Got a couple jumbo boxes of 2016 Series I last night - have the inserts sorted, will probably get base done over the weekend.

The cards look great, solid photography, no borders. My only complaint is the collation of the inserts (and maybe the base, we will see). I believe I should have gotten a much wider array of cards than I did.

Nothing special in either box, got the required GU, Manufactured GU and AU, so the excitement of opening the boxes was somewhat tempered.

They need to get rid of the buyback inserts, especially since they are now color coding the foil to tell you how "rare" it is. You can stamp anything you want on a 1988 common...it is still just that a 1988 common.

Everything is for trade - looking for Kirby Puckett or vintage that I need. Phil Hughes or Joba Chamberlain. Jeter, A-Rod, Ichiro, Pujols, Trout, Harper or Bryant. OR, the only card I would trade for from this set is First Pitch 7 Jordan Speith - would like to get a couple of those.

Thanks for looking and I hope your breaks are better than mine!!

Might be interested in the Joba Chamberlain GU'd - need to check my lists to see which of the two (or both) that I need. Thanks.

Hey Andrew, you are right. The collation was horrible. For the very first time I did not get a set from a hobby box. Let me know if you have #325 and/or #348. I will buy them off you if you have them.

Thanks,

Bryon
