The Finest Case is busted

Videos will be up in an hour or two. THERE IS NO AUDIO. I videod the uncasing in one, mini boxes 1-8 in another, and 9-16 in the other. Its about an hour of video as it takes a long time to open all of these packs.

I will have the list of cards up tonight or tomorrow evening. Remember I will have to sort 480+ cards. There are 8 left over cards and I will random those off after I get them sorted.

The Uncasing.



Be patient with the video, vimeo has this problem with videos being nothing but black for a few hours.

Sweet! Can't wait to see what I got.

Thanks for the group break, especially since you aren't getting any cards out of it.

stusigpi said...

No problem, i really enjoyed doing it. Just like my massive card give away back in November/December, I didn't really know what I was getting myself into. Its a lot of cards and of course trying to not make any mistakes what so ever.

I was worried the video won't be of high enough quality,etc, etc.

thenennthinning said...

When listing the cards, would it also be too much trouble to say who gets what so we don't have to keep flipping back and forth? Thanks :)

Captain Canuck said...

sweet jesus jeff... tell me that the only reason you used your left hand is because you needed your right for the camera.
If you're a lawyer, AND left handed...... demon spawn...
I'm just sayin'....

beardy said...

What's your problem with lefties Canuck? Don't make me come up there!

stusigpi said...

I am safely a righty. I am going to list the cards by person that got them.

I used to play catcher so my left hand had to be useful, that's why I can do things left handed too.

stusigpi said...

Vimeo is being a pain so it may be a bit before the two videos are up. The files are too big for the youtube people.

thenennthinning said...

awesome thanks, it's also nice to have some sound and commentary on breaks

stusigpi said...

My camera doesn't do sound. Plus, no one wants to hear me talk.

houstoncollector said...

Can't wait for these...c'mon AStros!

As far as the patches? There's none I really want, so if I get any they're likely tradable :)

Motherscratcher said...

I haven't watched the video yet, but I'd like to be the first to offer Groat my congratulations.

And, since I'm an Indians fan I'd also like to offer him anything he wants for that Sizemore. I'll even throw in a bunch of 1989 Topps.

stusigpi said...

I have the video from the first half intact. I think video messed it up when it converted it.

Anyway, Motherscratcher you did slightly ok as well.

grant said...

Not sure what the redemtion #1 is but I can't hear the video. ( not sure about the refractors either anyone got any input on those for me?) So I'll check back 2morow GOt a hit though! and I guess I'll need to give you my address! Grant old school pack buster

stusigpi said...

The redemption #1 is the rookie redemption that Topps will announce sometime in the future. You redeem it online and they will send the card out to you when the card is ready.

houstoncollector said...

I would have done better burning my money.

I'm not blaming anyone, but .....bust a case and the only thing I get is a refractor? Shit.

Oh well.

stusigpi said...

This was a tough break for some like the Captain, Houston and Bebla.

I am going to throw some cards into their package to make up for it.

Bebla: Let me know what your favorite team is so I can dig some stuff up for you.

Dan said...

is there going to be a trading post? or should we plead right here? Arfmax,if you don't hate the Yankees, I'll trade you my Damon blue for your Utley blue...

thenennthinning said...

Motherscratcher or Steve K, I would love to trade for the Gillaspie patch please

Groat said...

Hey Motherscratcher, I'll trade you the printing plate for your Zimmerman blue. The Nats are my local team and even though they're 4 and 14 I still love 'em.

Motherscratcher said...

Groat - Are you serious? I was just kidding but I'll make that trade if you want to. It was just really cool to see my favorite player as the case hit.

Nennth - I'll trade you the Gillespie patch for any of your cards including the redemption. They're all about the same to me.

Jeff - Yeah, I'm excited. I did really well on this thing. Thanks for putting it all together. You did an outstanding job.

Motherscratcher said...

Nennth - what I meant is any of the cards OR the redemption. Not both, obviously.

Groat said...

Mother, I'm absolutely serious. I'd rather have a hometown player I enjoy collecting, and you get the same in the trade. Everybody's happy all around.

Pop Startled said...

Ugh...stupid work filter won't let me view the videos OR the document. Sucks...it's probably fine, since I'm sure I didn't get anything.

Thanks for doing the break!

Groat said...

Here's your stuff Pop. Have fun at work.

7. Pop startled aka chuck (paid)
Mat Gamel Patch Refractor /75
Prince Fielder Blue
Mark Teixeira Blue
Edinson Volquez Green
Dice K Green
Ian Kinsler Refractor

beardy said...

Steve K, would you be willing to trade me the Adam Jones Blue Refractor? Look through my cards, and see if there's anything you'd want.

Pop Startled said...

Thanks for the assist, Groat!

How come you're rooting for the Nats instead of for the evil O's empire? At the very least, MacPhail's assembled some good prospects...the Nats are either in for a continuation of the never-ending rebuilding through the draft or their going to have to eventually spend their way out of last place.

