As most of you know we did a case break last night of 2010 Topps T-206. If you were in on the break and you want to see the video, you can view it here. I thought we got a GREAT case of cards from BlowOut Cards, and it was really fun to open. I nearly fell of my chair from one single card. Anyway, you guys check them out up close and personal now and let me know what you think.

These next 3 dual books are case hits (booklet auction link), meaning there should have only been one... We got super lucky.
Tim Lincecum/Roy Halladay
Joe Mauer/Brian McCann
However, they now pose a problem to 4 teams (I already worked out mine). I would like to see if they can work out a deal between them to do something with the cards as opposed to random choice amongst the 4 people as to who gets the cards. Please let me know what you guys decide so I know what to do with them. Sorry that the scans of the front of the books were small, but I wasn't going to risk damaging them in the scanner so I only closed it onto my finger, but for some reason the Mauer one looks great.
Overall, I think that this case was a huge success in terms of hits. We got waayyyyy more than we were supposed to, that's for sure.
Here are the mini variations:
-Cameron, Red Sox
The rest of the mini's you can see in the video. The historical events mini's, I have no idea what you guys want to do with. We can randomly give them to people who did not get hits (if they want them), or I can see if we have a complete set and we can sell that with the Strasburgs.
The next order of business are the Andre Dawson cards, I know there are one or two bloggers that collect him. Perhaps we offer them to those people first, and if they were not involved we can sell them to them?
OK guys, I gotta do some homework. Let me know what you thought of the break, AND whether or not you want a bunch of base cards in addition to your team set/inserts/hits. I will not be taking many additional base cards, probably around 4 to be honest so that will leave more for the people who are trying to build a set.
Anything else you guys want to comment on here, feel free. This was fun and comments will help me procrastinate all night. =)
P.S. I will work on sorting them tonight and tomorrow and hopefully get them mailed out Saturday/Monday. I separated all the mini's and golds to keep the mini's from getting damaged and to just make looking through the base cards easier.
