JABO Chrome Arrives

A few weeks ago, Kyle at Juuust a bit Outside (or JABO) organized a box break opening up a range of Topps Chrome set from various years. I was lucky enough to grab the Yankees and the randomizer gave me the Rays as well.

First up two serial numbered cards of which one was my favourite pitchers: Rivera !! Awesome card but still very annoying he is out for the season. I hope he comes back to have a "real" final season next year !

Next up, Wade Boggs and another Mariano Rivera card I didn't own yet !!

Bernie Williams in action !

The break wouldn't be complete without some cool Jeter cards. I like these !

Meet Tino Martinez and Joe Girardi during his playing these.

One of the several Mickey Mantle cards as well as agreat looking Wade Boggs card

Two golden oldies, great looking cards !

Bernies Williams and another Rivera card !!

Two more pitchers: Pettitte and Weaver

One of the great looking Star Power card: Wade Boggs and a nice Canseco card.

The best was still to come as Kyle offered a great Topps 1976 Lou Gehrig card in exchange for one of the cards he pulled for me during the break. Of course I couldn't refuse and received this great card, one of the first I now own from the 1976 set, a set which I am going to, more actively, chase at some point.

Kyle is holding another box break soon, opening a few boxes of 2012 Topps Archives. I think he still has one or two open spots so check out his site ! Thanks Kyle for another great break, looking forward to the next one !!


  1. Topps Chrome is the best. Well, almost the best. I'd take some of that nice vintage stuff first.

  2. Chrome is the best though I favor Bowman in place of Topps

  3. I'm not going to lie. I'm a little jealous of all the group breaks you've done!

  4. The Jeter Diamond Duos is quite excellent!
