One of the two breaks that I try to get in every month is with Sam of The Daily Dimwit. Rarely does one of Sam's breaks go poorly for my Rockies. Unfortunately, this was one of those rare occasions. I only got 9 Rockies total and 4 of them were dupes. Considering that with the sets involved, I only had maybe 8 total cards before the break...4 dupes ain't good. You can't win them all and I did get 5 new cards of my Rockies. Here are all nine cards for my Rockies.
However, with my second team, the Cubs, I did relatively well. I picked them up in a trade with Ryan H of O No Another Orioles Blog for my randomized team, the Blue Jays. I didn't get a "hit," but I did get some interesting cards and a couple of SPs.
Community Gum is a big-time collector of both Kerry Wood and Greg Maddux and is one of my better trading buddies. Jon if you read this, you have dibs on these six.
All of these Cubs (and many others I didn't show) are for trade, but like I said Jon has dibs on the Woods and Maddux.
Thanks for the break, Sam, and I am looking forward to the Trade Bait Draft tomorrow night.