Don't get me wrong, I'll still go to Nats park for a delicious half-smoke.

Did anyone get a Hanley and would that anyone be interested in trading?

Motherscratcher said...

OK Groat, it's a deal. Best Break Ever.

Offy said...

I've yet to watch the videos yet, but if anyone wants to trade away any Sox or redemptions then let me know. The only card from the break that I definitely want to keep is the redemption card. Anything else is up for grabs. I also have cards from a box that I broke open myself that are available if you want to trade after the cards are sent out. Just let me know what you are looking for if you've got Sox or redemptions to trade.

thenennthinning said...

Motherscratcher: how bout the gillaspie patch for the bobby parnell patch?

Steve K: would you trade for your gillaspie too? I guess he's about the only giants player worth getting in this product

Motherscratcher said...

Nennth - I'll have to check Beckett for the book value - just kidding. Sure I'll take the Parnell (whoever he is). Done.

I love these breaks.

thenennthinning said...

Motherscratcher - LOL, you almost had me there buddy. Yea, I really enjoy these group breaks because they're fun and with people you kind of know (through blogging, even though I am semi-retired)

Ross said...

What no one wants my Green Dejesus or Cabrera?

And not a single Brad Nelson offer?
C'mon its a Blue Brad even......

Pffft whatevea yo this is some fine green blue mojo your missing out on suckas ;)

houstoncollector said...

Beardy: would you do the Oswalt refractor for the Michael Young Refractor I got?

zman40 said...

All of the patch cards are signed, aren't they? If so, Motherscratcher- I'll trade you the rookie redemption gold for the Fowler patch. Let me know if you are interested.

Motherscratcher said...

Z-man - Sure, rookie redemption for the Fowler patch it is.

beardy said...

houstoncollector: you can just have the oswalt. it means nothing to me, and you got really un-lucky with this break.

Motherscratcher said...

In the spirit of Beardy's generosity I'd like to offer one of my cards to either Bebla, or our fine Canadian friend Capt. Canuck, whichever of them responds to this first. They really took it in the nards on this break.

Is there anyone else out there who did well willing to donate a card to the third party?

stusigpi said...

Please have all trades completed by 6pm Wednesday the 29th.

Bebla will receive extra cards from my personal collection. The man bought two spots and ended up with almost nothing. Houston and Captain didnt do any better so they get cards from me too.

grant said...

Thanks for the BREAK! I appreciated it as my first break It was awsome I don't know anything about finest so I'm not sure what the redemtion #1 is for and what number the refractors are I wsa unable to hear and watch some of the idoe so I was'nt sure what hits were my to actually see whaat kindof refracors or what redetion #1 was ? a R/C a refractor? not sure. Anyway If antone could provide me with that ifo I did see some cards in there I would like to trade for if I have anything worth trading. I guess I need to get you my addres as well. Once again great Break I'm glad this was my first I don't think I did all that bad for $25 ! grant old school pack buster

grant said...

BTW I need mariners cards here' I was slot #13

redemtion #1
Aubrey Huff ref.
Adrian Gonzalez Ref
and John Lackey ref.

Grant old school pack buster. AWSOME break again Thanx I'll be in eery break you got going from now on!

Offy said...

Grant,

If you don't get any other offers that you like, I pulled a blue Griffey refractor #/399 out of a box that I busted. I also got a gold King Felix #/50 in the break. I'd send both of those cards to you for the rookie redemption if you are interested.

--David said...

I'm keeping the Wright to give to a couple girls I know will appreciate it, but I'm willing too trade the other cards for any Tribers...

arfmax said...

Sorry Dan, no go on the Damon blue for the Utley blue, I am a Phillies fan born and bred, so I gotta keep Chase.
Thanks anyway!

shanediaz82 said...

Feel free to tear into me for asking a completely stupid question here, but how does everyone seem to know what they got already?

shanediaz82 said...

Disregard my last comment, that document finally loaded for me. Only two cards, oh well. I'm willing to trade either for any Red Sox...

grant said...

I would assume Redemtion #1 would be an auto of a Rookie or patch? IF not olly I'll take your trade for the griffey and the Gold King felix prbably might do it anyway but the only isse I have is the Gold is going for $19.00 and the Griifey sold for like $7 so I'll proabably be kicking myself in the butt but I do want those mariners cards. Get back with me asap otherwise we can do the trade after we get the cards you can check my blog or my Ebay so you know I'm on the up and up. Grant Old school pack buster

grant said...

Any one intersted in my aubrey huff, John lackey or adrian Gonzalez refractors? LMK Grant old school pack busters does'nt have to be an Item from this brea but I loved those ichoro's I seen well have to trade after the cards are sent if you wanna trade from another product. I have no need for the those three so better in your collection then mine. Grant
