Spring Group Break - NL West

At last, we reach the end of this group break. It's been fun, and a little bit harrowing. During the sorting process I narrowly avoided being overtaken by Deion Sanders's juicy curl, but made it out alive. Here we go.

Team: Padres
Buyer: BS
Whole Hog: Joe Carter
Best Card: 2011 Topps Chrome #98 Heath Bell Orange Refractor

I remember tracking down 1991 Grand Slammers inserts when building my set. A whole lot of Joe Carter Slammers showed up in this pile.

Team: Diamondbacks
Buyer: Thorzul
Whole Hog: No one
Best Card: 2006 Fleer Ultra #56 Brandon Webb

Chosen because of, ummmmmmm, deh pehrple?

Team: Dodgers
Buyer: Spiegel83
Whole Hog: Eric Karros, Raul Mondesi
Best Card: 1999 Fleer Ultra World Premiere #7 Adrian Beltre

Just a nice, unassuming insert card. Neighbors described it as, "quiet, friendly, pretty much kept to itself."

Team: Giants
Buyer: arpsmith
Whole Hog: Oddly, a 1999 Topps Draft Picks card featuring Chris Jones and Jeff Urban
Best Card: 1988 Fleer Star Stickers #126 Will Clark

Just not a great lot of Giants cards, at least to an outsider.

Team: Rockies
Buyer: Thorzul
Whole Hog: Dante Bichette
Best Card: 1995 Flair Outfield Power #2 Dante Bichette

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Dante Fucking Bichette.
