Group Break Loot - Dimwit Style !

The first group break loot of the year came in late last week !! A great package from Sam at the Daily Dimwit ! Sam had a selection of cool boxes: 2012 GQ, 2008 Masterpieces and some 2008 Goudey ! As the Yankees were already taken I took the Dodgers (and got allocated the Reds) for some trade bait and Kershaw cards, while GQ minis are always welcome anyways as I am trying to complete the full set ! I had some great loot with an autograph (for trade!), several Kershaw cards and minis !!

Let's start with the trade bait cards, a numbered Johnny Bench blue-framed card and a GQ auto card of Stubbs ! In case you are interested in setting up a trade around one of these let me know!

One of the best sets of the last 10 years, in my opinion of course, has been the 2008 Upper Deck Masterpieces set. I only need 1 card to complete the set, nr 94 !! nr 94 did not show up so if you happen to have that one or still need a bunch of 2008 Masterpieces, I have plenty to trade including these...

Did I say Kershaw ? Yes, lucky for me the loot included some Kershaw cards,  including this 2012 GQ SP card I was still missing !! Only a few more SPs to go to complete my 2012 GQ set !

Minis, did I hear Minis ?!?!?! Yes, a bunch of minis were included, helping me try to complete all the 2012 GQ mini subsets (big challenge but a fun one !).

Brown-bordered GQs have been difficult to get here in Europe as they are only included in retail as far as I understand (and those are difficult to come by here). The break included a couple of nice ones including Kershaw and Koufax !!

All in all I probalby have around 60 cards from this break for trade from these 3 sets so if you want to set up a trade let me know !!

Thanks Sam for a great group break, looking forward to the next one !!


  1. While I was awfully critical of Gypsy Queen last year, it was a fun box to break for BoBuBingo.

    Now I'm going to give you the not-so-subliminal hardly-telepathic hint to come on over and give my case break a try. ;)

  2. The Masterpieces Griffey an the framed Koufax Gypsy Queen are awesome!

  3. the framed cards add a nice touch, though I think these bronze frames are a lot better than the green ones they've used on some.

  4. I must check to see if you still have that Brnch.
