Getting in on a case break is a great way to increase the odds of pulling your favorite player's or team's cards, usually at a small percentage of the cost of a single box.
Earlier this year I got in on a case break of 2011 Topps Baseball Series 2 over at "A Cardboard Problem," a great blog that should be part of your daily read. My results were quite good, with some really nice pulls, but that is just the luck of the draw. What makes breaks over at A Cardboard Problem really good is the way the breaks are handled. Since the case was preordered, it arrived as close to the first day of release as possible. The case was broken the day it arrived, live on UStream. The cards were sorted, mailed and in my hands within a week. The ladies who run A Cardboard Problem, Marie and Sooz, otherwise known as the Card Bandits, know how to do things right.
2011 Topps Finest Baseball is set to release on September 28th. It looks like it will be a great opportunity to collect a rainbow of parallel cards of some big name stars and rookies, along with some sharp looking auto and relic hits. A Cardboard Problem is doing a case break of Topps Finest and there is still time to get in on it. There are a few teams left, going at a cost of $40 a team including shipping, so if your PC includes any players from the following teams, make sure to get in on this break.
Chicago White Sox
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
Tampa Bay Rays
The following teams are not included in the break, but who knows, maybe if you are a big fan of these teams, you might be able to purchase them too.
Kansas City Royals
San Diego Padres
For less than the cost of half a box, its a great deal. USE THIS LINK to get to the break page and reserve your team before it is taken.
