April Group Break is Open (No Fooling)

I followed the advice of some of the commenters and took a look at some older Fleer baseball products. I stepped a little bit outside of the price range I set up, but I found a really interesting product that should be fun to break.

Here's what we're looking at:
One (1) box of 2005 Topps Retired Signature Edition
One (1) box of 2003 Fleer Mystique

Topps Retired is probably one of the best boxes I've ever opened. There are five uncirculated autos in the box, plus a #/500 gold parallel per pack, plus some beautiful base cards. We'll probably get at least one Hall-of-Famer auto in the box, but most of them are likely to be team/fan favorite-type guys who aren't necessarily hobby favorites.

Fleer Mystique is shrouded in as much mystery as its name. We are promised two memorabilia cards per box, plus one "Mystery Pack" in the box. I'm not sure what this means, but if you do, don't spoil it for us.

A $21.00 payment will get you one team of your choice (stated in the comments) and one random team. Send your immediate payment to:
As always, include your name, screen name, team chosen, and mailing address as a note with payment. Good luck!

We'll take the Redbirds.

gcrl said...


Retrofan said...

Red Sox please. Payment forthcoming.

hiflew said...

Since the Rockies have no cards in the 2005 box, I'll pop on the Mets for trade bait and hopefully swap with anyone who gets the Rox as a 2nd team. Payment will come Friday morning if that's alright.

Zpop said...

I'll have the Twins please.

PunkRockPaint said...

Okay... I'll take the Padres (now that I have waited the requisite three day April Fools waiting period.)

Payment in a matter of minutes.

Not sure if Ryan G paid for them or not, but if not, I will take the Giants. Payment will be on the way shortly.


Alex said...

i will take the reds

hiflew said...

Hey Thorzul if you still need one I'll take the Royals as a 2nd buy. I'm getting a hit in this break. Knock wood.

Thorzul said...

hiflew, I've marked you down for the Royals. No problem on sending the payment Friday.

The break is now full.
