The timing of this gift was uncanny as I had bought myself a hanger box just the day before. I was hoping to find some on my trip to Turner Field recently, but the one Target we hit while in Atlanta was fairly barren.

Isaiah 40: 6-8
“All people are like grass,
and all their faithfulness is like the flowers of the field.
7 The grass withers and the flowers fall,
because the breath of the Lord blows on them.
Surely the people are grass.
8 The grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of our God endures forever.”
Have a great day everyone!

I also tried the same thing using a different Facebook account for this very blog, but with it being under a different log in I found it very tiring to log in and out of the two Facebook accounts to post updates and such. So I deleted the old page/account and started over this morning. You can find the new page HERE.
This is just one more step I'm trying to take to get more people involved in the blog and hopefully unload some baseball, basketball and football cards!

My wife surprised me today with front row seats in the right field (right behind Jason Heyward!) for Saturday's Braves game against the Giants. So excited. Its been 2 years since I've been to Turner Field. Better wrap this up since we're leaving early tomorrow morning.

I do hate that the SPs are again part of the base set, but I pretend they don't exist and just focus on #1-200. There are only 2 SPs I want (Otis Nixon & Tim Salmon). If I get some in trades or in packs that is cool, but I'm not putting all the SPs on my want list.
Retail blasters yield 8 packs (7 packs and 1 extra pack...who you kidding Topps?) with 8 cards per pack. Let's see what I got, shall we?
If Topps had integrated the team colors into the "hockey stick" design I'd like these even better.

If you don't want to watch a 30 min video (I understand) then I'll let you know the other "winners" of the break.
- the 49ers got a sick Frank Gore patch #16/25 and a silver Franchise parallel of Frank Gore #04/99
- the Cowboys got a Miles Austin red parallel #06/30
- the Texans scored a RC auto of DeAndre Hopkins!
- the Broncos picked up a silver parallel of John Elway #06/32 in one of the last packs
- the Rams got the other RC auto, of Alec Ogletree and a Tavon Austin Hot Rookies insert
The 4th hit of the box was a Cecil Shorts III Inscriptions auto (Jaguars) and there were a few other numbered parallels that went to teams unclaimed aka me. Those will be going on eBay as soon as I have the chance to help recoup some of my costs.
All in all I had a great time and I really want to do another football break again. Maybe come August or September...maybe go back and pick something a little older/cheaper. I'll probably ask for some feedback on that idea in a few month...or you can let me know your thoughts on that now.
Thanks again for everyone who participated. See you next break!
