More JABO Group Break Loot !

I know this is already the third post in a short while concerning cards that Kyle at JABO was kind enough to send me, but my moto is "Every package deserves a post" !! A few weeks ago Kyle at Juuust a bit Outside (JABO) organized a fun group break, opening 2003 Topps Bazooka, 2008 UP SP Authentic, 2005 Topps Chrome and 2003 Fleer Flair. I was lucky enough to grab the Yankees, Mets and Braves. I liked the selection of boxes Kyle came up with, and I had a lucky break with some nice hits as well (at the end of this post!). Have a look at what Kyle send me !

First up, 2003 Topps Bazooka, a cool set I must say !

Roger Clemens and Bernie Williams in action...

The Soriano on the left is a much thicker card compared to the others, with a colored logo

Minis, yes Minis, the set contains Minis, I always like Minis !!!

Secondly, 2003 Fleer Flair, a set I like to be honest, although reviews I have seen have been mixed

A couple of Yankees including Jeter and Clemens...

 ...and a couple of Braves in the form of Maddux and Chipper Jones. I think I will try to complete this set, I like it !

Thirdly, 2008 UP SP Authentic, another nicely looking set I must admit

I really like these Marquee Matchups cards and it adds another card to my Glavine Collection !

The base cards are also nice, above David Wright and Jose Reyes, with the latter of course recently having moved to sunny Florida.

The great things about Upper Deck in 2008 was the insert series Yankee Stadium Legacy and luckily this break also had some in it. I decided the start collecting this set a while back and I need at least 5,000 (!!) more of this set so if you have any lying around let's set-up a trade !!

Last-up, before the hits, 2005 Topps Chrome. Some years of Topps Chrome I like and some years have something funny about them. The 2005 set looks a bit funny to me so I am not a big fan of it. Still, I will try to complete the Yankees team set of course !

Here two of the Mets that Kyle pulled for me, Reyes and Piazza (Joe let me know if you need this one!). Now lets move to the hits of the break !!

First up, an awesome Yankee Stadium Legacy Jersey card of Jason Giambi, with Pinestripe !!

Second hit was a Fleer Flair Power Tools card (#200) with Relics on both side !! Never seen a double-sided relic card before so for me a first !!

Lastly, a Chipper Jones Diamond Cuts Jersey card which I will add to my trade bait list !!

Kyle, an awesome break again so as always: Thank you very much !! Do check out Kyle's blog JABO for more fun Box Breaks !
