Domo Arigato: Annie & Colin @ Sports Card Radio

Earlier this month, I entered a unique group break over at Sports Card Radio's Fan Forum. I typically don't enter group breaks, but this particular one was different.

First: The break included six boxes of cards: two retail boxes of 2012 Topps Series 1 baseball, a box of 2011 Bowman Platinum baseball, a box of 2010 Bowman Chrome baseball, a box of 2011 Panini Plates & Patches football, and a box of 2011 Panini Limited football.

Second: You got to pick the team(s) you were interested in. The thing that makes it unique was that you entered bids, like a silent auction. I ended up winning the San Francisco Giants for $21.

Third: You received ALL of the cards pulled, not just the inserts & hits.

Fourth: All of the money raised (over $300) will be donated to the National Kidney Foundation.

Here's a quick look at what I received from my break:

2012 Topps base cards

2011 Bowman Platinum base cards

A "Lot" Full of Gold

2011 Plates & Patches #151 Marcus Cannon RC (011/100)

2011 Limited #111 Terrell Davis (056/499)

And last, but not least... a 2012 Topps Golden Giveaway card...

Which was redeemed for this...

Lol... it's a digital coin, which is pretty much worthless to me. But... at least it's of someone I collect.

Thanks again Annie & Colin. This was an amazing event... well organized... and with good intentions. Let me know when you guys are doing it again, and I will surely be there.

Have a great weekend everyone. Sayonara!
