Snow Day = February Group Break

If today were a normal day, I'd be forcing a group of 9-year-olds to write, edit, and revise an expository paragraph right now. Today, however, is no normal day. The city of Milwaukee, along with much of the rest of the country, is taking the day off. The snow, which was above my waist in most places, had been cleared, so now it's time to open up the February group break.

The Goods:
One (1) box 2005 Donruss Diamond Kings Update
One (1) box 2009 Upper Deck A Piece of History
One (1) box 2010 Famous Fabrics Series 2

The feedback was very positive about the inclusion of a box of Famous Fabrics from time to time, so we'll try one of those again. The 2005 Diamond Kings regular series is a so-so product, but boxes of the Update series, if you can find them, are about three times as expensive. I haven't checked out the checklist, but I've heard that there are good cards to be had. And the Piece of History, well, I'm still chasing that gold Sabathia from the set, plus there are a bunch of hits and numbered cards per box.

Two-team slots will go for $25 this time. As before, your first team is your choice, and your second team will be randomly assigned. A randomization will then be done for the NHL, NBA, and NFL teams that could pop up in the Fabrics box, with trading encouraged. Also, remember to include your screen name, team chosen, and address in the note with your PayPal payment. You can send payment to:

1. Angels -
2. Athletics -
3. Rangers - Colin (paid)
4. Mariners -
5. White Sox - Thorzul
6. Indians - Thorzul
7. Royals -

I will take the Giants. Payment is on its way. Thank you.

Also, I wanted to let everyone know that the Famous Fabrics 1/1 Worthy I got in the last break will be available for trade. I'd love to get some 1950's Giants or Yankees or something along those lines. If you want to make a reasonable offer, please send them to If nothing comes up, I will eventually auction the card off on Ebay around the time of this year's NBA Finals.
