Enough of horror movies already...this is a trading card blog, right?! I do promise to get back on topic so to speak really soon. I've still got a big project I'm working on which has limited my time and ability to do much card related, but things are starting to take shape. So while I work on that I wanted to tackle another one of my Affordable Group Breaks.
OK. Let's try this again. Over the last few months I've veered off the path that I originally started on when I began hosting monthly group breaks. Some of them were very successful in terms of the amount of participation. Others not so successful. This month I wanted to go back to my "roots" and stick with mid to late 90's product. Once again this break is sponsored by the great people at Baseball Card Exchange. I hope others find this month's all Pinnacle selection at least intriguing.

I'm also tossing in 2 boxes of 1996 Pinnacle Aficionado. When I bought these boxes on the secondary market I didn't read the description good enough before making my purchase so I failed to see that all of the packs had already been opened. I haven't gone through many of the packs yet, but I'm guessing any "good" insert(s) have already been removed. I'm not really factoring these boxes into the cost so this just means a few extra cards for your team(s).
Teams will be $6.00 shipped. Each additional team(s) will be $4.00. If you are interested in taking more than say 2 teams let me know and perhaps I can work out a slightly better bulk deal.
To save time the boxes will be opened on video. A recap post will feature all of the inserts pulled. My goal is to have all of the boxes opened and the cards in the mail to you before Thanksgiving.
The faster you pay the quicker I can have the boxes ordered and we can start the break. To claim your team please leave a comment with your requested team(s) and then please submit your gift payment via PayPal to cardboardcollections at yahoo.com. Due to PayPal cracking down on gift payments PLEASE DO NOT PUT ANYTHING IN THE SUBJECT LINE OR COMMENT BOX! I already have address for most of the "regulars", but please e-mail me your full mailing address and the team you claimed after payment is sent.
