1995 Flashback Group Break Results

Thanks for everyone that participated again. Each time I go into hosting one of these breaks I wonder if there are enough people out there that even care to help make them happen...and you guys keep supporting me and I appreciate that.

All packages have been packed up and labels printed. Everything will go out tomorrow morning so keep your eyes on your mail box for later this week.

If you weren't able to watch last night on Twitter (@flywheels), here is a quick breakdown of the hits pulled from the boxes. Overall most of the teams had a nice stack of cards when it was all said and done.

Up first was the box of Sportflix and all of it's lenticular goodness.

Hammer Team fell at 1:4 packs so we had plenty of those divided up amongst the participants.

Detonators were 1:16 packs

Double Take were 1:48 packs. This one featured Mike Piazza and Carlos Delgado. It was randomly given away between the Dodgers and Blue Jays and ultimately went to the Blue Jays.

The Artist Proof parallels were 1:36 packs and went to the Dodgers.

Next up was the box of Summit. This was Pinnacle's effort at taking their Score brand to the next level with a thicker card stock and a more "premium" overall feel.

Nth Degree parallels were 1:4 packs and feature a sparkly rainbow sheen.

Big Bang fell 1:72 packs so we beat the odds with this one. Beautiful card in hand of Mike Piazza of the Dodgers.

New Age were 1:18 packs and we ended up w/ former ROY Billy Ashley...again of the Dodgers.

21 Club inserts were found 1:36 packs and this card goes to the Reds as we pulled Pokey Reese.

The last box would be Zenith, Pinnacle's first foray into the ultra premium level of cards (at the time). The black and gold look great together, especially in hand. Ripping this box was a lot of fun.

I know this card of Jeter isn't a RC, but I found it fun pulling a card of the future hall of famer from earlier in his career.

All-Star Salute inserts highlighted various efforts in the 1995 All-Star game. These were seeded 1:6 packs.

The Rookie Roll Call checklist features a lot of young players that never did much in the majors, but thankfully we got one of the better players. Love all the Dufex technology.

Last but certainly not least is one of the best looking cards I've pulled from 90's product in while. Z Team cards were a tough pull at 1:72 packs and this Griffey is an absolute beauty!

I wish I had felt better last night when I ripped the boxes, but it still was a lot of fun. Hopefully everyone will be happy w/ their stack of cards once it arrives. Until next time...


  1. I watched the break this morning. Lots of fun and anticipation. I'm excited about the cards. You did great and thanks for doing these. They are a lot of work I know. And get to feeling better.

  2. Those are some awesome looking Indians cards. Congrats to the one who claimed them.

  3. Watched it today, also. Thanks for running it!

  4. The chance at that Griffey Z-Team was one of the reasons I claimed the M's at the last minute(since the Yankees were already taken). Thanks for running this!

  5. Wow. That was a really awesome break! That Griffey Z-Team is a really nice pull. And haven't seen those Double Take inserts in a long time. Very cool.

    1. I loved pulling the Chipper Rookie Roll Call and of course the Griffey Z Team, but that Piazza/Delgado Double Take card is awesome. I may have to chase down some of those for myself!
