildness!

Your box fared much better than the one I had in a previous group break. I didn't get any of the Superheroes for starters. Nice Griffey card too - even if the insert name is odd.
