Christmas El Cheapo Group Break: NL West

Gotta get this done, so it's one card each team, one card only.

Team: Padres
Buyer: BS
1989 Upper Deck #471 Roberto Alomar
I don't know if you caught the price sticker on it, but someone once wanted 75 cents for this card, thought better of it, and upped the price to five bucks. Not bloody likely. Aside from a Gwynn insert, not much to brag about for this team.

Team: Diamondbacks
Buyer: Thorzul
Nothing worth showing came from this lot.

Team: Dodgers
Buyer: Stealing Home
1994 Leaf Power Brokers #6 Mike Piazza
Fireworks, mullets, pie charts on the back???

Team: Rockies
Buyer: BS
2007 Topps #135 Troy Tulowitzki
I'm guessing most people already have this card, since packs of 2007 Topps came with the year 2000 census forms (WHAT???). But hey, at least it came with that fancy green penny sleeve.

Team: Giants
Buyer: BS
Okay, I'm going to break my one card rule here.
1971 Topps #19 Skip Pitlock, #108 John Cumberland, #128 Frank Johnson, and #251 Frank Reberger
These were the only '71s to come out of the lot for any NL West teams. Strictly speaking, the only other team this would put in play is the Dodgers, but there weren't any of those.

Some of these cards have been shipped, but the majority have not. I will try to get them out this week, along with those from the regular December break.
