    Thanks Kirk, a little dissapointed overall but this product does always have some nice stuff. I will probably be listing most of it and see if I might get another box later.

    plus the redemption, of course.

    Best thing about the break was some decent PC items and the Reggie Jackson was sweet. The oddest thing about the break was the Adam Jones #/99 was on card and the Trevor Bauer #/24 was a sticker! :headbang:

    Yes that auto sticker/auto on-card is strange. Guess it has something to do with the subset of "Tribute to the Stars"? The "Stars" get the fancier design and sticker? Adam Jones isn't a "Star"? Tell that to O's fans. :)

    The background color variations are cool.

    Thanks for sharing.
