2011 Leaf Valiant Draft – 7 Case Break

Posted by Jim November - 19 - 2011 0 Comment

After a pretty solid experience with Leaf Metal Draft, and after lengthy discussions with my good friend Phil Mason, I decided to buy in quite a bit heavier on Leaf Valiant than I did with Metal. The Crusaders look, the chance for Ichiro, the stellar checklist…if things broke right, this product had the chance to be a money maker. That still remains to be seen. So here is the “damage”  [ Read More ]

I’ll let the images do the talking. I didn’t include autos here, as I mentioned in a previous post, almost 160 of them are at BGS.

2011 Bowman Chrome – 20 case Recap

Posted by Jim November - 19 - 2011 0 Comment

2011 Bowman Chrome…I have such a love and hate for you. I hit one of the most significant non-autos in the whole product (Ichiro Atomic 1/1 – Japanese Back) and I pulled 7 Harper Autos (3 base, 3 ref, 1 blue), but some of the decisions made by Topps for this product really just frustrated the daylights out of me. Here is a short-ish list of my complaints: 1) My  [ Read More ]

2011 Bowman Chrome Checklist in Excel

Posted by Jim October - 17 - 2011 3 Comments

With 2011 BC just 2 days away from official release, I did some searching last night for a BC Checklist in Excel, but I couldn’t find one and certainly not one with all the latest updates/changes. So, I was able to convert a PDF to excel and then modified the list to include the most recent changes and of course organized it in a way that is useful. I also  [ Read More ]


With Bowman Chrome scheduled to arrive at my door next Wednesday I decided I needed a little appetizer and with 2011 Leaf Metal Draft Baseball releasing it seemed like the perfect choice.  Based upon the odds that we calculated here: FCB I knew what I was getting into.  Thankfully I managed to beat the odds a little.  The odds would say that I should have hit 5 cards made up of  [ Read More ]


With 2011 Bowman Chrome due out on October 19th that means I’m just 10 days away from sleepless nights…oh wait, I’ve had sleepless nights since September 1st when my son was born.  Oh well, what’s a few more weeks without sleep?  I’ve got 20 cases of 2011 BC coming in and I’m excited.  I love busting and I love seeing the variety of pulls you get.  I’m a numbers guy  [ Read More ]

2010 Topps Triple Threads Baseball

Posted by admin July - 17 - 2011 0 Comment

Well there is no doubt that Topps Triple Threads is a really fun break.  Sadly though, the price and the return just isn’t there.  I’m not normally compulsive when it comes to which products I break, but in the case of 2010 TTT, it truly was compulsive.  I had decided to take a day off work to go to New York to visit some friends from FCB.  The weather looked  [ Read More ]

2010 Bowman Chrome Break and BGS Sub

Posted by admin July - 17 - 2011 0 Comment

If you recall back to October of 2010 Bowman Chrome just released and the product was collapsing.  It was mass produced, the main subject in the set was Strasburg and he was out with Tommy John.  I was able to negotiate a price that I was satisfied with and bought into 20 cases after the Wrapper Redemption was announced.  All told, this still wasn’t the smartest buy I’ve ever made,  [ Read More ]

Welcome to Big Break Sports Cards!

Welcome to Big Break Sports Cards.  I’ll be using BBSC as a collection point for the live breaks that I love to do.  I’ll be posting images here, I’ve synched my Twitter account here, and hopefully I’ll sync up my ustream account and host some live video.  Ideally we can even transact a little as well.  We’ll see how it goes. Here’s a little about me:  I’ve collected Baseball Cards  [ Read More ]
