The Fan Favorites Break

Choose Your Team, REDUCED to Only $10 a Piece. Breaking on February 26th at 9:30 PM CST.

'04 Fan Favorites, '11 Lineage, and '12 Archives Breaking 2/27
After a couple big hits from The Finest Break, I am hoping to keep our card mojo rolling this break.  We will be opening three boxes in The Fan Favorite Break, all of which revolves around the Topps currently named Archive line of cards.

In 2004 it was called Topps All-Time Fan Favorites Cards, a 150 card set that featured 122 different autographs - each box containing two. It is hard to find a definitive auto list because the cards were not numbered, and there were so many different signers.  Click here to see the Autographs that Beckett has listed within the set.  Some great names like Stan Musial, Nolan Ryan, Don Zimmer, Cal Ripken, and Tony Gwynn to just name a few signers. 2011 Topps Lineage hobby box features two autographs, one relic card, a box topper, and numerous inserts. There are some big auto hits in this product of current and past players, as well as a few nice relic pulls of Hall of Fame players. Finally is a hobby box of 2012 Topps Archives. This set also includes possible box toppers, along with a SSP Bryce Harper card and a Yu Darvish Fan Favorite autograph, among many other current and past players. Like Lineage, it is loaded with inserts as well and if you collected cards in the 80's and 90's this is a fun set, in my opinion.

There are six guaranteed autographs, as well as one relic card in this break.  To sweeten the deal I am going to kick in four autographs of my own to bump the total to10 in the break. The four autographs from my PC will be randomned off to our hitless teams, and will come from either 2011 Lineage or 2012 Archives that I have previously opened.

Because of the wide variety of cards and autographs in this break, all teams will cost $12 a piece. Click on the link below to purchase. The break will take place on February 26th at 9:30 PM CST and as always will be broadcast and recorded on my BlogTV page.

1.  The break will take place on  Wednesday February 26th at 9:30 PM CST and will be broadcast and recorded on my BlogTV channel. (
2.  All cards will be shipped - Hits and valuable cards sent in penny/toploaders and commons in team bags.
4.  There are 6 guaranteed autographs and 1 guaranteed relic in this break.
5.  If a multi-player card is pulled, it will be randomed off between the teams featured on the card, unless all but one team featured on the card forfeits their chance at the card.  If multiple identical cards featuring multiple teams they will be evenly distributed between the teams.
6.  If a card is pulled that does not indicate a team, the card will be awarded to the team the player played with the longest during his career.  Hall of Fame induction team will be the tie breaker. If a card is pulled that is non-baseball related it will be randomned off between all hitless teams.
7.  There is a chance to pull an expired redemption card in this break.  The participant, not myself, is responsible for contacting Topps to handle a possible redemption.
