August 27th Hit Recap! – CSB Group Breaks

Back again! We had an awesome night wednesday with baseball and football breaks. A couple of cases and also a dual box break. We enjoyed insta-hit 2014 Bowman Sterling Baseball, exquisite 2014 Upper Deck Exquisite Football, the sweet dual box break of 2014 Panini Immaculate and 2015 Topps Inception Football and finally the one and only 2013 Panini America’s Pastime. Just look at all the sweet cards down below.

The Dual Box Break of 2014 Panini Immaculate Football and 2015 Topps Inception Football delivered these beauties:
’14 Immaculate Kelvin Benjamin Rookie Jumbo Material | ’14 Immaculate Odell Beckham Jr Rookie Patch Auto 38/49 | ’15 Inception Amari Cooper Silver Signatures #/50.

In the 2014 Upper Deck Exquisite Football case we had a ton of awesome hits. These are just some of the gems:
Jimmy Garappolo Rookie Auto #/40 | Bishop Sankey Black Signatures 15/60 |
Barry Sanders Black Signatures 7/10 | John Elway Auto Red 2/7.

We had ourselves a darn sweet start to the 2014 Bowman Sterling Baseball half case break. In the very first pack we hit the first two hits down below. Aswell as the other three in the very same box! Imagine getting that box for yourself!
Kyle Schwarber Auto | Jose Abreu Orange Refractor Rookie Auto #/75 |
Javier Baez Die-Cut Auto #/30 | Joey Gallo Green Refractor Auto #/125 |
Grant Holmes Red Refractor Auto 1/1.

2014 Bowman Sterling Grant Holmes Auto 1/1

Finally we get to good old 2013 Panini America’s Pastime. A product that pretty much divides the entire collecting community into two sides. Either they like it or they utterly hate it. In the two cases we did on wednesday we got three 1/1’s! Three! I’ll just shut up now. Enjoy:
Todd Cunningham Rookie Black 1/1 | Jon Jay Pastime Signatures Black 1/1 |
Juan Lagares Rookie Black All Star Patch 1/1.
