It's hard to believe we're halfway home in the group break already! I guess thats what happens when there's only 2 boxes to bust! I'm not going to scan any regular refractors in this box since they aren't really that rare. So without further ado, lets bust 'em!
Box 2, Pack #1
183 Matt Holliday - Cardinals
102 Brandon Maurer - Mariners
189 Alfredo Marte Refractor - Diamondbacks
153 Dan Straily - A's
47 Jake Peavy - White Sox
68 Paul Konerko - White Sox
214 Eric Hosmer - Royals
167 Brandon Phillips - Reds
We're off to a bit of a slow start for box #2. I hope the luck starts to turn around.
30 Adam Warren - Yankees
107 Carlos Martinez Refractor - Cardinals
93 Brandon Boggs - Astros
201 Adam Dunn - White Sox
154 Nick Franklin - Mariners
177 Mike Moustakas Refractor - Royals
190 Adam LaRoche - Nationals
130 Kyuji Fujikawa - Cubs
67 Ryan Vogelsong - Giants
132 Ricky Nolasco - Marlins
39 Mike Zunino Refractor - Mariners
41 Jayson Werth - Nationals
Still kinda blah packs right now. We're only 5 packs in.
156 Mike Kickham - Giants I saw Kickham pitch here in Richmond for the Flying Squirrels (Double-A farm team for the Giants)
85 Bruce Rondon - Tigers
189 Alfredo Marte Rookie Autograph - Diamondbacks
Nice hit for the D'backs. They weren't claimed so somebody got a random autograph!
33 Marcell Ozuna - Marlins
118 Mariano Rivera - Yankees
CC-JR Jose Reyes Chrome Connections - Blue Jays
27 Rob Brantly - Marlins
106 Jered Weaver - Angels
1 Mike Trout - Angels
175 Clayton Kershaw - Dodgers
72C-SS Stephen Strasburg 1972 Topps Chrome - Nationals
Judson is hogging all the '72 Topps Chromes!
110 Matt Magill - Dodgers
70 Josh Hamilton - Angels
I still can't get used to see him in an Angles uni.
10 Derek Jeter - Yankees
19 Adrian Gonzalez - Dodgers
92 Dustin Pedroia - Red Sox
There's a lot of big money players in this pack!
86 Angel Pagan - Giants
196 Jarrod Parker - A's
176 Wilin Rosario - Rockies
We are still looking for some colored refractors somewhere in this box and the whole break for that matter!
129 Jason Kubel - Diamondbacks
126 Anthony Rendon - Nationals
149 Yonder Alonso - Padres
123 Todd Frazier - Reds
150 Justin Verlander - Tigers
133 Will Middlebrooks - Red Sox
72C-DB Dylan Bundy 1972 Topps Chrome - Orioles
Almost halfway thru the box I finally get an Oriole card
49 Andrew McCutchen - Pirates
210 Gerrit Cole - Pirates
125 Dylan Bundy - Orioles
5 Lucas Duda Refractor - Mets
151 Justin Wilson - Pirates
Back to back packs with the young Orioles ace-in-training!
164 Alex Wood - Braves
HOOOOO LLLLLEEEEEEEEEE SSSSSMMMMMMMMOOOOOOKKKKEEEEEESSSSSS. I seriously cannot beleive my eyes and I have goosebumps. At the beginning of the break I was hoping for a Bundy or Machado autographed rookie card but this is even better! I hope this doesn't count
as our second autograph from the box since is kind of an insert card. BTW, the Red Hot rookies fall 1 in every 4945 packs. So that means since there are 10 subjects in the set the already astronomical odds of pulling a Bundy becomes in in every 49,450 packs! I will probably never pull a better card in my lifetime!
83 Shin-Soo Choo - Reds
207 Miguel Montero - Diamondbacks
208 Cliff Lee - Phillies
142 David Wright Blue Refractor #d 118/199
Wow a really nice looking card for the Mets. I like that the Blue border isn't quite as dark this year!

96 Yoenis Cespedes - A's
136 Albert Pujols - Angels
179 Aaron Hicks - Twins
54 Brett Lawrie Refractor - Blue Jays
192 Jake Odorizzi - Rays
81 Starling Marte - Pirates
48 Andre Ethier - Dodgers
195 Curtis Granderson Refractor - Yankees
36 Jim Johnson - Orioles
69 Brad Zeigler - Diamondbacks
172 MARK TEIXEIRA RED REFRACTOR #D 3/5 - YANKEES
Wow, I'm no Yankees or Teixiera fan but you can't deny the fact that there are only 5 of these in the world!
88 Tyler Skaggs - Diamondbacks
182 Paco Rodriguez - Dodgers
60 Jonathan Niese - Mets
29 Shane Victorino X-fractor - Red Sox
140 Alex Gordon - Royals

So the group break comes to a close. I hope everyone has enjoyed it. I love busting packs and I love interaction with other bloggers so I love doing group breaks. Dave and Adam's always gives away free packs of cards with any order over $75 so I decided to get the 4 2010 Upper Deck Hobby packs. I'll be including those in the packages. I'm not going to list them here so there will be a little surprise in your packages when you get them.
I'm going to be very busy this weekend building my workshop/shed but I hope to get all of the packages mailed out on Monday.
