Group Break - Box # 3 - Topps Lineage #1

Well we are on a roll now... here is box number 3 of the break, our first box of Topps Lineage!

First up, we have the box topper and the 6 1975 Topps stype minis...
 And then there are the 3-D, Cloth and Stand Up Inserts...
 The Platinum refractors... Nice list of names there...
 The Diamond Anniversary inserts... Chris Sale, that dude's cards show up in all my breaks of current products, he haunts me... The Aaron is pretty sweet...
 Next up, the 2011 Rookies inserts, and then the Venezuelan parallels...
 Finally we have our hits! The Giants get a nice auto, as do the Cardinals with playoff hero Jason Motte and then we have an Uggla sighting, not a bad year for the 2nd baseman even with the horrendous start that he had.
The 4th and final box will be tomorrow with the randomization of non-hit slots to happen on Friday by Brian over at Play At The Plate who agreed to do it since he already got the Ogando hit from the first box of Chrome and will be ineligible. Thanks Brian. I'll add further details to how that whole deal will go down at that time as well...


  1. I officially hate another closer with a beard...Motte.

  2. That was the entire team set of Red Sox, you pulled all 9. I'll have to remember that for next year. Maybe I can get them all in a single hobby box and save some money, lol.

  3. Oh, and I think you mentioned that the Browns became the Orioles. I think they actually became the Cardinals.

    "In 1899, the St. Louis Browns became the St. Louis Perfectos. That season, Willie McHale, a columnist for the St. Louis Republic reportedly heard a woman refer to the team’s red stockings as a “lovely shade of Cardinal.” McHale included the nickname in his column and it was an instant hit among fans. The team officially changed its nickname in 1900."

  4. "The Baltimore Orioles are a professional baseball team based in Baltimore, Maryland in the United States. They are a member of the Eastern Division of Major League Baseball's American League. One of the American League's eight charter franchises in 1901, it spent its first year as a major league club in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, as the Milwaukee Brewers before moving to St. Louis to become the St. Louis Browns. After 52 mostly hapless years in St. Louis, the Browns moved to Baltimore in 1954 and adopted the Orioles name in honor of the official state bird of Maryland."

  5. Thanks for the great hit! I was debating whether I should buy that card or wait till after the break. I am happy I waited.

    Bring on the last box!

  6. Yeah Pederson, I had the 1900 Browns and the 52 Browns mixed up. Damn you Ken Burns! So much history, I can't keep it all strait, lolol.
