The Return of El Cheapo: NL West

Finally, ladies and gentlemen, the National League West.

Team: Colorado Rockies
Buyer: hiflew
Best Card: 2008 Donruss Threads #59 Aneury Rodriguez AUTO (216/975)
This makes two great breaks in a row for hiflew. In addition to the Rodriguez auto, he's also getting the Chad Bettis card from earlier. Rodriguez is no longer a Rockie, but has earned a spot on the Astros' roster this year.

I also feel like showing off this 2005 Bowman Chrome Brandon Durden Blue Refractor (095/150). Just something about that blue refractoriness makes it look so cool. Also, hiflew is hosting a group break of his own right now, so you might want to check that out.

Team: Los Angeles Dodgers
Buyer: Spiegel83
Best Card: 2010 Upper Deck Portraits #SE-43 Russel Martin
The Dodgers were another team that had a rough go at it, netting only five total cards. I just hope Spiegel83 gets something he needs.

Team: San Francisco Giants
Buyer: BS
Best Card: 2005 MLB Artifacts Future Stars #201 Adam Shabala (682/799)
Sorry to end on a down note, but Shabala has not played professional baseball since 2005.

Okay, that's it for all of the claimed teams. I'll be back later to show how the unclaimed teams did, I'll be setting up the randomization for the other USA auto card, and there are a few orphan cards to choose from to add to your stack.

I atleast need the Martin Upper Deck Portraits card shown.

Hey thanks for the break plug Thorzul and great cards. I was worried a bit after seeing the single card from the last El Cheapo, but I figured it was worth a shot.

The team name on the Donruss Threads card looks like it's written on one of those anti theft devices in card boxes (among other things).
