Our share of the case break from A Cardboard Problem

So we told you about the case breaks going on at A Cardboard Problem and the great opportunity to get in on them.  The Jumbos have been opened and all the hits from their two case breaks are up on their site.  So if you want to see what kind of hits a case can yield, use these links, Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3, to check out the complete results for yourself.  You can also follow this link to see the full, unedited videos of the Blog Case Break and the Facebook Case Break.

We bought 2 teams from their Facebook Case Break, the Baltimore Orioles and the San Francisco Giants at $24 each.  Here is what we got.

Let us start with the Orioles.

A Cal Ripken Jr Leather Nameplate

Mark Reynolds Sparkle Card

Eddie Murray Legends SP

Michael Gonzalez Gold Border Card #/2011

 Justin Duchscherer and Zach Britton Platinum Diamond Anniversary Cards

 2 Frank Robinson, 2 Brooks Robinson, Eddie Murray, Jim Palmer and Cal Ripken Jr.

And, of course, we got a case worth, probably between 5 and 7 full team sets plus singles, of Orioles base cards.   Now lets look at the Giants.

Thanks to the Card Bandits for taking on the task of this break.  If you don't already, you should be making A Cardboard Problem a part of you daily read. It's a great site.

So what do you think of our results?   Let us know in the comments below.


  1. you did a lot better than I did haha!
    Good cards are any of the giants for trade? I had the mariners if you're interested in any of those cards when they arrive.

  2. The Orioles lot is certainly better than the Giants! It's still a decent pull for each team, though - you did get an auto with the Giants.

  3. The Orioles seem to have been hitting the jackpot in group breaks lately. Congrats. Those Card Bandits gals' host a great break.
