Group Break Red Sox and More

Just showing off some of the recent pickups for my Red Sox collection.

Up first is the group break results for the 2013 Panini Golden Age box:
1.  2013 Panini Golden Age Playing Cards Joe Wood.  This was the one card I really wanted.  It was #10 on my Most Wanted list.  Wood was a terrific pitcher for several years, including 1912 when he went 34-5.  This is a terrific-looking card of an old-time player.  It even looks retro.

2.  2013 Panini Golden Age Mini Carolina Brights Joe Wood.  Another Wood card, this one a mini.

3.  2013 Panini Golden Age Tris Speaker.  I mentioned in the group break post that I was a little surprised that this was a Boston card.  Speaker after all entered the Hall of Fame with Cleveland.

4.  2013 Panini Golden Age Joe Wood.  Yet another Wood card.  I still need the Delong Gum card.

5.  2013 Panini Golden Age Jim Rice.  The only relatively recent Red Sox card I got in that box.

All in all this was a reasonably successful box for me.

Next is the results from the 2013 Topps Chrome box.
6.  2013 Topps Chrome Jon Lester.  One of three Red Sox cards in the same four-card pack.  That is awesome.  I did once pull two Red Sox out of a three-card pack.

7.  2013 Topps Chrome Allen Webster RC.  The second card out of the pack.

8.  2013 Topps Chrome Shane Victorino.  And the third card.

9.  2013 Topps Chrome David Ortiz.  He hit a dramatic grand slam against the Tigers to tie the game in Game 2 of the ALCS.

10.  2013 Topps Chrome Jacoby Ellsbury.  He had an impressive four hit night in Game 4.

11.  2013 Topps Chrome Refractor Dustin Pedroia.  The only non-base card of the Red Sox in this box.  Still a successful break due to pulling seven Red Sox out of 96 total cards.

12.  2013 Topps Chrome Dustin Pedroia.

Finally I bought a three-pack value pack of Panini Prizm.  Only 15 cards in the box, but one of them was this:
13.  2013 Panini Prizm David Ortiz.  So that worked out nicely.

  1. Those Golden Age cards look pretty cool! I need to pick up some of those soon. I really like the look of the minis. The playing card insert is nice too.
