    Sports Cards Mania

    I opened a Diamond Kings hobby box and a Bowman blaster tonight. Both sets are absolutely beautiful. The DK had some beautiful hits including my first 1 of 1 (below) and an Evan White auto/bat/jersey card and a Buster Posey jersey card. In related news, I'm spending way too much money on cards.

    Yes, that format is possible. If the cat herding isn't too bad with this one, I'd consider doing that (or similar) in a future break.

    TBD. Assuming there's enough interest, I'll come up with a couple of options and put a poll together. But your thinking is in line with mine, something like a half case of Bowman or similar. But I'm open to ideas.

    Many are random team breaks - you have 30 slots and then use random.org to assign slots to teams. Definitely not a preferred setup for people who only want a specific team, but if you collect across MLB, it works. There are other types - draft of the hits (after opened), player drafts/auctions...
